Morning Gorgeous One! Before today’s post (A Gorgeous Multicultural Wedding By Bright Girl Photography) can I just say THANK YOU for reading the blog. I’m chuffed that you’re here.
It all started when I reached out to Eileen from bright girl about this particular wedding. Of course, she agreed to me featuring the wedding. However, I wanted to reach out to the couple for more details on their day. So I sent Jessie a facebook message and didn’t hear anything from her for a long time. Yeah, you’d think people are ignoring you on Facebook but if you’re not friends, Facebook will not bother to show messages until you follow that particular person.
Therefore, when Jessie got in touch I was delighted (no actually ecstatic). Jessie and Bonga’s multicultural wedding took place way back in 2012. The main reason I’m featuring them is because they chose well when it comes to photography. Look at how gorgeous their images turned out. They look as though they were captured only yesterday. I’ve received so many weddings I could not feature because the photos weren’t clear enough. It breaks my heart to see so many brides spent so much money on their weddings and not invest on a good photographer.
Believe me, in photography you get what you pay for. Photography isn’t easy. To capture amazing photos you need skill not just the latest camera with gazillion megapixels.
So be careful to choose your photographer well. Choose two or three of your favourites. Research their past work. Schedule an interview, ask questions about their approach, extra hours, if they have a grace time period, when you’ll receive your images, if they have an instalment payment plan, when and how to pay the deposit and the balance. You should also have an engagement shoot if possible. This will give you an indication whether or not your photographer is a perfect fit for you. Good luck!
Wedding Advice From Jessie
When you start to plan your wedding decide on the 2 or 3 things that are the most important to you and ensure you are spending the most money on your priorities. We focused on the photography and food and gave up on having a videographer.
Give your cell phone to someone else to answer the day of the wedding. The bride should be taking a bath and relaxing.
Make sure you thank your wedding party for being a part of your big day.
Ensure your photographer has a list of the family photos you want. You don’t want to leave anyone out or hurt anyone’s feelings.
Just know that everything will not go as planned on your day. It hailed as I walked down the aisle!Shuu! What a gorgeous Multicultural Wedding. Click here for more weddings
