Heellloooooo beautiful ladies and gentlemen,
Today my plan is to encourage you to fly your photographer out to your wedding. Ok, here we go.
Your wedding is the most, if not one of the most, important days of your life. You are literally becoming one with another person, FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. This is a moment you want to capture. This is the prequel to your movie, Life, starring you and possibly your children… Too much for now? ok, let’s backtrack to your wedding being the start of a new chapter in your life.
Just like you would wait for the right person and not settle for just anyone when it comes to your future spouse, you should be the same way with your future photographer. Once you fell in love with the right one, no matter what sacrifice it was, it was worth it. The late night phone calls, the ridiculously expensive gifts, the long-distance traveling, you name it, nothing was too much for your sweetie. You should have the same mentality when it comes to booking someone to capture your wedding photos. You’re entrusting them with this special moment that you will show others and hopefully decorate your house with. The right photographer is worth flying out to your wedding.
But I don’t want to pay that much.
Can’t I just hire a local photographer?
I’m already paying so much for my destination wedding, won’t it be the same if I just hire a local photographer?
My beautiful friends, I say this with all sincerity, you pay for what you get. Don’t make the money you already invested in your wedding be in vain. As the saying goes “the faintest pencil is better than the sharpest memory”, it applies in this case as well. Come the wedding day the only thing you’re going to be focused on is your significant other. It’s going to be such a hectic day for you. You’re going to miss some reactions or even forget over time who said what in their toast to you both. With the right photographer there, you’ll be able to look back on the wedding and see family member’s reactions to you walking down the aisle, saying I do, and the ecstatic faces of your parents seeing you two ride off into the sunset.
So in conclusion, the money is worth it, the memories are worth it and most importantly your significant other is worth it.
