Finding the Perfect Photographer for You

Posted on: June 3, 2019

Finding the perfect Orlando photographer is more than just a quick Google search. You need to take some time to ask yourself some questions: What are these pictures for? Are you looking to update your headshot or are you looking to capture memories? Do you envision dark or bright photos? When looking for a photographer, make sure to keep these questions in mind.

What’s Your Why?
Before you start researching photographers, figure out your “why.” Why are you getting pictures taken? Who are they for? What are they for? Are they for your portfolio or your living room wall? Do you want to be able to give these pictures as gifts? How important are these photos to you? While these might seem like obvious questions, they’re often overlooked. But these questions are all crucial when hiring a photographer. If you’re looking for headshots, you’re going to want to look for different qualities than if you’re looking to capture your baby’s first steps. Make sure you know why you want photos taken — that way you’re investing in the right photographer.

Portfolio
Photographers are artists, and each one has a different style. Each photographer will see a moment in a different light, and you want to make sure you’re seeing those moments with the same view. Take some time to visualize what you want your pictures to look like. Do you want photographs that are bright and full of light? Or do you want darker, moodier pictures? Your photographer’s portfolio should reflect the style you’re picturing.  

Location
You found the perfect photographer! Their portfolio looks exactly like your Pinterest board, and they’re… 52.7 miles away. When looking for a photographer, it’s crucial to keep location in mind. Find out if your dream photographer is location specific or willing to travel. It’s worth paying travel costs to work with a photographer you love!

When looking for an Orlando photographer, make sure that you and the photographer are on the same page.
