Why You Should Get a Wedding Album
From experience, we have come to the conclusion that couples almost never look at the thousands of digital images we have given them on the CD. They would look at it once, may be twice. They would choose one or two pictures to print and hang on the wall, then the CD goes in the drawer to collect dust and rarely comes out in the next decade. Wouldn't it be great if your photographer adds a tremendous value to your collection by giving you something that will last you lifetime. An ALBUM! An immaculate, luxurious piece of art, that you would be thrilled to display in your living room for everyone to see.
How Many Hours of Wedding Photography Coverage Do You Need?
Let's face it, people do not get married every day. You do not know what you need and don't know where to start. Luckily there are wedding planners, DJ's, musicians, cake makers, cinematographers, bridal boutiques and photographers to name just a few... So, let's cover the photography part. How many hours of coverage do you need? A typical wedding coverage consists of four major photography components and two not so major or optional ones. You figure, four hours should be enough. The photographer will snap a few pictures while we're getting ready, then she will drive over to the ceremony and take pictures of that and then she will make us look amazing in the portraits right after the ceremony, she will also take formal portraits of everyone in the bridal party, then she will drive over to the reception site and take pictures of everything there including the last dance. Four hours should be enough, right? Wrong.
Something to Consider
One photographer who has been shooting wedding for over 7 years says that guests are constantly pulling out their phones and not really paying attention to the ceremony, brides will get pictures of a bunch of guests all looking at their phones or iPads instead of looking at the bride and groom! Another photographer said: ““If you’re standing up taking a picture, if you’re in an aisle, if your phone’s going off, if you’re texting or watching the game, you really just need to stop,” (Hoer). We know your guests are excited about your wedding and would like to participate in documenting your beautiful wedding. However, wouldn’t it be so much more romantic if everyone enjoyed the ceremony looking at you and your groom rather than into their mobile devices?
