Why choose custom photography?
When you make an investment in photography, you want it to last a lifetime. Custom photography is an experience and an end product in which you get to choose the style and final look of your portraits. There are many factors that ultimately make up your final portraits. These may include the photographer’s style, location of your portrait session, clothing, props, lighting, mood, your vision and the final products you desire.
Photographers that offer custom photography have many different options available to you that fit your style. Most custom photographers have a very distinct style that helped you decide to chose them. They have the ability to make your experience tailored just for you as opposed to the chain store time limits and crowds.
Imagine getting your family dressed and ready for your portrait session. Usually that is the most stressful part of any of my sessions. Then you come and meet me and I am ready to go. With family sessions, we are usually done in less than an hour. I have had many dads tell me that was pretty painless and thank me for making it sooo easy and not stressful. Mainly, this is because we have talked before the session and I know what direction we want to go and have it mentally planned out.
Custom photography requires a level of commitment, an investment in time, money, and planning on the part of the client and requires a larger time commitment for the photographer as well.
