An Expert Guide to At-Home Wedding Photos
Hire a Professional Photographer
First thingâ€™s first, itâ€™s crucial to determine who will actually be responsible for capturing your meaningful day. According to photographer Jenny Soi, she absolutely loves the concept of having an intimate at-home celebration. But, the idea of a couple doing their own photos is gasp-worthy. â€śI would deeply urge couples to consider how they want to feel when getting married at homeâ€”on cloud nine with zero worries or busy multitasking,â€ť she says.
An at-home wedding certainly doesnâ€™t mean you have to do everything on your own or solely rely on your loved ones to help out. You can still bring vendors into the mix, and a great photographer may be one of the most important to add to your list. â€śPhotography to me is the most important service on your wedding day. I would always advise couples to invest in it, even if you are just doing a small elopement at your home,â€ť adds Wendy Kay, owner and creative director of Tiny Weddings Dallas and Birds of a Feather Events.
As you make this decision, youâ€™ll definitely want to put plenty of thought into how much stress you want to put on you and your partner on your wedding day. Adding the expense of bringing in a professional photographer will certainly make the day more memorable as youâ€™ll be able to truly celebrate in the moment.
