Why Hire a Professional Wedding Photographer?

Why should I hire a professional wedding photographer??

I think this is the question that runs through every brides mind at some point during the planning of her wedding. She could just get a family member to take the photos, or a friend. Why would you trust those memories to anyone other than a professional? Lets face it, once the vows are said, the cake is cut and the dancing is done, what are you left with? Hopefully, a wonderful husband whom you will spend the rest of your life with. But what about those photos?

I have met with too many brides who had someone other than a professional take those wedding photos, and it haunts them for the rest of their lives. They mention how their photos were too blurry, or too dark, or that they didn’t even receive their photos at all.

Just remember, once the day is over, you no longer have the church or the cake or the caterer. What remains with you is that wonderful husband who just said “I Do” and those special photographs to share with family and friends. You will look back on those photos for many years to come and remember that special day that you both worked so hard to create. You will someday share those photos with children and possibly grand-children, and laugh over the memories.

I have been photographing weddings for 16 years. As a professional I work to capture those special moments of the day, and will deliver the photos in a reasonable amount of time after the ceremony. You should feel comfortable with your photographer. I’m not here to direct your day, just capture it as it happens. And work with both of you to create beautiful images that you will be proud to own.
