Wedding is a medley of family members, friends and multiple vendors, all moving in various directions to prepare for that one thing; walk down the aisle. Wedding is perhaps the most important occasion in one’s life. No amount of planning is too much for this ‘once in a lifetime’ event. There are a number of things that one needs to take care of to make this day a special one. From wedding gowns and caterers, to the decorators, one needs to ensure that everything is perfect for this big day.
The day of wedding comes and goes like a flash, but what remain are the fond memories of it that are cherished for posterity. Photos and videos capture these special moments frame by frame and refresh theses memories whenever we see them. They bring back the memories just as though the wedding happened only yesterday! Seeing them with our children by our side and grand children on lap is only to be experienced. Given the importance of wedding photos, one simply cannot trust any Tom, Dick and Harry with this task. One needs to ensure that the photographer is someone who captures every joyous moments as they happen, such as the getting ready, the arrival of the guests, the décor of the venue, the rejoicing, and of course the exchange of vows, all in an artistic fashion. The value in hiring a professional photographer/videographer is just as important as any other important task of the wedding. In fact, besides professional photos, a well made video has become an integral part of any wedding.
Finding a wedding photographer is a step in the wedding planning process that should not be taken lightly. Some of the questions that one should ask a prospective photographer are:
· Will you be visiting the venue before the day of the ceremony to plan how and where you will capture the event?
· Will you arrive earlier than the schedule to capture the venue, the getting ready, and the preparations?
· Do you have a portfolio that you can show us?
· Are you flexible and able to travel to distant locations?
