Picking the Pefect Wedding Photographer in Buffalo, New York

As soon as you choose a date and book your venue, the pressure's on to line up the perfect wedding photographer. This can be a frustrating endeavor since here in Buffalo, like everywhere in New York State, photographers book up quickly, and packages can be confusing. What's more, you want to make sure the wedding photographer you hire has the right experience, personality, and style to reflect the tone of your special day.

What if you could book your wedding photographer through a company representing the most reliable, time-tested professionals available in the greater Buffalo area? What if that company worked with the best vendors for album and print packages?

Finding the Best Photographer Within Your Budget

Independent wedding photographers charge what they do because they have to promote their brand through advertising, websites, networking, bridal fairs and other expensive, time-consuming marketing programs. Of course, their prices also reflect their experience, as well as their investment in state-of-the-art equipment.

Some photographers charge what they do not only because of their brilliant portfolios but because they've made a name for themselves.

Direct Entertainment's services are a win-win for couples and photographers; we handle the wedding photographer's print and album services, as well as their marketing. They get to do what they love—shoot weddings—and bridal couples get to pick the photography style and package they want...without the hassle.

Calling the Shots

Many wedding photographers won't shoot from your "wish list" of special moments. They might market themselves as documentary-style photographers, strictly adhering to natural candids.

Others might allow for group portraits or staged images, but lack the right skill and equipment to achieve the results you want.

Sometimes it's not clear which services are included in advertised photography packages. Are editing and retouching part of the deal? Can you get a mix of color and black-and-white photography? Do you get ownership of all your retouched images to use as you wish?

Direct Entertainment offers the options you deserve for your wedding day coverage and photography keepsakes.

Identifying the Professionals

These days, anyone can buy a pro-level digital camera and design a gorgeous website. Some photographers have even been known to land photo essays in high-end bridal magazines with only a half-dozen stunning images, but without the experience or reputation to back them up. The true mark of a professional is the ability to create visually consistent coverage of the entire event.

Direct Entertainment allows you to view complete wedding stories from each of our wedding photography professionals so you know you're not booking a "flash in the pan".

Other photographers prefer to hand over unretouched images after the wedding, with no other services or strings attached. This absolves them from establishing relationships with custom album and print companies, and the time and expense of retouching and formatting your wedding images.

You don't want to worry if your photographer will take weeks or months to produce your images. We make them available in a timely fashion so you and your guests can order high-quality custom photography products through a private, personalized online gallery. And you get all your retouched images on a DVD, with full rights to do with them as you please.

True professionals know that equipment can fail, cars can break down, and life sometimes gets in the way, but even the best independent photographers are limited in what they can guarantee to make things right. When screening your prospective photographers, how will they make sure you're covered when Murphy's Law comes into play?

We support our photographers and wedding couples by ensuring that backup equipment is on-site, and replacement photographers of the same caliber and style are available in the unlikely event that the need arises. That's hard to match in the wedding photography industry.

Personality is Everything

Your wedding photographer is going to be a big part of your day. No other vendor will spend as much time with you and your bridal party. Will you feel comfortable allowing your wedding photographer to photograph the "getting ready" shots? If you or your partner are camera-shy, it's important that you have a good rapport with the person behind the lens.

Our photographers are professional and personable. They'll interact with your guests in an unobtrusive yet friendly manner, dressed appropriately for your event.

With as many as 300 weddings under each photographer's belt, our professionals know how to put their subjects at ease during group photos. What many bridal parties and families dread can become a light-hearted bonding experience.

They'll work with your shot list and follow your wedding day plan to capture the highlights of your event while surprising you with amazing, spontaneous moments taken without you even noticing that the photographer is there.

Drama-Free Weddings

The last thing you want on your wedding day is drama. At least, no more than you might expect from emotional family members and close friends. Have you heard stories of photographers becoming overbearing bullies, or blaming their poor results on insufficient ambient lighting? It happens, but not with our hand-picked wedding photographers.

Weddings are high-pressure events, especially when there aren't opportunities for "re-shoots". This is why it's important to hire an experienced veteran photographer who can anticipate and correct problems before they arise.

Lighting challenges? It's very common that the most romantic venues require skillful use of supplemental light. Your photographer should know how to use professional strobes to capture the ambiance of your event without harsh shadows or "blown-out" flash effects. Our photographers do!

We also ensure that our photographers know that they're not in charge of the flow of your event. They may quietly pull you aside to take advantage of fleeting, magical natural light, or make suggestions for unexpected photo opportunities, but your wedding is about you, not them.

Some photographers have a difficult time with videographers, as they compete for the best vantage point. Others aren't willing or able to coordinate with DJs or wedding planners to make sure special moments don't go as planned. We make sure our photographers are team players who know that collaboration with other vendors is essential to a beautifully orchastrated—and photographed—wedding celebration.

Book with Confidence

Our photographers aren't one-trick ponies, and neither are we. In addition to high-caliber contemporary wedding photographers, Direct Entertainment provides the best wedding videography services and wedding DJs available in the Buffalo area, and we'll even help you keep track of your wedding plan.

Your wedding day has been a lifelong dream. Effortless wedding planning can be a reality. If you value quality, professionalism, convenience, and overall satisfaction, contact Direct Entertainment to learn more about our leading Buffalo vendors and package discounts.
