“A family member is an avid photo-enthusiast and offered to take our images”. “My uncle Bill just got a new camera and it takes great pictures”. ”My friend’s son shoots a lot for his school, he will photograph our wedding for free”.
We’ve heard these things before. While friends and family members certainly have the very best intentions, and are offering their services very cheap or even for free, this may not be you best choice.
Even though weddings are happy and joyous events, they are extremely fast paced and have very strict timelines. Someone who is not used to working in an environments like this, can very easily get overwhelmed. More importantly, photography is a very complex artform. It involves profound knowledge of technical details, years of training your mind and eyes to find the right angles, frames and situations. CielBleu covers your wedding with two professionals, who know their business inside out. We know how to work around difficult lighting situations, how to use flattering camera angles and how to be ready for the unexpected.
Professional wedding photographers use the latest digital technology, carry backup units of every major piece of equipment, and are very skilled in all digital post-production procedures. Although your friend’s and family member’s offers seem tempting – you should not take the risk of getting mediocre images (or even worse – no images) from your wedding.
Think about it: If you would go skydiving, would you rather do it with an experienced professional, or someone that once read a book about it
