The other point that isn’t discussed very often is that when you hire an experienced Pro (and pay more for them) you don’t just get better images. You get back-up equipment, liability insurance, professional integrity, customer service, imagination and creativity. Also someone with personality to choreograph the Event & Photo taking….smoothly!

Yesterday I dropped my $3500 camera body and $1600 lens on the concrete during a wedding. Lucky for me it didn’t break but if it had I have another one in my kit ready to go.

One of the things that makes VIDAL a great planner is that he recognizes good photography and has the interests of his client in mind. I’m a pro wedding photographer and I would have no problem letting VIDAL pick out my wedding photographer. That’s high praise. VIDAL plans from the ring to the honeymoon!
