Alright. Let’s be real. Your wedding only happens once. ONCE. Uncle Tom isn’t going to know what moments to capture with his new camera he got for Christmas. I’m going to give you a list of reasons as to why you should hire a wedding photographer and why they are so important to your day.
They are not just documenting your day, they are telling YOUR story.
Wedding photographers live for storytelling. It’s important to them that your story is told because everyone is so unique. No two couple are the same and we as photographers know that. We have done multiple weddings and they are all so different. There is so much time and money that we as photographers spend to continue to learn how to best serve you. Whether that’s purchasing more cameras, lens’s or investing in photography courses to know how we can do better for you. If you think photographers just click a button, your wrong. There is directing of people, use of angles and light all to tell your story.
You can relive the moments after your wedding
An amazing photographer will capture the moments you didn’t get to see like your mom and dad dancing so gracefully or your brother breakin’ it down on the dance floor. They also get to capture the moments that you did see like seeing your hubby cry when he first saw you in your wedding gown or taking the first bites out of the beautiful cake. Photos LAST. The cake gets eaten, the dances end, the music stops, floral’s die, people leave, but the photos will always be there.
Your wedding day happens only once. Yes you may have vowel renewals in the future (which you would want a photographer for that as well), but its nothing like the first time. The first look, the first kiss as husband and wife, the first dance, the first toast, and other first’s happen once. Wedding photographers have expertise on making you feel at ease on your day but also capture your story. Wedding Photographers want your day to be as amazing as you would want it to be. They are there to help you. They will grab a glass of champagne, fix your fly-away’s in your hair and touch up whenever you need.
You invest in them and they take it seriously. After your wedding, you’ll be able to relive the moments and see the ones you missed. It’s something just truly special to have them with you forever. You can create albums and prints to hang around the house and for your family. These photos get passed down to generations and it’s so amazing.
