4 Question about photography every couple should ask before booking a Las Vegas Chapel

There seems to be one main Sticky Point when it comes to Destination Weddings here in Las Vegas and it is the whole subject of " Chapel ( Venue ) Photography". There are so many Good, Bad, Ugly, Wonderful, Horrifying, Amazing stories that I would not know where to begin.

Each chapel has their methods and ways of how they run this part of their business. But I believe there is a set of Question every couple should ask before and get the responses in WRITING before booking a chapel in order to not get surprises and then feel cheated or tricked.

I will try my best to give you those questions.

1- When you say I will be getting ( or receiving ) a Photo Session / Photo Shoot / Posed Session - What do you mean when you say " getting ( or receiving ) " 

I know this may seem like a simple thing but did you know that many chapels refer to Photo Session / Photo Shoot / Posed Session to the time the photographer takes in taking the photos and when they say you will get a Photo Session / Photo Shoot / Posed Session it’s referring only to this time nor that you will get any of these photos unless you purchase them after.

Have the Chapel explain each item you will receive in details what it is you will be getting in writing so you can understand exactly what to expect . Because it may not be worth your time to do it if you are not interested in buying them after.

2- When you say I will be getting ( or receiving ) X amount of Digital Ceremony Photos - When do you consider the Ceremony Starts and Ends? 

Some chapels offer a 1st dance - champagne toast - cake cutting and even Family Portraits at the altar. These moments may be considered non-ceremony and you may need to buy these photos ( frustrating right ). Ask them to be clear on what is the ceremony, when it starts , when it ends and whats photos are part of it.

3- When you say I will be getting ( or receiving ) X amount Professional Digital Photos - What Resolution will I get them ( or ask up to what size can I print them in Good Quality ) and will they have any watermark.

Some chapels offer Digital Photos but in such low resolution that a standard 8x10 print ( letter size ) looks pretty bad. This is a very important question to ask if you plan on printing later on. Or give them to you with a watermark . They may later offer high resolution or watermark-less for an extra fee.

4- When you say "If I pay $X I can bring my own Photographer" make sure to have them list what and where is it permitted to shoot and what and where is not. 

Some chapels permit outside photographers for a fee but limit very tightly the scope, places and times permitted to shoot ( some go as far as to say you paid the fee but that excluded the ceremony.). Also, ask if the photographer or videographer will need to bring their COI (certificate of insurance) as they may ask you the day of when you get there ready to get married the photographer or videographer may not have it on them ( they can probably get it online as they should hold insurance if they are professionals ) and if they don't they will not let them shoot and you may lose your fee.

Don’t get me wrong chapels are not these bad companies run by bad people, No , far from it . But sometimes in the way they promote the business they do not add these little details that later become points of frustration. I hope in asking these question when your wedding is said and done and you get your photos you are as happy as the day they were taken.

Did you Know........ ?

The White Wedding Dress is a new thing ... sort of .

 

Thanks to Queen Victoria and her love of white lace we have now our traditional white wedding dress .  Red was in fact a very popular color for brides back in the day .

Was Queen Victoria the 1st to wear white , no , but she had a huge following and her dress made a famous publication that stated a trend ( we can call her an Influencer ).

Who do you think has enough influence this days to start a new trend in wedding dresses that would stand as long as this one .

If you want to see the story unfold watch " The Crown "  on Netflix and see that dress in HD .

 

 

Why have a Photo Booth at your Wedding ?

360 Video of a Wedding Photo Booth

Uploaded by Mario Ramirez Photography and Photo Booths on 2016-09-24.

Well the question should be why not .........

Why not give your guest a fun why to entertain themselves and release some of the stress ( yeah guest get stressed at weddings too, the waiting , get dressed , etc ... ) 

Why not fill some of the dead time with an activity that is fun , no need for you to setup ( if you hire the right professional like us ) , especially during that  pre-reception boredom .

Why not use the photo booth prints as the best wedding favors . One thing i have learned people do not throw away their photos or photos of their love ones ( of their Exs that is a different story for a different blog ) they keep them for ever , 5 , 8 , 10 years later those photos will still be around and people will still remember fondly your wedding day .

Why not give your guest the opportunity to loosen up and have fun . Come on the right props with, the right attendant ( like we have always ) your guest will be laughing and having a great time , even those that do not dance , nor drink , nor really like to have fun , enjoy the photo booth . It's a great time to make fun of other and yourself . 

So i gave you 4 reasons why not to have a Photo Booth at your wedding , now i am going to give you the reason WHY YES you should have US.

Because we provide your event with the most professional service and all those Why Nots !!!!
