Get It Printed Movement


Last year The Professional Photographers of America implemented a great initiative and created a movement to encourage consumers to get their files printed, and to help professional photographers in the art of selling photographic printed products.

Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is the largest international, non-profit association created by professional photographers, for professional photographers.

Almost as long-lived as photography itself, PPA's roots date back to 1869. It assists more than 30,000 members through protection, education, and resources for their continued success and is leading the effort in helping consumers; professional photographers and photographic suppliers see the value in printing photographs.

The most photographed generation of all time could wind up being the next Lost Generation.

How we chose our photographer.

Firstly you must be able to appreciate their work, in other words you like the photographs that you have seen on their portfolio and website.

Secondly, you must be able to have a good connection with the photographer. To converse well and explain what it is you wish the outcome to be and not second guess. The photographer although skilled is not a mind reader, so make sure you have a good level of communication to convey all of your expectations, and that the photographer can understand your needs and communicate well with you.

Thirdly, if you get on well with the photographer, the photos will definitely be better and your photographer will feel at ease too. Some of the shots can be quite confronting when the photographer gets close and personal, in your personal space so to speak. You need to feel comfortable in front of the camera.

Fourthly, a list of what you would like to happen on the day is also a great idea. These days I am suggesting to my brides, in particular to have on hand an extra person to help round up people that need for their photos to be taken, this will help to alleviate the stress from the bride and groom and make their day even more special.

Lastly but not least, don't ever compromise on price. After all, your photos will last a lifetime when everything else is just a memory. Your photos will be passed on to family members and down to coming generations. So quality should predetermine all else.

Why we give guests a gift for attending a wedding

Ever wonder why we give guests a gift for attending a wedding?

The answer dates back to the 1600s

Ever wonder why we give guests a gift for attending a wedding? Seems a bit odd doesn't it? I mean you've just forked out a small fortune to host this spectacular wedding reception to celebrate your marriage, why should you spend any more on gifts? Surely the $100 per head 3 course dinner you've provided for them is enough, right? Well in my research of wedding traditions, the answer lies in what people believed to help with the vitality of the party.
