So you’re probably reading this for one of two reasons:

  1. You’re getting married and need a wedding photographer.
  2. You’re getting married and not sure if a professional photographer is worth the money.

And if neither of those reasons pertain to you (maybe you are just dreaming about weddings) then, welcome anyway! Hiring a professional beach wedding photographer is an easy choice if you ask us. And with our Florida Beach Weddings company, you have the option add a staff photographer to any of our wedding ceremony packages, for a small fee. Is it worth it? Let’s explore the top 5 reasons to hire a professional wedding photographer.

1. Experience

Well a no-brainer really, but let’s clarify. So having a friend snap some shots on his/her latest iPhone may seem tempting to save a few bucks on photography. However, the angles, tricky lighting, perfect timing, are all things a few YouTube tutorials cannot replace when faced with years of experience. Professional wedding photographers have to know the flow of the ceremony to make sure the bride and groom are the objects of attention. Also, you want your friend to enjoy your wedding ceremony and not have to think about (or miss) any important shots or poses. It’s definitely a lot of pressure to put on someone. It’s less stressful to know your special day is in capable and experienced hands for the first kiss, Unity sand ceremony pouring, ring exchange, etc. Our photographer have down hundreds of beach ceremonies in all weather and lighting conditions. They love doing it and you can check out our photo gallery to see for yourself!

2. Reliability

Late, last minute cancellation, dead battery, full storage space. All things your professional wedding photographer will NOT have issues with. The wedding professionals are prepared. And they have a back up for batteries, memory cards, and worst case, even themselves. Another professional could stand in. Whereas your friend who caught the stomach bug probably doesn’t have a replacement on hand.

3. Editing

So getting the perfect shot is only half of it: brighten, darken, soften, touch up, remove unwanted objects. This is all part of the job for an experienced photographer/editor who has done thousands of shots. That speedo jumping character in the photo background can be easily erased with a few handy photoshop tricks to preserve the beauty and magic of your special day.

4. Affordability

Wait, WHAT?! Yes, there are photographers out there who charge more money for your wedding photoshoot than a down payment on your new home. But our Beach Wedding Company isn’t in that category. So by eliminating the middle man and using staff photographers, the result is easy on your wallet.

5. Forever

Your marriage, your vows, your photos. Your wedding photos will adorn your walls, Christmas cards, Facebook page, Instagram feed…and they never get old. Your wedding photos are your one way to preserve the beauty and experience of your destination wedding: the beach venue, package decorations, first kiss and more. These photos will be passed on for generations and hiring a professional wedding photographer means clear and perfect shots and the preservation of a once in a lifetime experience.
