What is a Wedding Content Creator?
It is common to ask a member of your wedding party to snap some more candid photos throughout the day, not only does this give you a more well-rounded view of your day when combined with your professionally captured photographs but it lets you see more of your guests and their experiences than your photographer may be able to capture. However, as a member of your wedding party, and a guest, they will be busy experiencing your wedding too, so will often forget, or won’t have somewhere to carry a phone.
This is where a Wedding Content Creator comes in! A Wedding Content Creator is exactly as their title says, this is someone who is there to capture your wedding in a relaxed, in-the-moment way. As they have been hired to photograph your day, they will not get distracted chatting to people, posing for group shots, or drinking one too many – this means your whole day will be chronicled for you to peruse at your leisure.

Things to remember
- As with all your suppliers, ask for testimonials and portfolios for any person you are considering hiring.
- Make sure to inform your photographer/videographer that you are planning on hiring a content creator, they may need to tweak their contract with you if it usually specifies that they are the only photography team.
- Consider sharing your, and your supplier’s handles with everyone hired. This will allow everyone to be tagged in posts, meaning you get to see more detailed images of your florals, etc.
