Weddings are expensive. There, I said it! I work in the field of weddings and I totally get that they’re expensive. There’s a lot of things you’re going to be paying for: a gorgeous wedding gown, a beautiful venue, your caterer, alcohol, a cake… often it feels like there’s SO much you have to pay for. It adds up quickly. Brides and grooms usually look for things they can DIY or do a little bit less of to lighten the budget and I don’t blame them one bit!! But I want to take a minute to talk about WHY you should invest in an amazing wedding photographer.
Weddings Go By Fast
The number one comment brides and grooms will make after their wedding day is that it went by so fast – sometimes too fast. Photography will help slow down that time for you. When your photos are delivered, you’ll have a chance to relive every moment of your wedding day – and probably enjoy a few moments you missed too! Wedding photographers also help you build your timeline so it fits how you want your day to flow, which will help give you more pockets of time to just enjoy your wedding day. Investing in a professional wedding photographer will ensure that your images truly tell your wedding day’s story forever.
Time + Effort
Weddings take a lot of planning! A professional wedding photographer will make sure all of the details you chose so carefully – from the napkin design to your beautiful bouquet – will be documented. All of those choices mattered to you and taking the time to make sure they’re captured forever is something a professional will do correctly. Detail shots take time and focus, the right lighting, and a great eye. Make sure you take a look at your photographer’s portfolio and check out their detail shots when you choose to invest!
Working with a Professional
Okay, back to the original post – weddings are expensive and cost a lot of money! A professional photographer won’t be cheap – but they will TOTALLY be worth it! A professional photographer has spent time learning how to capture your day in a beautiful, consistent way. A great photographer knows how to pose the bride, groom, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and family members to make sure nothing gets missed. And finally, a professional will be able to handle anything that comes up – poor lighting, shifting timelines, last minute adjustments in the day.
When you invest in a professional photographer for your wedding day, you’re choosing a great place to put some of your money in your wedding budget. A professional will make sure your wedding day is going to be remembered forever and give you beautiful images to look back at for years!
