You may know exactly what you want for your senior photoshoot, but you can’t achieve much without the right photographer. Whether you have just started your search or have been searching for a while, these tips will help.
By now, you probably have a good idea of what you want your senior photos to look like. What you need to make sure of is that a photographer’s overall style matches your preferences. Do you want images that are slightly moody and artistic, or would you prefer bright and playful photos? Browse through your photographer’s portfolio to find out more about their style.
Does your photographer have a consistent style, or does it differ across their website and social media profiles?
Your photographer might be able to work a camera, but this doesn’t mean they should be taking your senior photos. When reviewing potential photographers, look at whether they have specific experience with senior photoshoots.
It’s also essential to read through any customer testimonials to get a better idea of what you can expect when working with a particular photographer. Any mentions of industry awards are also a good sign.
Before you even start shopping around for a senior photographer, decide on a budget. This way, you can easily rule out potential photographers before you go to the trouble of reviewing their portfolios.
A photographer who has the lowest prices is usually a beginner. Most professional photographers charge more because of their experience and their premium quality services and lux products.
And lastly, once you find a senior photographer you’re happy with, don’t wait to book them. It’s also best to have a backup choice should your first photographer not be available.
