How will you remember your wedding?

Wedding days can be stressful, but finding the right people to work with can make your day a whole lot easier. This is why I believe chemistry plays the most important role in choosing a photographer.

You know that feeling you get when you just know something goes together?  Whether it’s popcorn at the movies or wine and cheese at home, there’s an undeniable sense of comfort when you know something goes together. That’s the feeling I want you to have when we work together.

When I meet with my couples for the first time, I always bring a few sample albums with full weddings to display. It’s a great way to get a sense of what you can expect, as I think that only showing portfolio worthy images is telling half the story. After we’ve gone through the albums I ask all my couple’s one simple question. How will you remember your wedding?

Answers will typically vary, but let me give you a little personal insight into the question.

I picture myself with my wife Lucy, 30 to 40 years from now piled onto our couch with our grandchildren. We’re flipping through our wedding album with them, trying to explain the silly things we did, reminiscing about the best day of our lives and tearing up as we relive those wonderful memories.

Whether you realize it or not, there’s a big difference between digital files and physical photos. While digital photos are great, the truth of the matter is that they’ll live on a folder in your computer that you may or may not check in on once in a while. Even as you browse through the images, there would definitely be a lot to run through.

A wedding album is your first family heirloom – a physical story that you’ll cherish each time you open it.

So, how will you remember your wedding?
