Amy and Dutch with the Kansas City Wedding Photographers

We started by meeting Amy and Dutch at our Phoenix Photography studio in Shawnee Kansas, when we hit it off right we got started immediately working with them on their wedding day planning.

Fun in the sunset, Amy with Dutch

Their engagement photo shoot was done at Shawnee Mission Park where we had the awesome       opportunity to photograph them and their horse at sunset around the lake.  It was an exciting time – they brought fun props to use as well.  We ended up shooting about 75 frames and posted them online for the couple and their family to view.  They loved them!

Love in the park

The wedding was in Paola Kansas at a beautiful location, Town Square event venue which was fabulous in all respects, great food, wonderful service and a beautiful ceremony area – hard wood floors high ceilings – in all the upstairs area accompanied with  great lighting from all the large windows.

Main event room

She Said "Yes"

In the Paola Square there were several great outdoor locations and perfect weather for starting thier day.  We got started with the couple getting ready and then meeting in a floral garden under the whisteria arch.  Then the rest of the wedding party jumped on a trolley with the couple and we went to several fun – but close – locations to get dozens of shots of the couple and the wedding party…now to the ceremony!

Once the Wedding Ceremony was over everyone poured into the large downstairs event area.  Many well decorated large round tables with a huge dancing area in the middle.  The cake off to one corner was on an cool country antique table (the decor of Town Square) with fun western decorations around and behind.om here it’s now wedding time.  The ceremony held on the huge second floor of Town Square, superbly decorated with beautiful flowers that seem to represent their country taste well with sweet little tin lanterns at the isel edge.  Town Square has an awsome pergula built for couples to get married under with the lighting just right it makes for a very nice scene to photograph.

Kansas City Wedding Photographers Lisa Catera and John Phoenix found the evening to be filled a couple hundred of thier frineds and family celebrating the wedding and all the fun traditional wedding event things that took palce, but the most important and outstanding is how happy the couple were and how great the entire day turned out.  Have a look at some of the pics from thier day…they were simply great to work with and we look forward to seeing them for all their anniversary photo shoots!

Why your wedding photographer should be high in your wedding budget consideration.

Wedding couple in picture frame

The reality is that most people aren’t aware of what actually goes into making great pictures that you’ll cherish for the rest of your days. They’re not familiar with the processes that most photographers go through – it’s much more than just showing up to take the pictures and then handing you a DVD or printed proofs. There is actually quite a bit that takes place before, during and after your wedding that contributes to the final result.

Most good wedding photographers didn’t just wake up one day able to make the kind of beautiful images that you see in their wedding portfolios. Most of them started their careers with education – both formal and informal – on how to make great pictures. Professional photography is definitely an acquired skill. Most photographers spend years learning how to master their camera equipment, lighting scenarios, image composition and different posing situations that work (and ones that don’t work). Formal education is often supplemented with internships, on-the-job training and many hours spent making, evaluating and re-making picture after picture.

Having gotten this far in their photography careers, once the photographer decides to take the plunge into wedding photography, a significant additional learning effort must be undertaken to learn and perfect the science and the art of photographing weddings. Many, if not most photographers will start this process by working (usually for free) on anywhere from a few to a dozen or more weddings as a “second shooter” with an experienced wedding photographer. Much like driving an 18-wheeled semi-truck is different than driving your passenger car, making great photos at a wedding is completely different from making great pictures in a studio or for a newspaper or magazine.

Once the photographer has a handful or more weddings under their belt as a second shooter, they will often perform a couple of weddings for free or near-free as a primary shooter. It’s critical for the photographer to continue to gain experience in the dynamic wedding environment. This experience is invaluable, as you never truly understand the demands of dynamic event photography until you’re “on the hook” to deliver the final product from start-to-finish.

Wedding Photography by Phoenix Photography

During the Wedding

During the wedding, your photographer (or photographers) will arrive many hours before the ceremony to capture the details – often this includes the bridal party getting ready (hair & makeup, putting on the dress, etc) as well as the groomsmen and groom getting ready. Also, as the ceremony and reception areas are set up the photographer will capture the details of the decorations, table settings, etc. Of course, the photographer(s) will then make photos of the ceremony and reception, as well as any send-off.

After the Wedding

This is the component of the process that is probably the most misunderstood by the average person, as it is the one that they have little-to-no exposure to, generally speaking. On average, your photographer will spend anywhere from two to four hours on the back end – selecting, processing, enhancing and tweaking your images – for every hour that they are in front of you. That means that an average 8 hour wedding will require, at a minimum, a total of 24 to 40 hours of work on the part of the photographer. A “one day” wedding has suddenly turned into almost a full week of work.

Most photographers will need at a minimum of two professional quality camera bodies (usually three or even four including backups), which can cost anywhere from $1500 to $6000 or more. Add to that an array of lenses costing anywhere from a couple of hundred to a couple of thousand dollars each, lighting equipment, required software, etc and the costs can be more than $20,000 just in basic equipment to be able to make, edit and process photos. And like most technology, much of the above equipment will be obsolete in 3-5 years due to advances in capabilities and industry trends.

Other Considerations – Location

This is an important one to keep in mind as well. Though Kansas City is not a very expensive place to live, Real estate alone is ridiculously expensive. Add to that the very real costs of health insurance, some of the highest fuel costs in the country, general costs of doing business (marketing and advertising, printing, utilities, etc) and you can see that it can get very expensive, very quickly just for someone to make the move into the wedding photography business.

