What You Should Expect from a Professional Photographer
Jan 10, 2020 | By: A Charmed Life Photography
These days nearly everyone has a camera, but not everyone with a camera is a professional photographer. By definition, a professional photographer is someone who obtains more than 50% of their income from photography. However, there's more to professional photography than income and amazing pictures. Here's what you should expect from a professional photographer and things to consider when choosing the right one for you.
Experience & Expertise
The ability to maneuver a series of camera settings at just the right moment is essential for capturing beautiful wedding photos. Being a skilled user of professional-grade equipment, comprehending different types of light, knowing what angles work best, and having the ability to work under pressure, can only be achieved through experience. With over ten years of business behind me, I've acquired a lot of experience and refined my skills as a photographer.
My secure, mobile-friendly website displays nicely on multiple browsers and has a user interface that is easy to navigate. Having a modern and secure website means prospective clients can visit my site from their hand-held devices, and our correspondence remains confidential.
My online portfolio allows easy viewing of my shooting and processing style, allowing prospects to view the quality and consistency of my work.
Selecting and ordering the types of images you want is easy and secure through my website's online gallery. In addition to DVD's and USB's, I offer customized cards and books, wrapped canvases, and prints with framing available upon request.
Flexible Pricing Options
I work with all types of budgets. If my popular package options don't suit your needs, I will be happy to customize a package that does.
Member of PPA
Professional Photographers of America is a formal organization that regulates the quality of work done by photographers associated with their group. They also help photographers enhance their skills with informative forums, conventions, and continued education. The PPA boosts industry standards and lists photographers who uphold those standards.
Licensed & Insured
A Charmed Life Photography is a licensed business, but more importantly, it is insured. Being insured protects me and my equipment. It also protects my clients from financial liability when I am working on location.
Willing to Travel
I'm happy to travel within 50 miles at no extra cost to you. For an additional fee, I will meet you in Charleston, South Carolina, or areas of North Carolina.
In the past ten years, I've done hundreds of weddings and many different types of portrait sessions. Book a session with me, and I'll communicate every step of the way, so there's no guessing involved. When emotions run high, I remain calm and get the job done. I do my best to get your images into post-production, so the finished product is available to you as quickly as possible.
I'm proud to say that A Charmed Life Photography has many happy customers and five-star reviews! It's hard to gauge if I'm easy to work with by looking at my portfolio. Having such good reviews is the best type of advertising. It's an honest and straight forward representation of my work from the client's perspective.
