Professionals vs. Amateurs

A great wedding coordinator friend of ours (Heidi from COUTURE CELEBRATIONS) posted a great little food for thought on her blog today. You can check it out here: I totally agree with her and think its something for everyone to really think about. In todays hard economy I know everyone really wants to get the best deal out there but with your wedding do you really want to take a chance on some vendors like your photographer? In college I knew of a lot of people that would put up ad’s to shoot a wedding and would do them for very cheap, sometimes the photos came out OK and sometimes they really didn’t. Even someone who does photography part time for a few years isn’t going to have the expertise to give you the shots that you deserve on your wedding day like a true pro. A high quality professional can produce results far more than you would ever imagine and years down the road you will usually be pretty happy for selecting a professional. I love Heidis quote “But not getting what you expect is NOT a deal.”, this can be so true when it comes to photography. Sometimes instead of comparing packages from all different photographers I think its better to find out who’s work you like and then see if you can fit their work into your budget. Sometimes you might have to pick a more basic package and not get all of the albums you would like to right away, but those can always be created later, and what’s the point of having multiple albums if you aren’t happy with the photos in them? Just something to think about :)
