Very often we see photographers who are never without their cameras and are eagerly seeking an opportunity to raise their gear and shoot!
But when it comes to selecting your photographer to beautifully and suitably capture and preserve the story of your special occasion, such as those passionate moments of gracefully walking down the aisle, the first look, first kiss, first dance… surrounded with love and beautiful hope for a bright and joyful future with the love of your life,.. or those delightful memories when you excitedly have your loved family together for a fun day… or when you are filled with delight for your adorable little one to hold and love forever… it truly is the reliability and applied creativity of a professional you should be seeking.
For professional photographers, their art is not a hobby! They think of photography on a 24-hour basis. They eat, sleep and dream creatively. They couldn’t care less about the long hours, or how far they have to drive and walk to create a masterpiece.
Professional photographers generally academically pursue their passion as a career of life. They go to college, art schools, and study under other professional photographers to further fuel their love for their art. They join photography groups and organizations to keep their skills sharp, and frequently attend trade shows and workshops to continually hone their skills.
