Default Loose leash walking, worth hiring a trainer?

My dog is just 2 yrs old, he walks good, bit not as good as I'd like. He doesn't pull hard, just always has to go faster than me just enough though to be annoying. If I put on a prong he is really pretty good, though I'm still correcting him often. I want him to be better because we both would enjoy walks much more. I also half wonder if I'm not being reasonable on how good he should walk.

I kind of want to hire a trainer, but I'm afraid to spend the money and get nothing out of it. I know it's hard to say without knowing the dog, me, or the trainer, but in general would you feel it's worth doing? I walk daily and it's frustrating both me and the dog right now.
