ing holidays and special events or people just wanting some quality images, there are a variety of photographer’s that you can find that would make a good fit to meet your style. Photography isnt something you need but a necessary. Then some people may ask why is pricing so high?
You aren’t just getting pictures. Your getting an item that will cherish for a lifetime, an image of a special stage in your life.
Your getting someone’s experience. Some more experience photographers may have other prices but you need to think, do you like this photographer style after seeing their portfolio? Do you want work like this? Do you want someone with their experience?
Besides photos, there is a process. Travel, set up, getting the right gear/ props, time spent. Some props may be provided depending on what the photographer has. This isn’t just about taking photos. As a photographer, we enjoy this. We want to spend our time and make sure everything goes right and the shoot goes well.
Then there’s editing. we use quality software to edit the photos. And if you request, order prints, albums . Yes these may cause a price but we make sure we them looking nice.
Price dont always mean skill level. Some people may like soemone else phtoot style or maybe the photographer offer a sepcific service that someone else deosnt.
In the world of professional photography some people may be confused what ” professional really entitles.
Everyone had different experience, so If your a semi new photographer but but have a good portfolio, does that make me a professional ? In my words yes. Some people may ask why should I pay this much for this certain photographer. Should I find someone with lower prices?
It basically depends on what you want. For example, if you see someone with years of experience, lots of gear, good reviews with high prices- then your getting type of service.
What about those with some experience but a good portfolio?
You see the photographer’s price and you can see if you want to hire them based on the quality
Either way, If you like their style or maybe the photographer offer’s a specific service that someone else doesnt..
