Photography is an art form that requires skill, creativity, and dedication. Whether they're capturing stunning landscapes, candid moments, or professional portraits, photographers invest a significant amount of time and effort into their craft. However, despite their passion and expertise, photographers often find themselves on the receiving end of comments that range from mildly annoying to downright offensive. If you want to avoid inadvertently rubbing a photographer the wrong way, here are ten things you should never say to them:

  1. "Your camera takes amazing pictures!" - While it's true that a good camera is essential for quality photography, attributing all credit to the equipment overlooks the photographer's skill and artistic vision.

  2. "Can you Photoshop that to make me look better?" - Asking a photographer to heavily edit or manipulate an image can undermine their integrity and artistic integrity. It's best to appreciate their work as it is.  However, we will remove blemishes, acne, red-eye, etc.

  3. "I could do what you do if I had a fancy camera." - Photography is about more than just owning expensive equipment. It requires a deep understanding of composition, lighting, and storytelling, which takes years to master.

  4. "Can you work for exposure?" - Expecting a photographer to work for free in exchange for "exposure" diminishes the value of their time and expertise. Like any professional, photographers deserve to be compensated for their work.

  5. "That's a nice photo. You must have a good editing software." - While post-processing can enhance images, a great photograph starts with a skilled photographer who knows how to capture the moment effectively.

  6. "Why is photography so expensive?" - Quality photography involves much more than just pressing a button. From equipment costs to time spent on editing and client communication, photographers have various expenses that justify their pricing.

  7. "Can you make me look thinner/younger/prettier?" - Photographers aim to capture their subjects authentically and respectfully. Asking for unrealistic alterations can be offensive and unrealistic.

  8. "You must love taking pictures of weddings! It's so easy, right?" - Wedding photography is a demanding and high-pressure field that requires extensive planning, coordination, and the ability to work under stress. It's far from easy.

  9. "Can you send me all the raw files?" - Raw files are unprocessed and often unfinished products of photography. Just as a chef wouldn't serve raw ingredients, a photographer's raw files are part of their creative process and not typically shared with clients.

  10. "Your job must be so fun! You get to play with cameras all day." - While photography can be rewarding and fulfilling, it's also hard work that involves long hours, physical strain, and dealing with various challenges.

In conclusion, photographers are artists who deserve respect for their craft and expertise. By avoiding these common faux pas, you can show appreciation for their work and build positive relationships with the photographers you encounter. So next time you admire a photograph, remember to acknowledge the person behind the lens and their dedication to capturing moments that inspire and evoke emotion.

How to Prepare for a Photography Mini Session https://www.tristonsphotography.com/blog/2024/3/how-to-prepare-for-a-photography-mini-session Picture-Perfect Prep: How to Prepare for a Photography Mini Session

Mini photography sessions offer a fantastic opportunity to capture memories, whether it's for family portraits, couples' shoots, or professional headshots. Despite their shorter duration, these sessions can yield stunning results when approached with proper preparation. If you're gearing up for a photography mini session, here's a comprehensive guide on how to prepare and make the most of your time in front of the lens:

1. Communicate with Your Photographer

Before your mini session, communicate openly with your photographer. Discuss your vision, preferences, and any specific shots you have in mind. Share details about the location, theme, and desired style to ensure everyone is on the same page. This collaboration sets the stage for a successful session tailored to your needs.

2. Plan Your Outfits Thoughtfully

Selecting the right outfits can elevate your photos and convey the desired mood or theme. Coordinate colors and styles that complement each other without being too matchy-matchy. Avoid busy patterns or logos that may distract from the main subject. Additionally, consider the location and season when choosing attire to ensure comfort and suitability.

3. Consider Props and Accessories

Props can add interest and personality to your photos, enhancing the overall story or theme. Whether it's a favorite book, a bouquet of flowers, or a beloved pet, carefully chosen props can elevate your images. Likewise, accessorize thoughtfully with jewelry, hats, scarves, or other items that reflect your style and personality.

4. Prepare Yourself Physically

Prioritize self-care in the days leading up to your mini session. Get plenty of rest, stay hydrated, and nourish your body with healthy foods. Avoid excessive sun exposure or major changes to your appearance, such as drastic haircuts or new skincare routines, right before the session. Feeling your best physically will radiate through in your photos.

5. Practice Posing and Expressions

Feeling comfortable and confident in front of the camera can make a significant difference in your photos. Spend some time practicing different poses and expressions in front of a mirror or with a friend. Experiment with angles, posture, and facial expressions to find what works best for you. Remember to relax, be natural, and trust your photographer's guidance during the session.

