Whether you’re holding a big family get-together, a wedding or a corporate event, having a visual record of the day is the perfect way to ensure it’s never forgotten. One way to achieve that is to hire a professional photographer – and this provides a number of benefits that are reflected powerfully in the quality of the final images.

  1. Well-Composed Photographs

Documentary photography is all about expressing the uniqueness of an individual moment, and our belief is that the best photographs feature subjects in a natural, relaxed pose. But that doesn’t have to mean sacrificing clear, well-composed images.

A professional photographer who’s experienced in the art of documentary-style photography can take images that combine an impromptu naturalism and a strong composition. It’s an ability that’s part instinctive, and part learned through years spent behind the lens.

  1. Professional-Grade Cameras

A skilled photographer can take quality images using even a basic camera, but there’s no question that high-quality equipment makes the process easier and more reliable.

We work with Canon cameras and have accessories such as lenses available for any circumstances that require them. The result is crisp, clear, high-resolution images that can safely be enlarged or digitally enhanced – without suffering the loss of quality that often affects photos taken with cheaper cameras or camera phones.

  1. Photo-Editing Services

Every photographer has experienced the frustration of taking a genuinely beautiful shot – only to find that it’s spoilt by a single issue… Maybe the lighting is too bright, leading to an over-exposed image, maybe the brilliance of the original colours hasn’t come through, or maybe there’s something at the edge of the picture that distracts the eye.

Whatever the issue, professional photo-editing services offer a range of ways to address defects or weaknesses in otherwise effective images. At Alejandre Maggio Photography, our photo editor, Carmen, uses Photoshop to enhance and improve images, or apply a range of stunning visual effects.

  1. The Freedom to Enjoy the Event!

Perhaps the best reason to hire a professional photographer is to ensure you can focus on the event itself! Occasions like weddings and Christenings are truly once-in-a-lifetime events – and you, as well as all of your guests, should be able to relax and enjoy the big day.

Hiring a professional photographer not only frees you up from the responsibility of taking photos yourself, but it also means that you can relax, safe in the knowledge that you’ll always have a beautiful visual memento of the occasion.
