Before hiring a professional photographer, ask these questions:
? What type of photo paper do you use, and how long does it last?
Photographic papers fade at different rates. Some surpass others in quality. Once you know what materials the photographer uses, ask a professional photo store for details about the best types of paper. Special photographs should be printed using the processes recommended in Henry Wilhelm and Carol Brower's The Permanence and Care of Color Photographs.
