7 Essential Services You Must Look For When Hiring Wedding Photographers

When hiring a wedding photographer, you need to choose someone who offers a complete service even if you are not going to avail all of them for your wedding. Why? You will never know if the wedding package you will avail is enough until you’ll see the inclusions. Be reminded that some photography studios have set packages that may include and exclude other services, and those exclusions may be under a separate category or as miscellaneous service.

A wedding package you will typically see from a professional photographer may be into separate packages. A full offering of services usually includes those that are in the miscellaneous services and this category may be called “special wedding package” or something similar to that effect.

Now bear in mind that special wedding packages are usually expensive than those that only include digital photography and video coverage. Of course, the more services included, the higher the price. The only question here is if you’re going to avail the special package or resort to the typical wedding package. It’s really up to you to decide, but you must look for these other services just in case you change your mind and want to have a complete package for this special event.

(1) Digital photography

As a general practice among professional photographers, the digital age has brought them to new heights and edge in the technological realm. It is common for photographers of our time to use digital gadgets aside from digital cameras. They are using computer software and hardware for faster and better resolutions compared to the film-type cameras of yesteryears. This service may include the pre-wedding photo shoot, during the day itself and after the wedding.

(2) Digital video coverage

For capturing the moment while it’s happening, pros use digital video cameras to provide lasting memories complete with audio. Editing is also done digitally via computer with the use of specific software to edit and add music.

(3) On-spot video editing

This is one of the many add-on services that many pros offer today. It involves video coverage and editing on the same day of the wedding and the edited video is shown during the reception. This is a great way to share and see the ceremony altogether during the reception so everybody can enjoy it not just the couple and their families.

(4) Projector and wide screen service

This is common nowadays particularly during weddings. Memoirs, flashbacks of the couple’s love story, dedications and well-wishes from family and friends, and the digital photo slide presentation at the hotel/dressing room and church may be shown during the reception. The couple or their families can arrange the service and slides, and give them to the photographer on the day of the wedding for presentation.

(5) Additional photographer/videographer

This is essential if you are planning to have a location wedding and if you have hundreds of guests. Taking more pictures and videos than normal would definitely need more pros on the floor to capture all the special moments. It’s best to have additional photographer and videographer on hand if you are planning for this type of wedding.

(6) Albums and framed blown-up photo/s [including Guest book, a set of magnetic wedding photo album/s, 2 mini albums for parents]

These services are actually standard for wedding packages. But some couples who do not have enough budget may omit these add-ons. However, it is quite ideal at least to have the couple’s album and the guest book as part of their memoir.

(7) Add-on services [miscellaneous]

Add-ons are usually miscellaneous services that couples may or may not want to include in their wedding package. These are usually not included in the standard packages offered by professional photographers, but are there just in case customers want to add more.

Add-ons may include tarpaulin, additional photographer/videographer on top of the scheduled professionals, additional assistants particularly for location or out-of-town weddings, additional wide screen and audiovisual services.

Choosing the right photographer is the key to getting all the services that you want. If you have the budget for it, it’s best to avail the complete package inclusive of select add-ons to capture all the memories of your special day. A budget package with select services may also be chosen especially if you are tight on your budget. You can always talk to the photographer and ask for advice so you can come up with an ideal price.
