Welcome to my blog. On this page you will find articles I personally write about the photography industry and my work. You will also see blogs showing the photos from many of my photo sessions.
You’ve spent months planning what is to be one of the most important days of
your life. So much has led up to this point. And so much is yet to follow. More
than anyone, you know what this day means to you. You don’t want to just
remember the day of your wedding, but all the days before that made it the
journey that it is. You need a professional photographer.
A professional wedding photographer is your chance to make that journey last forever. And if
you’re not sold already, read on to find out how a professional photographer can
make that happen.
Having a nice camera is sure to get you in the door, but it’s a long ways from the
picture you want to frame up in your home for years to come. Photography is
more than just the technology that makes it possible. And there are certain skills
that you just can’t buy off the shelf. That’s where a professional photographer
comes in. Years of experience can be measured in years…but also in quality,
professionalism, and just plain old know-how. No one is saying that your college
roomate can’t work some magic with that latest iPhone of theirs, but when
capturing a day you want to last forever—there is none better suited to help you
than someone who makes their living doing just that.
It rhymes, and it’s true. Let’s be honest: you’re stressed already on your wedding
day when no one asks you to be. In fact, they’re probably telling you to do just
the opposite. With such an important day, with your family and friends (and
future inlaws) there too, there’s a certain amount of stress that you can’t avoid.
And that’s okay. But why add to the worry? Hiring a professional photographer
gives you one less thing to worry about. Leaving the heavy lifting to a
professional gives you the liberty to relax and focus on the things that really
matter. And truly, you matter. It’s your big day. So hop out of the driver’s seat
and go soak up the limelight for once. You’ve earned it.
Money. We’ve all heard of it (seeing it appears to be a different story). It’s
tempting to save a couple bucks on a cheaper option and hire someone less
experienced. And the math checks out. That’s if immortalizing one of the
greatest moments of your life is simply a cost to you. But you know that it’s
more. Hiring a professional to capture those moments that you want to live
forever, that’s an investment. These photos aren’t going in the basement. They’ll
be up on the walls, tucked away in wallets, resting on mantles…in places that
matter. You should treat them like things that matter. And that starts before the
wedding. It starts with your decision to do things the way they ought to be done.
A professional is what your memories deserve. Don’t settle for anything less.
They say that nothing gold can last forever. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t
try. It turns out, life is longer than you think. And as the years go by, the things
that we keep with us, are the things that keep us going. You’ll want to keep your
spouse by your side for as long as time will allow. Why not do the same for the
day and moment that you became theirs? Hire one more to capture the day that
two became one. You won’t regret it.
