The search for a photographer can be tough. There are many out there and some amateurs disguised as professionals. One thing I’ve noticed in people's hunt is that the search seems to be solely price based rather than quality & heart based.
If you value great photography and having great images to cherish forever your decision won't be solely based on price, it will include a myriad of other important criteria. There should be many criteria that come into play when selecting the perfect photographer. Education, vibe & style, personality, professionalism, quality of images, level of fun & adventure, and soul connection. Price is a consideration but it isn’t the only one.
Sure we all have a budget but we also all know that you get what you pay for. Would you hire your Aunt Molly to work on your computer if it broke down? NO, you would take your computer to a professional- someone trained and educated to fix computers. So why would you put your most important captured memories from your wedding day, family portrait, company branding images, images that tell who you are & the story of your event in the hands of someone who doesn't even know what an F-stop is or does?
The point is is that QUALITY MATTERS. With quality you get a professional- someone who is highly educated, who is ready for any lighting situation, how to pose individuals and groups so they look great, someone who deeply cares about the end product, someone who deeply cares about YOU! So in your search remember to search with your heart and not just with your pocketbook.
I have been taking horse riding lessons for about a year now and am totally in love. My teacher is definitely one of the best and after each lesson I feel like a better human. Partly from my teachers words and partly from the horse I ride, Zipper. I learn so much about myself every time I get on Zipper- it's a true blessing. I was lucky enough to have my teacher let his horses run together while I captured images of their beauty & essence with my signature Soultography.
Horses are so magical- they are so in tune with everything that is happening around them- I notice that they are way more aware than most of us humans. They are truly present- we can learn a lot from them:) . . This image and the others in this feed are available for purchase. Connect for purchasing information.
