Alright, you’re ready to commit and hire a photographer; you want new portraits – wonderful. You open up a browser tab and search for Atlanta Portrait Photographer and, “Holy shitake mushrooms, where do I start?!” Yeah, there are A LOT of us. So how do you sift through the noise?
Hiring the right photographer for you is difficult because you’re placing your trust in us. You want your images to be amazing and have a great experience at the same time. You want a photographer who understands your fears, will keep an eye out for that cowlick that won’t behave, and will let you relax and have such a good time that taking pictures is fun! It’s also essential that the deliverables and process to get them are what you want and more.
So. Much. Pressure.
Well, hopefully, I can help you narrow down the field. Below are a series of questions that I would ask every potential photographer I want to hire to make sure they’re the best one for me.

Hopefully, a few of these were helpful and made you go, “huh, never even considered that.” I want my clients to be fully informed, and if they aren’t my client – then fully informed to make sound decisions. Regardless of who you hire to be your photographer – me or someone else, I want everyone to get the images they want and have a great experience as well.
If you think I missed something or have further questions, then shoot me an email and let’s talk about it!
