New Year--New Posts!

It's been way too long since I posted here. . .
so here's to a new year and a new decade--and many new posts!
First up is an entry from one of my fav photograpers, Cherie Steinberg.
The photo is of Aimee and Dave, mutual friends of ours.

The photographer can make the wedding. They are like the psychiatrists, the fashion photographers, the stylist, technical engineer, psychologist, mother, father, friend and comedian. They are your eyes and your ears. They may even make or break the wedding.
The photography decision is the one that all your guests will either say, “Wow, what an amazing team of people you chose. They were incredible, capturing every detail of the day.” Or they will be the people that the guests will say, “Hmm, what a jerk the photographer was.” Love their photography studio and then love their images.
The relationship between you and your photographer needs to be very personal. It’s like choosing the right doctor or the right house. It is a very important decision. If you have to get a cheaper cake or get chicken instead of beef, do it!! Take the $1000 savings and transfer it to the photographers.
Again I urge… Please – do not skimp on the photographer. Your photographer will create your family heirlooms. That is why you need to get the best photographer you can afford.
To give you some perspective of how important this person will be in your life, I’ll share with you that many of our clients become personal friends. Our studio later photographs their pregnancies, their children, and their families. We are included in all family functions and photograph for years to come, and oftentimes we photograph extended family, neighbors and friends. We become woven into their lives.
