I'm beginning to notice a trend: Photographers don't use the uglies in their portfolio. No one has a crooked nose, an unfortunate birthmark and everyone is skinny.
It's kind of annoying, actually.
Though they are pleasant to look at, I kind of think the people in the photos are already beautiful and actually need very little help. I'd really like to see what someone does with that crooked nose or snaggle tooth. If they end up making that person look good, then I'm pretty sure they could help me too!
Another thing I'm noticing: no one publishes their prices. Why is this? If their pricing is too high, I won't call and therefore I will save us both time. And, if you'd like me to call about pricing instead of looking online, don't put a "pricing" tab on your website. That's just annoying.
Brian and I would like to have some engagement photos taken, hopefully in the next month so we can use them for save the date postcards. I've been searching the Internet for ideas of what kind of pictures I'd like, but I can imagine that telling a photographer what poses you'd like is rather demeaning. Still, there are a few cute ones that I would like and so I've compiled them. I can't show them here though, because they are mostly copyrighted but most involve water and downtown Boston.
Oh, and why does everything gotta be so expensive?!?!
