What it means to be a Wedding Photographer

To be part of the happiest times of strangers lives. To  be accepted into the family’s and circle of friends, if only for that day.

To  see  Love, Turmoil, Emotions.

To  see the beauty of the flowers, the Grand Churches, the Beautiful Gardens and outdoors.

The laughter, the  Shrills, the Tears and Cheers.

The wedding dress fits the bride just right. The  Groom looking handsome in his attire.

The friends anew, from childhood too, all come to celebrate with you.

The Mom’s and Dad’s and Siblings too, all dressed up to celebrate with you.

Let’s celebrate with preachers and pictures and dinner too.

Let’s eat cake and dance the night thru.

For we are married and it feels oh so right.

5 important wedding questions you will have after you say I WILL.

  1. Set a date.
  2. Hire a professional Wedding Planner. They will help you with your wedding budget, What wedding theme you are dreaming of. From experience, they will know the best venues, the best vendors such as Professional Photographers, videographer’s, Disc Jockeys, hair dressers, floral, cakes , invitations etc.
  3. Set a budget. lf your parents are helping you with the finances with the wedding. Ask how much and how it would be distributed? See if you can set up a wedding account, so you are not asking them for S all the time. Tough questions, but you have to know. Do not over spend, be realistic, the wedding is one day, the marriage is for ever.
  4. Friday and Sunday weddings are cheaper. They are considered off days, so most venues come with discounts, a lot of the vendors will off some kind of deal. Consider people have to work on Fridays making it hard for them to choose, think about 2 lists, one for the guests that can make it to the wedding and some for just the dance. Sundays are usually a lower key wedding, tends to be smaller weddings.
  5. Give your groom something to do. lt is his wedding day to. Let him have input. This will be good to work on this has a team.
