Why Is Wedding Photography So Expensive? (Part One)

Jesse’s Top Five First Dance Songs (Pt. 2)

So, for some levity during this holiday season, take a moment to enjoy the beautiful chaos of a formal wedding photo session! Continue reading →

Six Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Wedding Photographer

Wedding photographers are a resourceful bunch. They’re problem solvers. If the bride is nervous on her wedding day, they put her at ease and make sure she’ll be comfortable in front of the camera. If four of the five groomsmen are inexplicably missing during the bridal party shoot, they rearrange the timeline to make sure those images will be captured later on.
