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!

After the Ceremony, Before the Reception....Do This!

  You have exchanged rings and vows! You are done taking wedding party pictures...now what?! Before you enter the reception hall and dance the night away take a few moments to enjoy being married. After all, this is the moment that you both have been waiting for! Don't worry about your guests, they will be fine without seeing you for another 10 minutes. Take some time to be alone as a couple. Once you enter the reception doors you will be swamped with conversations, hugs, kisses, pictures, toasts, and dancing. Eat!! Sounds crazy but my husband and I did not get to eat at our reception. I remember the wait staff preparing our plates...they handed them to us...we sat at our Sweetheart Table...was about to take a bite...and then guests started talking to us! At the end of the night we realized that we only had a piece of cake (the small piece that you feed each other for the photo op) and a sip of Sprite during the toast. Have your wedding planner prepare small plates for you and your
