The True Value of a Real Wedding Photographer


You’re engaged. Your mind is racing with all of the different options and vendors to choose from. You don’t even know where to start (that’s why I highly recommend hiring a planner!), but know you want certain vendors. Whether it’s because your friend used amazing vendors at her wedding you loved, or you’ve been following them awhile on social media, or maybe you head to The Knot to find more options, things start coming together!


And when it’s time to pick a photographer, it’s important not to view this as just something to check off from your list of things to get done! A photographer is one of my most important vendors for your wedding day!! You might think I’m saying this just because I am a photographer, but let me explain why it’s SUCH an important part of your day!



WHY YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IS IMPORTANT


First off, your photographer will be planning with you for MONTHS, maybe even over a year! And on the wedding day, your photographer will be around you a LOT! I joke with brides I’ll be by your side more than your groom! Your photographer has a huge say in planning your timeline, capture the teary moments of your mom zipping up your dress, the one who shares in the joy of your first look, and the one that sees you first after you come down the aisle as husband and wife! It’s a BIG deal! But they also can set the tone for the day! You want to know your photographer will stay positive, be kind to you, your bridal party, and your family, and will treat your loved ones how they deserve to be treated no matter the circumstances. Your photographer has more interaction with you and your loved ones than any other vendor on your day besides your planner! It’s a BIG decision!


But there’s another reason your photographer is worth investing in. Your photos will last decades into the future. 10 years after the wedding, many of the things from the wedding won’t be here anymore. But you’ll have your photos to treasure for a lifetime. You’ll be able to relive this day over and over with your pictures. Also, a talented photographer will make the other investments even more valuable. Think about it this way. You say yes to the dress of your dreams, have the cascading bouquet you’ve always hoped for, and have never felt so glamorous with your hair and makeup perfect! Not to mention, you’re smiling more than you have any other day you can remember. But what if that emotion isn’t captured beautifully? What if you paid thousands for that dress, only to not love the pictures of it? What if the flowers you’ve been wanting for years aren’t photographed well? A skilled photographer who matches your style will be able to provide you with beautiful images showcasing the money, time, and thought you put into your day! Making your dreams truly come to LIFE.


I was talking to a friend who wished they had spent more on their photographer. She told me she was disappointed with what she received, and that she looks through her wedding images monthly, even years after her wedding! Yes, she loved her wedding and is thankful someone offered to do the pictures for a low cost, but wishes she had hired a better photographer and invested in that area for her wedding more. I had a client once tell me she was so scared to hire a wedding photographer because a friend of hers had hired a company - and the most unbelievable thing happened - they never showed up! Whattttt?!?! How is that possible? To me - I was shocked to my core. I constantly over-plan and worry and stress my little heart out about making sure I'm early, and with time to everything. I'm a planner by nature. And above all, I'm true to my word.


And last, we associate pictures with how we were feeling in that moment. A friend recently took photos of my husband, Peter and I. We were laughing almost the entire session, and when I look at those images I remember the joy and laughter we had in those moments! But it goes the other way too. If you felt crazy uncomfortable your whole engagement session, and felt really awkward working with someone, chances are you’re going to feel those emotions again looking back at the images. That’s why it’s important to find someone who makes you feel comfortable, relaxed, and taken care of. Someone who makes it a happy and exciting time, and shares the joy with you! This shouldn’t be a stressful experience, but a fun, relaxed one to capture such a special time! You should feel amazing about yourself during your photos! And you want to look back on those pictures and remember the joy you felt with the person who matters most to you!


If you find someone you love, who makes you feel comfortable, who you know you can trust with your wedding day, and someone you already can’t wait to be in front of their camera so you can receive pictures you’ll love and treasure for years to come, that’s worth investing in! I do not always believe paying more gets you more value in every case; however, often finding true value does come with an investment that you look back and are thankful you’ve made. But you should rest assured if you know you’ve found the perfect photographer to capture your wedding day.


I hope this helps in your search to finding the photographer that best fits your needs, and also helps explain why it’s such a valuable investment!


I truly look forward to working with you.

First off, congrats on the engagement!! I promise you won’t get tired of staring at your newest accessory! That ring comes with a lot of excitement but it also means a bit of work is ahead. After photographing over 900 weddings, AND planning one of our own, I understand all that goes into it! That is why my desire is to do more than simply show up on the wedding day. I make it my goal to help each bride throughout the whole process of planning the photographic part of her wedding.

ADD AN ADDITIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER TO ANY COLLECTION

I love to call myself a self-proclaimed 'photography ninja', and at 100% of every single wedding my company has ever captured (both without and also the ones with a Secondary Shooter), that role has solely been of myself capturing BOTH perspectives of the Bride + Groom as the Bride walks down the aisle, because of where I place myself. Thats how good I am at my role. One spot, one photographer as the bride is walking down the aisle is all any of my couples have ever needed to capture the smiles and tears of seeing one another.

In my online Blog Posts of my weddings, for every single one of them, I have captured the perspective of the Bride walking down the aisle looking at her groom and also the face of a groom staring at his gorgeous bride.

Usually, if a couple wanted a secondary perspective with a secondary shooter, that photographer would be getting a different angle of the ceremony, but normally my couples know well I am enough since I really do pride myself on working quickly and effectively due to my years of capturing so many weddings. My experience has really shaped my ability to go above and beyond for each of my weddings. I also recommend second photographers only when your guest count is 250 or above. This is because a secondary photographer really aides greatly with guest captures.

I hope this information helps. Reach out to me if you have any questions at all.

$200 per hourly fee (2 hour minimum) -or- $500.00 (set fee) per additional secondary photographer requested alongside the Lead Photographer for your entire Signature Wedding Collection coverage choice listed above.

ADD AN ADDITIONAL HOUR OF THE MAIN PHOTOGRAPHER

$650 per hour/ Lead Photographer (A La Carte rate)

ADD AN BRIDAL SHOWER OR WEDDING REHEARSAL EVENT COVERAGE

Save 20% off any of our Formal Event Coverage listed on our website when you are a wedding client of SMP.

ADD RUSH-PROCESSING

$1000 (one time fee per event) for your completed Online Gallery to be delivered within five (5) business days from the date of the event. This means your gallery will be immediately edited and delivered to you before any other sessions and events on our editing cue.
