Why invest in a Wedding Photographer?
There really are a number of good reasons why you should invest in decent wedding photography:
Good photography is more than just a fancy camera. I have spent literally a thousand hours training to be a photographer and another thousand or so photographing weddings. I know how to get the shot every time. I know how to compose the shot beautifully and then execute it with skill and precision. It isn’t the camera that does this – it is me.
I know how the day flows. It is the experience of being at 100s of different weddings that allows me to know just where to look and when. I know the time during the wedding when I can sneak a shot of your dad looking at you with a tear in his eye. I know to expect that moment just after the vicar asks for objections and know the church will break into nervous laughter and the bride will pull a priceless face. These are the things you can only get with experience.
I know how to work in tricky lighting. I am not flapped by bright sunlight or cave dark ceremony rooms. I can walk into any room and know where the best spot is to stand and where the best light will be.
I am experienced in dealing with the raw emotions of a wedding day. I know how to get mum to stop repeating the time every 10 minutes whilst the bride breaks out into a cold sweat because she might be 3 minutes late for the wedding. I know how to deal with the Usher who had a few too many before the ceremony even started. I can get a big group of people rounded up for photos – cheerfully, cooperatively and without yelling.
Remember, this will be your only wedding day so the pictures will have to last a lifetime. Find a photographer who has plenty of positive reviews and meet with him to discuss your big day and if you are not 100% sure book a pre-wedding/family/portrait shoot so you can see him in action but do make sure you have someone you can trust and rely upon on your big day.
