There is so much more to taking a picture than pressing the shutter button. Unfortunately many self proclaimed “professional” photographers do not realize this. It seems today we are in an age of technology that has made things almost too easy. Technology is taking its toll on the photography industry, particularly the wedding photography industry. One quick search and you can find a myriad of photographers offering their services at a variety of prices. At first glance it just seems as if the market is flood with pros. You can see a great range of prices, many offering very affordable wedding photography packages. But if you look a little closer, you will see the truth. There are many armature photographers charging professional prices to cover special events such as weddings, anniversaries, and quinceaneras. Many of the websites and profiles show samples of work that is far below the standards of most professionals.
The most basic techniques are nowhere to be found. Little to no skill is involved at all. It seems that some people have decided to buy a nice camera, pair it with a descent lens, set the camera to automatic, and “Boom” now you’re a professional photographer! With the developments in technology, it has become quite easy to get descent photographs with the newer DSLR cameras, but this does not make a person using it a professional. A professional needs to know how to use technique, theory, and skill in order to deliver great results. A professional knows how to capture great images in any lighting condition and any environment; it’s not merely luck or coincidence. My advice to any couple out there who is planning a wedding and who is currently seeking a professional photographer is to take your time and do your research. There are so many options out there for wedding photography, particularly in the San Diego and Orange County area.
Many of the options available are just fools good, too good to be true. Seek experienced professional wedding photographers. Remember that in most cases, you get what you pay for. So if the price is too good to be true, it most likely is. MUWE offers affordable wedding photography packages in the San diego, Orange County, and Los angeles area.
