Why you need to hire a professional for your wedding, a few words of advice for Brides.
I remember when my wife and I were in the process of buying our first home how we were advised to bring an attorney, a professional, to the closing. To bring to a very important day the experience of a person who had dedicated their lives to provide sound counsel in the very tricky environment of contract signing. So we did hire an attorney, a professional and he not only read the contract before the closing but also was present at the singing and he was looking out for us. It was very reassuring to have someone on our side while we signed papers that would put us in debt for a great part of our lives.
Don’t DIY! Don’t bring Uncle Bob!
It would seem like an obvious thing to hire a professional for your wedding, to cover one of the most important events in one’s life, but many don’t take this route. A wedding which hopefully will be a once in a lifetime event.
But many feel that they are able to get away either doing it themselves [diy] or going with a non professional such as Uncle Bob who is good with his Canon Sure Shot 70 And of course there will be plenty of guests with their smart phones clicking away!
Going with someone that has no interest in maintaining a level of professionalism with his work, someone that is flying by the seat of their pants and not bringing in quality, integrity and proven results to the job at hand seems very, very foolish for such an important day.
Here are a few of the reasons that I feel need to be address when hiring a person that will be working in making the day of your wedding a very memorable, joyous and beautiful occasion. Even though I’m a photographer the reasons I will describe can be applied to many other areas of the special occasion which should be done by a wedding professional, such as event coordinator, music, decorations, flowers, catering and venue. So in the weeks to come I will be dealing with experience, contracts, equipment, insurance, artistic expression, and focus on the job.
This week I will start with reason number one on why you need to hire a professional for your wedding:
: the process of doing and seeing things and of having things happen to you
: skill or knowledge that you get by doing something
Brides this day is about you and making you look great. That is why you need to hire a professional for your wedding with sufficient experience to make your event the most memorable possible.
