I spent many years photographing weddings. I LOVED photographing weddings! Then my portrait studio got into overload, and I handed those wonderful gatherings back to other professionals.
Of late I am being contacted by more and more brides (some very disappointed) as to what they experienced with their wedding photographers. Some were requesting a re-shoot with me (yes, they still had their wedding dress!)
Some seeking assistance in relation to the creation of their wedding album.
I learned, to my astonishment, that some wedding photographers were handing over thousands of digitized images to their clients, and telling them to “pick their favourites”
… and from that short list their wedding album would be created.
An impossible task! Brides become totally overwhelmed. And, of course, the wedding album never gets completed.
As professional photographers I think we are falling down on the job. So I am back doing weddings. Doing it with the same level of care, quality and time that I offer my portrait clients.
To get a glimpse into that specialty, please view Helene Anne’s Weddings:
There you will find 8 fabulous tips to help you select the right wedding photographer for your needs.
On a final note: My wedding photography will be a combination of film and digital images. My promise: Not only to capture amazing images on your wedding day, but to work hand-in-hand with you to create that wedding album that so clearly reflects one of the most important days in your life!
