     Picture Perfect

There are few things that can cement a memory as solidly as a picture can. Smells are related feelings... maybe in another article we can investigate how to package those up for a future memory. Today we're discussing visual memories and your wedding day is certainly a memory you want to keep close. Although professional photographers vary in price, skill and availability, here’s a general estimate of what you can expect:

Price: It seems like the world is teeming with amateur photographers with nice cameras nowadays, and you can conceivably find someone who will take pictures for a minimal price, even for free. However, this is probably not advisable. Decent photographers range anywhere from a couple hundred to a couple thousand dollars, depending on where you live and who you pick. A couple words of warning when picking a photographer:

-Photographers don't often post prices on their website. You’ll have to contact them directly.

-Some quotes do not include the “sitting fee”—the fee for taking up the photographer’s time, and it can be surprisingly expensive and is charged even if you don't like any of the pictures.

-Some photographers offer touch-ups for any photos they take. If this is something that is important to you, make sure you find someone experienced in that field. If you don’t want altered photos, be sure to check and let your photographer know.

-Most photographers allow you to own the rights to your pictures. However, a few of them retain the rights and you are essentially buying the right to have a copy of the pictures. You don’t actually own them. Beware! If you want to have access to your pictures years down the road, BE SURE YOU OWN THE RIGHTS TO THE UNTOUCHED ORIGINALS.

Packages: Every photographer does something different. Some of them include engagement pictures, wedding day photos, reception photos, etc. while others only cover part of the time. Just make sure you know what you’re getting up front.

   Why do I need a professional decorator?

Experienced decorators are professionals in the details that provide for a comfortable atmosphere. They help ensure there will be enough tables and chairs without crowding. They understand crowd control; from the warm welcome at the correct entry door to making sure they never have the feeling of going up the down staircase.
In addition to relieving you of stress and labor before the event, a decorator will become your best friend after the event. A professional decorator will bring in an experienced crew that can have your decorations removed in 30 minutes to an hour. This allows you to concentrate on other aspects of clearing the building. You will be tired. You will appreciate the service.
