Makes it sound so formal and expensive, doesn't it? Investment. Like you'll need to sell a kidney on the black market or eat noodles until your fifth anniversary, just to get me and my camera for a day. Hey, if that was the case, I'd tell you to go somewhere else, because it wouldn't be worth it.
Luckily though, that's not the case, for two different reasons. Firstly, I have packages fit for every budget, and I'm always open to customizing any package to suit your specific needs.
Secondly, and most importantly, you don't just get me and my camera for a day. You get the wedding album your grandkids will find in the attic when you're old, wrinkly and you probably have a napkin collection. They'll laugh at your old-fashioned hairstyles like we laugh at the wedding photos from the 80s, and find photos of their grandfather doing the macarena on the dancefloor with his tie around his head. You get to relive the tears on each others' cheeks during your vows and the way you shared secret glances full of love throughout the night. Not to be overdramatic, but you pretty much get to freeze time. If that's not worth investing in, I don't know what is.
And then you get me. I don't want to be just another vendor. I'm not going to simply show up on your day, photograph it and go home. I want to get to know you, learn what youtube cat video is your favorite and why you want to spend the rest of your lives together. Booking with me means that you get my undivided attention whenever you need it. You get my advice for locations, timelines, caterers, make-up artists or anything else you might need. You get me for a complimentary couple shoot, so we can hang out and get to know each other properly whilst making you some freaking incredible photos for your wedding invites, stationary, or simply just your Facebook profiles. You choose. You get me for wine hangouts and Sunday phone calls if need be. You get me on your wedding day (duh!), all the way from early morning until your guests start stumbling in their own feet whilst sipping sangria from a shoe. You get my passion to make sure your wedding gets treated as if it was one in a million, because frankly, it is. I only take on enough brides and grooms to make sure I can give you my all, every single step of the way. That's what you're investing in. Now, enough chit-chat.
