Here are a few tips on why you should hire a professional photographer to capture your special occasions.
Hiring the right photographer is of utmost importance if you want to preserve those moments for eternity.
Events are expensive, we get it. It all adds up, the dress, the venue, the food, the DJ, and then there is the photographer.
Events are budget heavy, and entertaining your guests well is often one of the top priorities on a family’s list. We have shot events, large and small for several years now and have talked to countless families, hearing the “our budget is limited” argument all the time.
Here is the thing: We understand that, but you can save money on food and your guests will not mind. Save money on linens, no-one will care. Play bad music, your guests may notice, but they will survive. Hire a bad or inexperienced event photographer and end up with bad images and you face regrets for a lifetime.
As a photography team, we work with families at every stage of their lives. One of the biggest complaints we hear a lot during consultations is: “We should have spent more money on our event photographer and hired a professional with experience; it is the biggest regret we have.”
You will also find that capturing a special event is quite different than capturing baby pictures or family moments. It takes a special eye to capture events and the willingness to move all day long and pay attention to all that is going on. Special Occasions are marathons for a good, experienced event photographer. We are constantly on the ball, missing nothing.
It is one of the reasons we charge what we do.
Lastly, don’t just have your Aunt or friend shoot your event. Just invite them, treat them as you will all of your other guests, and pay for a good photography studio for your special occasion. Your event is special, treat it that way!
Regrets are no fun.
Budget for photography, budget generously, and you will have no regrets! Let’s get you on the schedule for the consultation!
