Wedding Photography is extremely competitive and too many people do it very poorly and with inadequate gear. This often results in disappointed brides. Every one of us knows someone who is terribly disappointed in their wedding photographer. That is why we take capturing the memories of weddings very seriously. It’s hard work and it only happens once; there is no going back to stage a moment. There is a wide margin between the person who can get one or two good shots at a wedding and the professionals who can get hundreds of good shots. And while any photographer with professional grade gear can take 1,500 pictures and find some keepers, the primary ingredients you should look for are knowledge and skill.
I love shooting weddings. And it’s important to me to get it done right. Because 10, 15 or even 20 years after the wedding, the only real things left from your day are the photos. The dress probably won’t fit, the food is long gone, technology may have changed, making the video forgotten, etc. But well crafted, high quality photographs by a professional will continue hang on the wall, sit framed on a shelf and be cherished in an album. I tell every bride that I consult with, whether they choose me or not, if they absolutely need to cut corners, do it somewhere else in their planning, but make sure not to when choosing a photographer.
