Saving Money on Wedding Photography
Weddings are momentous occasions to all people involved; especially the families of the bride and groom. One very important aspect of a wedding is to commemorate the event with beautiful pictures so that the day never really disappears.
Hiring professional photographers is usually the preferred way for couples to capture the moments of their wedding forever.
Professional photographers can charge an obscene amount of money for their services at times, but there are a few ways that you can save money on photography at your wedding.
Here are some of things that you can do to save some of your money for the honeymoon instead. Lets take a look at what you can do.
1. Place disposable cameras on tables at your reception and let your guests capture special moments for you.
2. Ask a friend or family member to take special photos of the ceremony for you or videotape it
3. Check at colleges and universities who are studying photography and hire a student to do it. You can get professional looking photos for a fraction of the price.
4. Have your photographs taken before the wedding by having your wedding party to gather together at a professional photographers shop
5. Have your photos taken before the ceremony and keep the negatives yourself so that you can develop them later and make prints
During one of the most important days in your life, pictures and videos can make the day last forever. The above mentioned tips can also make sure that you will not go broke in the process.
When it comes to the disposable cameras, you can often find cameras that are decorated with wedding themes. If you cant, you can have the bridal party decorate them instead.
Using digital cameras can limit the amount of pictures that you have to take while making them easy to reproduce. Digital camera technology can make even an amateur take professional looking pictures. You can even use the prints to create thank you cards later that are personalized that show the guests and/or the bridal party.
