Hiring a professional wedding photographer may seem such a wasteful extravaganza but it is the work of that photographer which remains as evidence of the most memorable day in your life. Planning a wedding is a stressful affair. There is also a budget that must be met. Many people spare no expense while planning the food, flower, Wedding Dress or venue but while hiring a photographer go with a family member or a non-professional. They do not seem to understand that after 20 years all that will remain of the wedding day are the photographs and not the food and flowers or dress. A professional wedding photographer will not only be the best investment at your wedding but also sometimes act as an unpaid wedding planner.

We hear arguments like “Their work is so simple, yet their charge is so high” or “They work for only a couple of hours but charge a week’s wage” or even” I can take the same images with my brother camera”. These ideas are utterly foolish to begin with. A professional photographer’s gear alone costs several thousands of dollars. Then there are editing tools and software and printing techniques that are quite expensive too. A photographer is also able to make a photograph look simple yet elegant through years of training and practice.

There are several valid reasons why one must hire a professional photographer for their dream wedding:

  • Experience: A good professional photographer will begin as an apprentice of another professional photographer and gather experience. An experienced photographer will know exactly where to stand and click the picture. A person with a fancy camera will do only half the job as you need the eyes of a professional to access the environment, lighting and adjust the ISO, shutter speed and expose so as to bring out the best possible picture. He knows exactly when and where to look to immortalize that moment.

  • Creativity: Creativity is not something you acquire by experience but what you instinctively develop. A professional will have the creativity that a non-professional lacks just because a professional is accustomed to the proceedings of a wedding. Creativity is what makes a normal moment come to life with colors.

  • Knowledge: A professional is at complete ease with his gear and can make it work at his will any way he pleases. Also a profound knowledge about light and optics is a must for a photographer. So when some gear malfunctions a photographer can still manage to bring out the best with what he is left with.

  • Lighting: A wedding photographer knows how to deal with tricky lighting. A photographer will be able to click the best photograph whether it is a cave dark ceremony room or bright sunny outdoor weddings. Even change of lighting demands change in the camera which the photographer will be able to adjust with ease.

  • Quality: While hiring a professional you may be assured of the quality of the photographs. The person will spend the whole day shooting photos. Then he will select the best from them and spend hours editing them for you so that you get what you paid for. You will be amazed at the difference of quality between a professional and a non-professional.

  • Commitment: A professional is thoroughly committed to you for the wedding day. Even in the case of an emergency when he has to back out himself he will send a substitute who is just as able. He will also have secondary gears ready in case his primary ones fail. In a word he will not let you down.
  • No strained relationship: Believe it or not many a friendships have been ruined or strained because people let friends do the job of a professional. Either the friend is miffed at doing the job for free or you are not satisfied with the result but could not tell him to his face.

If you are worried about exceeding your budget by hiring a professional wedding photographer, there are many ways you can keep it within the budget.

  • You can ask the professional wedding photographer whether he can do more payments.
  • You can ask guests to give photography vouchers as gift.
  • Planning an off season wedding.
  • Planning a mid-week wedding.
  • Book a photographer who accepts pay by the hour or booking for only half day (six hours).
  • Book a digital package only
  • As more then one them for a discount rate

Wedding is the most important day in a woman’s life and they start planning their wedding day since they are 5. They dream everything at their wedding is perfect staring from the groom to the flowers. So let your wedding day be full of joy and entertainment and stop worrying that a friend or family member is irreparably ruining the once in a lifetime memories they are supposed to be capturing. Let your friends and family members enjoy the wedding and leave the photography at the able hands of a professional.
