It is one of the most important days of your life
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, so wedding photography should be your first investment to remember this day. You want to remember every moment, and a skilled wedding photographer will do just that.
A wedding photographer will also document the emotions you experienced on your big day - joy, happiness, love, and laughter.
You deserve to have lovely memories that you can look back on for years to come because your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and you never know where loved ones will be in your life in years to come.
Your future happiness is an investment in a good wedding photographer.
They will be with you forever
Due to the fact that you will be too busy getting married to take photos or to even think to take photos, you should invest in a good wedding photographer. You need someone skilled at capturing the emotions of the day.
Your wedding images will be everything you could have hoped for thanks to your photographer and if you choose a photographer whose work you love, they will capture it in the style you dream of!
When you look back on your wedding photos in 20 years, it will have been worthwhile. You can show future generations and pass them down your family tree. Therefore, it is important to choose a photographer who can capture memories that will be appreciated forever.
Share with family and friends
Maybe certain family or friends can’t make it to your wedding day, or maybe you opted for an intimate wedding day. Wedding photography should be your first investment simply to share your story with loved ones, in this case.
You can give them a piece of your wedding through photos instead of sending them a thank you card for your wedding present. Even if it may be heartbreaking to be apart from your loved ones on your wedding day, beautiful wedding photos will still allow you to share the joy of the occasion.
See the parts you missed!
Weddings are a flurry of joy and excitement. The majority of couples are shocked by how quickly their wedding day goes by. Months or even years of preparing have flown by in an instant.
Wedding photography should be your first investment as it will make sure you don't miss anything; whether it's when you exchange vows or when your grandmother busts out her best moves in the middle of the dance floor, we try our best to capture all the different moments!
Don’t miss out on the reactions and funny moments that happened when you weren’t around.
It is also worth considering a second photographer so all the angles and more moments are captured.
Captures family and friends at that stage of life
Wedding photography should be your first investment so you can document this wonderful stage of your life while it is enjoyed with family and friends.
It will be amazing to look back on your wedding photos years later to see how people have changed, whether you are inviting grandparents, aunts, uncles, kids, teenagers, or newborns to your wedding.
One of the biggest regrets couples have after their wedding day, is skipping wedding photography. The only evidence you have left after your wedding day, are the images!
Seeing every detail and remembering the planning and story behind your unique day. Even the hiccups - it is all part of the story and you will appreciate looking back on it and having a laugh.
Are you ready to invest?
A good guideline for your investment in wedding photography is between 10% and 15% of your whole wedding budget. This should guarantee that the photographer you're working with is of a quality to successfully capture your most priceless moments.
