You've picked the groom, the date, the venue, and most important, The Dress! Now its time to choose your wedding photographer and to pick packages. Occasionally, I will have a bride who doesn't want to shoot bridals for various reasons. The ones I hear most often are: "I don't want to have to dress up twice and go through all the hassle" "shooting bridals involves extra expense and I'm on a budget" "I'm not comfortable having my portrait taken" and finally "We'll have plenty of time to do that at the wedding". All of these seem like good reasons right? Well I would like to share a few reasons why I believe it is so important to have a bridal shoot before your wedding day.
Is your wedding fixed? Are you busy in all wedding preparations and still looking for wedding photographers?
"I don't want to have to dress up twice and go through all the hassle"
Why not! You've probably spent more money on this beautiful dress than you ever will spend on any other item of clothing you will purchase again. After your wedding, chances are you will never put it on again. If your dress makes you feel beautiful, feminine and just absolutely wonderful (as it should) why not enjoy that as many times as you can! Is it a hassle.. well that depends on how you look at it. For a bridal shoot you will most likely be getting your hair and nails done. What a better way to relax! Look at it as pampering yourself. You have probably been very busy planning your wedding. Take a minute and relax! Not to mention one of the things that brides change most often after a bridal shoot is their hairstyle. You might now like the way it looks, it may not be comfortable or it may be to difficult to keep up during the several hours that you will be wearing it not only for your ceremony but for pictures and dancing.
Looking for a Wedding Photographer in your area?
All of the photos from your wedding experience are important, but consider which ones will be the most precious to you, the ones of you and your groom, all of those special "first" moments and sharing them with your loved ones and finally, those of your cake and other details. But remember, this will be the day that you look and feel the most the beautiful in your whole life. Wouldn't you like to have images of that after its all over? Wouldn't you like to be sure that your dress, veil, hair and shoes are as comfortable and perfect as possible. Then you can just be confident with your appearance and enjoy the reason for the day rather than focusing on something that just doesn't look or feel quite right? As your photographer, I want that for you and I hope I have convinced you to reconsider having your bridal shoot!
Things to Consider Before Shopping for Wedding Dresses
Everyone knows about the special moments associated with a person's wedding. When you are getting married, it is probably the happiest day of your life. That is why people spend so long trying to get all the preparations exactly right for the wedding. They will do anything to ensure the venue looks gorgeous, and they will spend plenty of money on decorations, dresses, food and music. But what about the memories of such an event? Do you want to leave those to chance?
Some people tend to go with friends and family members as photographers for their wedding, but it is not always a good idea. Hiring a local professional makes a lot more sense, because you do not want to run the risk of the pictures turning out to be unprofessional and uninspiring. After all, your wedding is something you are going to remember till the day you die. You want those memories to look stunning in photographs. Local experts are ideal because they know the best, most picturesque locations. To ensure your memories look stunning hire the best wedding photographer in your local area. These photographers can provide a wide range of wedding-related services.
These photos are not only about quality, but they are also about capturing moments. Anyone can grab an iPhone or digital camera and take HD pictures. But can they take them from the right angles? Are they going to capture the exact moment you want to see in a photo? Unless they have photography experience, they are not going to match the quality of photographs you get from a professional. And when we say quality, we do not mean the resolution of the picture, but the contents of the picture. Only a professional photographer knows the best moments to snap a photo during a wedding ceremony.
