Here Comes The Bride... Now that you are ready to stand next to your groom at the altar, make sure your are not stressing out about the cost of anything especially your wedding pictures.

Cutting the cost of your fabulous wedding pictures is very tricky.  Wedding pictures can be as important for generations to come as the two people getting married.  Pictures have historical value in that your geneology can be traced to wedding pictures.  You may want to skimp on other areas of your wedding but don't skimp too much on your pictures.  The best photographer in town my not be affordable but you certainly don't want to use only disposable cameras.  At least seek out a family member or a friend who has a high quality digital camera.  Perhaps the number of pictures will need to considered.

Remember you want to look as beautiful on your wedding day as +Kate Middleton+ plus looked on her marriage to Prince William.

Selecting a Cost Effective Photographer

Here Comes The Bride... as you march down the aisle, don't stress about the price tag on any of your wedding day celebration choices.  Especially your wedding pictures.  During the planning phase of your wedding, look at ways to cut the photography cost but you want to ensure that you  have the beautiful pictures that you will treasure over a life time.

Look over some these options:

- Does your church have a staff photographer?
- Do you have a relative or friend that does photography as a hobby or side job?
- How about a neighbor or family member?
- Do you live near a college campus?  Check out the availability of a photographer that works directly for the school or perhaps the school's newspaper.

Make sure you ask to see the person's most recent photography projects.  While you want to cut the cost of your wedding photography budget, you certainly want to ensure that your pictures are of great quality.  Don't be afraid to ask for pictures to be taken of you and your fiance' months before the wedding.  Just because a person is willing and perhaps has the latest in camera technology does not mean that they are qualified to serve as your official photographer.

What about multiple photographers?  I would suggest no more than two official photographers, however.  You want to ensure that your wedding is held to the highest level of order.  This is your day and you want nothing less that the best on your wedding day!

Taking Pictures During The Engagement Period

Bridal pictures are very special.  There you are with your perfect hairdo, well chosen wedding dress, classic jewels, flawless makeup and all the wedding day glow of the blushing bride!  Stop!  Should you take pictures only on your wedding day?  Of course not.  


As you and your fiance' approach the big day, take the time to visit some of your favorite date places, perhaps the beach, a picturesque park, an outdoor affair, a local museum or any other favorite locale, take a friend or two along to photograph the two of you as you radiate in the days before your big day.  These photos can become part of a photo memory book that is sure to add to your collection of wedding photographs. 


You can also use these special pictures to display or show at your reception or use them to create souvenirs for your guest. Be creative and don't forget to smile.  It's your big day!  Dahling relax and enjoy!

Budget Wedding Photography

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

One area that you can cut your wedding cost is photography. Ask family and friends to use their own cameras to photograph your wedding and reception. 

Here is an idea that will get you all of the pictures you want without breaking the bank.  After you have decided on your wedding venue, you may want to have at least two photographers and one videographer.    Before the wedding ceremony begins, one photographer can be placed with the groom and one with the bride to take wedding preparation shoots. During the ceremony one photographer can be stationed at the back of the wedding and the second one can be stationed near the front of the wedding. 

Once the wedding and reception have concluded, request your photographers to give CDs to the bride and groom so that the couple can post their own pictures on-line and also print photos for a wedding album. This should be done as soon as you return from your honeymoon. It is recommended that your use of the on-line photo services, (for example: Walgreens) to upload wedding pictures for online sharing, print favorites and make your own fabulous photo album. Use popular wedding magazines and books to select wedding shots that you want your photographers to take. Keep a list of the shoot that you want taken at the wedding and reception. Review your photo shooting list with your photographers at least a week before the wedding.

You may also want to place one-time-shoot cameras in the seats of your guest and collect the cameras after the reception. Develop these candid shoots and they can be included in your wedding album.
