Big Studios Part 1: “I talked to a large photography studio that does weddings and they warned me against using an independent photographer.”
Big studios are playing up their assets to cover up their short fallings. They can often use over a dozen different photographers throughout the course of the year. Most of their photographers have limited investment in the longevity of the studio and view it as just working for some one else till they can open their own studio. Also, photos you may see on their companies web site often aren’t taken by the same photographer you’re getting. Or worse, the images in the studio’s portfolio are by some one who doesn’t even work there anymore. Read the next questions to see some more scare tactics a large studio might use. Your photographer should be the one you talk to from start to finish, not just some one you meet once and then follows notes taken from the sales person who booked the wedding.
