Finding a good photographer to work with is made easier with review website, but many photographers aren’t on review websites, so how do you know how to find someone that’ll be easy to work with?

The easiest way to find a good photographer is to analyze their work. Most photographers should have a portfolio or Instagram portfolio for you to scroll through their recent and best photo shoots. Since every photographer has a unique style, this method should help you understand the type of work you’ll receive.

Some photographers own their own studio but most of the time you’ll need to pay extra to book a private studio location. Studio rentals usually range between $30 to $100 per hour with some premium locations costing more. Peerspace is a great option for booking a studio but there are many other studio booking websites to choose from. If booking through MashaLou.com, we can help you find a studio and arrange the booking for a small fee + hourly rate.
