We’ve all heard the saying “you get what you pay for”… with food, apparel, travel accommodations, and you guessed it—photography!
In a world where we are constantly bombarded with images and content, it can be tempting to book any mini session that pops up on our feeds so you have something to share on social media every few months. Hiring a photographer is an expense, but the way I see it, you should never settle when it comes to documenting the story of your love—and life! This is where a fine art photographer comes in.
Photographers with a fine art style offer more than just photos. A photojournalism approach allows us to find unique perspectives that tell a visual story. Let’s take a look at seven reasons to invest in a fine art photographer for your next special event.
1. Experience + Expertise
When you look at the price tag of some photographers, keep in mind that you’re not only paying for just photos, but for a skill set that has likely taken years to master! Fine art photographers have a deep understanding of their craft—they know how to capture the perfect shot, create the perfect lighting, and highlight the best features of their subject.
2. Attention to Detail
One of the standout qualities of a fine art photographer is their attention to detail. From the lighting to the composition, experienced photographers pay close attention to every detail to ensure that each image is perfect. This level of care is what sets them apart from other photography services.
3. Creative Vision
Really good photographers have a creative vision that allows them to see things in a unique way. Capturing memories goes beyond just ‘snapping’ a few pictures—it’s about telling stories through photography as an artform. With their artistic eye, you can guarantee that your memories will be timeless, authentic and full of life.
4. Elevated Experience
Fine art photographers understand the investment you’re making in them and the significance of your photos. That’s why they provide professional communication, guidance and support throughout the entire process. Whether you’re planning a wedding, engagement, or another family celebration, you deserve a photographer that will work closely with you to understand your vision, and bring it to life!
5. Timeless Photos
Everyone wants photos that will look just as beautiful today as they will fifty years from now. With their expertise and artistic vision, great photographers can help you create lasting images that are sure to become cherished family heirlooms. They will ensure that every moment, every emotion, and every cherished memory is captured exactly as it happened.
6. Return on Investment
That’s right, this business term totally applies to photography! Investing in a fine art photographer might seem like a big expense at the time, but I promise that your return on investment will be worth it! Think about it…if you’re scheduling a lot of portrait sessions but are never overjoyed with the result, you’ll probably end up spending just as much as you would investing in high quality photos.
7. You Deserve It!
Some people feel like they have no business booking a fine art photographer, but I’m here to tell you—you deserve it! Investing in photography means you are giving yourself the opportunity to preserve your most precious moments and celebrate the ones close to your heart. And what could be better or more beautiful than that?
