Don’t be shy when it comes to your vision! Yes, you hire a photographer because you like their work and style. But sometimes it’s good to share your thoughts with your photographer. Even if you share shots that the photographer has taken themselves, it’s good for the photographer to know what look you’re aiming for. Share Pinterest pages, magazine photos, and Google searches. Sometimes something as small as requesting a birthday shoot with simple balloons turns into something more. Though the best photographers will already be picking your brain and researching your requests, it’s best to come to the table with a few ideas as well.
