As a bride, when it comes to your wedding day it might seem like you have a million things to do and not nearly enough time to do it all. You have to make checklists and prioritize everything including the flowers, the caterer, the venue, the guest list, and of course deciding on a wedding photographer. When picking a wedding photographer be sure to discuss expectations, photography style, and overall vision. Wedding photographers are a must-have on your special day.

Here are four reasons why Photographers are the Secret Wedding Ingredient:

  • The first reason seems obvious, they are there to capture the moments. It’s their job to document all the excitement: the bride walking down the aisle, the vows, the heartfelt toasts, and the embarrassing family members on the dance floor. They record everything on the most important day of a couple’s life.
  • The second reason why wedding photographers are the secret wedding ingredient is that they are professionals who have your best interests in mind. A wedding photographer knows how to utilize natural lighting, scope out good locations and set up the best shot. A friend with an iPhone camera doesn’t cut it in the wedding industry. The photographs taken on your wedding day will be passed along to family members, blown up, and displayed around your house for years to come. You only take your wedding photographs once, so you want them to look good.
  • The third reason is that wedding photographers always come prepared. Not only do they have backup camera lenses, memory cards, and other equipment just in case something goes wrong. They are also wedding professionals that have become experts at weddings and event management! It’s not easy wrangling family members and guests, thinking on the fly for photo locations and posing, all while managing a timeline to make sure you eat dinner while it’s still hot. Wedding photographers often serve as pseudo coordinators on your wedding day and a good wedding photographer goes a LONG way toward making your day more enjoyable.
  • The fourth reason is that having a wedding photographer means less stress on the entire wedding party. They coordinate photos with bridesmaids, groomsmen, family photos and the happy couple. They know the itinerary and schedule their shots accordingly. Wedding Photographers are significant. They are the secret ingredient because they can make the whole day easier.