6. Pack Essentials for Touch-Ups

Bring along a small bag with essentials for touch-ups during the session. Include items like blotting papers, lip balm, hairbrush or comb, and any makeup for quick fixes. These simple touch-ups can help ensure you look polished and camera-ready throughout the session.

7. Arrive Early and Relaxed

Plan to arrive a few minutes early to your mini session to allow for any last-minute adjustments or unforeseen delays. Use this time to relax, take deep breaths, and mentally prepare for the session ahead. Arriving in a calm and relaxed state will set a positive tone for the rest of the shoot.

8. Trust the Process and Have Fun

Above all, trust your photographer's expertise and enjoy the experience. Let go of any self-consciousness or perfectionism and focus on being present in the moment. Embrace spontaneity, laughter, and genuine interactions, as these often result in the most authentic and memorable photos.

By following these tips and preparing thoughtfully, you can make the most of your photography mini session and create beautiful memories to cherish for years to come. So, get ready to strike a pose, flash your brightest smile, and let your personality shine through the lens!

The reason I do this https://www.tristonsphotography.com/blog/2024/3/the-reason-i-do-this I'm driven by a simple mission: to provide top-notch portrait and wedding photography services for budget-conscious couples and families.

Above all, my work is dedicated to honoring our Heavenly Father. It's important to us that every interaction reflects the light of Jesus. It's through His grace that I can share my talents with our community.

When my wife and I were planning our own wedding, we encountered the daunting reality of sky-high photography prices. With both of us juggling full-time jobs and studies, along with caring for her niece and nephew, our budget was tight. Despite our busy lives, we couldn't justify spending over $3000 on a photographer.

At the time, I was freelancing as a wedding photographer and working for a local school photographer. We ultimately asked a friend to shoot our wedding, confident in his abilities and eager to support him. Though he graciously offered to do it for free, we insisted on compensating him for his time.

However, when we received the photos, they fell short of our expectations. Despite my best efforts to edit them, my wife wasn't satisfied. I couldn't pinpoint exactly what went wrong—whether it was the lighting, the pressure, or other factors.

That experience ignited a determination within me to serve couples like us: those who desire quality photography without breaking the bank. I've made it my mission to price my services slightly below the market average, ensuring that everyone can afford beautiful, elegant photos for their special day. I understand that not everyone can shell out thousands for wedding photography, yet they still deserve stunning images to cherish for a lifetime.

I refuse to see my clients burdened with debt or financial strain just to capture their precious moments. That's why I'm committed to delivering professional, elegant photography at an affordable rate.

Capturing Memories: A Guide to Finding the Best High School Senior Photographer https://www.tristonsphotography.com/blog/2024/3/capturing-memories-a-guide-to-finding-the-best-high-school-senior-photographer As the final year of high school approaches, it's a time filled with excitement, anticipation, and a bit of nostalgia. Amidst all the milestones and celebrations, one aspect that seniors and their families often prioritize is capturing this significant moment in their lives through photography. Choosing the right photographer for senior portraits is crucial in ensuring that these memories are preserved beautifully for years to come. Here's a comprehensive guide on how to find the best high school senior photographer:

  1. Research and Explore Portfolios: Start by researching local photographers who specialize in senior portraits. Look at their portfolios to get a sense of their style, creativity, and the quality of their work. Pay attention to their ability to capture the personality and individuality of each senior.

  2. Consider Style and Vision: Every photographer has a unique style and approach to their work. Some may prefer traditional poses and settings, while others may specialize in more candid or artistic shots. Consider your personal style preferences and the vision you have for your senior portraits when choosing a photographer whose style aligns with yours.

  3. Read Reviews and Testimonials: Take the time to read reviews and testimonials from past clients. This will give you insights into the photographer's professionalism, reliability, and the overall experience they provide. Pay attention to feedback regarding communication, flexibility, and the ability to make clients feel comfortable during the photo shoot.

  4. Schedule Consultations: Once you've narrowed down your options, schedule consultations with your top choices. Use this opportunity to discuss your ideas, preferences, and any specific requests you may have. A good photographer will listen attentively to your vision and offer suggestions to bring it to life.

  5. Evaluate Experience and Expertise: Consider the photographer's experience and expertise in senior portrait photography. Ask about their background, training, and any awards or recognition they may have received. An experienced photographer will have the skills and knowledge to handle different lighting conditions, locations, and posing techniques effectively.

  6. Review Packages and Pricing: Compare the packages and pricing offered by different photographers. While cost is an important factor, prioritize value and quality over price alone. Look for photographers who offer comprehensive packages that include a variety of services such as photo editing, prints, and digital files.

  7. Check Availability and Scheduling: Confirm the photographer's availability for your desired date and time. Senior year can be busy with various activities and commitments, so it's essential to book your photo session well in advance to secure your preferred slot.

