Wedding planning can be an overwhelming process, especially when it comes to choosing a wedding photographer. It’s easy to fall into the trap of believing common myths that could potentially ruin your big day. Here are 5 common wedding photography myths debunked.

All Photographers are the same

Our survey says… UH UH. Contrary to popular belief, not all photographers are the same. Every photographer has a unique style and approach. Not only in how they shoot and edit but also in how they communicate pre/post wedding. This is why it’s crucial to do your research and find a photographer whose style resonates with you.

More photos mean better coverage

You might think that the more photos you have, the better. However, quality over quantity ensures memorable moments are captured. I’ve never had a couple complain that they didn’t get enough photos. What’s important is that each photo tells a story, captures a special moment, and can help you relive your wedding day over and over again.

Posed photos are the beautiful ones

I couldn’t disagree more. While posed photos can be beautiful, candid moments capture the true essence of your day better than any set up photo ever could. The unscripted laughter, tears, and joy that candid photos capture often end up being the most treasured.

Friend/Family can do the same job

It might be tempting to save money by asking a friend or family member to take your wedding photos. But are they a professional wedding photographer? It’s not just about being able to take a good photo. So much of good wedding photography is anticipating moments and being in the right spot to capture them. This comes with experience shooting weddings. It’s a skill that professionals have honed over many years and many weddings.

Expensive means better quality

This is perhaps one of the most common myths. While it’s true that you often get what you pay for, there are professional photographers to suit all budgets. Price doesn’t always reflect the photographer’s skill or fit for your style. It’s more important to find a photographer whose style you love, who you feel comfortable with, and who understands your vision for your wedding day.
