Transcript: The question I was asked was why you need a wedding photographer? So, uh, I think where it comes from this is that people are always looking how to save money on weddings and you know, we’re in an age where everybody’s carrying a camera in their pocket, uh, of course in the form of their cell phone. And so it’s tempting to think that you don’t need a professional wedding photographer for your wedding. You’ll just ask your friends and family to take pictures for you, which you know they’re going to do anyway. But I urge you to not depend upon your friends and family to take your wedding photographs, photographs. The reason is that you really want nice photos and nice photos isn’t just because a professional may have a nicer camera. The thing is, is that, uh, a professional photographer is going to understand, first off, what photos, uh, you know, do people typically get, do you want to make sure, for example, that you get the traditional photos of like you and your husband, you and the bridal party, you and the parents, uh, you will want these to have been staged appropriately.
And to make sure that they’re captured. Of course. The second thing is, is that, uh, a professional photographer is going to know, uh, how to make the photos look good. Uh, and so for example, that means you know, what’s going to be the best lighting, the best poses. A, you know, what’s her good side, bad side. He’s all these things that, uh, a lot of us aren’t going to be aware of when it comes to photos and particularly for example, when it comes to lighting, they’re going to ask why they always carry things like light boxes and light meters and backgrounds and that these backgrounds, these are all designed to help you look your best as opposed to a, just sort of random, uh, iPhone photo. And what they do is really, it’s kind of rude if you think about it, to try and ask your friends and family who are there as your guest.
They want to be there to celebrate your wedding. A, they’re taking their photos really just to kind of as their own sort of personal keepsake. They don’t want to have the pressure of having to remember, you know, am I catching the right photo, the best possible photo? Uh, and so, you know, this is the why. For example, again, at the end, you will want a professional photographer there. And, uh, and other, uh, articles. We’ll talk about ways you can use to save money on your photographers. But in, you know, the number one way to think about this is yes, I’m going to need a professional photographer a and we’ll worry about how it will save money on hiring them or how we can save money in other parts of the wedding to cover the cost of that professional photographer.
