So, you’re engaged! Congratulations! Now it’s time to start planning your big day. One of the first decisions you’ll have to make is who will photograph your wedding. While it may be tempting to ask a friend or family member to do the job, we recommend hiring a certified professional photographer (CPP). Here’s why:
- They Have the Experience and Training
CPPs have years of experience photographing weddings. They know how to capture all the important details and moments, even in tricky lighting situations. In addition, CPPs have been through an extensive training and certification process administered by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). This means they know how to use their camera equipment and editing software like a pro.
- They’re Experienced at Working with Wedding Vendors
Your wedding day will be a whirlwind of activity with lots of moving parts. A CPP knows how to efficiently work with all the other vendors, from the florist to the DJ, to make sure your day runs smoothly and that all the details are captured beautifully in photos.
- They Have Backup Equipment…Just in Case
Wedding days are unpredictable, and anything can happen. A CPP comes prepared with backup equipment in case of any unforeseen challenges, like bad weather or a malfunctioning camera.
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, so you want everything to be perfect. Hiring a CPP is one of the best decisions you can make to ensure that your wedding photos are absolutely beautiful and that your day runs smoothly.
