Custom photography is a unique and highly personalized experience with an amazing outcome- artwork you can cherish for many years to come. Here's why it's worth the investment.
Chain stores bring in lots of people for a short, cookie cutter experience. You, as the client, tend to have very little say in what happens during your short session, and then they move on to the next client.
When you choose an independent photographer, they will take the time to get to know you personally and build the session based on your preferences.
Doing this requires a lot of time and effort. Your actual photo session may only take an hour or two, but your photographer has probably invested 10-15 hours in you.
Custom photographers want to focus on quality and not quantity. And they also offer many different custom-designed products.
You may have been drawn to an independent photographer because of their distinct style and portfolio. These things grow with experience, for example, I have 14 years of experience and education. That is part of your investment when you hire me.
Lastly, most custom photographers have invested many thousands of dollars in equipment along with being completely insured and yearly continuing education. If you would like to invest in a true custom photographer (or have any questions at all!) feel free to give me a call!
