Tyler Boye Photography tells you how.
hello and welcome to tyler boy photography notes from the lightbox i'm stephanie boy today i wanted to talk to you about absolute non-negotiables in your wedding photography package I am married to a photographer so photographs are extremely important to me but I would say there's only two things you walk away from your wedding with one spouse and to your pictures so arguably it is one of the most important things that you should consider you've decided what your budget is you're going to start to look into photography studios and you're going to see that there are so many different studios that offer tons of bells and whistles for really extremely cheap prices and then there's going to be others that are more expensive just remember when you see all those albums and everything included for a really cheap price the truth is you usually get what you pay for here's what i recommend i recommend you get the best photographer that you can for your budget because who needs all of those inclusions if you have terrible pictures so my number one non-negotiable would be get a great photographer number two non-negotiable would be the DVD this is essential for anything that you want to do if you have a very limited budget make sure you get the DVD because this is ownership of all of the pictures at our studio we do 300 DPI 8 x 10 images will give them to hire if you want them higher resolution if you want them but this gives you the freedom to create albums if you want to make prints to do whatever you want to do with them and most studios should give that to you I have heard of some holding on to images but it's not unreasonable to expect that you would get your DVD of images six weeks after your gallery has been posted which should be somewhere around two to three months after your wedding and the number three non-negotiable would be the right number of hours I always recommend to brides of groups somewhere between eight and nine hours eight hours will give you good coverage from getting ready preparation pictures through cake cutting nine hours if you love pictures and you really want to give us some extra time I think nine hours is a nice time frame the one thing you do want to consider in there is drive time if you have drive time or a long time in between ceremony and reception you might need between nine and ten hours of coverage if you have an extremely long day maybe of something coming at the end of the wedding reception who trucks something like that you might want to have ten hours or more but all of those things you'll pretty much know but if you a solid wedding should be about eight to nine hours so these are my non-negotiables a great photographer the DVD and the right amount of time so if there's any money left over in the budget my next recommendation will be the engagement shoot because this is a great opportunity for you to work with the photographer and see what kind of important your spouse have with them as well as be able to look at your gallery more than likely you'll have some really beautiful pictures and then the wedding day pictures will be like icing on the cake but looking at the pictures you can really look find out how you like to see yourself what angles are good what angles aren't so good it's a nice dry run for the wedding day the other thing I might recommend is a photo booth it's just a great way to capture everyone from your wedding you invited them because they're important to you and it photo booth really brings out their silliness their funniness they're really kind of organic authentic personality thanks again for watching notes from the light box please Facebook us or email us with any questions or comments that you might have if you have a question that you want us to address we'd love to hear from you
