I can certainly understand trying to stay within a budget, but when you hear story after story about disasters that people have gone through with their Wedding Photography, it might be worth re-thinking your budget.
Here are just a few examples of what some of my clients and their friends have shared with me.
A recently married bridesmaid told me at her friend’s wedding that she wished she would have know about us because her photographer showed up late and left early without even telling anyone.
Another bride told me her friend hired a friend to take her wedding photos, and 8 months later, still has not received her photos. Which was why she was hiring us so she didn’t have to go through what her friend did.
Two couples I booked this year had unfavorable results with another photographer when shooting their engagement photos. So I re-shot their engagement photos and will also be shooting their weddings.
A recent senior called and ask me to photograph her because the photographer she previously had an appointment with forgot about her appointment and never showed up.
The old adage still holds true - You get what you pay for. Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life so why chance it? Wedding photography is an investment, which is why we continue to hold the highest standards for our services, and products that we provide to our clients.
Is high-end wedding photography worth it?
Ok, so you might squirm at paying a little more. But after you watch this clip I think you’ll agree that having done so, it’s totally worth it. Put your mind at ease, invest in and enjoy your wedding day, knowing that you will not have to worry about going through something like this:
If you had a wedding photography disaster, tell us about it here.
