These days, photography is practiced by everyone with a half decent smartphone, but it's mastered by few. When it comes down to those once-in-a-lifetime moments when you have got one shot at getting it right a proven professional photographer is the person you want behind the camera.


Professional photographers know how to achieve great results every time regardless of the conditions, they get those conditions to work for them. You get a strong collection of photographs that tell your personal story, not a few lucky snapshots, and you will work with someone who knows how to produce a quality image under any circumstances.

Technical Skills.

Professional photographers are more than picture takers. They are students of art, lighting, posing, fashion and even interior design. They combine these elements to create images that fit your personal style and character that become works of art you will treasure for years.

Unique Artistry.

Professional photographers have the skills to create unique, customized works of art and not average photographs. They have an artistic vision and as a result your story captured as a collection of art.Professionalism. When you hire a professional photographer, you know you're getting someone who is willing to go above and beyond to produce the best possible photographs. They are business owners who thrive on customer service and satisfaction, and they continuously aim to produce products that exceed yours expectations. These photographs are keepsakes that your stories and treasure forever.Just about anyone can take a good picture every now and then. But when life's biggest moments are unfolding and there's just one chance to capture that perfect memory, don't risk it entrust your photography needs to a Professional Photographer and see the difference for yourself.

Copyright 101 -- who owns the images?One of the most confusing aspects of hiring a photographer can be working out who owns the copyright to the photographs. To be clear, unless you have a written and signed agreement between the photographer and yourself, the photographer will retain the copyright of the photographs. Why? The Copyright, Designs and Patents Act of 1988 clearly states that the ownership of an image is retained by the person who created it. Therefore, you do not own the images. You are in fact licensing the images.Remember that a photographer’s job isn’t just pressing the shutter button. They’re using a combination of lighting, posing and post-processing skills that have been gained through years of study to make your vision a reality. You’re hiring a photographer for their expertise not their ability to push a button.
