It’s simply impossible to emphasize the value of having professional wedding photography and videography on your big day. The list of reasons why this should be at the top of your wish list are endless – but we’re not here to overwhelm you with anything more than exactly what you need to know. Instead, we’ve pulled together our top four reasons you need professional photography and videography at your wedding.

1. Professional experience in wedding photography and videography is everything

Our experts in wedding photography and videography are not only skilled at what they do – they’re also incredibly passionate about their work. This passion translates into a lifelong yearning to continually improve their skills, enhance their work and ultimately, capture wedding moments in a way that will endure through time.

As well as their dedication to their craft, professionals in wedding photography and videography also come armed with high-quality camera equipment, an excellent attention to detail and the perfect eye for lighting, posing and frame. They’ll be able to direct you in front of the lens, make you feel comfortable in the spotlight and always capture you from your best angle on your wedding day.

2. Wedding photography and videography are keepsakes that you’ll hold onto for life

Your photography and videography is curated to transport you back in time – for years to come. This content is an opportunity to look back on your moment in time, reminisce on the special people that made your wedding day and share that chapter of life with future generations. Many people choose to do this by having their photographs enlarged and printed to be showcased around their home, just like wedding stationery. Remember that the camera on your phone cannot compete with a professional camera. High-quality printing is only possible when the original photography and videography is shot in high-definition. Phone, tablet and older devices may capture images that look good on the small screen, but they’ll quickly lose their impact when edited.

While you’ll certainly hold onto your photography and videography for life, sharing professional wedding content is also a great way to thank family and friends for attending your wedding after the fact. You may post images with a card of gratitude, reshare content on social media or even have loved ones over for a viewing of the wedding production – the possibilities are endless!


At Desire Weddings, we believe in the power of the in-between moments. Our style is candid and documentary-inspired, meaning we’re continually looking to capture the interactions as they happen, when they happen. This fly-on-the-wall approach is the key to crafting photographs and videos that feel genuine, authentically and emotional. Our attention to detail will also help pick out small adjustments that can be made to your dress, tuxedo, decorations or background to ensure every frame is as flawless as the last.


Your wedding photography and videography is designed to capture your moment in time. It’s a special start to a new chapter in your love story and a rare opportunity to have everyone that matters in the one place, at the one time.
