7 Essential Services You Must Look For When Hiring Wedding Photographers

Edit Article |

Posted: Feb 08, 2010 |Comments: 0

]]>

When hiring a wedding photographer, you need to choose someone who offers a complete service even if you are not going to avail all of them for your wedding. Why? You will never know if the wedding package you will avail is enough until you’ll see the inclusions. Be reminded that some photography studios have set packages that may include and exclude other services, and those exclusions may be under a separate category or as miscellaneous service.

A wedding package you will typically see from a professional photographer may be into separate packages. A full offering of services usually includes those that are in the miscellaneous services and this category may be called “special wedding package” or something similar to that effect.

Now bear in mind that special wedding packages are usually expensive than those that only include digital photography and video coverage. Of course, the more services included, the higher the price. The only question here is if you’re going to avail the special package or resort to the typical wedding package. It’s really up to you to decide, but you must look for these other services just in case you change your mind and want to have a complete package for this special event.

(1) Digital photography

As a general practice among professional photographers, the digital age has brought them to new heights and edge in the technological realm. It is common for photographers of our time to use digital gadgets aside from digital cameras. They are using computer software and hardware for faster and better resolutions compared to the film-type cameras of yesteryears.

This service may include the pre-wedding photo shoot, during the day itself and after the wedding.

(2) Digital video coverage

For capturing the moment while it’s happening, pros use digital video cameras to provide lasting memories complete with audio. Editing is also done digitally via computer with the use of specific software to edit and add music.

(3) On-spot video editing

This is one of the many add-on services that many pros offer today. It involves video coverage and editing on the same day of the wedding and the edited video is shown during the reception. This is a great way to share and see the ceremony altogether during the reception so everybody can enjoy it not just the couple and their families.

(4) Projector and wide screen service

This is common nowadays particularly during weddings. Memoirs, flashbacks of the couple’s love story, dedications and well-wishes from family and friends, and the digital photo slide presentation at the hotel/dressing room and church may be shown during the reception. The couple or their families can arrange the service and slides, and give them to the photographer on the day of the wedding for presentation.

(5) Additional photographer/videographer

This is essential if you are planning to have a location wedding and if you have hundreds of guests. Taking more pictures and videos than normal would definitely need more pros on the floor to capture all the special moments. It’s best to have additional photographer and videographer on hand if you are planning for this type of wedding.

(6) Albums and framed blown-up photo/s [including Guest book, a set of magnetic wedding photo album/s, 2 mini albums for parents]

These services are actually standard for wedding packages. But some couples who do not have enough budget may omit these add-ons. However, it is quite ideal at least to have the couple’s album and the guest book as part of their memoir.

(7) Add-on services [miscellaneous]

Add-ons are usually miscellaneous services that couples may or may not want to include in their wedding package. These are usually not included in the standard packages offered by professional photographers, but are there just in case customers want to add more.

Add-ons may include tarpaulin, additional photographer/videographer on top of the scheduled professionals, additional assistants particularly for location or out-of-town weddings, additional wide screen and audiovisual services.

Choosing the right photographer is the key to getting all the services that you want. If you have the budget for it, it’s best to avail the complete package inclusive of select add-ons to capture all the memories of your special day. A budget package with select services may also be chosen especially if you are tight on your budget. You can always talk to the photographer and ask for advice so you can come up with an ideal price.

New Book Takes In-Depth Look at What Hollywood Believes and How It Affects Culture


Religions of the Stars


Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 28, 2009

Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise, and Madonna all promote their own brand of spirituality. Richard Gere, Marie Osmond, and Ashton Kutcher embrace beliefs of yet other religions. In a culture obsessed and saturated with celebrity, people can’t help but be inundated with the spiritual practices of the rich and famous.

Whether athletes or actors or talk show hosts or even reality TV stars, these people have become role models–even spiritual guides–for children, teens, and adults alike. Yet just because someone has a light shining on them does not mean they are reflecting the True Light. Most are pushing their own agendas and beliefs.

What do these celebrities really believe? Does it line up with what the Bible teaches? Bestselling pop-culture apologist Richard Abanes answers these questions and more as he examines everything from Scientology to New Age to Kabbalah to Mormonism. Appealing to those curious about the religions of the rich and famous, Abanes holds celebrities’ beliefs up to the light of the Gospel, showing how each religion falls short of the Truth.

Concerned parents will also gain insight into how today’s Hollywood spirituality affects the movies and television programs they see, as well as how their children might be influenced by the way these religions are portrayed in the media.

