It would help if you were specific when reaching out on social media; after all, we are all connected to 100s of people online, and we want to recommend our friends to help them be successful. However, you don’t need 100’s of recommendations for the wrong type of photographer that can not handle your specific needs. While it’s true that many photographers are capable of shooting a wide variety of styles, we find hiring a specialty photographer can significantly enhance the overall outcome of your photoshoot.
Once you have the names of 2 or 3 photographers that you think would be an excellent fit for your project, reach out to them via email and ask to set up a meeting or interview. You are looking for the photographer that you are the most comfortable with and that you think has the right portfolio for your project.
Following these simple steps will ensure you hire the right photographer the first time!
