The cost of the priceless
"Excuse me" said the lady sitting at the table next to me, "I've overheard your conversation with the young couple you just met, it seemed like they were looking for a wedding photographer and you showed them your work. Do you mind if I have a look at your album, too?" I invited the lady to join my table, she had a look at my display album and said : "Your work is really beautiful, you must have photographed a lot of amazing weddings to have such a great portfolio! One thing I didn't like though was that I could only see portraits of one bride in this album, I think you need to include more images of different brides."
I said: "Well, the images you've just seen are actually not the highlights of my career, they are all of the same wedding, captured on one single day. That's also the reason you only saw images of one bride in this album, because it was her wedding day."
The lady looked at me and there were a few moments of silence. Her face turned to an expression of sadness and tears came from her eye. Then she said "I wish my husband and me would have just one of these beautiful images I saw in your album from our wedding day. When we got married our photographer just didn't care. I hate my wedding photographs so much, I can't even look at them."
Unfortunately this was not the first time I had heard stories like this and it truly makes me sad!
There is only one chance to capture the memories of one of the most special days in your life - that's why finding the right photographer is so important. The price you pay for great wedding photography is not just another expense for a day that goes by quickly, it's an investment into the memories you will have in your future.
Investing in beautiful photographs will also give you great value for your money. Your dress, the flowers, all drinks and food at the reception and almost every other part of your wedding day can only be enjoyed once. Great wedding photography however will give you enjoyment for the rest of your life. You can view your images again and again and re-live the memories and beautiful feelings from your special day.

I only photograph a limited number of weddings each year to make sure you receive the best service possible.
I also believe that weddings are far too important to leave communication purely up to email. The connection between you and your photographer is so important – the more comfortable you fee around him, the more natural your images will be. Let's have a quick chat on the phone, I'd be happy to help you figure out if we’re a good fit.
