I believe that the experience you have with your wedding vendors can have a direct effect on how you remember your day. As the years pass some of those experiences will fade or become comical when they weren’t so funny the day you got married. Some of these events even become familiar jokes among friends. My best friend has been married almost six years and to this day if I mention purple potatoes or peonies, she gets a little tense. Over all, her wedding was amazing but two of her vendors neglected to provide a service and experience that were professional.
I believe that every bride deserves an experience leading up to her wedding that will allow her to focus with joy on what is truly going on, the start of a family and a legacy. You are making a promise of forever and your day should be about that. Not worrying when the cake will arrive or how to get all of your extended family into one portrait.
For this reason, I take the time to get to know my brides and their fiance’s. I don’t want to simply show up to their wedding to photograph it and walk away. Next to your bridesmaids and groom, I am the one person you are going to spend the most time with and that should be fun, not forced.
I believe that part of the experience of working together is meeting up over coffee . . meeting face to face, building a relationship and providing you a service that helps make your day run smoothly. Part of the experience and service I provide is a bridal guide, printed with years of knowledge and beautiful images to make your day amazing.
As you begin to plan your wedding, remember that experience and service are infinitely more valuable than budget or expense. The people you work with on your wedding day should be people you enjoy being around who value you and understand the significance of your day.
