Another reason why most people splurge is that weddings not only witness the union of two people, but also the innumerable memories made, and the people who come together to celebrate, and also to bond after many years, which is why photography is now an integral part every wedding, and people are willing to spend a bomb to hire wedding photographers, give live streaming to those who couldn’t attend the wedding, and ask for movies to be shot, as no matter what, after the big day, all that is left are the memories that are documented through photographs and that’s why they're top notch as people splurge to get the best photographer that they can.
