What does a professional photographer services include?

Whether you’ve got a special occasion coming up or just want to capture a moment in time, hiring a photographer means you can relax knowing it’s all taken care of. The inclusions and what happens during your photography session will depend on the type of services you need:

Special occasion photography

Professional photography is a non-negotiable for special occasions like weddings, parties, and events these days. Your photographer will discuss the ins and outs of your event with you ahead of time to make sure they’re in the right place at the right time. They’ll get set up before guests arrive and capture all the important moments, leaving you free to enjoy the day.

Portrait photography

Need to find a family photographer or baby photographer near you? Portraits can become treasured memories that show how people have changed and grown over time - and can make wonderful family gifts. You can even find an experienced animal photographer to capture your pets’ portraits or include them in the family photo. Your portrait photographer will ensure everyone is posed and clearly visible, then take a variety of shots.

Fashion and product photography

A specialist fashion photographer or product photographer near you can help with the right lighting, camera, and know-how. They’ll help style, arrange, and edit your images to help you stand out from the crowd, grow your following, and sell more products. 

Aerial or Drone photography

Aerial photography has revolutionised photography and video footage - these days you can get amazing group photos, property shots, and aerial views of just about anything. Whether you’re in real estate, construction, or tourism… or you’re planning your wedding, a pro drone photographer will use a high-quality drone camera to expertly capture the perfect aerial shot.

Photo editing and retouching 


Photo editing is where the magic happens, but it can be time consuming if you’re not a pro. A photo editor can help with retouching photos from your photoshoot, photoshop out an ex from your family photos, or turn an average photo into a masterpiece with the right lighting adjustments. They’ll use programs like photoshop and lightroom to make the best photos from your photoshoot even better.
