Hint: In New Jersey, Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
It’s no secret. At the end of the day, the only tangible things that you’ll have to remember your wedding by are those bands wrapped around your fingers and your wedding photos.
And because I’m guessing you want to remember it well, you’re probably searching for the best NJ wedding photographer to capture it all.
-But with so many styles ranging from light and airy to dark and moody…
-Prices that are all over the map….
-And over 550 New Jersey wedding photographers (according to The Knot)…
It’s no wonder you’re a little confused about how to sift through the options.
Add in the fact that you’ve never done this before, and it’s not surprising that you’re a little nervous about your decision.
Well, allow me to shed some light on your most common wedding photography concerns and provide you with one easy fix.
Common Concern #1: Every photographer you speak with is already booked for your wedding day:
Yes, you know that it’s important to book your preferred vendors early. But now that you’ve picked your date and secured your venue, you’re finding out that some of the photographers you love are already booked.
The real problem isn’t that they’re booked. It’s that you’re considering photographers who are parties of one. Yep, that’s right – they are the chief cook and bottle washer for their business. So, when they’re booked, you’re out of luck.
Common Concern #2: You want to hire two photographers so nothing gets missed – but you worry that the pictures won’t look consistent.
You’re about to spend months planning out every last detail of your wedding day. So, of course, you want someone to capture the big moments while someone else captures the small details.
But I’m guessing you want those “someones” to be experienced New Jersey wedding photographers. And the fact that the photographers you’ve been considering have all mentioned that they’ll find “someone” must be pretty nerve-wracking.
Well, I hate to break it to ya, but you’re right to be concerned. Unless they have a dedicated second photographer or a small team who supports them, they’re likely looking on a random photography Facebook group (or worse, CraigsList!) to find someone to capture your precious memories. Yikes.
Common Concern #3: The photographers don’t seem to have a plan for if they get sick.
Given the state of the world right now, it’s only natural that you’re worried about your photographer (or any other wedding vendor for that matter) getting sick. And considering that with your wedding day, there are no do-overs, you’re absolutely right to worry! You shouldn’t take a chance on those memories getting missed.
Can I share a hard truth? The fact is, not only should you be worried about them getting sick, but you should also be asking them what they are doing to ensure that you and your guests will be kept safe if they happen to fall ill. But that’s a whole other subject you can read about here.
