5 Tips to help you find the right photographer | Oahu Family Photographer | San Francisco Family Photographer
What’s the number one thing you look for when you’re searching for the perfect family, maternity, newborn, or couples photographer on Oahu or in the San Francisco Bay Area? Is it price, style, availability, locations, outfits? If you’ve been looking for a photographer you’ve probably realized that it can be a little overwhelming at times and I’m here to help you in your search with my 5 best tips on finding the perfect family photographer.
TIPS TO HELP YOU FIND THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER
1.VIEW THEIR PORTFOLIO
Always view their portfolio. You might find that photographers update their social media accounts or blog more than their portfolio page, so be sure to check that as well. For me, it is very hard to update my portfolio page with recent images. I have SO many photoshoots that I simply don’t get to post anywhere because there are just too many. So if you don’t see your images up on my website, it does not mean that I don’t like your photos! It is most likely that I did not have a second to download and upload the photos the correct way (for SEO purposes) right when your images were finished.
2. DO YOU LIKE HOW THE PHOTOS ARE EDITED?
Do you like light and airy editing style? dark and moody? creamy colors? Pay attention to how the photographer edits so you know what to expect.
3. WHAT IS THEIR STYLE?
Look at the style of the photographer. How do they pose their subjects? What outfits are their subjects wearing?
Do you like the locations that the photographer uses? I have a list of locations that I shoot at regularly in order to create consistency for my clients so they know what to expect, but I also have a package that would allow clients to select a different location not listed.
How responsive is the photographer with answering your questions? At least for me, I try to respond asap. If I haven’t responded by the end of the day definitely plan on emailing me or texting me at 415-343-2377.
