Getting Married In A Courthouse? 4 Reasons To Still Hire A Photographer

Posted on: 8 August 2019

When you decide that you are going to get married in a courthouse, you may feel as if you do not need to take any photos because the setting will not be as beautiful as an actual venue. However, you will still find it worthwhile to hire the best photographer for the job. check out how you can still get great photos when you hire the right wedding photographer for the job. 


Before getting married inside the courthouse, you should not pass up the opportunity to have a pre-wedding photo shoot. This will give you an opportunity to pick a location near the courthouse.  

The great thing about this kind of photo shoot is that you can forget about the wedding and reception for a short time. You will get to spend the time together while taking both planned and candid photos throughout the process. These photos will end up being the last ones that you take before becoming a married couple. 


Although the courthouse may not look as special as most of the venues that you come across, you can still expect to enjoy a beautiful ceremony. This makes it worth working with a photographer that will take all kinds of photos inside the courthouse as well as throughout the ceremony. The building's interior and exterior may be possible to showcase in a desirable way when the building has attractive qualities and the photos are captured by a professional.

First Look 

If you like the idea of having a first look with your spouse, you should not hesitate to include this experience with your photographer. This will provide you with a unique set of photos that you may appreciate going into your wedding photo collection. If you are not sure about how you want to handle the first look, you can get a lot of ideas from the photographer that you hire until you are more than satisfied with one of the possibilities. 


While some couples will not continue to do anything after the ceremony, you may be determined to host a small reception afterward. By making sure that a photographer stays until after the reception, you can look forward to the entire wedding being photographed from start to finish. 

If you keep these tips in mind when you hire a photographer for your wedding, you should know what to talk about when meeting with professionals to determine who you should hire for the job.
