Wedding Photography for Thriftspenders

These days getting married really costs a lot of money. It would also cost much to rent a gown and a tux and it is a bit absurd to have the bride rent the gown she wears on her special day. There are different ways to save on your wedding day. You can limit the number of guests you invite but that would be no fun! Eloping and getting married via the power of the judge won’t make your families happy. Wedding photography takes almost 10 percent of the wedding budget so it would be practical to just find ways to save on this aspect. For couples who don’t know which aspect of the wedding they must save on they tend to opt for budget wedding photography. Following are the different ways on how you can save on wedding photography.

Have an amateur shoot your wedding. This is the best budget wedding photography. If you have a friend or friends of friends who are photography hobbyists you could also ask them to cover your wedding. You can even get it for free. Tell your friends that this could be their wedding present to you. Doing this for you would make them feel thrilled and honored. You only need to pay for the selected pictures. You’re given the right to choose what you want in your wedding album. You can also ask your friends to bring their own camera and just compile all the pictures they’ve taken. This will not only be free but will also give you so many perspectives of your wedding.

If you have even a bit of money to spare you can try comparing prices of up and coming photographers in your area. You can also surf online for this or look at their websites. You can also gather phone numbers from the phone book and start calling local photographers to get their packages and rates. An album and a set of important events of the wedding are probably included in their basic packages. As compared to hiring a well known photographer this is a lot cheaper.

A professional photographer on your wedding isn’t really what’s important on that special day. What’s important is that you enjoy and share the day with friends and family who have helped you as individuals and as a couple. Remember to just have fun and enjoy each other on your special day!
