The reasons for hiring a professional photographer for your wedding are many. They include the following.
Professional photographers know the ins and outs of their equipment and use it merely as a toy to translate their visual imagery into a real breathtaking photograph. They control their equipment and the environment. They know when and where to use what and quickly adapt to new settings as per changing circumstances. Most importantly, they never compromise with the quality of camera and lenses and invest heavily in right set of equipment. They do not believe in one size (lens) fits all theory.
Professional photographers can shoot both in RAW and JPEG format with the same precision without losing on the quality of pictures. They do minimal post-processing and sometimes do not even need to edit the pictures (as their original work straight from the camera is already so beautiful). The professional photographer does all the hard work in the camera itself so that they don’t need to slog for days to post-process the pictures.
Reviews and Publicity
For professional photographers, their work itself is the advertisement. People know them by their work not by their bill boards or advertisements. They don’t need to spend money on branding and other publicity gimmicks. They will always get good client reviews and feedback and yet they will remain modest and grounded to the earth.
Website and Blogs
Professional photographers will have a thoughtfully designed and beautiful website. They will invest their time, efforts and money in the smallest details of their website to ensure ease of use and great visuals. You may also find them writing interesting blog posts and sharing their knowledge and experiences for free.
Curating the Work
Professional photographers will regularly curate their work and weed out the average ones from their portfolio. For them, less is more. They focus more on the quality than the number of photographs.
Personality and Nature
Professional photographers’ work is reflection of their personality, nature, mood and temperament. They follow their own signature style. Photography will be almost like their second nature and they can take amazing shots just instinctively.
Professional photographers will not devalue themselves by working for free (unless it is a social cause) or at a price much below than their asking price. It is more difficult to engage in any kind of negotiations with them when it comes to pricing. They usually quote a fair price for their quality of work and don’t engage in fish-market bargaining.
Professional photographers do not heavily rely on photography tips, tutorials, and rules available online or otherwise. They do a lot of experiments with what they read and find the right and wrong for themselves.
