Why you shouldn’t choose the cheapest wedding photographer for your wedding

Feb 13, 2018

For the best wedding and engagement photography, cotact Aris Affairs in PrescottSo your sister got married last year and they had a family member take their pictures because he only charged them $200. Unfortunately, there wasn’t  a single picture of the wedding that doesn’t look like just a snapshot. She can’t even look at even one of the most special days in her life without regret of not having captured it with professional photography. Aris Affairs Photography, your professional wedding photographer in Prescott, understands that your wedding day is a once in a lifetime affair and you want everything to be perfect, including your photographs.

One of the biggest mistake a bride can make is not doing their research when looking for the right wedding photographer. So many brides try to save a few dollars by hiring friends, or family to take their wedding photos. Many brides have tried it and been disappointed. Think of a professional wedding photography as an investment in your future joy. The cost to have a professional wedding photographer is really one of your lesser expenses (it will cost a lot less than the food you serve at your wedding), but it will pay off in great dividends, as you enjoy the memories for the rest of your life.

Professional photographers pride themselves on their equipment and generally they have the most reliable gear available and they are familiar with their equipment. Hobbyist or weekend photographers who dabble in wedding photography on the side can’t justify the cost of professional equipment, reliable backup, and proper business insurance. And then consider experience – take enough photos and anyone can show you a few good images, but can they do that day in and day out? Do they have the experience to deliver high quality images on a consistent basis? Probably not, or else – they would be running a real business. And one last point, when you hire a Professional Photographer, they are indeed putting their reputation and their livelihood on the line. You have trust, you have references, and you have a proven track record.

With wedding photography in Prescott and elsewhere, you generally get what you pay for. The less you spend, the more disappointment you risk. A friend or family member who happens to be a photography hobbyist will have much different results than a dedicated wedding professional. Ask yourself: ‘Am I willing to look at my wedding photos for the rest of my life and feel let down?’ Let Aris Affairs make your wedding pictures something you will cherish for a lifetime. We love turning Life into Art. Just call us at 928-642-4049 and let’s discuss how to take the worry out of your wedding photography.
