Photography has seen numerous changes and those changes will proceed. With the advent of digital, there have been numerous types of memory cards and file formats; which have fallen by the wayside. Image recording and storage media have run the scale from floppy disks to hard drives, CD's, USB drives, and the "cloud". Now, floppy disks make fantastic beverage coasters, hard drives and flash drives fail, clouds evaporate, literally and figuratively. Also, large quantities of today's computers do not have a CD/DVD drive anymore. In a previous article of ours, we shared ways on how to preserve photos digitally. This article shares the importance of printing your unforgettable memories. People in today's world prefer a digital file of a photo so they can share it with family and friends by email, on social media, etc. But how long will it continue?
Once a photo is uploaded to a website, it is compressed into a low-resolution file. This action cannot be reversed, and this means a large, high-quality print can never be made from an image taken from a website. Clients can produce prints of their images at local convenience stores, but those facilities do not offer the same quality as going through a photo lab. Photos from professional labs are designed not to fade, they are treated for color, and composition and light are printed on high-quality, premium paper. As your photographer, it is our job to ensure that our clients gain the utmost out of their purchases and offering prints are the best way to do so. As seen in the picture above, we have other merchandise such as mugs, refrigerator magnets, canvases, frames, etc. available for purchase.

People believe hiring a professional would be a no-brainer, but this is not always accurate. Most couples searching for a photographer want to spend as little as possible and so they try to find "alternative" wedding services and few of these "alternatives" typically end up involving having a friend, a friend of a friend or family member perform the service instead of hiring a professional. If you are on a budget (and who isn't), when it comes time to find a wedding photographer, you may consider your friend or relative. Although, they have offered their services many times and always at a reduced rate, consider a professional. When it involves your most important moments and memories, saving money in lieu of professional photography just it not worth it. We, at Grand Lens Photography, believe not hiring a professional is a recipe for disaster. Here are our top 3 reasons to hire a professional photographer and not a friend.
