5 Myths Your Wedding Photographer Wants You to Stop Believing

Congratulations! You’re finally getting married! You are probably contemplating now whether or not to hire a professional Los Angeles Arab Wedding Photographer or just ask a photography enthusiast friend to cover your wedding. Before you even decide to pick the latter, know first the many different myths that most brides and grooms believe when it comes to their wedding photography.

1. “Provide disposable cameras which guests can use, rather than hiring a professional”

This is a popular option for unplugged weddings. However, remember that disposable cameras cannot provide the same superior quality photos that high-end cameras can offer. Better yet, if disposable cameras are not really needed, save the money and spend it on a professional wedding photographer. Never assume that these toy cameras can replace the high-quality photos of a professional photographer, or else you run the risk of never having to relive your wedding in the years to come.

2. “Anyone in the family can be my official photographer”

This is likely the most common misbelief that bridal couples swear by. Many couples make the mistake of appointing a family member or a friend to be their official Los Angeles Palestinian Wedding Videographer. Bear in mind that the skills and professional experience of a seasoned photographer is unparalleled. Professional photographers, like Saiaf Films, can anticipate what’s going to happen next and are already in position to capture the moment before it even starts to unfold, while your friend, on the other hand, may get carried away by the event and forgets his duty as your appointed wedding photographer.

3. “An elaborate and lavish venue will make my photos look stunning”

Yes, they will, for sure. However, although a sexy venue makes great photo and video opportunity, it doesn’t pose that much significance to experienced photographers. A skilled Los Angeles Muslim Wedding Videographer can make your wedding footages and pictures look just as stunning even in a very simple venue. But if you choose to go for inexperienced shooter, it is a challenge to make photos look breathtaking even in the most magnificent location. When hiring a professional, always consider the lifetime value of their products.

4. “The more expensive the photographer, the better photos I’ll get”

Generally speaking, with a professional Los Angeles Muslim Wedding Photographer, you’re guaranteed to get what you pay for. However, there are also some out there who price their services expensively to create an impression of superior quality. Although it’s reasonable to spend around $3,000 on your wedding photography, if a wedding photographer’s price starts at around $5,000 with very minimal sample photos, you’re better off finding someone else.

5. “Table shots are always necessary”

Table shots are a great way to ensure that you have photos of everyone present in your wedding, but this can be challenging since the only time when everyone is at their tables is during dinner. Also, according to professionals at Saiaf Films, most brides rarely pick table shots as part of the wedding album. If you these photos are really a must, know that this can take an hour or more to complete a route through an average crowd of 100-150 guests. Perhaps, this is your best excuse to provide disposable cameras on every table.

Your wedding photos can last a lifetime; that is why they are expensive. While $3,000 may sound a little too much for a professional Los Angeles Palestinian Wedding Photographer, also remember that these professionals spend weeks up to a month to perfect your every photo and compile your wedding album. If you’re willing to spend thousands for your wedding dress, and venue which you’re only be having for a day, photographs are the only mementos you’ll have to reminisce that very special day for the rest of your marital lives.
