Remember that even you have made all the necessary preparations to make the wedding day a special one, it will be the pictures that will preserve the most precious and unforgettable time of your life. So before you go on a hunt for the best wedding photographer, let’s talk first the five essential tips below when choosing the perfect photographer for your special day.

Ask for Recommendations
Trusting the ‘word of mouth’ is always a good idea because you will certainly have the best recommendation especially if it comes from your family, friends, and colleagues. You can also benefit from online reviews as long as it came from a trusted source. The best thing about asking recommendations is that you get a chance to have a sample of the photographer’s work and judge for yourself if you would like to add them to your list of prospects of wedding photographers. Always keep in mind that there is nothing wrong with asking, so don’t shy away. Who knows? The ‘word of mouth’ might be the best source of finding that perfect photographer for your wedding day.

Check their Portfolio and Years of Experience
You know the basic of stalking right? Photographers usually share in their social media accounts the best photos they have taken for publicity. So take advantage of it, so you will know if their style fits your taste. You might also want to do some background check and ask their years of experience and their expertise in wedding events.

Consider Your Settings
Photographers might impress you with their kind of work. However, it may greatly differ when it comes to your final settings for your wedding. How are they going to cope up and what are strategies and what tools they are going to use if your wedding settings are held both indoor or outdoor. These are just some of the things you need to consider before you say yes to a professional wedding photographer.

Consider Your Budget
Some professional wedding photographers know their worth and usually charge for their service much higher than the others. If you are a little bit tight in budget, then review your list of wedding photographers that can cater you allocated budget but at the same time able to deliver expected results.

Check If You can Easily Get Along with the Photographer
Aside from the technical perspective, you should also choose a photographer that you feel you are comfortable with. It’s a lot easier to smile and laugh in front of a camera if you feel at ease with the one behind the cam, so make sure you feel comfortable with your photographer of choice if you want your wedding photos to be Instagram-worthy and special.

3 Essential Things You Should Know Before Buying Your First Kitchen Knife

A lot of homeowners would agree that a good set of kitchen knives perhaps the most beloved tool in every kitchen. Without a kitchen knife, one won’t be able to experience the real joy of cooking. However, for such an essential piece of kitchenware, we actually know very little about them. There are lots of amazing knives out there that comes different features, but here we are going to talk about the three essential things you should know before buying one, especially if you’re buying for the first time.

Know the Right Knife for You
One of the many mistakes homeowners do when buying their kitchen knives is that not knowing first the right tool their kitchen needs. For most people, probably they would go for an all-purpose knife that cuts everything from trimming meat to prepping vegetables. However, it is highly recommended that one should consider buying a knife that specially made for a specific job. One must also consider their cutting style, different kinds of knife hit the cutting board differently so buying an all-purpose knife might not suit you the best. Also, think of the looks as it can significantly affect your cooking mood because surely a good looking knife adds more fun.

Know the Right Steps in Buying Your Knife
Now let’s say you already done the first part mentioned above, then the next step would know the right steps in buying your knife. There are two significant things one should consider when purchasing a knife, first is the ‘steel,’ and the other is the ‘feel.’

There are two types of steel to choose from. First is the carbon steel, and the other is stainless steel. Carbon is a lot harder and able to keep its sharpness longer than stainless steel. However, carbon steels are more prone to corrosion than stainless steels. But thanks to modern technology today, there are now carbon steels that are now resistant to corrosion.

On the other hand, the need to feel the knife is also necessary. Who would want a knife that isn’t comfortable to hold? A good kitchen knife needs to have a perfect balance when holding. We recommend choosing one with bolsters because it will improve grip significantly thus adding more comfort.

Moreover, the length of an all-purpose knife usually is eight inches. However, you won’t need this kind of length most of the time. A longer blade is best when it comes to chopping stubborn root veggies. It will be tricky to choose which one is the right knife, but we recommend to choose the one that you feel comfortable with.

Know the Right Maintenance for Your Knife
Most of the times, homeowners don’t take knife maintenance seriously. Let’s face it, after using our knives, and we immediately throw it in the dishwasher. Doing that will only make your blade dull over time. The best method that we recommend is to wash your knife with soap and hot water every after use and quickly dry it off to avoid corrosion.
