As a Mum, I love taking photographs, it is so important to me that we capture our special moments on film to look back on in years to come. The only problem with always being the photographer is that in years from now, when my children look back on their childhood photographs, there will be a real shortage of photographs with me actually in them! For that reason it is important that every so often, even just once or twice a year, we hire a professional photographer who can take photos of the six of us either in our home or an outdoor space local to us.
Finding a photographer can be difficult, particularly one who is willing to travel to our home, and with four children I rarely have a moment to breathe, let alone spend a few hours researching local photographers and ringing round for a price list. That’s why I was pleased to discover Bidvine, a website who describes themselves as,
“Bidvine is the easiest way to find and hire local professionals to help accomplish your projects. Learn something new, redecorate your home, feel better, feel fitter, throw a great party – and more.”
Bidvine was so easy to use and is as simple as typing in the service required and your home postcode. I searched for Manchester Photographers and chose “Portrait photographers” from a list of options. I then followed the instructions to select the style of photos we required, whether I wanted the photographer to visit our home, a studio, an outdoor space or other, and a rough estimate of our budget. After logging in via Facebook to obtain my quotes, I simply sat back and awaited feedback in my in-box. Simple!!
By that same evening I had received three emails from photographers in my area offering their services, giving me quotes (ranging from £75 to £250) and links to their websites. It really was that easy!
I wouldn’t hesitate to use Bidvine again in the future, anything that makes life easier is a real hit with us. And hopefully, once we decide on which photographer to go with, we will get some lovely photos of the six of us!
