SECRET #1: How To Guarantee Your Wedding Lives Up To Your Dreams.
Believe it or not, the photographer you select to photograph your wedding can make or break your wedding day. Yes,
I'm not kidding! Your wedding day - not just your photographs!
Why? Because he's THERE - with you and your family, in person,
interacting with all your family and guests, and representing
you every minute.
HONESTLY, we're not just talking about photography here. We're
talking about YOUR WEDDING... how YOU FEEL on your wedding
day, and how smoothly and romantically everything goes. You
see, your photographer determines this by the way he helps
you plan your wedding, the way he treats you and your loved
ones, and the way he conducts himself throughout the day.
here's the secret. Meet the photographer IN PERSON
before you hire anyone to photograph your wedding! Most brides
don't realize that some studios hire part time photographers
to photograph their weddings for them. This means that you
go to a studio, talk with a salesperson, look at the sample
photographs, and make a decision - all without really knowing
who will be photographing your wedding!
if it's not just the right person doing the photography and
interacting with all your family and guests, everything can
when you're talking with a potential studio, ask them the
- Who took the
photographs you are showing me?
- Who will be
photographing my wedding if we hire your studio?
- We want to MEET
this photographer BEFORE we hire your studio.
when you meet this person, ask him the following questions:
- How will you
dress at my wedding?
- Did you do all
the samples of wedding photography we saw on your website,
and in the shows and albums? If not, show us your work,
- How long will
you be at my wedding?
- Before you leave
my wedding, who do you check with to see if there's anything
else we would like you to do?
- Do you work
from a checklist of photos?
the way, just so you know, here are my answers to those questions
am the only photographer at my studio. I will be photographing
your wedding personally. I will dress appropriately for YOUR
wedding. If you prefer I wear a tie and suit jacket, I will.
If you would be more comfortable with me being in "business
casual" attire, that is what I will wear. I never wear
jeans, t-shirts, tennis shoes, or other "street"
clothes. I want to represent you professionally.
am typically at your wedding until a pre-specified final event
at your reception. This is decided upon by all of us at your
final consultation, however, I will be at your wedding until
you, your husband, your parents, and your husband's parents
all say they have nothing else for me to do. I NEVER will
leave your wedding without checking with all of these people.
use no checklist. Instead, I prefer to develop a relationship
with my couples and their families ahead of time so I can
concentrate on capturing those special relationships and moments.
Weddings are fast-moving and the day goes by in a blur. A
photographer should not waste time looking at his checklist
to get a "canned" pose. I watch for the special,
magical, and spontaneous moments that will be so meaningful
to you to have photographs of.
#2: Announcing The Single Most Important 'Secret'
You MUST Know About Weddings!
Here's a really big "secret" that almost no brides
think about when interviewing a potential photographer:
What's their guarantee? What happens if you aren't
happy with the photography, or the way you and your friends
were treated, or if the photographer left your wedding before
he was supposed to, etc.
This is of the utmost importance! The guarantee (make
sure it's in writing!) tells you just how committed
they are going to be in taking good care of you, and doing
a great job.
just so you know, here's our IRON CLAD, 100% MONEY BACK
will be THRILLED (not just 'satisfied') with
how we represented you and your family at your wedding,
and also THRILLED with your photographs, or
we will do whatever necessary to have you be THRILLED with
them, or we will return ALL YOUR MONEY. Period.
No hard feelings either. We want you to LOVE everything
we do for you!
You see, we understand that you can't do this over again. This
is a "one-time-thing" and everything MUST be perfect!

#3: An Important Secret: Miss This One, And
You May Select The Wrong Photographer
This seems so obvious, and yet brides miss this one all
the time, and pay a BIG PRICE for it after their wedding!
Be sure the photographer has lots of happy brides and grooms,
who have written him and told him how happy they were with
both him, and his work! We're talking TESTIMONIALS
here! From real people, with their full names,
and their city and state, so you can call them if you want
to, just to "check them out".
You will notice that throughout this webpage are photographs
and testimonials from some of the brides and grooms with
whom we have been honored to work on their wedding day.
Also notice that their FULL names, city and state are listed,
so, if you really wanted to, you could look them up in the
phone book, and call them.
