You probably already have an idea of how wedding photography works, what you expect to spend on wedding photographers and how the whole experience will unfold. But allow us to let you in on a little industry secret: Certain preconceived notions about wedding photography are just plain fiction!  Check out some of these common wedding photography myths.

1. Its better to save a buck

2. Photographers will be in the way

We are experts at capturing every perfect moment while simultaneously keeping a super low profile. Basically, we’re wedding ninjas. Most of the time you’ll probably forget they’re even there!

3. Everything needs to look perfect

They know all the tricks and angles to make you and your guests look your very best. Embrace the freedom. Focus on enjoying the moment and leave the rest to your photographers.

4. Pro photographers are unnecessary

Oof. With the popularity of DIY weddings (which can be absolutely fabulous, by the way), this myth is becoming a bit more widespread. Here’s the thing: Wedding photos are one of the big things you really want to get right on your special day. Believe it or not, there will come a time when the memories from your wedding start to fade. Maybe you can’t remember exactly how the centerpieces looked, or which grandparent stole the show on the dancefloor. You want to make sure every special moment is captured. It’s a big responsibility— trust us when we say you want someone with experience.  

5. Posed photos are boring

We’ll just say this: It’s all about the poses! Luckily we, your Jacksonville wedding photographers, know just what to do to make your wedding photos look fun and relaxed.
