Are you looking for family photos in London ?
Choosing a family photographer is an important decision. It's also a big responsibility that requires careful consideration. Here are some things to consider when choosing a family photographer in London.
Think about your budget, their pricing and service
You should also take into account how much you are willing to pay for the service. Many photographers offer packages with different levels of services. This means that you can choose between paying less for fewer services or paying more for more services. Keep in mind the pricing structure can be very confusing. Very often, photographers offer a low basis fee and the images are extra. Compare prices with all images and not just 5 or 10 because most likely you love the whole gallery and decide to upgrade at the end.
I offer all-inclusive pricing with a higher upfront cost but no extra surprises at the end.
Google reviews and reverences
If you're looking for a family photographer who has a good reputation, then you need to do some research online. Look at reviews and testimonials posted by other parents on Google or Facebook. Instagram and Facebook following numbers have little impact on the service offered, photo session and final portraits. Ask friends and relatives for recommendations and references before hiring a family photographer. This will give you insight into how the photographer works with clients and whether he/she has worked with other families in the past.
Are they experienced
A good family photographer will have years of experience taking photos of families. You should also ask them how often they take photos of children. It's not uncommon for photographers to specialize in certain areas such as newborn photography, maternity photography or weddings. I always recommend choosing a Photographer that is specialised in Families and not your wedding photographer. The more families, pregnant mamas and newborns a photographer has photographed the better he is not only with angles, but posing, cues and handling specific emotions. It's needless to say that if you are looking for a wedding photographer, the same applies and I would strongly recommend using a photographer who is not only specialised in weddings but also experienced.
Will your memories be remembered?
A good family photographer will always offer products.
A photographer who only offers digital photos doesn't care what happens after he had you as a customer. It's an unfinished service, at least in my opinion.
If we are really honest for a minute then we all have to admit to having a phone full of family photos. Additional to my phone storage, I have thousands stored on the cloud and always forget to print the memories or finalise the family album I keep planning in my head.
A professional photographer always wants you to not only have digitals but to have memories printed on your wall and Albums to look through. It's so easy to forget about printing, designing an album and buying frames, why not let someone else take care of it and receive hassle-free your high-end products.
I promise you the quality, we as professionals, can offer you is unmatched!
