You’re engaged and excited to get married! Woot woot! There’s so much celebrating going on, so much prosecco being poured, and you are enjoying every moment of it. That is until you realize there are so many decisions to be made when it comes time to start planning your actual wedding. Today I’m kicking off a series on your wedding photography investment with the goal of easing some of that stress for you.
In this series I’m excited to share some insider info about your wedding photography investment. It’s so much more than just a number and by the end of this series, I hope you take a big sigh of relief about that! I want to leave you feeling confident and excited about the investment you’re making.
To start the series I’m going to kick off by sharing why I love referring to the time you spend and the payments you’ll make towards your wedding photography investment as just that: an investment. I don’t refer to it as a ‘price’ or ‘cost’ because those two words have a pretty negative connotation associated with them, and there is nothing negative about spending time on or paying for wedding photography!
Your wedding photography investment shouldn’t ‘cost’ you anything and you’re not paying the ‘price’. You’re investing in it just like you would a sturdy, well made piece of furniture or an exquisite piece of jewelry. If you really think about it, at the end of your days, what are you passing along to your children, nieces, and nephews? Probably that sturdy piece of furniture, your exquisite jewelry, and your wedding images. All pieces worthy of investment because you want them to stand the test of time.
And your time leading up to your wedding is precious. If you select a quality, professional photographer who is focused on giving you a great experience working with them, your time will be invested well. That’s just another item to consider when making your wedding photography investment.
Next week I’m going to share more on this topic, specifically about one important, intangible piece of your wedding photography investment: your experience with your photographer on your wedding day. Check back in next Wednesday for more on that! This stuff is good y’all! I’m so excited to share!