  8. Ask About Location Options: Discuss potential locations for the photo shoot with your photographer. Whether you prefer a scenic outdoor setting, an urban backdrop, or a studio environment, make sure the photographer is comfortable and experienced in shooting in your chosen location.

  9. Trust Your Instincts: Ultimately, trust your instincts when making the final decision. Choose a photographer who you feel comfortable with and who understands your vision for your senior portraits. Building a rapport with your photographer will contribute to a more relaxed and enjoyable photo shoot experience.

  10. Plan Ahead and Have Fun: Lastly, plan ahead and prepare for your photo shoot to ensure everything goes smoothly. Coordinate outfits, props, and any other elements you want to incorporate into your portraits. Most importantly, relax, have fun, and enjoy this special moment as you celebrate the culmination of your high school journey.

Choosing the best high school senior photographer requires careful consideration and research, but the investment is well worth it when you have stunning portraits to cherish for a lifetime. By following these tips and trusting your instincts, you'll be well on your way to finding the perfect photographer to capture this momentous chapter in your life.

What To Wear For Senior Pictures | 5 Tips https://www.tristonsphotography.com/blog/2024/3/what-to-wear-for-senior-pictures-5-tips What Should I Wear for Senior Pictures?

This is one of the most common questions we receive! If you’re wondering how to plan what to wear for senior pictures, you’re not alone. For our clients, the goal is always to have a fun and stress-free photo experience. In order to do this, and to get the most out of your time in front of the camera—preparation is key!

1. DETERMINE YOUR SESSION STYLE

The standard session style is classic and includes items like a cap and gown, confetti, and maybe your college sweatshirt or sports uniform. Another style option is editorial, which focuses on magazine-style items like flower bouquets, picnic blankets and baskets, sports equipment, or other items. Hint! Hint!  You can do both.

Please note that props are not a “must” by any means. Some of our clients love them and go all out. Some pick one or two items to bring. Others stick with just their outfits, and that’s great, too! The most important thing to bring is you!  The session is about you and your personality!  We will help bring that out.

2. Two Dresses

The first piece to add to your shoot wardrobe is a dress or two. Try picking one dress to wear on its own, and then one dress to wear under your cap and gown outfit (if you choose). The dress you wear with your gown should be shorter in length than the gown itself. Remember: there’s no such thing as “too dressed up” when it comes to your portrait session, so don’t be afraid to have some fun!   You don't have to go buy an expensive dress either.  You can just got to Goodwill or rent a dress.  You can even use this as an excuse to go shopping!

Girls

I recommend choosing long, flowing dresses or skirts because they’re flattering on all body types, look amazing on camera and bring extra movement and dimension to your photos. Floor length skirts and dresses will give us the best “twirl factor,” add more romance to your walking/running photos and look especially gorgeous with nature.

Guys

Button-up shirts and dress pants tend to look most impressive on camera because they really suit the male body.  I recommend bringing at least one long sleeve button-up shirt—either blue, black or white (solid colors). This is a classic look that never goes out of style. Whether or not you actually want to go full out in a suit is totally up to you, but I do recommend at least one "formal" outfit.

3.  Be You!

In addition to a fancier look, you’ll want to include something more “your style'“, like your favorite denim with a blouse or cool graphic tee. This is also a category where we see a lot of jumpsuits, rompers and two piece sets.

4.  Weather

If it’s colder outside, I suggest bringing a warm coat (the longer, the better!) to wear when we’re not shooting. In front of the camera, cute cold-weather accessories include beanies, scarves, boots and of course - cozy jackets and sweaters!

5. FOLLOW THE 3 T’S

When it comes to what to wear for senior pictures, let your guiding light be what I call the 3 T’s: include clothes that are trendy, timeless and true to you.

TRENDY

For one of your outfits, choose something trendy, such as a 2-piece pantsuit with a cropped top, a romper, or fun accessories like ankle socks and scrunchies. Even bringing along a pop of color like heart-shaped sunglasses can be fun. This is your chance to take risks and be bold with your outfit expression.

TIMELESS

This is the outfit where you would want to include neutral colors, like black, white, and shades of gray. If it’s warmer out, you can opt for a little black dress (ladies) or a black t-shirt (guys). If it’s cooler, I recommend pulling in pieces like scarves, hats, coats and suits. This “T” is more about color scheme and pattern of the fabric, which, in order to remain timeless must be made to accentuate you, not to stand out on its own.

TRUE TO YOU

Lastly, be sure to include an outfit that is unique to your style, hobbies, or personality. This can include school uniforms, sports uniforms, and or an item that represents where you're headed next. It’s so important to use the opportunity of being in front of a camera to capture not only your look, but your personality. This is another chance to take risks, but this time it’s more so to showcase your lifestyle, not just your personal style.

