I love photographing families. As an photographer in Indianapolis, IN, I get to meet people with different visions, which helps keep my creativity alive and well. But what should you, the client, consider when choosing the best photographer to meet your family's needs?
Dark & Moody. Dark and moody photography is the contrast between dark and light. Think dark backgrounds with sharp, brighter subjects to give the photos a dramatic, romantic look.
Light & Airy. Light and airy photos are all about the light. This editing styles mutes colors to give a more soft, bright look.
Matte. The matte effect is just how is sounds...the colors and light are matted to give photos are more muted, hazy feel. This editing style is a popular trend today.
Black & White. And, of course, we have to remember the classic, black and white photos. Be clear with your photographer on if you want black and white photos included in your gallery.
We must consider our wallets, right? This is where you'll have to do some shopping. Not all photographers post their investment plans on their webpages. It may take a little work, but your family memories are worth it! Find the photographer that will fit your budget, but don't compromise on the quality of work. You want the best portraits for your home. Remember, these photos will be with you for a lifetime.
Communication is key in all aspects of life. Look for photographers who keep your needs in mind from beginning to end. These photographers are well-organized and prompt. They will be quick in their responses and usually have a survey and/or contract ready at booking. Surveys help photographers best serve you and your family. We want to make sure we are meeting your vision for the photoshoot. Contracts make sure that all expectations are clearly communicated.
