Helpful Wedding Photography Tips

Sometimes choosing the smallest or least expensive photography package is not the most cost-effective option. One bride chose the least expensive package and afterwards spent $700 to buy additional prints that were not included in her original package. A more comprehensive package would have cost her only an additional $250 more if purchased up front.

Choose a photography package rather than purchasing all of the items separately. If there is something that you really want that is not included in a package, ask the photographer if something can be swapped without increasing the price.

ALWAYS hire a professional. DON’T ask your friend who "takes good pictures" to photograph your wedding. Hire a professional and one that has experience photographing weddings. You’ve only got ONE chance to get it right – so don’t take chances.

Photographic Style - Are the images that you are shown, what you would like to see? Can you picture yourself photographed the same way? Is there a satisfactory mix in different styles? There are "buzz" words flying about everywhere about photojournalism, formal, classic contemporary, and so on. All colorful adjectives aside, do YOU like it?

About Digital Files vs. Film Any image in film can be easily scanned into digital formats to allow the maximum amount of versatility and options. Digital files are logically preferred in many cases, but isn't’t it good to know that when that special image is captured that there is the opportunity to turn it into a crystal clear poster or an even larger presentation.All photos can be touched up if needed by our experts.All images can be converted to digital files for ease of handling and sharing

One first needs to define just what one is going to do with the photographs. For most things digital is far more convenient if you're shooting hundreds of images, making prints on home inkjet printers and posting on web sites and email. Film and digital do different things better and compliment each other. Neither is going away, although film will decline in areas where digital excels, like news. Film has already disappeared from professional newspaper use a year or so ago, although small town papers may still use it, and likewise, no digital capture system has come anywhere near replacing 8x10" large format film for huge exhibition prints that need to be hellaciously detailed. And for other things like landscape photography for reproduction and large fine prints film is better.
