Slide shows are a great way to entertain your guests at your wedding reception. It can get a little boring in that period of time before or after dinner when there's a lull in your reception and there's only so much polite conversation to be had. The addition of the slide show can help not only conjure up a few laughs, but get your guests to reminisce about the past a bit as well. To keep your slide show from looking like something you created in elementary school, follow the tips below.
Slide shows are a great addition to your reception, but not taking your time or throwing it together last minute can make it look a little tacky. If you are looking for a great slide show, but don't really want to take the time to put it together, it's best to leave it to the professionals. Contact a slide show service or talk to your photographer about a referral.
The best way to keep your special memories alive is to hire a professional photographer to capture them as they happen. But after working with hundreds of professionals over the years as a special events planner, I know first hand that not all photographers are created equally. Some can really focus in on their human subjects to capture emotion that comes right out of the photos, while others are more attuned to making the surroundings in a photo stand out like a 3D feature. So I figured that I could help people who are looking to hire a photography find the best possible fit for the occasion that is going to be documented. Learn the right questions to ask, find out what types of skills to look for, and figure out what tools and resources are needed to capture all the details of your special event.
