Does your photographer offer this service?
Weddings are a ton of work! If you’re in the middle of planning one, you already know this. That’s why there are wedding vendors, ready and willing to perform specific services for your wedding day.
One of the most important wedding vendor you’ll hire is your wedding photographer. Obviously, this person is going to offer the service of taking photos on your wedding day. It’s important their style aligns with yours, but it’s also important they offer services beyond just taking photos.
If you’ve ever tried to print photos, it’s just not super easy. There are a bazillion photo printing websites, and often their user interface for uploading and ordering photos is slow and frustrating. This is where your photographer comes in. Most all photographers will give you the digital copies of your images, but you need to make sure you’re hiring a photographer that will continue to work for/with you after the wedding and offers the service of prints.
Taking it a step further, you might find that there are so many photos that you love from your wedding day, and printing them each individually becomes impractical. This is where a wedding album comes in. But again, doing this yourself via a photo printing website is difficult and extremely time consuming. So before you hire a photographer, make sure they offer the service of album designing and printing. Even if you don’t include an album in your photo package initially, it’s still important that you have that option after the wedding is over.
Most vendors end their relationship with you once your wedding day has ended, but you will need to continue working with your photographer. You should never have to do the work for your photos … that’s your photographer’s job! That’s why you’ve hired a professional, so make sure they offer services beyond simply taking the photos.
