"My advice is not to compromise. Photographs are literally the only thing you hold onto after the wedding is over, the better the photographer, the better your story is told."-Brett Heidebrecht
I cannot stress how true this statement is! As a recent bride, I know how much time, effort, and money goes into choosing the flowers, the bridesmaids dresses, "the Dress", the tuxedos, the centerpieces... everything! But for some reason, we as brides tend to forget that these things are very momentary and are gone once the day is over. It's like we have a temporary lapse in sanity and good judgment when we are faced with the challenge of planning our big day. But, all is not lost IF the bride hires a professional photographer to save all the special details, moments, and emotions of the day. And trust me, not just anyone will do. The photographer has to share your vision, your idea of how you want to preserve your special day, and have the skill and experience to carry it out. Otherwise, you might as well use plastic tablecloths, fake and fading silk flowers, and wear a big white sheet for your wedding dress because the cheapo photographer that agrees to take your wedding photos for $100 won't deliver quite what you'd hoped. And you'll have nothing beautiful or lasting to prove that your day was indeed both magical and stunning. Trust me, it is worth the couple thousand you spend on hiring a professional.
But I digress. Anywho, thought I'd share a few favorites from the past:
