Vogue magazine on weddings

Posted on 14th January 2016

A recent article in Vogue magazine advising brides they didn’t need a professional wedding photographer, in these days of camera phones every guest at your wedding was your best option for great wedding memories.

Well you can go down that road but I think the article is very misleading and you should really decide how you want to remember your wedding.

Vogue themselves employ professional photographers to capture images for their readers, if what they say is true, that the modern bride has no need of a professional photographer, then why don’t they practice what they preach? Could it be they know full well that what they say in this article is total rubbish ? Or do they think there readers are not deserving of the same quality they show in their pages?

Could it be that this article was written flippantly by someone who wasn’t really putting their brain into gear before setting about the task of advising the “first time” modern bride.

If only the camera or the camera phone took the pictures they might be in with a slight chance of advising correctly, but it’s the photographer that makes a stunning photograph as I’m sure bright minded brides will know

It’s the professional wedding photographer who is in the right place at the right time because they do this job every week, not the camera, it’s the photographer that sees the light and sets the exposure not the camera and it’s the photographer that edits the images to a high signature style that the bride expects to make her look her very best

The sad thing is that some brides may be taken in by this misleading article and when it’s too late and they don’t have the great images that will be their memories of this very special day, they will be unhappy.
