There’s an old saying that says usually you can only have two choices while sacrificing the third choice. This is what that looks like in the world of senior photography:
Good + Fast = Not Cheap – if you want gorgeous images and you’re in a rush, you may have to pay for the fast service and turnaround time. By rushing your editing time you will be able to get your images back in the time you need. This is also why you don’t want to wait until Sept. or Oct. of your senior year to book your senior session.
Cheap + Fast = Not Good – usually this combo means the photographer doesn’t have a wait list of clients and isn’t booked by a lot of people (and that’s not necessarily a good thing). It also means that their image process probably isn’t well established, so their ability to provide a cohesive gallery may be lacking.
