A wedding day is arguably one of the most, if not the most, important day of one’s life. A wedding is a big event that takes months to play for. Everything has to be perfect because so many friends and family members will be attending the event. A wedding day should create so many memories to be cherished for life. Years after a wedding, if you ever need a laugh, just bring up the wedding ceremony recordings.
For a wedding, it is usually very important that the married couple leaves the night with as many great pictures as possible. Before you ask, yes it is better to hire a professional photographer. Some couples prefer to keep their wedding budgets as low as possible, but skipping out on paying a quality photographer may lead to regret later on in life.
In order to save money, some couples may decide to have a trusted friend or family member take the photographs. One of them is bound to have a smartphone with a great camera, so it is all good, right? Let’s take a look at why hiring wedding photography professionals are beneficial:
1) The individual (or group if choosing to hire more people) will be assigned specifically to you the whole night.
There is no question of loyalty when hiring a professional photographer. Their job is to specifically follow you and your bride/groom around the whole night snapping pictures on command. If they do not show up, they don’t get paid, and their business gets a bad reputation. So they have no reason not to show up. There are plenty of times where a family member or friend assigned to takes pictures does not show up, gets distracted, or forgets their camera gear.
2) Professionals have more experience taking wedding photos.
Nothing is more irritating that to look back at wedding photos and see a finger covering up part of the photo or hearing a recorded video that didn’t pick up any audio. Professionals understand all the best angles for a picture, lighting techniques, and can usually offer advice on how to pose.
3) Married couples should be enjoying the moment not worrying about pictures.
The more time a married couple spends worrying about pictures, the less time they can spend enjoying the company of others.
