Wedding Photography, A Warning to Prospective York Brides

York wedding photographerThere was a recent social interest printout which was done in the newspapers. What was so interesting about the write-up was the fact that a headline of “frustrated couple” was used. Within the article was a brief summary of the couple’s worst nightmare which was not receiving their wedding photographs.

Going by the above, it is quite natural that the couple would give way to anger and make use of the local news to inform other prospective couples about the ugly side of picking the wrong wedding photographer. How would you feel after making the necessary arrangements for your wedding day and being content with the fact that you have someone handpicked to help in immortalizing those memories on film around only for the wedding pictures to not be sent at the end of the day? All the memories of your wedding that you hoped would be captured are now nowhere to be found and there is no ready means of replacing them.

Wedding photographers are not hired just for formality sake.

Every couple knows that the chances of replicating the exact moment and feeling of a wedding day is close to impossible if not impossible as money, timing and the order of events will never follow each other the same way they did the first time around. This is why the memories are always regarded as irreplaceable. Through the images, a bride and groom are able to go back to the moments leading up to their final union as a legally wedded couple.

From the newspaper, it was denoted that the bride had actually paid the wedding photographer upfront fees yet to receive the picture, she was being faced with resistance not in the form of the photographer refusing but in the form that the wedding photographer was nowhere to be found. Unfortunately, you may find that this incident is not an isolated one and about 1 in 50 couples experience this. There is no doubting the fact that the bride is angered not only about the money lost but also about the priceless images she has no hope of recovering.
