As I love taking photographs people often comment that we must have lots of great family photos of myself, Dave and the kids. In truth, we don’t. I even gave up taking part in the Me and Mine project earlier this year as I found it hard to take just one family portrait a month. I enjoy taking natural photos of the kids on our days out, but I don’t like the hassle of getting all the kids together, setting up the tripod and camera settings and trying to take the perfect family photograph. Luckily, I love the individual and group candid shots and selfies that we’ve taken of the kids but if we’re ever to have “the perfect family photo” then I think we’ll have to call in the professionals and that’s were Bidvine come in handy.
Bidvine is the easiest way to find and hire local professionals to help accomplish projects. I was asked to review their service and decided to see how easy it would be to look for local family portrait photographers in my area.
I was asked a services of questions to help find the photographer best suited to my needs, such as how many people would be in the shoot, where the photos would be taken (I opted for outdoors as studio photography is not my style), style of image (natural outdoors), themes, format of final images, budget, if the service pro needs to travel to me and when this service is needed.
I was lastly asked how I would like to receive quotes and opted for email only.
Bidvine were straight onto it!

They warned me that there are not many photographers on Bidvine in my area and told me to expect quotes in a few days time.
There are not a lot of Family Portrait Photographers on Bidvine in your area that meet your needs. Expect a limited response.
I was pleasantly surprise when I checked my emails that evening to find five competitive quotes from professional photographers.
Another handy function is that these quotes can easily be found on my Bidvine dashboard in my Quote List.
I will definitely be using this service to find local professionals in my area again. I will also be encouraging professionals to sign up and offer their services on Bidvine as it’s a great way to find more work too.
A professional family photograph would be great for the Christmas cards this year! Have you had professional family photographs taken in the past, where did you find your photographer?
