I’ve spoken to lots and lots of ladies who had a friend or family member photograph their wedding and they totally regret that decision. Their images were too dark, blown out, blurry, people’s body parts cut off – you get the picture (yes, I threw in an unintended pun). I bet you know someone who has said the same thing. Here are some reasons to actually hire a professional photographer in Durango CO to photograph your wedding – one of the most important days of your life.
- Your friend or family member should be enjoying the wedding, not running around trying to capture everything going on.
- He or she probably doesn’t have a second shooter to help capture moments that you and the main photographer might have missed.
- He or she probably doesn’t have back up equipment in case something fails. I’ve only had this happen one time, but I had back up, so all was well.
- Most weddings we photograph do not have a wedding planner available to set the timeline and make sure everything is running smoothly. In these cases, we step in to keep everything going as it should. We want to make sure we have enough time to capture all of the beautiful photographs you want for your family heirlooms.
- Your friend probably doesn’t have the experience to even know how stressful weddings can be. Professionals have lots of experience, education, and gear to make sure your day is perfect (well, as perfect as possible).
- Many of us charge about as much as you are paying for your flowers, yet we are with you all day, and spend weeks beautifying your images. It’s a value that can’t be stated enough.
- You’ll be moved to tears of joy with your wedding images, instead of tears of despair over the friend’s photos that didn’t turn out very well.
We get super excited when we’re chosen to photograph a couple’s wedding. We’re fully invested and want to make you so happy with your choice. We even offer a 100% money back guarantee that you will love your images, or we’ll return your full investment.
We are offering a Free Engagement Session for the first 3 couples who book their wedding with us. If you don’t like your engagement photos, we will refund your wedding retainer fee. So get in touch with us as soon as possible.
