What Wedding Photography Packages Are Best?
Most people these days want wedding photography that includes digital copies of all of the photos. Naturally you want memories that are captured of the whole day. So why are there so many variations of wedding photography packages?
Perhaps the best sort are a-la-carte style wedding photography packages. This way you can choose exactly what you want without spending money on products you don’t want.
So what is important to get in a wedding photography package? Although digital copies of photos are great because you get all the photos of the day, do you think you will print them out? More importantly do you think you will print your precious wedding photos at a professional photography lab? Most likely not. So why is this important? The printing quality is very important. It determines how long the photos will last (many, many years, much longer than your standard officeworks photos), the colour of the photos and sometimes even the resolution. Some clients have asked me why their photos look different from computer to print. That is because they printed using the cheap companies. The colour and resolution as well as the quality of photo is much higher using a professional photography lab and will last a lot longer. In the long run it is best to print with the quality labs than not.
In my opinion, the number one MUST HAVE product for your wedding photography is an album. You might spend between $500-$5000 on top of the wedding photography but it is well worth it! This is something you are going to keep and have for generations to come. One day you will be showing your grandchildren and reminiscing about your perfect day. To do that you need a physical product and once again you need a quality product. Your wedding photos are not just photos they are heirlooms!
My second MUST HAVE product is a canvas. It could be a collage of a few photos from your wedding or it could be a single photo. Whatever you decide, you want something you can be proud of and show off to friends.
So to summarise, physical products are always best to buy or have in a wedding photography package. It will reduce the workload for you (and let’s face it, most of us don’t even print out our photos until a couple of years down the track) and you will have a permanent memory of your one special day that can be passed down to generations. Remember that memories fade….but photographs last a lifetime!
