Presenting images with personality

Is it important to see keepsake albums when choosing a photographer?

Yes! As many images as possible and as many venues photographed as possible are critical in choosing a photographer for your wedding or bar or bat mitzvah. This will give you a great idea how expert the photographer is in different lighting conditions. In fact, how good the images are in various lighting situations separates out the professional from the less experienced amateur.  Don’t you test drive all the cars you may consider purchasing?

Same with photographers. View as many images as possible whether online, in slideshows, in proof albums or keepsake albums. Not only do you get a great idea of the professionalism of the photographer, but you also get great ideas for poses if you choose to want to duplicate some that you have seen and really enjoy.

Your photographer and you can discuss the types of photos you may want in your album at that time and it is a great way to get to know each other better which will enhance your special day!

Joan photographed my family of 6 as a special birthday gift from my husband. Which to some people might be a normal occurrence but to some of my family, photographs are a thing to avoid at all costs. Joan made the entire process painless and fun. She was able to charm and relax my granddaughter (among others) in about 1 minute. Joan is a lot of fun and took the time to think about locations and poses that best suited our personalities. Because of that we have some very natural portraits (especially the one in the tree) that I will treasure forever. Thanks so much Joanie, Joanie!!
