Why is wedding photography an Investment and why is it important?
Weddings are expensive when you consider how much time and money is poured into an event that will last (generally) a day. Almost everything involved will only be used or worn or experienced for that one day. If you sit down and think about how much money you're investing in: a venue, catering for a meal, alcohol if you're serving adult beverages, music and entertainment, the dress, the cake, the flowers, the tiny tokens of appreciation for your guests..... it adds up pretty fast.
Additionally, on your wedding day you're experiencing things through your eyes. You don't get the see the way your dress sweeps across the dance floor when your husband spins you during your first dance. You don't get to see the huge smile on your face when your new husband goes in for the garter.
And then there's the memories. Wouldn't you rather have something to look at, to remind you of the cake and flowers and the smiles on your guests' faces? Your photographer is who makes that single day turn into tangible memories you and your guests can look back on for years--often generations--to come. It's how your mother shows her co-workers how stunning her daughter looked walking down the aisle. Or how your future grandchildren get to see the look on their grandfather's face when he first laid eyes on his beautiful bride. It's how you look at a picture and it takes you back 20 years and you laugh as you remember the tussle that went down over the bouquet toss.
This is more than just pictures. This is your love story that you get to re-live over and over.
Don't you think it's worth the investment?
