Should You Hire a Wedding Coordinator

The short answer to the question, “should you hire a wedding coordinator?”, is most definitely yes. However, not all coordinators are equal and just as you have “weekend photographers” the wedding industry is loaded with inexperienced, self proclaimed coordinators.  Over the past 20 years we have had the opportunity to work with many wedding coordinators and we can honestly say that if you hire an experienced professional coordinator you will be glad that you did.

Weddings are expensive, we all know this, but for most couples it is a once in a lifetime event, so we urge all of you engaged couples not to cut corners just to save a few dollars.  Unfortunately, many couples still choose to trust part time photographers with their most precious memories and it usually ends badly.  A working professional has been successful in making a full time career out of their craft, thus proving their worth and ability to be a great photographer. Their entire livelihood  depends on their success so by nature they tend to be the best.  Well, a professional coordinator is no different, their career is successful only if they can demonstrate that they are best in what they do.  Full time professional coordinators understand the needs of the couples they work with and how their task is related to all the other professionals working with the same couple.

Unlike most amateur or part time wedding coordinators, professional planners/coordinators aren’t there to just enforce a timeline and snap their fingers, they ensure that everyone’s needs are addressed to their best of their ability.  Great coordinators understand that while our prime concern is the wedding couple, the rest of us have particular needs as well. A photographer’s assignment can be much easier to accomplish when they have a good coordinator working along side them with a common goal. This is true for all the professionals that a wedding couple will hire.  Everyone’s work will be enhanced with the right facilitator, so we encourage all wedding couples to consider retaining a professional coordinator.

Nikon D4s Review – First Impressions

Nikon D4s Review

Nikon D4s Review

Share

We’ve been using the Nikon D4’s since they were first available and every member of our studio team has at least one D4 in their kit.  We’re extremely satisfied with the D4’s performance and not really sure what improvements could possibly be made.  Enter the D4s, we recently upgraded to Nikon’s new pro body and let me say simply that it feels great.  Although the physical size of the D4s and D4 are pretty much the same, the D4s just feels better in your hands.  The focus accuracy and speed is improved, while the ISO range is legendary. I was able to fine tune all my lenses in virtually no time at all and the procedure seemed pointless since half of the lenses were tack sharp with tuning set to zero, while the other half may be slightly sharper at the +/- 5 value, splitting hairs really.

The tonal range of the images the D4s produced were stunning, displaying all the gradations I like to see, from pure white to the richest blacks.  We really are excited to be working with the Nikon D4s and this excitement will ultimately be found in the images and video we create with this extraordinary visual instrument.  Thank You Nikon!

Lili + Joseph

Today we set out to photograph Lili and Joseph, starting our session at the King Edward Hotel.  Lili was very excited about our photography and made it clear that next to actually getting married later today, that her photos meant the world to her.  Although I don’t believe that photography should be rushed, our client’s needs are paramount.  So in less than an hour we captured exactly what Lili and Joseph were looking for and I think part of our success today, was that we had great communication from our first meeting.  This couple visited our Streetsville studio and took the time to carefully review our work, letting us know which images really spoke to their taste.  As a professional photographer with over 20 yrs of experience, I can say that making the time to actually visit full time pro photography studios, is the first and most important step in finding the right photographer for your day.  Lili and Joseph did just this and the rest was easy.  This post only highlights a very small preview of their day, so look for their portfolio on our main page, or better yet come see us.

Jesi + Chad

I knew that this wedding was going to fun, since I had the pleasure of taking this couple out for some engagement photos.  Every couple needs a little time to warm up to a photographic session and in just a few frames we were creating some great images.  Jesi and Chad were thrilled with their engagement photographs, so I knew that we would have a good connection on their wedding day.

On April 20 my team set out to meet with Jesi at her parents home, where we anxiously greeted by mom and the bride to be.  We spent our time photographing a mix of candid and creatively lit images.  We kept a careful watch on the time while using our multiple camera coverage to its fullest. We left for the church after an hour, confident that our work was done at the Bride’s home.  The ceremony, park session, and reception all played out perfectly.  Despite the cool temperatures outdoors, our photographs depict a couple and their closest friends having a lot of fun.

I don’t think I would have changed anything that day, April 20, 2013 was great.  Thank you Jesi & Chad.

Diane + Steve

On April 13 our  team started the day with the bridal preparations at Mr & Mrs. Mcgroggans home.  We arrived before our bride, Diane, and set to work on capturing some of the dress and accessory details that every wedding album should have.  The actual wedding day is over before you know it and the little details that get overlooked really make the best photographic memories.

Once Diane arrived with her crew we shifted into candid mode and just let the morning unfold.  We really captured some great moments and even had enough time to photograph our bride with some creative lighting before heading over to their church.  A beautiful ceremony followed and all went off without a hitch, which is pretty much how this day was all around.  Our team had a lot of fun with this group, making this photo assignment another enjoyable event for us and our clients.

Best of luck Diane & Steve and thank you for choosing Exposé Studios .

Kelly + Ted

Kelly and Ted were an amazing couple to work with.  Right from the get go we had a connection that transcended throughout the whole day.

Kelly’s outgoing personality is a perfect match to Ted’s calm persona and this chemistry of theirs found its way into each and every photograph we made that day.

Although we all definitely felt the chills from shooting outdoors, nothing seemed to prevent this couple and their amazing cast from having a good time.  Congratulations Kelly & Ted, it was our pleasure to share this day with you.
