Every once in awhile I run into the question - why should I pay for professional pictures? I mean, iPhones are really just as good these days, and I can use apps to enhance my images! While mobile technology has certainly come a long ways, there are still tried and true reason to invest your photo memories with a professional photographer who can both capture them with quality equipment and also proper posing, light and more. And after they're completed, the quality added in professional editing and printing is irreplaceable.
Your photographer will review the many shots taken on your session day and choose from them the very best selections for editing. Then, each image will be fine tuned and edited. Lighting effects can be implemented to offset a rainy day, backgrounds enhanced, and if there are two great pictures with a smile in one and not the other, they can be combined for one great shot where everyone is right on the mark. Small blemishes can be removed, teeth whitened and shadows softened.
Customized editing can create magic and whimsy - take this photo that was taken on a dimly lit day:
Your professional images are the result of time, talent and technical expertise. From session scheduling to final, professionally printed product, don't trust your precious memories to anyone other than a professional photographer!
