21st birthday is one of the most memorable party you will have and since you turn 21 only once, you would want to make sure that you capture those moments and have them be saved in the form of photographs, videos and through other mediums. However, having a good photography for your 21st birthday is something a lot of people want to do, if you are thinking on the similar lines just make sure to do everything according to the research you have done. Do not take any step without researching.
Even the dress that you plan on wearing on your 21st birthday is something you need to pick according to the time of the day of your event and the venue. So be very mindful while picking out your 21st birthday dress. With that being said, here are a few common mistakes people make while hiring birthday photographers, check them out below and try not to repeat them.
Not Checking The Portfolio
This should be the most basic and the first part of your preliminary research is to check the portfolio of the photographer you are interested in. A lot of photography businesses have websites or social media pages that you can check out to determine if their photography skills are up to par. However, if you skip out on this step you will probably not know if they are good enough with their photography or not until it is too late. And it isn’t every day that you turn 21, this moment will not come back again, so make sure to invest some time in researching the photographer you want to hire for your event.
Paying in Advance
Another mistake a lot of people make while hiring photographer is that they pay in advance instead of paying after their services have been completed. So always make sure that once you have the photographs with you, only then should you pay them.
