24 Mar NuView: More than a Photographer
Photography is more accessible than it has ever been. Each new generation of smartphone includes a better camera with editing software readily available for download. Because of this, more and more people are starting their own photography companies and offering their services for cheaper than the professionals. So why bother hiring a professional photographer?
It certainly seems sweet and sentimental having your cousin, an aspiring photographer, taking your photos on your wedding day. But the truth is, wedding photography can be very stressful, especially for someone who’s never done it before. We believe family and friends should just relax and enjoy your big day, instead of stressing themselves out making sure they get every single shot. I asked one of our photographers, Peter, what he thinks. “Friends or family members charged with taking pictures are more likely to be distracted by the event and the attendees,” Peter says. And that makes total sense! While it’s a very special opportunity to photograph a close friend’s wedding, guests should be able to enjoy themselves and leave the big picture (pun intended!) to us. Going with a professional company, like NuView, means that your photographer is guaranteed to be experienced, knowledgeable, and professional. We know how to pose, know the best spots in venues, and know how to get that amazing shot! With over 25 years of experience in the industry, our staff has seen it all.
NuView photographers always have backup plans. With years of experience in the industry, we’ve learned how to protect our equipment in case of rain, and how to cool it down in extreme heat. We have piles of batteries and extra lenses. We have educated photographers that know how to read light and adjust for unpleasant weather. But most importantly, we also have insurance. I asked another photographer, Cyndi what she thought. She said, “With a professional company like NuView, you have nothing to worry about. Our equipment is all backed up, as are our photographers. So if I were to get hit by a bus on the way to the wedding, we would send another photographer to capture your day. And they would be equally as prepared. We also back up all photos that we take on hard drives. If anything were to happen to your pictures and you needed copies, we’d be happy to provide them. A friend or family member just starting out may not have the resources we have to make sure your images stay protected and insured no matter what. Ultimately, hiring a professional photographer means getting what you paid for.”
One of the most overlooked benefit to booking with NuView is that we always come prepared. We know how to tie ties, affix boutonnieres, and even sew. Our camera bags are full of anything you may need for last minute adjustments. We carry safety pins, bobby pins, hair elastics. We even know how to get red wine out of a white bridal gown. We go out of our way to make your day seamless. Hair out of place? We’ve got combs. Waterworks starting? We’ve got tissues. Anxious about Covid? We’ve got masks and hand sanitizer. Bottom line is we come fully equipped to handle any last minute disaster.
Finally, our photographers are masters of communication. They’re all personable and easy to talk to, creating to a comfortable environment with pictures that reflect that. We’re all about easy smiles and little moments. Building a trusting relationship with your photographer leads to amazing photos and a stress-free day.
So do away with blurry iPhone photos or faces left as silhouettes. Do away with missed moments or lost images. Book your wedding photographer with NuView, and get so much more than a photographer; you get a friend for life.
