Looking to save money on photography?

For many, your wedding is a once in a lifetime event. You will want to cherish this day for the rest of your lives. What better way to do that than with photographs and/or video!! The photographs taken at your wedding are your memories of the big day so it is important that you hire a good photographer-preferably one who specializes in weddings.

Here are a couple of tips that may help you save some cash!

  • Consider hiring a professional photographer for the formal shots of your ceremony only.
  • Place disposable cameras on the reception tables for guests to capture candid moments.
  • For best results, book your photographer at least nine (9) months before the wedding.
  • Try to negotiate at least one free parents' album with the purchase of the bride and groom's album.
  • Though you shouldn’t trust your wedding photography to just anyone, ask friends if they know of a pro who does weddings part time. A photographer who has other sources of income, can usually afford to charge less.
  • Lessen photography cost. Schedule toasts, cake cutting, and bouquet toss for soon after dinner so the photographer can capture moments and leave.
  • Getting prints of every image is expensive. Ask photographer if instead of getting hundreds of images in proof, you can select maybe two hundred.
  • Hire an associate photographer. Many pros have photographers working under them who they contract out for a discounted rate.
  • See if a professional videographer will edit amateur footage.


Need help in determining the type of photographer you need? Not sure what to ask a photographer when you are interviewing them? Need help making sure that everything in the contract is correct?
If the answer is YES to any of these questions, give me a call! I will be happy to assist you!

10 Ways to Save $$$$

10 Best Ways to Cut Costs {according to Mindy Weiss..with my 2 cents added}
1. Trim the guest list: the fewer guests--the fewer tables--the fewer centerpieces, the fewer expenses
2. Choose a gorgeous setting: this cuts down on the cost of decorations
3. Use a reception site that is already equipped with tables, chairs, flatware, and staff: save on delivery fees
4. Start the wedding earlier in the day: an early wedding means less food...unless you and your future spouse are foodies!
5. Limit the alcoholic offerings to wine, beer, and a signature cocktail ...or skip the alcohol altogether!
6. Move the wedding from Saturday to Sunday: or possibly to a weekday. Venues are less expensive during the week.
7. Eliminate the champagne toast: guests can raise their punch, water, or tea in your honor
8. Hire a DJ instead of a band. 
9. Opt for standard sized invitations: irregular shaped invitations cost more to ship.
10. Skip favors: unless they are spectacular, unusual, and usable. Otherwise, the…

Class of 2018!

Congratulations to the class of 2018! I had the honor of setting up a graduation dinner for my god-daughter, Madisen, who also happens to be one of the valedictorians of her class.   Graduation day brings a roller coaster of emotions for the graduates and their families. It’s a time of celebration, achievement, anxiety, and fear of the unknown.
