With fast-paced wedding photography, it's essential to have camera bodies you can adjust to meet the needs of the moment. "While it was quite a learning curve to feel as comfortable with a Canon digital body as I did with Nikon film bodies, it was and is the best decision for me and my work. I love the ability to make changes quickly and to nail those must-have photos."
GraphiStudio albums from Italy have also made a difference in her business. They not only offer stunning wedding books with excellent design—they also have great parent albums in various sizes, as well as trendy pocket-size books that are popular and affordable. "Companies like Pictage and GraphiStudio make it better not only for the clients, but for my bottom line as well."
"Using ACDSee Pro and Adobe Lightroom for editing and managing large numbers of images is a big help. On a recent Saturday, we shot 2,500 frames with three different camera bodies. Releasing all those files to the bride in sequence has become a lot easier with ACDSee Pro."
By "we," Steinbacher is referring to a second shooter and the assistants she works with to cover as many angles as possible during a wedding. She handles all post-production editing using another favorite product, Adobe Photoshop. Keeping the files in her hands enhances the connection and brings her closer to what clients are looking for.
"Photography is so personal, and I want the experience to be effortless, magical, and joyful. The happier my clients are, the more they relax into their day. The more fun they have, the better my photos."
No wonder the compliments keep on coming.
