So, why do I want to hire a professional to shoot my wedding?
Tying the knot is one of the most exciting and life-changing decisions you’ll make in your lifetime. The number one trap that you should not fall into: Hiring your “budding photographer friend with a nice camera” to take your wedding photos. It is a recipe for disaster and it’s something that you do not want to learn the hard way. Here are five compellingly honest reasons to hire a professional wedding photographer as opposed to the owner of the “nice”camera friend or family member.
We are professionals that are bound by a legal contract, so we are a sure thing and are guaranteed to show up on your big day. We won't flake out on you like someone whose reputation does not depend on reliability. We take our job very seriously and take pride in the images we capture and the follow through we provide when we first meet you through your wedding and usually well beyond that.
We are experienced pros and have spent thousands of hours photographing weddings. We totally know how to sneak a shot of the bride and groom’s mothers looking at the couples with tears in their eyes. We know when the bride will have that blissful smile on her face.. We know when to take the shot of the groom looking at her with so much love an overflowing excitement. We know how to get the best shots in tricky lighting. We even bring the lighting with us! We are ultra capable of all of this because we have more than enough experience (20 plus years) in wedding photography—something that your “budding photographer” friend obviously does not have.
