Buying A House Of Your Own

If you want to own a property for you to live or even as an investment, you need to think long and hard before you put down your hard earned money on the property because you could either be making a very good decision or you could be making the worst decision of your life. Investing in anything means that you are taking a risk because you could either double your savings or you could lose all of your savings depending on the investment that you make. However, it does not always have to be a gamble because you could study the investment that you are making, make accounts, study the amount of money that you are putting down versus the amount of money that you will be able to earn from the property.

Get professionals involved

It is best for you to get professionals who know more about the subject than you do involved in the deal. You will need to have a property conveyancer, a property valuing agent and an investment consultant on board with you when you make the decision. An investment consultant will be able to study the property and the potential earning capacity of the property and let you know if it is a valid investment. If you are paying for the property solely with your savings then the risk is much less but if you are paying for it partly with your savings and you are also taking a loan from the bank, then the risk increases significantly. You will need conveyancing services to help you to transfer the property titles and deeds in to your name legally and make sure that the whole deal is clean cut. If you study the subject and the investment well enough, you can be guaranteed to make a lot of money off of the investments that you make. If you create detailed accounts and you write out a profit projection for the entire time that you are paying back the loan, if any, you will see just how you can make money and if not, how you will lose money so that you can avoid making the investment in the first place. You may not know how to do this at first because there will be many things that you will have to consider however, with time and with experience, you will be able to do it yourself however, until then, always involve professionals to do the costs, the projections and the analysis for your before you invest.

Framing The Perfect Shot At Your Wedding

Photography has become an indispensable part of a wedding nowadays, with photographers going to great lengths to capture the ‘perfect’ shot. There are engagement photo shoots where couples will come up with insane themes, and then there are pre-shoots for the wedding photographer to get to know the couple. Finally on the big day itself, the photographer will come into his/her own and either pose the couple in certain ways or get candid shots or both. Whichever way you lean, here are some ideas for the couple to talk it over with their photographer.

Fuel the Nostalgia

The wedding is both a beginning and an end and most photographers try to capture both sides of this tale. If your wedding clothes tend to be simple and not ‘glam,’ you can try posing with vintage bikes, an old fashioned lace umbrella, a hat, a cane, an old car etc. that will bring out the old world feeling in the picture. Try not to get electricity poles or telephone wires into the picture.

My Interests

Another thing you should do is highlighting your personal interests. Are you and your new partner both dog lovers? Bring your dogs in for a picture. Is one or both of you professional bikers/racers? Pose against your beautiful cyclocross bikes for a hilariously paradoxical picture. Are you both avid readers? Incorporate books into as many pictures as you can find and play a game of ‘Find Wally’ afterwards. There are many things you can do to make both the pictures and the shoot interesting so don’t sell the experience short; put everything into making it enjoyable.

The Beauty of Nature

This is a fav with all photographers so you might not even have to tell them. Most photographers will try to capture you silhouetted against the sunset, standing in grass fields, crouching near flowers, framed against a waterfall in the background or with the soft morning sunlight lighting your hair on fire. There is something about Mother Nature that looks absolutely beautiful on camera and wedding couples look twice as beautiful when surrounded by it.

Photo Booth

This has recently become quite the craze and you can even set it up so that the photographer doesn’t really have to do much. There are plenty of cameras that can be automated to go off when you use a clicker, so you can set up frames, props and a back drop and invite your guests to start taking pictures alongside you or even without you, for fun. Give them a fun hashtag to use so that they can upload pictures that you can later track.
