Ladies, we all know that planning a wedding can be overwhelming. You may have planned a birthday party for your family. Maybe a wedding shower. Maybe a baby shower. They are nothing like planning a wedding.
Choosing the professionals to handle your grand affair can be overwhelming as well. Imagine what it would be like to choose a venue, then find out the planner you trusted has left to go elsewhere? Imagine what it would be like to choose your photographer based on price and find out they did not have much experience with those precious images that you value?
When choosing your professionals, we all know that every bride chooses based on their own personal priorities. If photos are top priority, then choose wisely on the artwork over the fees. If the venue is number one, choose the same way. I personally enjoy a bride who can make decisions quickly. Many times, our best clients choose us at the personal consultation. She doesn’t have to meet a multitude of photographers to “know”. That may be a sign of indecisiveness.
The other thing is choosing based solely on price. If you do that you can ALWAYS find the “Walmart” of wedding photography. I’m not against Walmart, but if your wedding is that important to you, consider your decision based on price. There are ways to negotiate when finding the artwork you love. When you feel you have found the style you desire, then you can decide how to approach the next step.
Same with choosing a DJ. The frat house DJ knows how to party and will probably drink all night with you. Or you can choose a great DJ / Emcee package from people like Sunny Moon, Mike West, or Jason Carpenter.
Indianapolis Woman magazine has presented this month their bridal guide for brides with insights and help. If you know Mary Weiss, the Publisher of this fine magazine, you know that her character is to give the bride the best options to have a great event.
At Bello Romance Photography we endeavor to give our brides the best work to capture the romance of their wedding. Although we have been photographing weddings for many years (30 +), we also do exceptional work with portraits, models and their portfolios, seniors, families, children and babies, corporate and other events.
Choose wisely, dear brides. This is a once in a lifetime story. Maybe you feel like Cinderella at the ball. This is YOUR fairytale. YOUR dream. Make the most of it by great decisions. Great decisions lower the stress levels. This is supposed to be fun.
