It seems like, with the increase in camera quality on everyone’s cell phones, everyone thinks they are professional photographers; and even though we can all take good quality pictures, there is still a niche for professional photographers. People don’t realize all the background work that goes into professional pictures and underestimate the importance of capturing beautiful moments in ways they want to be remembered. Professional photographers take a lot of care into their props, location, and lighting; in fact, many of them spend weeks preparing for a single photo session. All this is done to create a perfect picture for you to hang on your walls like the artwork they are. Even though quick snapshots can be fun from your phone, you get to truly appreciate the beauty within your family and friends and memories when the love and care are put into the picture itself. I’ve listed a few times when you should hire a professional photography company below:

when to hire a professional photographer company

1. Weddings

Of course, this is the first on the list; everyone, everywhere seems to understand the importance of capturing those gorgeous pictures, engulfed in love and perfection. The moments captured in wedding photos will live on forever and the photography company will give you the opportunity to perfect each shot with photoshop. Let’s face it, no one wants to see that blemish on their face when looking back on wedding photos! It’s easy to seek out a wedding photographer, but it would be a good idea to ask around for reviews and prices, and some can get a bad reputation and can charge an arm and a leg for even the most basic packages. You’ll want to ensure you have a good rapport with the photographer and are able to communicate easily on details like location and time. Most photographers should be able to adjust their packages to your specific requests and make sure you get all the pictures you dream of having on your special day.

2. Family Photos

This is one area that you’ll benefit greatly by hiring a professional photographer. Chances are this will be one of the very few times the kids (and your husband) will co-operate and smile and be on their best behavior. Maybe it’s something about the formality of the event that brings out the best in them; but in any case, take advantage of those cute smiles and capture those happy memories as they happen. Most photographers will work with you in regard to themes and/or locations, but often they will have a preplanned photo op that will be beautiful, timeless and refreshing to the eye. While you may want to take the reigns on these details, place some trust in your photographer; they know what will make the pictures pop and stand out from the rest!

3. Newborns

If you have a newborn at home; first, congratulations! Newborn babies are a lot of work and can sometimes be incredibly stressful and hard to manage. Between the all-night feedings, the burping, spit-up, dirty diapers and everything in between, don’t forget to enjoy those precious moments because they are gone before you know it. I would highly recommend getting professional newborns pictures done of your precious little babe. It will be an interesting venture, and you may come in touch with more than you bargained for, but there is something about looking back on those pictures that will make your eyes tear up and your insides yearn until the very day you die. Any parent knows how fast children grow up, and even though we complain, we miss it as soon as it’s over. Take advantage and take pictures; you’ll lean on those memories for years and years to come.

4. Product Marketing

Let’s take a step back from the family setting for a second because photographers are needed in more than just that area. One of the best reasons to hire a professional photography company is to market the product you are trying to sell. I can tell you right now that the quality of pictures will be night and day next to the ones you can take on your phone. When trying to sell something, whether it’s food or services or product, visuals will make or break your client’s decision on whether to purchase or not. The photographer will have all the right equipment and will have all the tips and tricks to really make your photos sell your product!

5. Boudoir Sessions

That’s right ladies, I’m talking to you! I know you may shy away from this idea, but if you’ve ever wanted to feel empowered and at home and sexy in your body, this is the way to do it! Do some research and seek out a photographer that really knows what they’re doing, and I can guarantee you will walk away feeling the best you’ve ever felt. If the pictures are for you, or for someone special in your life; it’s an addictive feeling of empowerment, worth, and confidence!
