WHY IS HIRING A PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IS IMPORTANT?
I recently had a lovely discussion with a couple during pre-wedding shoot, they question was quite interesting: Why is hiring a professional photographer is important as opposed to having my friend or family member taking photos of our wedding day?
Their question has got me thinking so I decided to write this blog to explain the best I can the importance of hiring professional wedding photography services.I know that taking photographs seems to be very easy every other person is having DSLR and having a professional wedding photographer is an expensive! business. So why?
You only have one chance
You don’t get another chance
Life is no Nintendo game
Tying the knot is one of the life-changing decisions you’ll make in your lifetime and you want the ceremony to be as special and memorable. Couples looking to say “I do” surely want to have a one-of-a-kind and unforgettable wedding, I strongly believe “Wedding Photography” is for those couple who value photography and consider it’s a work of art.
Wedding photography is all about story telling through photographs.
I’ve seen couple opt for the money-saving alternatives of some wedding services to cut costs, they ask family member or a friend with DSLR to take the wedding photographs instead of hiring a professional to do the job.
You only have one chance to capture your wedding day, so make sure you trust and have confidence in your photographer.
When the big day is over, apart from memories all you have are photos, photos you shall treasure, photos you shall show to friends, family and grand children.
Just make sure these are positive memories and not a book that reminds you, wish you spent a bit more and hired a professional.
Professionals are bound by a legal contract, so they’re guaranteed to show up on your big day, no matter what the weather is. They can’t flake out on you like a friend (and they won’t) because they’re obligated by the contract to be there unless you say otherwise. In case of emergencies, they’re sure to have someone who’s also a professional to come as their replacement.
Professional Wedding Photographer have experienced or seen the worst and they prepared themselves & team accordingly. They have a backup camera, batteries, and memory cards, lighting with them so in case something happens with the gear they’re currently using, they won’t miss taking photos of any important part of your wedding. Knowing this can help you feel assured and excited at the same time because you know you have awesome photographs to look forward to.
If you’re looking to save as much money as you can for your big day, you can always spend less on other wedding services.
Don’t sacrifice your wedding photographs because at the end of your wedding day, the food and flowers will all be gone but your wedding photographs will remain. They’ll be your enduring proof of one of the most important events that took place in your life so you want to get them right the first time.
It’s a professional for them not a hobby. So you can be assured that they’ll put their best foot forward to give you the best results to make you satisfied and recommend them to your friends and family members.
Professionals have spent days & years in photographing weddings. They know how to sneak a shot of the bride and groom’s mothers looking at the couples with tears in their eyes. They know when the bride will through rice in air at the time of vidai, when bride will have that blissful smile on her face. They know when to take a shot of the groom looking at her with so much love and excitement. They know how to get the best shots even in tricky lighting. They’re capable of all these because they’ve got experience with weddings.
The Bottom Line
If you reduced the budget on your cocktail, going for carnation instead of lily, and cut a few corners of cakes, hardly anyone would know and they certainly won’t remember, after a week all these things will be gone. After your wedding you will have wedding photos telling a beautiful story holding lots of amazing memories, you will have this forever.
