It can save you a lot of money somewhere along the way.
What most brides don’t really realize all that much is the fact that crowdsourcing the photos can be a pretty fun way to get a collated album of photos that their guests during the wedding can contribute. This should in no way replace the works or the photos that a professional wedding photographer such as Delicious Photography will be able to shoot. You are still going to need one at some point or so and that is what you need to try to remember all the time as much as you possibly can. Instagram, Facebook, and other social media platforms will turn out to be the perfect means for you to pull something like that off.
Create a Facebook page dedicated to your wedding that guests can upload photos on.
Create some sort of handle or even a hashtag on Instagram that you can have your guests play around with. This is best shared during a wedding reception party where everyone is having fun. The advent of mobile phones has totally changed the photography game and it is all for the better. You just need to know how to properly plan out a crowdsourcing means or hashtag in order for you to help things along. Guide your guests accordingly so that there aren’t any confusions or anything like that going on somewhere along the way. There are so many things that you can do if you want to pull something like this off. You just need to make sure that you have your thinking hat on all of the time.
Make sure that you connect with friends who just recently married so that you can ask for their help.
It will surprise you and totally blow you out of the water how well connected your friends can turn out to be. But then again, you will never really know what is in it for you until you actually ask them for it. Talk to your friends, particularly to those who have had a brush with the wedding industry and with the Lancashire wedding photography industry in particular. If you have professional photographer friends, then they might have a few great recommendations that they can make for you.
Keep your eyes and your mind open.
Be patient with all of the referrals and recommendations that they happen to give out to you at the end of the day. People won’t be suggesting options to you until they actually know that you are looking so make it a point to let them know that you are putting an eye out there for a great photographer that you can potentially book for the wedding that you are planning. Timing is key and so is the patience to go through all of the options that you have on the table so try to take note of that as much as possible.
There is no shame in customizing your Lancashire wedding photography package and haggling a little bit on the rates of the photographer. Work with your photographer about this because he will always be open to what you have to say. You are the client, after all and what you say matters at the end of the day.
