Ashlie and Elmo Wedding Highlight Photos

Ashlie and Elmo enjoyed a marvelous wedding day on May 30th. Their day started at their family farm and then migrated to the Hilton Doubletree Meadowwlands for their wedding reception. A short burst of rain seemed perfectly timed to not interfere with any of the day’s events. Ashlie was stunning in her flowing dress. But Elmo was no slouch in his gorgeous cream-color tuxedo! Family and friends showered Ashlie and Elmo with a blizzard of confetti as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife. It was a perfect moment in one very fine wedding day. You can see that for yourself in the highlight photos below!

Bridal Show Wedding Shopping Success! The right, the wrong and the upside-down of bridal show shopping.

Bridal Show Shopping - You're Enaaged! Now What? - Part 12 of 30

Since some of your friends are probably getting engaged too, you may have attended a bridal show even before you got engaged. If so, you know the deal: A bridal show is an overwhelming rush of everything you need and don’t need for your wedding. Many local vendors are gathered together for your convenience. But stay alert: Bridal Shows are good sources of discounts–when they are not a great source of confusion!

Even a moderate-sized bridal show will present you with an amazing amount of information. The problem is that it quickly drives most people into overload—“they all seem the same”.  To get the most out of a bridal show, you have to go with a specific goal and purpose “to find a caterer”, “to meet people from dress shops to see who I like”, “to see different kinds of photography so I know what I want” and so forth. Just walking in and trying to see it all is a trap. You may see it all. But it all comes in an avalanche and you will be quickly snowed under.

When you go to the show, know your wedding date. If you are seriously shopping for wedding services, every vendor you talk with will want to start with your wedding date and work from there. Going to a show without a set date is a waste of your time and theirs.

Another point to realize is that bridal shows are a safe haven for wedding shopping. The vendors that commit to do these shows are usually the most established and experienced wedding vendors in the region. Most of them have storefronts and have been in business many years. The fact that they have been around the wedding business for a long time is a solid indicator of their reliability and professionalism–pretty important qualities in a wedding vendor!

At your next bridal show, go with a set wedding date, narrow your focus and have clear goals for what you want to get done at the show. Going to the show with the idea of  “collecting information” rarely accomplishes anything. It’s better to go with an explicit purpose in mind and checks or credit cards in hand. Sure, look everything over. But stick to your goals. And when you meet a vendor that satisfies all your criteria, go ahead and make a commitment to them. Leaving the final steps until later with follow-up calls and follow-up meetings adds confusion, wastes the start you made at the show, and drags out the process of finding good services that you need for your wedding. If you see something that works for you, buy it at the show and check it off your list. Mission accomplished!

Wedding Photography Save Me! Photography is your wedding day parachute. Make sure it opens when you need it!

Your Wedding Photography Parachute

Expenses are piling up and you’ve already spent more than you want to. But keep this important fact in mind: Low-budget wedding photography is about as risky a decision as you will ever make. It’s extremely chancy to skimp on something that you want to enjoy for the rest of your life!  It’s like the old joke about negotiating a discount with someone to pack your parachute and then going skydiving–the money you saved won’t mean a thing if that chute doesn’t open!

Well, what should my photography cost? The Knot does an annual survey of brides to find out what they paid for “average” wedding photography. The latest survey results (2014) as published in USA Today show that average wedding photography costs $2,440. If you want above-average photography with amenities such as two photographers, more than 8 hours of coverage and/or a wedding album, then you should expect to pay more than that.

The good news is that paying more for great photography is actually cheap wedding day insurance. Guard your photography budget like a skydiver checking her chute before getting into the plane. Be certain that your parachute will get you safely on the ground. It is far better to spend more that you had planned than to look at those pictures afterward and wish you had spent more. They can never be done over again–there are no upgrades next year. Knowing that as you look at pictures you don’t like is the very definition of heartbreak. At that moment, the $1,000 you saved won’t be worth ten cents.

Who Will You Be With On Your Wedding Day?  Who will you spend the most time with on your wedding day?  The answer might surprise you.

Your Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer is Your Constant Wedding Day Companion

Going in to your wedding day, with the possible exception of your maid of honor, the person you will spend the most time with on your wedding day is none other than….(wait for it)….your photographer! In these days when candid story-telling is the most popular form of wedding photography, your photographers might start by meeting you at your hair salon and end by joining in your circle of friends at your last dance. In order to tell your story, they can never leave your side!

The point is that it is important to actually know the person who will show up at your door. Be sure you have a  chance to get to know them before your wedding.  This is one reason that Pittsburgh’s Most Trusted Wedding Photographer, Ovation Images, always encourages couples to do an engagement session with us.

Wedding pictures that you love are personal.  How could it be otherwise?  Be certain that  you get a photographer that you WANT to have around all day long. They need to be sensitive enough to stay in the background at the right times, and diplomatic enough to make friends with your guests, while taking charge during your hectic family pictures. They need to know you well enough to know that what you’re going to want goes WAY beyond what you actually asked for. Your photographer will be your constant companion on your big day.  So be sure to pick the right person to spend your wedding day with!

Cheap Wedding Photography Is Expensive. Do you know why high-quality professional wedding photography costs more? Because it’s worth it! Thousands of couples who got married before you decided they were willing to pay more to ensure better results. And it turns out, they were right!

Why is that true? It’s true because you end up looking at your wedding pictures hundreds if not thousands of times–for many years afterward! Anything you don’t like or that you think may be missing will grind on your mind until you don’t want to look at your wedding pictures again.

Bottom line? Wedding photography is not like chair covers–or even catering! If you decide that don’t like the chair covers–no problem, because you never have to look at them again. If you don’t like the food that your caterer serves at your wedding, well you never have to taste it again. But those wedding pictures stay with you day after day, year after year–forever!

Many professional wedding planners will tell you that wedding photography is not actually a wedding “expense”. They regard it a a lifetime investment, and they often suggest you budget for your photography like an investment that you expect to pay off for years to come.

Sure you have a budget. But don’t use it like a club to scare away all the higher-quality, most-experienced wedding photographers. Be gentle and flexible when you meet with them and you will most likely be met with the same in return.

Good photographers love their clients and their work. In fact, that love is what makes their photography good! When you are choosing a photographer, focus on finding the love–and be prepared to adjust your budget. Wouldn’t you rather spend more than you had planned now to avoid that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach later EVERY TIME that you look through your wedding pictures? “Later” is too late to change it–and too late to figure out that you under-budgeted your wedding photography.

“Cake, dear?” by OvationImages.com

Final Word: Invest Your Time Too! — Schedule Your Day Wisely. Your wedding photography will be better the more time you allocate to it. Likewise, it will be worse the less time you allocate to it. If you are not seeing each other before your ceremony, then you need at least 2 hours in between your ceremony and reception. No ifs, ands or “but our guests are waiting!” If they love you, they will be glad to wait–they know that this time is the only time you have to create pictures that you will share with your children’s children!  It starts to sound pretty worthwhile when you put it like that, huh? After you have made the money decision, be certain you have also allowed more than adequate time for your photography.