“My purpose isn’t to tear down any religion or spirituality, nor is it my desire to mock, belittle, or degrade anyone’s views…my approach, therefore, will not be negative, per se, but informational–i.e., based on clear explanations of each belief system, coupled with thoughtful observations of those systems from an evangelical Christian perspective.” –Richard Abanes

About the Author:

Richard Abanes–former Broadway performer and television/film actor–is a bestselling and award-winning author of twenty-one books, specializing in the area of cults, the occult, world religions, and pop culture. His most popular titles include A New Earth, An Old Deception and The Truth Behind the Da Vinci Code. In 1997, he received The Myers Center Award for the Study of Human Rights in North America for his “outstanding work on intolerance.”

There are many different ways that you can decorate your home. One of the more interesting ways would be with stained glass windows. Now many of us associate stained glass windows as being in churches. There are however homes and commercial buildings where stained glass windows are used. The uses of these windows in the different locations provide similar and dissimilar uses.

In the church the stained glass windows are to allow sunlight into the church in a manner that will reflect the colored panels and illuminate the picture that is shown on the windows. The usual picture that you will find on these stained glass windows is that of biblical scenes. The most common scene will be that of Jesus, his mother Mary and a choir of heavenly angles.

This type of scene is quite different from the ones in homes and residences. At these locations that scenes are pictorial in nature. To make a stained glass window look really beautiful in the sunlight numerous techniques which have been long been used are employed. These techniques today are worked both by skilled artisans and by the use of machinery.

As you look at these two distinct styles of stained glass windows you will notice the casual style and the spiritual style which is used. In both of these windows style the focus of the window is to draw the eye of the beholder. You will find a few large examples of this type of window. These places will include sculptures and public houses. You will mainly find pubs – or bars as they are called in England – use these windows.

The use of stained glass windows in places like this is to promote a sense of warmth and privacy. To help offset these windows, a type of glass known as cathedral glass is also used. Today you can see different types of stained glass windows being used in homes. These windows will not be that large as they will not create an atmosphere of airiness. Instead the windows which are selected for their colored glass beauty are long and narrow.

The most common place to find residential stained glass windows is near the front door. Some homes will have these stained glass windows being used as a fan light. There are many companies who will be able to make the type of stained glass window that you desire and they will send an expert to install these windows for you as well.

How to Destroy Your Church: Don’t Look in the Mirror

Article Source: http://www.articlesbase.com/ – How to Destroy Your Church: Don’t Look in the Mirror





Mirrors are useful things. They show us when we need to comb our hair, reveal the ketchup stain just out of sight on our shirt, and help us to get the specks out of our eyes. And because of that last item, if you want to destroy your church, you should never – figuratively speaking – “look in the mirror.”

Don’t spend time examining yourself for sin. Don’t put your words, actions, attitudes, and thoughts to the test. Don’t do group evaluations to see whether the church, the leadership team, the committees, etc. are on target scripturally, or are perhaps heading off the straight and narrow down the path of sin.

Just assume that everything you do, say, think, and believe is 100% accurate, and does not require further analysis. No need for a mirror here, thank you. Every hair is in place and there are no specks in my eyes – I’m sure of it.

The fact is, that attitude tends to spawn a second attitude … a tendency to point out specks in other people’s eyes. You remember Jesus’ warning in Matthew 7:3-5?

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

You can see the progression: sin (the speck in my eye) covered by pride (the conviction that I could not possibly be wrong) leads to hypocrisy (telling other people what’s wrong with them, while ignoring what’s wrong with me). The final result? Instead of helping others, you alienate them.

Hypocrisy can be a very subtle sin, because the hypocrite may truly believe he or she is trying to help another person. And may very well have found a speck in the other person’s eye that needs removing. And may know all the right Scripture verses. But with a hypocritical attitude – an unwillingness to see the plank in his or her own eye – positive change will never result. People resist, ignore, or are offended by hypocrites. That is why hypocrisy can often be found at the root of church dissension and splits: hypocrisy polarizes people into separate camps. 

The antidote? A healthy dose of examination, individually or as a group, in order to take a good look at ourselves and remove the planks out of our own eyes. Here are a few “mirrors” you can look in:

 I Corinthians 13: How do you stack up to this description of love? Romans 12:9-21: Are you living out each phrase in this action-packed chapter? Galatians 5:19-26: How do you compare to the virtues listed here? How about the sins? Matthew 5:1-12: Do you live out the Beatitudes each day?

 

When we spend time in examination, rooting out our sin, confessing it, and repenting of it, it builds a strong sense of humility. Clothed with humility, we can indeed help take the specks out of other people’s eyes … because we admit how many planks we have to deal with ourselves. People can accept help from someone who admits their sin and weakness much more readily than they can accept help from a self-proclaimed supersaint. Humility is the antithesis of hypocrisy. Humility is the foundation of church unity.

Take a good look in the mirror. Is there a plank in your eye?
