Why Hire a Professional Wedding Photographer for Your Wedding Day


“I have a friend who knows how to handle a camera and takes awesome pictures”; “My colleague aspires to be a wedding photographer and he won’t charge us”; “My cousin has a sophisticated camera, we can as well use him.”

These are some of the reasons why some couples don’t want to hire a professional wedding photographer. At the end of the day, they have themselves to blame (they regret ever using an amateur).

Your wedding day is a day you’re filled with joy and excitement, and you wouldn’t want a friend, cousin or colleague of yours to spoil the joy, fun, excitement, and in the real sense the lifetime memories he/she ought to have captured during your wedding ceremony. Your wedding marks the start of the “love story creation.” It is the role of the photographer to weave the love story around the smiles, stolen kisses, joyful giggles, and the exciting moments. These are some of the reasons why you need to hire a professional wedding photographer, and also for you to have the rest of mind. The aspect of choosing a photographer is very essential in the wedding planning process. Be sure the photographer is up to the standards you want for your photographs before considering price.


A professional wedding photographer is that individual who possess the skills, creativity, experience, equipment, and professionalism that are needed to produce a great and high quality wedding photos. It is not only about having a professional camera, but must know what wedding photography entails, have good communication, concise information and pricing, and knows what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. The day for your friend or colleague to showcase his camera or figure out his/her learning experience is not your wedding day.

A professional photographer must bring all the important and useful equipment when coming to a wedding. These equipment include professional cameras, several lenses, strobes, many memory sticks, batteries, adapters, cords, lighting sources, light stands, light modifiers, and the toolbox. There is possibility that he/she may not use all these equipment, but they are necessary to be taken along to the wedding.

Weddings are some of the most expensive lifetime events that people get financially involved in, and there are a lot of valuable hours and money that are spent to make the wedding day the most memorable one. That is why choosing a photographer who is an expert in wedding photography is crucial, so that all the valuable resources you put together in making your wedding event great and memorable are not wasted.

In becoming a wedding photographer, professionalism is of utmost importance. It is necessary for a wedding photographer to have the skills necessary to promptly and effectively handle any situation that may show up on the wedding day, and even with a heartwarming smile while bringing the situation under control. A wedding is an emotional occasion, and it is necessary to share in the excitement and enthusiasm, and putting away any form of stress.

You only have your wedding photos as the only thing that remains after your wedding event. All other things you paid for are gone, but the wedding photos remains for years. Your children, grandchildren, and even great grandchildren will have access to them and share in the smiles even when you are gone. It is the photographer that you hire that will make this happen, by giving you the best and quality wedding captures and photos that will thrill your mind up till old age.