In Closing

The intent of this article is simply to attempt to illustrate that which most couples shopping for a decent wedding photographer never realize – that there is much more than “show up and shoot” on the day of your wedding that went into your photographer’s ability to be there and make images that will be cherished for the rest of their lives.

COMMENT:

Photographers aren’t just there the day of your wedding to shoot your wedding. They are running and operating a business! Just like in any business marketing, research, and customer service is happening all the time. Websites need to be kept updated and bills need to be paid. Some photographers chose to take only one wedding a month, but others take one every weekend which means your wedding probably isn’t the only wedding they are working on. Also, they have employees or contractors to pay, such as a second photographer. Not only do they have to pay the second photographer, but extra equipment has to be purchased for the second photographer. I haven’t met a wedding photographer that did absolutely love what they do. However, they still want to make a profit, so keep all of this in mind when you are looking at those prices!

Closing Comment:

The Knot, Kansas City Wedding Photoraphy

Your wedding day is often the most important day of your life. It is the one day where everything is about you and you get to marry the one person that means the most to you. Weddings cause many stresses and worries but at the end of the day it is the day in which you are happiest. Wedding photographers capture this happiness, how beautiful everyone looks and the events of the day. Wedding photos are shown for years and years to grandchildren and great grandchildren, they are therefore an extremely important feature. Your wedding photos will keep the memory of that special day with you forever so you will want them to be of the best quality possible. Good quality photos unfortunately cost a lot of money, but they are well worth it!

The Case Against ‘Good Enough’ in wedding photography

Blog by Kathleen Trenske

Wedding Photos

My parents have exactly 18 professional images from their wedding. Eighteen. I know them inside and out. I could describe each image to you so well that a sketch artist would be able to recreate them.

How do I know them so well? Because I’ve looked at them hundreds of times. I’ve looked at them hundreds of times because they were on display, in an album. An album that was made by a professional, filled with prints made through a professional lab and bound in a book available only to professionals. From the time I was a little girl I was fascinated by it — seeing my parents so young, my grandparents and aunts and uncles surrounding them. It was a simple leather book, with the images slipped in and preserved behind plastic but it held up surprisingly well over time. Even though I looked at it more times than I could count. Even though this May those images will turn 42 years old.

But what about couples that marry today? What if they decide to forgo an album? What if they decide it’s not worth the cost? How many images do you really think they’ll put into frames? Five? Ten? Maybe that first year married, they’ll have a bunch. But then, kids comes along. Baby pictures replace wedding pictures in those frames. They move, things change. In 40 years, how many pictures do you think their children will know by heart? How many pictures will they have even seen?

Today, a lot of couples think just getting the disc of images is “good enough.” Here’s the problem with that thinking: it’s not true. Not by a long shot.

Don’t get me wrong, I think that getting the files from your day is great. Today’s couples probably get up to 1,000 images from their wedding, WAY more images than my parents did. After all, what happened to all those other images from my parents’ wedding day? They probably sat, negatives in a box, at their photographer’s studio never again to see the light of day. So I think it’s wonderful that couples get ALL their photos. But what worries me is that even with that option, it won’t mean that today’s couples will necessarily be better off. My fear is that today’s couples will actually end up with LESS than what my parent’s got in 1971.

Think about it, will the computers of 2055 even have DVD drives? USB ports? Will they even have hard drives at all? If the past is any indication, the answer is no. You know what the big technological advancement was when my parents got married? Eight-track players. What if their images were stored on the equivalent of that? How in the world would I see those images today?

But you know what never becomes obsolete? What never goes out of style? Photographs. And not just any photographs. Not photos printed at a drugstore. Professional photographs, printed by a professional lab. Those are the photos you find in an attic. It could be a 100-year-old photo, but it still looks good. Because back then, the paper photographs were printed on was high quality and developing them was an art form. There were no machines that spit out pictures onto cheap paper with inexpensive ink. I actually have to stop myself from intervening when I see people at those automated machines in a drugstore. Whatever they’re charging, it’s too much. Because those prints aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. They will fade. They will curl. They will not stand the test of time. Not even close.

Your memories are worth more than that. And your wedding images? They are worth TONS more than that. These aren’t snapshots from a vacation. They aren’t pictures from your iPhone. You cared enough about these moments to hire a professional to photograph them. Follow that through by having a professional print them. Have that professional print the pictures you put into frames and have them design you a high-quality wedding album that you will cherish for decades.

If you purchase an album through your photographer, you can see a sample in person. You can touch and feel it and make sure it is worth every penny.

I know that albums are expensive. That’s for good reason. They are custom-designed books, usually hand-stitched and hand assembled and made just for you.

But of all the things you spend money on for your wedding, your wedding photographs are the ONLY thing that will increase in value over time. As the years pass, you’ll be more and more glad that you have them. Especially, if you can experience looking through them by flipping through a gorgeous custom-designed album instead of sitting in front of your computer and clicking “next” with your mouse.

So, figure out a way to make it happen. Figure out a way to afford that album. Forgo a centerpiece. Cut back on your guest list. Opt out of the vintage car you’ll drive in for all of 20 minutes.

Don’t just do it for you. Do it for your children. Do it for your grandchildren. Because when they root around in your attic in 2075, they will have no idea what do with a USB key anymore than they would with a laser disc player.
