Why Should I Have A Photographer At My Wedding?
Updated: Oct 17, 2019
Your big day has taken years to plan, you've spent all your hard earned money and time into making this the most perfect day, you've made things and developed a knack for details so take it from me, you're going to want to capture all of it!
Memories are so important, especially for those big moments in life therefore its key to let a professional capture those for you. Being a photographer myself the one constant thing I hear my brides tell me after their day is that, it went too quick! They were amazed at the photos I had taken as they had no idea most of the moments that were even happening around them. From bridal prep in the morning, those nervous jitters just before the doors open to walk down the aisle, champagne at 8'o clock in the morning, just because it’s your wedding day and the first looks from your loved ones when you've exchanged your vows. All those little moments go by in the blink of an eye and before you know it you're sat together, married looking through your photos thinking, I'm so glad we invested in this!
Your photographer won’t just be there taking photos, oh no they're so much more than that. I like to keep an eye on timings for my couples to ensure that their day runs smooth. Fix the odd seam that's come lose (Yes, I always carry with me an emergency sowing kit because you never know!) or pour the prosecco to keep there nerves at bay. I'll be there to get everyone rounded up for photos, defuse any unwanted tensions and promise to keep you topped up with drink!
You should hire a photographer at your wedding because we've done this, we have your back and we live and breathe not just photography but weddings, that's why we have centred our careers around them! And honestly, you're in the best hands. I can assure you there won’t be a dry eye when looking through your photos when you receive them from your photographer, and the fact you get to relive that whenever you like is something you will never regret.
