Is It Even Worth All That Money?
Your video/photographer set the tone for the day! You want to know your photographer will stay positive, be kind to you, your bridal party, and your family, and will treat your loved ones how they deserve to be treated no matter the circumstances. Your photographer has more interaction with you and your loved ones than any other vendor on your day besides your planner! It’s a BIG decision!
But there’s another reason your photographer is worth investing in. Your photos will last decades into the future. 10 years after the wedding, many of the things from the wedding won’t be here anymore. But you’ll have your photos to treasure for a lifetime. You’ll be able to relive this day over and over with your pictures.
Also, a talented video/photographer will make the other investments even more valuable. Think about it this way. You say yes to the dress of your dreams, have the cascading bouquet you’ve always hoped for, and have never felt so glamorous with your hair and makeup perfect! Not to mention, you’re smiling more than you have any other day you can remember. But what if that emotion isn’t captured beautifully? What if you paid thousands for that dress, only to not love the pictures of it? What if the flowers you’ve been wanting for years aren’t photographed well? A skilled photographer who matches your style will be able to provide you with beautiful images showcasing the money, time, and thought you put into your day!
We associate pictures with how we were feeling in that moment. If we are laughing almost the entire session, and when we look back at those images we remember the joy and laughter we had in those moments! But it goes the other way too. If you felt crazy uncomfortable your whole engagement session, and felt really awkward working with someone, chances are you’re going to feel those emotions again looking back at the images. That’s why it’s important to find someone who makes you feel comfortable, relaxed, and taken care of. Someone who makes it a happy and exciting time, and shares the joy with you! This shouldn’t be a stressful experience, but a fun, relaxed one to capture such a special time! You should feel amazing about yourself during your photos! And you want to look back on those pictures and remember the joy you felt with the person who matters most to you!
