Today I had the sweet little Sawyer in my studio. He is celebrating a lot of big events in his life right now. He turned 2 this past week and next month he's going to be a big brother! He loves his baby sister already. Simply adorable!

Why Hire a Professional: Digital Editing

I posted in my "Planning the Perfect Wedding" series about why you should hire a professional. I thought I'd share some examples of the digital editing aspect of it. When you hire a professional, you are hiring someone who can make your photos amazing. I never give my clients an image straight off my memory card. At the very least, I enhance every image by adding a color boost to create a vivid and vibrant image and sharpen every image to give it a crisp, clean look. For portraits I add additional fine-tuning to make the image truly wonderful. With digital photography, there are so many possibilities for images, they can remain in color, given vintage effect, given texture, made into black and white. The possibilities are only limited by your photographer's imagination.

Planning the Perfect Wedding: Finding the Right Photographer

With so many photographers out there it can be an overwhelming experience trying to find the right one. There are so many factors to weigh: their style, location, your budget, just to name a few. But remember to look a little deeper. Sure it’s is great to find a photographer who has wonderful work posted on their website, but there is more to your wedding photography experience than the final shots. Ask for names and contact information of couples who have had the photographer at their wedding. They will be able to offer insights about their experiences with the photographer.
