Do you really need to hire a wedding photographer? Your best buddy just bought a new camera. He is eager to cover your wedding. Or maybe better that you have a digital camera and your sister can take all the wedding pictures. Then why spend precious money on a wedding photographer?
First of all, your wedding day is the most important day of your life. You want wedding photography to be done thoroughly. Your friend or relative who is very proficient with his or her gear may be ready to cover your wedding but they are there to enjoy the gala day as any other invitee. So they may get involved in all the festivities and miss precious candid wedding moments that a professional wedding photographer who is there for the wedding photography will never do. A wedding photographer sees your wedding not through the naked eye but through his or her lenses. After several years when you look back you can see that all those beautiful wedding pictures are there even when your memory of those moments has faded.
Secondly, in this digital age photography has become easy. You can always take some random clicks on your wedding day and check the pictures later. But hiring a wedding photographer ensures that you do not have to depend on those haphazard pictures and few selfies to be all that is your wedding day memory. A wedding photographer who is always present on your wedding day captures each and every wedding ritual and moment to preserve them forever.
The last but most important reason to hire a wedding photographer is to cover each and every angle of wedding photography. Wedding photography is not only about clicking some wedding ritual or bride and groom pictures. It’s about covering every angle of a wedding ceremony. A wedding photographer not only takes beautiful snaps of bride and groom but he or she also takes picture of all the groups and guests, the decoration, the food, the candid wedding moments and every precious wedding ritual moment that can only be done by a professional wedding photographer. He or she will make sure you will not miss on those beautiful moments. So hire a wedding photographer. It may increase your wedding budget a little bit extra but will go a long way in preserving your wedding day memories.
