Silverfox Weddings Tools of Trade - USB Flash Drives

Tools of Trade - USB Flash Drives

As photographers and videographers, people often ask us about our gear...what cameras we use, lighting, computers and so on. So we're starting a new feature called "Tools of the Trade" where we will fill you in on the high quality gear that we are using every day here at Silverfox.  

USB Drives: we find it super convenient to share files through USB Drives. We love sharing our client's digital images from their wedding day as soon as we have them. That's why we are loving our new USB Flash Drives from USB Memory Direct. It's just the right secret weapon we needed to speed up the process of sharing our beautiful images with our awesome clients.

What makes them great for our clients and for us?

1) They LOOK great...the sleek and smooth wood finish gives them a very contemporary, rustic feel. Add the "Silverfox" logo and you've got a thing of beauty.

2) They are FAST! When transferring thousands of files...and MANY large ones, you want a drive that is able to handle it all...and these USB 3.0 drives certainly can.

3) A LIFETIME Guarantee. If anything goes wrong with a drive, USB Memory Direct will replace it, no questions asked and finally...

 4) The small footprint means you can take these anywhere...meaning your 2000+ wedding photos, engagement pics and video(s) can be easily taken with you.

So there you have it! Have any questions about this or any of the other gear we use just drop us a note in the comments below.

TIPGO OUT WITH A BANGHow to best end your reception.

Nobody wants the party to end... everyone wants to continue partying into the night. But some point in time the wedding needs to end. So how do you end cool and exciting?! 

Make an incredible send off! Have sparklers, confetti, or something when you are leaving your reception venue. Your guests will for sure remember it. It's also a great photographic opportunity and a fun and cool way for you guys to leave. 

For a cool way for your guests to leave is to have a Late Night SNACK TRUCK out there. Think about it they are making donuts, bagels, pretzels, empanadas, anything!  People who are a little drunk or whatever they want to continue the night nothing better than leaving with a late night snack. So park that late night truck somewhere by your reception exit is a great idea.

That's our wedding tip of the day... we'll see you next time!

TIP:Reservations and accommodations for your guests

Very important for your out of town guests to stay somewhere so what a great idea is to give them a couple of options to where to stay. 

Hotels, Resorts, AirBNBs

Hotels, Resorts, AirBNBs maybe 2 or 3 with different price points and different offerings. 

Some people want a full service resort, with swimming pools, restaurants, FREE BREAKFAST! 

Others just want something a little more budget conscience where its just a room where they can sleep in like AirBNBS.

BLOCK ROOMS

Also make sure you Block some rooms at these hotels. Very so often hotels will give a discounted rate to bridal parties and your guests.

Choosing an off season: 

T he most popular months to get married are in June, September and October and its no surprise why… the weather is abousoulty beautiful. 

My take on this is to book on an off month like January or March that will for sure cut down on your venue cost.

The Day of the Week:

If you are willing to get married on a Friday, a Sunday afternoon or a even a Thursday during a holiday weekend you can save A LOT… people want to get married on a Saturday night on a prime month so consider an afternoon or off day and you will certainly save there.

How much should you spend on a wedding Gift?

These days especially weddings in New York City and Long Island are hella expensive so the amount of money you should spend on a wedding gift depends on your relationship with the couple and where they are getting married. 

Typically it should be equivalent to the cost of per plate the venue charges and then how close you are to the couple add that on!

If you are a close friend or close relative: $300 + 

Friend or Relative: $200 + 

Co Worker, Distant Family Friend or Distant Relative: $100 +

PLUS 1 !

If you have a plus + to the wedding you should for sure give a little more on your wedding gift, when you think about it that couple will be hosting your date in count for food and drinks.

SAVE SAVE SAVE!

Once you get that Save the Date card… start saving!
