Photographing/Videotaping the Ceremony



The wedding service begins when the couple has taken its place in the front of the assembled guests, and ends when the wedding party begins its exit. Photographers and videographers are asked to be as unobtrusive as possible so as not to disrupt the ceremony. The bridal party may have as many pictures as desired outside the ceremony. In recent years it has become customary for photographs to be taken prior to the ceremony out of courtesy to your guests. This is a perfectly acceptable practice. Remember, the ideal is that this is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and thus the service is conducted with dignity and reverence, whether in a church sanctuary, on a country club lawn or on a beach under the blue canopy of sky.

Some folks have thought that hiring a photographer is an expense that can be avoided, and such is surely the case. One caveat is in remembering that these are the items that we rush back into the house to rescue when the whole neighborhood is going up in flames. The truth is that weddings and photographs go together like peanut butter and jelly. Remember that as you plan your special day. Below are some professionals with whom we have worked and we can say will give you good results.
