Are High School Senior portraits coming up? Has it been a while since you had your family portrait taken in the Greeley or Northern Colorado area? Or is it time that portraits were taken of your other family members – kids, pets…? Do you have a special event coming up? You might want to hire one of the more seasoned Greeley photographers like Carol Dunnigan Photography.
When considering which portrait photographer to go with – because there are so many to choose from – consider the following:
What is the photographer like?
You may not just be selecting a photographer for one portrait session. Maybe you’d like to trust and use the same photographer, year after year, or for different occasions that come up in the Greeley area.
Your Greeley photographers can make or break how your session and your whole experience turns out. Do they have a fun, energetic, positive attitude? Do they try for the memorable shots? Or do they just want to put their hour in with you for the pay check?
What price can I expect to pay?
Price is always important, but don’t make it be your deciding factor when choosing your portrait photographer in the Greeley/Northern Colorado area. Many times people are disappointed when they went with ‘the less expensive’ photographer. It was hurried and impersonal. Then they had to pay for extra people to be in the portrait, and had to pay extra for clothing and location changes. When it came time to ordering the product, they were left on their own to decide from a huge amount of images. Not knowing or understanding the products and how they could work for you – not knowing how they could be displayed amazingly in your home or office – is a big disservice that many portrait photographers do to their clients. Many photographers will offer unframed prints that end up in boxes, under the bed, or in a drawer. Many will offer images on a CD, only to have the client use an inferior printing company that doesn’t use museum quality archival paper OR they don’t get them printed at all and therefore are unable to enjoy their images to the full extent. Media becomes corrupt or even outdated.
Be careful. Many portrait photographers in the Greeley and surrounding Northern Colorado suburbs offer deep down discounted prices, but are they providing you with over and above customer service?
How much time will my photographer give me?
When choosing a photographer in the Greeley and Northern Colorado area, will they hurry you along through the session? Have a set time limit?
When you pay for a professional photography session with one of the Greeley photographers, capturing the right memories in images that you love should be the goal. You’ll want a photographer who is thoughtful, creative, energetic, but who especially is a good listener and can understand your goals for your portraits. There are a number of photographers in Greeley and Northern Colorado, but do they possess the key attributes necessary to partner with you in creating lasting memories?
What are your photographers credentials?

Most photographers will be very proud of their work and will display it prominently either online or in a portfolio that you can view in their studio.
