You’ve heard this somewhere before: “Your relative loves to take pictures and have a DSLR camera? It’d be amazing if you can invite him and ask for his help to take your pictures! You’ll be saving a lot of money and you’ll get to spend more on a whole lot more!”
Well, of course, getting someone else to do it, instead of paying additional thousands of dollars to seem good. He’ll only have to take the pictures and send them to me. How hard can that be?
But, well, if you’ve heard from those who actually did that, you’ll know that they wished they could turn back time. And we’re talking about best friends who only have a DSLR camera, not experience, or even background knowledge on the subject!
A Lifetime Happening
Can you imagine yourself handing out an important project of the company to a newcomer? That’s like throwing away a bunch of money to the sea, knowing they will get wet and become unusable.
That is what happens when you delude yourself into thinking that ‘anyone with a camera can do it’. You have prepared so much for so long. Both of you are emotionally and financially investing into this one event because both of you see this as important.
A wedding album is as important as the event. No matter how delicious the food, how beautiful the venue, and how happy everybody was, you cannot return to that time anymore. The dress, the suit, the smile and tears of that one day cannot be kept. You can only keep them in a memory; in a video and pictures.
Another thing when you ask for friends is that you’ll only get the digital files. They will most likely be in a single USB and given to you anytime they are free. You have no right to demand this and that since the service was based on friendship or family tie.
Professional wedding photographers Waterford, such as those from www.goldenmomentsphotography.ie, will make use of the money you’ve invested in printing a beautiful wedding album. They won’t hesitate to ask how do you want it to look like, how many pictures you want to be included, and will definitely deliver it as soon as it’s available.
When your own memories fail you, you will then understand that pictures never will. When videos cannot be physically ‘printed’, pictures can. You are always free to take your wedding album, open, and look through them over and over again. Unlike digital files that you need to open through the computer and needs an internet connection to access sometimes, physical pictures are different.
It’s like how some people still prefer reading physical books compared to reading on gadgets or Kindle.
Getting yourself proper wedding photographers Waterford will also mean that you will get proper advice and people to take your pictures. There won’t be cheesy or pictures taken from bad angles; photographers are always ready to snap thousands of pictures to present to you. They’ve don’t this job many times and it’s just a matter of creating amazing memories from your wedding.
