Will a photographer help with the day of timeline?
Typically your wedding planner or day of coordinator work with venues and vendors to develop the day of timeline and ensure it is followed. If you do not have a planner or day of coordinator the development of and adherence to a timeline typically falls on the bride, member of the bridal party or family member. Although a photographer may help plan out the appropriate time you will need to capture the images you’d like, you have contracted with the photographer to take photos, not manage the timeline. However, this varies with all photography studios. Third Eye Photography does have timeline worksheets that are addressed multiple times prior to the wedding date. This helps the clients know how many hours they need coverage for as well as helps the photographer know when everything will start and end. If your photographer does not provide you with his/her own timeline worksheet it is important that your share the one you are using with him/her prior to the wedding day.
How to convince your fiance pictures are worth the investment.
- A majority of couples spend thousands of dollars on their wedding day, so it makes sense to invest in savoring those memories. Once the day has passed, memories fade and all that is left are the images.
- A point and shoot camera operated by a family member or friend will not capture the quality images that you will want to hang on your wall or create an album out of.
- A professional wedding photographer has the experience and knows what moments not to miss.
- A local photographer knows the area, knows the perfect locations and knows where to be when for the perfect lighting.
- A professional photographer is able to work with you to create a piece of artwork to savor for a lifetime, if that be high-end photo albums or photos to hang on your wall.
- Some say an average of 15-20% of your wedding budget should be spent on your photographer…Rebecca from Third Eye Photography says “no one has ever regretted having these beautiful images to show their children, family and friends.”
