“How to Hire a Photographer and Videographer”
Saturday, January 31, 2009
10 AM to 12:30 PM
The Gallery at The Prince George Ballroom
15 East 27th Street, between 5th and Madison Avenues

Course description: Are you overwhelmed by the sheer number of wedding photographers and videographers in New York? Are you wondering how to tell one from the other without calling and meeting each one? Who is right for your wedding and what should you be looking for? Join us for a step-by-step seminar that will take you through the research and selection process for two of the most important vendors you will hire for your wedding day. Learn about film vs. digital, black and white vs. color, flash vs. natural light, candid vs. photojournalistic, discs vs. prints and all the other “buzz words” you are flooded with as you pour over photo and video websites. Also, get tips on negotiating contracts specifically with photographers and videographers to get the best value and to actually walk away with the images you want. This course is well-suited for novice planners as well as brides and grooms. Light breakfast will be served. Call 212.206.0026 or email before January 25th to purchase tickets at the discounted price of $30!

The first event sounds useful. I'm not sure about the second event, only because I've read every blog and post and martha stewart article on the subject! But if you're just starting, it might be a good way to get started - instead of lurking on blogs, like I have!
