Be their wedding photographer (if they are on a tight budget…)

By |November 21st, 2015|

I’ve done a lot of photography in my time and been on several courses, so I offered to be the photographer at my cousin’s wedding, rather than getting a gift. She really likes my photography and was really pleased with the idea (partly because wedding photographers are expensive). Not everyone would want an amateur to do this, so be prepared for a knock-back and you may want to suggest it in a way that allows the couple to turn you down 🙂

I combined photos of the lead up to the wedding as well as the actual day (just to complete the story), and this is something you wouldn’t get from a professional

Reprint an old photo from when they were courting

When my friend got married I printed a photo of her and her husband from the night they first met (which was in a bar). It’s actually a nice photo and they were really touched by it and now have it in their living room.

Paint a room for them (include or exclude paint based on your budget!)

This year (because my brother had no money) mum suggested he could paint a room in grandmas house as his christmas present to her. Mum bought the paint, so this wasn’t something he had to buy. Seemed to work out well for all involved.
