Let’s face it, if you want to get something done you always want to do it yourself. People who are confident enough of themselves (like me) far too often charges at every tasks as a challenge. That is just how some people are hard wired. But recently, during an event photography in Charlotte; I’ve learned that having that mindset doesn’t always work on your advantage.
To paint a better picture, I’m going to tell you something about myself; since I’ve already stated that this post has something to do with a fairly typical human reaction. And yes, having a difficult time trusting a task to another soul is a reaction. In no way or form would I agree that having this in someone’s personality is a deficiency. Although there are some “psychotic gist” err, ‘psychologists that deems it as so. I refuse to allow others on treating this personality that I have of something close to a disease or sickness. There will never be a time where I will not be willing to get into a debate about why I choose to take most of the responsibilities even when sometimes tasked with a team.
Photography is a precision business. Although it might have sprung out from hobbyist, the techniques and studies of all photographers that came and went is enough to fill a humongous library. There is now enough knowledge, technique and history in photography for it to create another branch of science. That is why the once hobby is now a full time profession. It is a career where the clients can easily decipher which photographer is the season one and which are the beginners based on their works’ results (and not on the paycheck they will request).
A professional photographer is someone who has spent much of his time perfecting the meticulous demands of the business. One of the most challenging thing as a potential client is to choose who should cover such important events of your life. The number of phony would-be photographers who are posing as professionals out there is enough to get someone who doesn’t have much patience to lose it faster. But somehow as a person who has a valid reason to hire a professional, somehow you have got to find a way a longer piece of string as patience to come out of your event as a happy camper. I learned this the hard way. As I’m sure you have already imagined; this semi rant post is about the moral lesson a person learnt by committing a mistake.
I did come out a smarter person because of the experience. I did learned, (although it was too late) that in order to figure out the professional from the who’s not you got to have the patience to browse at a prospect’s portfolio. It may sound silly to you, but a lot of people forget to turn on their computer and check if the claim of someone has some truth into it online. A professional should always have his work displayed online. That is already a well-accepted fact.
It is that time of the year again that weddings happen left and right. Yes, it’s June again and many of us know it is the wedding month. It is the month that most couples find the reason to tie the knot. We have gone with detailing some cultural and historical reason on why this is so on our previous offering. So if you’re wondering why many plan their wedding be held on the month of June, just read back and look it up.
While we never mind to stand in a soap box to preach to people the need for Charlotte wedding planners in our beautiful city, sadly I’ve still come across cases of brides making the wrong choice of not having one. There are still brides who whim on the final day of preparation of her wedding that she should have hired the assistance of a professional. Cases like these would continue to happen as long as the fear of getting professional help still exists. I would assume that it is because of budget constraints that some would hesitate but we have already stated that it is in fact about budget on why one should hire a wedding planner in the first place. Having a budget means that the whole wedding preparation process needs to be constrained by a certain budget without sacrificing too much of the event – does this sound right to anyone?
Of course that’s right! Now, does anybody notice anything peculiar about the above sentence? Is it still not that obvious? Getting a professional planner go out of his way to guide a couple with their wedding spending is crucial to stay in budget. The hesitation should come – if there is any – from misinformation and not from fear. A bride must know that the level of guidance from a planner could also vary to fit your budget. If you didn’t know that when you got married, then that is probably why you didn’t get a planner. There are packages offered by professional planners that cater to their different involvement levels in the planning stage. Again, their job is to do everything possible to get everything right the first time since this is a once in a lifetime event for many – and that’s how everyone would like it.
A wedding is a onetime deal that has to be perfected the first try whoever the organizer is. Just imagine how more the chances would be if the couple is to make the all the decision by themselves. It all boils down to experience. This is in fact what you’re paying for. Now if budget constraints persist, a couple could arrange for just a consultation. That will only last a few hours and a couple is advised to throw all the questions they can ask to the professional. If the budget can allow it, the help can be extended for a whole day. That would allow plenty of time to gain a lot more helpful inputs. These are the other options that many may not be aware of. But of course, to get the most out of the event there is the package where everything is handled by the planner.
