IMG_3362_01XLWith costs of everything shooting to skies, it is easy to understand why people try to find a chance to skip hiring a professional wedding photographer. If you are one of the people who think on the same line, just bring a simple thought to your mind – which of your wedding elements is going to last forever? Your wedding dress? Not of course! In fact, you are going to wear it only for the big day; for the rest of the life it is going to only keep watching your closet’s dark inner walls! Your wedding decoration? This too, not of course! Any other element? No! Your wedding photos? Yes! They are going to last right up to your next to next to next generations! So, don’t you think that you should choose the best for it? You should! And the best is professional and exquisite photography!

Why is a professional and personal wedding photographer the most right choice for your wedding? Here are only some reasons.

Professional Tools

If you are thinking that any of your friends or relatives might catch your wedding photos, so that you can save a few dollars, you might be seriously wrong. It’s not only about a camera. A professional photographer uses several tools of which a professional dSLR is just one. There are various types of lenses, flashes, light modifiers, reflectors, tripods, power packs, and other innumerable small gadgets that make your photos outstanding.


Plus a pro has backup equipment too, i.e. all these above mentioned tools into two. Imagine your photographer’s camera body locks up just while s/he was capturing the most important moment of your exchange of vows; if it’s a professional, s/he can immediately catch the moment with their backup equipment, but an amateur cannot, and you may have to repent for life!


Systematic File Storage

Take an amateur photographer you have handled the job of capturing your wedding photos just like yourself. Just as you have thousands of personal photographs occupying the memory of your computer, s/he too is in the same position. Contrary to this, a professional photographer has a well-defined system of handling several thousands of photographs s/he has to process annually. Heck, it’s their job, after all! You have a guarantee that your precious moments won’t get lost anywhere when they are on a pro’s computer!



A professional photographer, being professional, holds insurance for her/his equipment, which you won’t find if you handle the job to an amateur photographer. Imagine, your friend or aunt or colleague lost her/his camera or got it damaged in a natural disaster, just before your wedding and told you that s/he cannot afford to arrange another one! But a professional photographer being ready to face such situations has insurance which makes her/him able to arrange for secondary equipment and your job is done without any such mess.
