Here is a quick list of what you need to pay attention to when hiring an Orlando photographer:
1. Portfolio is very important! Make sure that you like the style of the photos displayed: either candid or posed. Can you see the emotions in the photographs? Are they done in studio or on location? Some photographers have a very distinctive and recognizable style. Other Orlando photographers are more diverse. Also, the photographer portfolio should be recently updated. If the photos are outdated, that means that the photographer doesn’t care about showing their updated work, or that their best work could be years or months behind them.
- their experience
- their credentials
- the location recommendations
- local makeup artists they use
- outfits/clothing recommendations
- the collections or packages offered.
A good photographer likes spending time on the phone or in person with the clients to get to know them better.
3. During the phone or in person consultation make sure you like your Orlando photographer’s personality. You need to “click” and like the way the photographer carries herself in order to be comfortable in front of her camera. A cute foreign accent doesn’t hurt. 😉
4. Triple check the cost of the session. You shouldn’t hire a photographer only based on their price. Of course you can’t afford a $2000 photographer on a $250 budget, but if you want quality work which you’ll cherish forever, you can save up some money or ask for payment plans.
Professional photography is an investment. Good investments aren’t cheap, so you should be 100% sure that the experience, education, recommendations and the portfolio is worth the price you are paying. After all, the photo memories created during the session will be priceless. So when you are ready to find the right Orlando photographer for yourself – keep these tips in mind.
