Nearly every bride has a wedding photographer at their wedding. However, a large majority of those brides do not have their photographer stay until the end of their reception. There are many reasons why you SHOULD have them stay and today I'll highlight a few of those reasons.
I'll start off by stating that I completely understand that having a professional wedding photographer shoot your entire wedding day gets expensive. Your wedding day is the biggest day of your life though; a couple hundred dollars shouldn't keep you from capturing the moments that you'll hold dear for the rest of your life.
The moments I'm referring to are the most euphoric ones of the night. The moments where the alcohol is flowing and uncle Jerry is belting out "Bohemian Rhapsody" for everyone to hear. The moment when "Teach Me How To Dougie" comes on and a full on dance off breaks out. The moment when your friends and family surround you singing "Don't Stop Believing" for the last song of the night. Your sweetheart dance with your new spouse, and lets not forget your grand exit with sparklers leading you out.
As a wedding DJ I can't tell you how many times I've wished the photographer would've stayed to capture those special moments that take place later in the night. Pay the extra money and let the photographer capture every moment of your new beginning, I know I will!
