Researching photographers for your wedding day can be overwhelming. Between the sheer number of available photographers and photographic styles, it’s enough to make your head spin. Sometimes, you’ll spend days or weeks finding your favorite photographer only to find out that they are a little more expensive than you were anticipating. Sure, there are plenty of affordable photographers out there who can photograph your wedding, but is it worth it to save some cash? Here are a few reasons why I think it’s worth it to splurge on your dream photographer.
You don’t want to just rely on a family member to take your photos on your wedding day. Professional wedding photographers are not only experts in capturing beautiful photos but also in making you feel comfortable in your photos. We have worked with so many clients and have experienced the many emotions you’ll have on your big day. You want somewhere there with you who is skilled in handling it and capturing the beautiful process.
Most of us wedding photographers have been in the business for a while and worked with countless couples. That means we have seen some of the vendor experiences and some of the worst. As a DC Wedding Photographer, I can get you recommendations for the perfect vendor you are looking for to complement your wedding day.
I only work with a limited number of couples a year, so you can expect a tailored experience rather than someone just showing up, taking photos, and leaving. I take the time to truly get to know my wedding couples during our experience together. The more we can connect, the more comfortable you will feel in your photos and the better they will turn out!
Professional photographers know how to photograph all of the wedding details accurately and how to elevate them visually. It’s not as simple as just hanging your dress on your custom hanger or placing your ring on a fancy pillow. We have an eye for the details of what will photograph well and what tiny details you will want to remember forever.
Photographers are with you from getting ready to the end of the night, so it’s important to hire someone who knows how to make you feel comfortable amidst the wedding day whirlwind. If you clash with your photographer, it will greatly affect your overall feel of the day.
Once the wedding day is over, photos are the only thing left. I want to make sure you that your wedding day photos are ones that you are proud of and look back on for generations to come. If you are ready to take that next step and create classic wedding photos with your dream wedding photographer, let’s talk!