How to find the right wedding photographer https://www.tristonsphotography.com/blog/2024/2/how-to-find-the-right-wedding-photographer A wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions to make when planning your big day!  However, what should you look for in a photographer or better yet how do you find the right wedding photographer.  What should you look for in a wedding photographer? 

When to should you Book your Wedding Photographer

The sooner the better. I advise to book your wedding photographer as soon as you secure a wedding date and venue. Many photographers, myself included, take on a limited number of weddings each year.  As a rule of thumb, about a 8 months to a year in advance of your wedding date is a good timeline.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Wedding Photographer?

As with all wedding vendors, the cost of a wedding photographer will vary. The investment will be based on the photographer's experience, location, the wedding destination (which may or may not include travel costs) and different packages they may offer. Some Photographers may offer prints or digital images, pre-wedding engagement photos as well. To give you a ballpark number though, Bailey says for an experienced, professional photographer, couples can expect to spend at least $6,000. However, the Knot says that the average wedding photography cost in the U.S. is $2,500.  Though, we cater to budget friendly couples.  Our average wedding package is $1200.

What to Look for in a Wedding Photographer

Finding your dream wedding photographer becomes a whole lot easier when you know what to look for. According to the pros, there are two main factors that should help drive your decision: the photographer's style and how you get along with them.  I highly recommend getting a photographer that includes an engagement session.  This way you can get to know your photographer and their style.

You first want to make sure you connect with your photographer.  If you don't like them, you will not your images.  It is a true collaboration.  The photographer wants to get to know the couple as well.  What style do they like, are there poses that they're not comfortable with, etc.

Also, their style is important.  If they do just black and white, but you want color, that obvious a style you do not want.

Hire someone that puts you at ease.

How to Hire a Wedding Photographer

Now that you know what to look for in a wedding photographer, next comes actually hiring a wedding photographer. The exact process may look different depending on how the photographer operates, but generally, here are the steps you can expect to take.

Reach out via their website.

Once you know your wedding date, The first step is to reach out to the photographer via their contact information from their website, or message them via social media (Facebook, Instagram, etc) to see if your date is available.  If it is, then set up a time to talk with them.

Set up a time to chat.

This is essential to the hiring process. This is will give you the opportunity to feel them out and get your first impression of them.   Remember, ensuring you get along well with the photographer is one of the most important things to look for.

Share wedding details.

Make sure you tell them all of the details of the day.  Try to be transparent as possible.  The photographer is feeling you out as well, to ensure they're a good fit for you as well.  Go ahead and tell them what you expect in a photographer.  Again, this is important to help the photographer assess whether you'll be a good fit to work together.

Ask all your questions.

Finally, ask as many questions you have.  If you want to know how long it takes to get the gallery after the wedding day, ask away.  How many images will you receive, ask.  Do they have a second shooter, find out.

How Long?

This answer will vary depending on the type of wedding you're having and what you want.  On average, 8 hours is a normal amount of time.  However, if you're not comfortable with getting ready photos, take off a couple of hours.

Next step

So you've booked your wedding photographer, what's next?  The photographer will let you know what the next steps are.  For example, I let my couples know that 4-5 weeks before the ceremony, we will get together to discuss the final details including poses and timeline.  Also, share as many details through out the process as possible.  I love it when my clients share what details they want to include on their day at any time.

If you have any questions about this process, please let reach out.  We would love to talk.

A little bit about Triston https://www.tristonsphotography.com/blog/2024/2/a-little-bit-about-Triston
5I4A07095I4A0709 I am Triston.  I have lived in Kansas my entire life.  I am a husband of 15 years to a beautiful woman and father to 3 awesome kids!  My family and I moved to Andover shortly after we got married.  We have enjoyed the city of Andover a lot.  Especially our little neighborhood.  We have great neighbors!

IMG_0460aIMG_0460a 5I4A07205I4A0720
 

Not only do I love photography, but I also love the Kansas Jayhawks!  I went to school at KU my first two years after high school, then transferred and graduated from Wichita State University with a Bachelor of Business Administrations degree.  However, I would love to eventually go back to KU and get a masters.  I like the Shockers, but my heart is with my Jayhawks.  :)

When I went to college, I majored in Chemistry in the Pre-Med program, but soon realized that this was not the right path for me.  Not knowing what to do next, I spoke with my mentor.  He said that you know the art of photography, go learn the business aspect of it.  That is where most people fail.  So that is what I did.  So for the past 15.5 years, that is what I've been doing.  I have not looked back.  Now I don't do this full time yet, however, that is my goal one day.
