It's no secret that the wedding industry has become fairly saturated with photographers in the last ten years. Equipment has gone down in price and it's more accessible than ever. It seems like everyone and their uncle is doing it! (That being said, your uncle has a pretty sweet camera and I think he got some fantastic photos on that last family vacation.. just saying). In all seriousness, when deciding on a photography service in a market with a lot to choose from, it's important to hear what other people just like you are saying. Knowing how to compose a photograph is one thing but having the knowledge and experience of shooting a wide variety of weddings, how to work with different personalities, and bending over backwards for your clients... That's something only experience can teach.
I treat every single client like I would an important relationship and because of that people are saying some pretty awesome things!
