Hiring a professional wedding photographer may be one of the most costly aspects of your wedding.
You may now breathe a huge sigh of relief… You don’t need to hire a professional photographer to shoot photographs at your wedding!
There are a plethora of enjoyable methods to save money and capture lovely images of your big day.
If you’re looking to save money on your wedding by being frugal, taking care of the wedding pictures yourself makes a lot of sense! Here are four fantastic ways to get unique wedding photographs…
Ask Guests to Bring Digital Cameras
All of your guests should bring their digital cameras and take as many pictures as they’d like. Later, everyone may save their photos to Flickr, Webshots, Picasa, Shutterfly, or other photo-sharing websites. You and your guests can have personalized prints or download favourites in this way. If you have a decent photo printer and photo paper, you may even make your own wedding photographs! Everyone will receive the photos they want this way. It’s far less expensive than hiring a photographer. Additionally, rather than looking posed, all of the images will appear natural and enjoyable. You can even use the best ones in your wedding video.
Consider providing disposable cameras (or renting amusing ones!) for your wedding guests to use during the ceremony and reception. It’s a fantastic approach to getting natural photos of everyone having a good time. Before departing, ask that guests leave their disposable cameras in a basket by the entrance. After that, all you have to do is develop all of the images (you may either print them or save them on a disc). You choose the ones you enjoy the most. Plus, it’s simple to share them with all of your guests on social media. I’ve seen some of the greatest wedding photos ever taken using a disposable camera. There’s even a reconditioned disposable wedding camera if you want to have a Green marriage!
Go to Local Portrait Studio
Visit a local portrait studio and have them take pictures of you in your wedding gear. They provide a number of cost-effective photo packages to choose from. You may still have everyone bring their digital cameras to the wedding so that you can get professional photos as well as informal shots!
Take your wedding dress with you on your honeymoon and shoot your own wedding photographs at a variety of beautiful places while you’re there! Others (yes, even strangers) would be delighted to take pictures of the two of you at numerous amazing locations. This is a fantastic and creative idea for couples who don’t take their wedding photos too seriously. It also relieves the burden of wondering if you’ll get the precise image at your wedding or not. For people who enjoy unscripted moments rather than formalized ones, this is for you.
