3 Tips for Picking the Ideal Photographer for Your Senior Shoot

You may know exactly what you want for your senior photoshoot, but you can’t achieve much without the right photographer. Whether you have just started your search or have been searching for a while, these tips will help. 

Consider the photographer’s style. 

By now, you probably have a good idea of what you want your senior photos to look like. What you need to make sure of is that a photographer’s overall style matches your preferences. Do you want images that are slightly moody and artistic, or would you prefer bright and playful photos? Browse through your photographer’s portfolio to find out more about their style.  Here’s a link to mine:

It’s also important to look for consistency. Does your photographer have a consistent style, or does it differ across their website and social media profiles?

Review their experience. 

Your photographer might be able to work a camera, but this doesn’t mean they should be taking your senior photos. When reviewing potential photographers, look at whether they have specific experience with senior photoshoots.

It’s also essential to read through any customer testimonials to get a better idea of what you can expect when working with a particular photographer. Any mentions of industry awards are also a good sign.

Set a budget and shop accordingly. 

Before you even start shopping around for a senior photographer, decide on a budget. This way, you can easily rule out potential photographers before you go to the trouble of reviewing their portfolios. 

Don’t forget to look at what’s included with each photography package before you make a final decision. You might find that some photographers offer more value for money. 

And lastly, once you find a senior photographer you’re happy with, don’t wait to book them. It’s also best to have a backup choice should your first photographer not be available.
