Advice On Choosing a Wedding, Event, Corporate or Portrait Photographer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a wedding, event, corporate or portrait photographer like you?

A. If the quality of your wedding, event, corporate and portrait photography is important; I am the professional you should be contacting! The number one thing to look for in their wedding photographer is personality. The photographer is the only individual who will be with you all day, and you want to feel comfortable with the person. So, when you are meeting them, you are checking them out for comfort. See how you feel around them. Can you picture them with your family and friends?

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. If I only knew to NOT choose on price alone; and to get to know my photographer before the event.
If the photographer is within your budget, give or take a little, pay attention to how it feels being with that person. If you feel celebrated and comfortable as though she were your friend, that is the person you want photographing for you once you know the person is trustworthy and her quality matches yours. Look for an established and reliable photographer whose work moves you, whose technical quality is tops. If you find a photographer who makes you happy, you never will regret your investment.

I had the pleasure of meeting Joan Heffler for an event where I was volunteering. First thing is first- her pictures and variety she shared was unbelievable! Part of what makes Joan unique is her ability to capture that special moment and with her creativity, makes all of those pictures come to life. Not only that, but she has a wonderful personality and talking with her was an absolute pleasure. It is nice to know that behind the lens, is a real person looking to make your day special. She was professional, friendly and courteous throughout and I will reccommend her to everyone I know looking for photography services 🙂
