Reasons to Hire a Professional Photographer for Your Wedding—Not Your Friend!

Let’s be honest; having a friend do a professional’s job almost never works out—well, unless your friend is a professional photographer who is willing to offer their services to you for free (in which case, you’re one lucky bride!).

If otherwise, try to see these reasons for why you should hire a professional muslim wedding photographer phoenix and not your friend to be your official wedding photographer.

1. A professional is committed to you ONLY.

A professional Atlanta Hindu Wedding Photographer, like Saiaf Films, will be committed to you and your wedding day only. They are guaranteed to show up on your wedding day, no questions asked. We’ve seen “friends” commit to photographing a wedding and then flake out 2 months—even a few weeks—before the wedding day. When you hire and pay a professional, they are contractually obligated to carry out the duties that you hired them for.

2. A professional has enough experience.

There’s nothing worse than having everyone standing around at your wedding not knowing what to do next. Hiring someone who has experience will most definitely help manage stress before and during the wedding. A professional arab wedding photographer Scottsdale will also have a specific way of doing things, so there won’t be too much guesswork while planning for your photography.

3. You’re guaranteed to get excellent results with a pro.

In other words, you’ll get what you pay for! Hiring a professional hindu wedding photographer Scottsdale will ensure that you get great results. Whether it’s photos or flowers, or food or coordinating, having someone who does weddings for a living will certainly give you the best outcome. It may not always be the most ideal option to spend money on a Atlanta Hindu Wedding Photographer, but really and truly, paying for a service makes such a huge difference! Not to mention that yes, there’s a contract involved, which means they are obligated to provide you with superior-quality results.

4. Your Friend Could Miss the Most Important Shots

It’s your wedding day and your friends and family will want to enjoy the celebration with you. When you hire your friends or family members to shoot your wedding it is more likely that they will be on the dance floor with you, enjoying a signature cocktail and simply having a good time. While they are enjoying themselves they are missing out on some great moments that you’ll regret not having in the years to come. Also, consider they might not even show up. You’d be surprised how many people at the last minute may not even show at your wedding. While it is not something you want to imagine happening it does happen a lot and having to find an Atlanta Hindu Wedding Photographer at the last minute will cost you a lot more.

5. Your Friend Probably Won’t Have The Right Equipment

Photography is an expensive hobby that not many can afford, even many professional photographers have had to slowly stock up on the photography equipment over the years. Not having the right equipment will make a huge difference in the quality of the images. Using an on-camera flash as opposed to an off camera flash seems like a small detail but makes a huge difference. Even if they have the right equipment they may not have any backup equipment like most professional wedding photographers have. What happens if they scratch their lens? Do they have an extra battery? These are all things that a professional photographer will have already thought of and prepared for. Aside from having the right equipment will they even know where to get prints made of your wedding? What if you wanted albums done? Can they professionally edit the images? There are a lot of things that go into shooting a wedding aside from just taking the pictures and your friends or family members may not have any idea of these considerations.

6. You won’t have to worry about straining your friendship.

When working with a professional Atlanta Hindu Wedding Photographer, if anything, you will build a relationship with them. Almost always, when hiring a friend, the relationship gets strained in some way. Either they hold a grudge against you for making them work on a festive event, or you’re not happy with your results and you just can’t tell them. It’s just not worth ruining a relationship with one of your friends.

7. You want your friend to enjoy your wedding!

If they truly are your friend, you’d want them to enjoy and celebrate with you on this very special day of your life. And if that’s not the case, then you don’t really want to even have them at your wedding.

Leave the professional wedding photography to Saiaf Films and let everyone in your life, including your friends, enjoy your party. After all, you do want everyone special in your lives to be present in your wedding photographs, don’t you?
