Always Preparing For the Little Moments
This past weekend I attended a wedding at the Regions Tower in Indianapolis, Indiana. I was a guest so I did not look up too much about the venue before heading to the wedding. I was not prepared for how beautiful the event space was. It was located amongst the towers of Indy, and was a great place for an outdoor wedding. I didn’t want to be that guest that was trying to cover the wedding so I just brought my Canon 5D Mark III with my Canon 50mm f/1.4 on it. I just wanted something to capture the moments that my family would have that night. Before the wedding even started my daughter found this vent that blew her dress up. Her reaction was priceless. At one point I had contemplated not bringing a camera at all to the wedding. This moment makes me glad that I did. It also makes me very glad that the vent was right next to a large window allowing some beautiful light into the venue.
Why Hiring a Professional Matters
As I said above this was a beautiful venue. One thing that it lacked though was lighting for photography. The light was set up for the event not the photographer. The pair that shot the wedding brought their own light to make sure that they controlled the situation. As I watched them work I realized how badly this would have been had the wedding couple hired a friend with a camera to cover the wedding. The important moments would have been captured, but not as they should have been. Wedding photography is expensive, but it is also one of the only things that you have after the day is over. These are your memories that you will have for the rest of your life. Trust them with someone who can deliver them to you.
