With a new wedding season in full swing, many couples are preparing to say “I do” within the next couple of months. For those recently engaged, or still in the planning stages of the big day, there’s something you need to consider. To ‘pin’ or not to ‘pin’ at your New Jersey wedding. This has become a hot topic since Pinterest came about in 2010, but the site really took off in 2012 as more people began using the mobile app.
You Should be the Focus
Let’s be honest, the wedding should be all about the happy couple, no one else. You will want to have a wedding that will get other people ‘pinning’ you on their boards afterwards. You want to be the inspiration for someone else’s wedding ideas. Pinterest is used mostly by women, 82 percent in fact, and is for people to save ideas they find elsewhere. Everyone wants to have their ideas discussed and shared. You want to be the one people are ‘pinning’ once the wedding is over. Don’t rely so heavily on using someone else’s pinned items when planning your wedding. Use your creativity and that of your photographer to capture the day the way you see fit.
Don’t Lock Your Photographer Into a Pinterest Board
As you plan your wedding, don’t lock your photographer into a Pinterest board. With that being said, you can absolutely glean ideas from different boards as to how you want your wedding photos shot, but let your professional photographer be just that, professional. A New Jersey wedding photographer has the skills, experience, knowledge and tools necessary to make your wedding photos perfect.
When you lock your photographer into a Pinterest board you limit what they can do for your photos no matter the backdrop or natural light available. Locking your wedding photographer into a board will ensure that your photos are not unique. Why recreate someone else’s photos when you can be as unique as you want with your own? Locking your photographer into a Pinterest board only limits the creativity for which they were hired.
