Sticky Mud and Belly Laughs

A Perfect Family Photo With Bidvine

Being a Mom sees me behind the camera a lot. Always capturing special moments with the kiddies, as you do. But with me being the one always behind the camera, we don’t get many family shots together.  Ok, I guess I could set my camera to timer, but I want to get the very best out of each snap. So for that I am going to need to hire a Photographer.

It didn’t take me long to discover Bidvine. Bidvine is an online site where you can hire local trusted services from professionals. Whether you are revamping your home and need a decorator to help out or perhaps you have just bought a home that needs re-wiring and need the expertise of an electrician.

Find Local Services With Ease



First I was prompted to open an account, which is straight forward.


Once I had registered, I went ahead with the quote process. I was prompted to fill out the form with the requested service that I required, so I chose a Portrait Photographer. It then went on to ask what kind of style I would like, what my budget was and whether or not I wanted to travel to them or they come to our home.

Bidvine photographer services

I chose for the Photographer to come out to us. We are surrounded by countryside, so we can get some lovely in the moment shots of the kids outside and then perhaps some more traditional portraits, indoors.


I like the convenience of having them stored online.


It took about 5 minutes maximum, from filling out the quote form, up to submitting it.  I could not believe that in just over a couple of hours, I started to receive quotes via text message.

I have received 5 quotes up to yet, prices ranging from £65 – £200.  There are a couple of really talented photographers there and I will be getting in touch with them shortly.

Overall I am really impressed with the service that Bidvine provides. Finding local services couldn’t be more simple.
