This Guy Compared His Wedding Pictures Taken By A Photographer Vs. Guests To Make A Point

A wedding can be quite expensive, and although you might want to cut down some unnecessary things, some expenses are essential. Especially, a professional wedding photographer. This photographer called Eirik Halvorsen found a brilliant way to prove why he and specialists like him are essential for a wedding.

When talking to PetaPixel, he said:

I recently came across a thread in a wedding group on Facebook where a bride-to-be said they wanted to save money by not hiring a professional wedding photographer and let the guests be in charge of the photos.

I mean, they will take pictures, right? You just have to get everyone to dropbox you the photos after and you can make your own album and look back on those special moments forever.

Well, not exactly. Eirik got married almost four years ago and he hired his dream photographer to capture the precious moments. To make a point, Eirik took the photographer’s images and compared them with the photos taken by the wedding guests. The image quality, composition, lighting, and so many other features differed dramatically. He said:

All I know from the experience of getting married is that all that is left today is the photos.

So if you want to cut down on the wedding budget, the photographer is not the one to be left out.

Eirik added:

[These] photos are actual photos from our own wedding taken by our guests

The couple came up with the idea after they were scrolling on a wedding photography group on Facebook.

Eirik said:

A bride-to-be said they wanted to save money by not hiring a professional wedding photographer.

I mean, they will take pictures, right? You just have to get everyone to dropbox you the photos after…

… and you can make your own album and look back on those special moments forever

Is that so?

Pictures are nice, but the quality though.

The lighting.

Composition.

Luckily, the couple had hired a photographer to document their wedding instead.
