5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Professional Wedding Photographer

IMG_6002

Full Disclosure: If you haven’t noticed, I AM a Professional Wedding Photographer.  So this post is naturally a little biased.  However, Professional Wedding Photographers are more than just photographers for a Bride to Be.  We consult, we calm, we lend a hand, and we are involved in all the details.  That said, I see so many Brides go with a family member or friend for their wedding photography and it breaks my heart.  Not just because their pictures might not be great but because there is so much more to a true professional than just the pictures.

Erika & Travis Get Hitched!

_MG_4564

I have absolutely been DYING to share this wedding!  Seriously, I’ve been on the edge of my seat waiting for everything to get wrapped up so I could share it.  I am in love with the location, details, emotion, all of it.

Erika and Travis’ wedding was absolutely stunning.  It was one of those weddings that you open up your favorite Wedding Magazine and fall in love with.  All the details were perfect from the champagne and gold colored bridesmaids gowns, to pops of pink and fushia in the bouquets.  However, as anyone knows who has helped plan a wedding, it looked amazing and effortless due to lots of planning, and hard work from friends and family.  But what better way to celebrate a union of two people than to have everyone involved?  That’s really the perfect word to sum up this wedding, FAMILY.  Erika and Travis are both huge family people whether its through blood or close friends.  Their love and compassion radiated over the whole ceremony.  I really can’t put it into words.  So without further ado…Travis & Erika’s big day.  Congrats guys!

Baby Brennan

I’m not going to lie, I’ve been wanting to photograph this kid since before he was born.  When I found out Heather was pregnant, I knew this kid was going to be sweet and adorable, just like his parents.  So as soon as Brennan came into the world, we booked a session for when he was about 6 months old.
