Why hiring a professional photographer for your wedding is a must and don't leave your day to a friend or apprentice who wants to photograph your day!

For us it should be the other way around.

The inexperienced or amateur photographer or just a friend wanting to be cool should be obliged to advise you to have a professional wedding photography specialist for your day.

We feel compelled to share all this information in this post!


Your wedding day is one of the most important and cherished moments in your life. Capturing these special moments in photographs is essential to preserving memories forever. 

While it might be tempting to entrust the task to a close friend or family member who is passionate about photography, there are several reasons why hiring a professional photographer is the best choice. In this blog, we’ll explore the potential pitfalls of accepting photos from a non-professional and the main differences between an amateur and a professional photographer for your wedding day.

Focus on the moment:

When you hire a professional photographer, you can be sure they have the experience and knowledge to focus solely on capturing the special moments of your big day. Amateurs, on the other hand, may be more likely to get caught up in the emotion of the event, potentially missing essential shots or capturing blurry images.

Skill and Experience:

Professional photographers have honed their skills through years of practice, training, and real-world experience. 

We especially already photographed in all kinds of places like churches, barn, hotels, at dawn, in the middle of the day, in the afternoon, at night, at dawn, with snow, with a storm, and with rain. 

Wy have an understanding of lighting, composition and posing, which ensures your wedding photos are of the highest quality. 

Amateurs may lack the technical know-how and may struggle to deliver consistent results.

Backup Equipment and Plans:

Professional photographers invest in high quality photographic equipment and have backup equipment readily available. 

This ensures that they can handle any unforeseen technical issues during the wedding day. 

New-comers may not have the same level of preparation, leaving you with limited options if something goes wrong.

Artistic Vision:

A professional photographer brings his unique artistic vision to your wedding day.

They know how to capture the essence of your love story, emotions and the ambience of the event in a way that goes beyond mere snapshots.

An amateur may not be able to produce the same level of creativity and artistry in their work.

Stress-free experience:

Hiring a professional allows you and your loved ones to relax and fully enjoy your wedding day without the added pressure of directing someone inexperienced.

A professional knows when and where to get the perfect shot, letting you focus on creating memories.

Post-production and editing:

After the wedding, a professional photographer spends time meticulously selecting and editing the best images to deliver a refined final product.

They have experience enhancing colors, correcting lighting and retouching images, ensuring your wedding photos are visually stunning.

Your close friend may not have the necessary software skills or the attention to detail needed for exceptional post-production.


Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and entrusting the photography to a professional is a decision you won’t regret.

Their experience, technical skills, equipment, and artistic vision all come together to create a timeless collection of photographs that you’ll cherish for generations to come.

While your close friend or family member might have good intentions, hiring a professional photographer ensures that your wedding memories are captured flawlessly, allowing you to relive the magic of that day again and again.

We cannot speak more highly of Dani and Grasi. They are kind, professional, energetic and take amazingly beautiful photographs.

They made us both feel so comfortable in front of the camera and helped make the day so stress free. You can genuinely tell that these two love their job and that makes all the difference when you are picking the right photographer to share in these intimate and special life moments with you.

We loved the energy Dani and Grasi brought to both the engagement photo shoot and the wedding day. When you are done working with them, you will not only feel like you just took the most beautiful photos, but that you also have two new friends. They are so incredibly sweet and professional. A picture is worth a thousand words, and their photographs speak volumes about their talent and passion.”
