  3. How to #HashTag your wedding? Having a wedding photographer is essential for capturing the timeline of your big day. But what about all of the photos that your guests take throughout the evening? After all, they can capture some fun shots that your photographer may not have gotten. Plus, you often have to wait weeks to see the pictures that your wedding photographer took. Instagram is an easy way to check out all of the photos that were taken throughout your wedding. But with all of the guests at your nuptials posting pictures on Instagram, how are you supposed to see them all? This is where hashtags come in. Creating a hashtag Hashtags - Words or phrases shared on social media sites and demarked by the pound sign - allow you to see all of the pictures that are related to that tag. For example, if you type #weddingdress into Instagram or Twitter, you will see all pictures and posts that users have put up regarding wedding dresses (so long as the user added that hastag to his or her post). You can do the same for your big day! Create your very own hashtag, like #MJWedding13 or #JenandBenTietheKnot. It can be whatever you would like. However, if your hashtag is too generic, like #wedding, there's a chance other people could have already used that hashtag. To find out if yours is already taken, search the term on Instagram. When creating your hashtag, make sure there are no spaces or characters. The pound sign needs to be touching the rest of the word. For example, using the hashag #m&rwedding wouldn't work because of the "&" sign. How to find photos When you or your guests want to search through photos from the big day, just head to Instagram and type in the appropriate hashtag. This way, all of the photos for your big day will be in one place, making them easily accessible to all. How to spread the word There are a few ways you can inform your guests of the hashtag you will be using. You can have it printed on your ceremony programs and offer a slight explanation. It could be something like "If you use Instagram, please take pictures throughout our big day using the hashtag (insert tag)." You could also print the hashtag on each guest's place card. A display at the entrance of your reception is another popular option. Set up a chalkboard framed in gold, like this couple did.

  4. Wedding photos are the only commemoration of the hours and money spent to plan one of the most important days of your life. Therefore other than the choice of a life partner, choosing the wedding photographer is the most important wedding- related decision you will make. So is not to be taken lightly. Here some tips to make the right decision selecting the photographer to record your Big Day; 1. Choose the style of the wedding photography. Make some research about the photo trends; Traditional, Candid shots, Glamour-fashion, Combined style, Eclectic, etc. 2. Decide the level of service you want for your wedding photographer; 1-3 hours for the ceremony and cocktail hour may be enough for you. Some couples may prefer a complete package that include; Getting ready session, rehearsal dinner, bridal portraits & newlywed photos, Trash the Dress. 3. Decide how many images you would like from your wedding celebration. Some photographers may provide you with under 100 images to remember your wedding day by. Higher-end photographers often capture thousands of images (generally from 1,000 to 3,000) for you to keep forever. 4. Decide how many edited & printed photos you want from you photographer, to display them for years after as a reminder of the wedding day. Many brides who choose photographers that only give them a disc of their images (no album, prints or other items) find that they lack the time, software or knowledge to create their own albums, properly edit the photos (crop, color correct, etc.). 5. Determine your budget. 6. Determine what form of your pictures you will want from your photographer. Just purchasing the prints is sometimes economical if you do not want an album. If you expect to need a large number of prints, it may be better (and faster) to purchase the negatives from your photographer and have the copies made privately, at your leisure. If you plan to use the images in numerous creative ways, or want to post them to a website or include them in a screen saver, you will probably want to receive the digital photo files directly from your photographer via the Internet or on a CD-ROM.
