Weddings are some of the most precious events in a person’s life, on this special day, two people pledge to share all that they have for the rest of their lives, when you think about it that way it makes sense why people spend vast amounts of their money on one occasion.

One might ask what’s the point of paying someone to take pictures of the event when almost everyone nowadays has smartphones with great cameras on them? You could also ask a friend to help you out for free if they have a DSLR camera. The answer to that is simple, photography isn’t something as simple as pointing a camera and clicking a button, it requires skill and knowledge, otherwise a picture can never do justice to the moment that it captures. Wedding photographers have the right equipment and the experience needed to provide superb coverage, and they do more than just take pictures and make videos, they offer a variety of other services such as editing pictures, making digital and hard copy albums and carrying out special photo shoots of the bride and the groom.

Every wedding photography service offers different packages, each package has a set of services that cover the event, depending on your budget you could go for their most comprehensive package, one that provides the complete coverage of the event. Some photographers even give you the option to come up with a customized package that suits your requirements, there’s a lot of options to choose from so make sure to take a look at at least 3 to 4 wedding photographers before deciding on one. You should keep in mind to go for a photographer who readily adjusts to your schedule, a wedding is a special day on which you shouldn’t have to make any compromises at all. A wedding photographer doesn’t come cheap, but their services are worth the money since they can help you immortalize your precious day in all its glory.

Wedding Planning Tips for 2017

Tips for planning a wedding in 2017

Wedding planning season is upon us. The booking process for most vendors is at its busiest right now. If you’re still planning on a summer wedding, it is probably time to look at a Friday or Sunday wedding. Here are a few of the trends I’m noticing for 2017.

Smaller Weddings

A mix between the elopements of 2016 and the larger outdoor weddings of 2015. These mix the best of both. You get to have the epic beautiful locations of an elopement, with all of your favorite people around you. Watch for more “un-venue” weddings this year. People are ditching the traditional wedding venue and finding alternatives, like farmer’s fields or forest meadows. We like to see these around 25-50 guests. The trade off to these remote locations is generally electricity being a challenge. We often run a small generator to run the reception and ceremony music.

Farm to Table

We’re also seeing a lot of Farm to Table dinner style weddings. These make dinner the main event of the night. Nothing is better than a grand feast with your closest friends and family to celebrate your wedding vows. Find places near you that offer farm to table dinners and see if they can do a wedding! If you need more inspiration, check out Kinfolk‘s dinners.

Our clients are putting most of their energy into creating a great party atmosphere for their reception. Traditions are going to the wayside in order to concentrate on having great memories with the people that matter most to them. DJ’s spinning vinyl, late-night snacks, great beer, wine, and cocktails are all a high priority. No more awkward garter toss, instead it’s replaced with Uncle Larry’s epic dance moves.
