To Splurge…..and to Splurge Knot.

A recent article entitled “Till Debt Do You Part” talked about the splurges and the necessaries as well as the budget busters and unnecessaries for your wedding. Of course, what this article and many other articles fail to discuss is that there ways to save and splurge AND stay within your budget AND allow you to have your dream wedding.

Wedding planning is an exciting time…..but it doesn’t have to break the bank!

One point that was made is that photobooth is great entertainment. We wholeheartedly agree. In the 10 seasons we’ve provided this service, we’ve NEVER heard anyone say, “I wish I had saved the money and not booked a photo booth.” NEVER! And, what’s even better than that is you can book a photobooth with us for a few dollars per guest. Even better than that, YOU get to keep a print of each session in the booth in an autographed scrapbook. What favor provides THAT? Three cheers for the photobooth!!!!

Beautiful photos don’t have to be a budget buster. We have to equipment and the experience to make you photos memorable.

Another topic was photography. THIS is where it gets a little too black and white (pardon the pun). Price is NOT always a guarantee that you will get what you want. And we prove it over and over. Check out a gallery or two (or more) and see the quality, the consistency, THE FUN, and the encompassing of many different styles that make up a wedding day photography shoot with us. AND, you get print rights, an online gallery with FREE downloads and low price purchase options AND an album. And, while we’re on this topic, why not add the video. A photographer and a videographer who work together will provide you memories that will last a lifetime….at a reasonable cost.

So, when you’re planning on tying The Knot, why not splurge the cost effective way. Give us a call and we’ll help you have it all without spending it all.

Engagement Shoots and why we love them!

Valentine’s Day is February 14th.  It is said to be one of the busiest days for proposals.  So, first off, let me congratulate all of the newly engaged. Your engagement is a special time—enjoy it!

Congratulations to all couples who are getting engaged this Valentine’s Day!

 

Why should we do an engagement shoot?

Why not!  OK…you need a little more convincing.  Think about it.  How many “selfies” do you have on your phone?  What’s the quality of those selfies like?  When you got the ring, did you hold the phone up and take a snap?  It’s a perfect shot, right?  Doubtful!!!  How about a sharp, vivid, beautiful picture showing your love for each other in a fun or beautiful setting?  Your big news should be shouted to the world…why not announce it in style!

What is an engagement shoot like?

An engagement shoot can be a little like a choreographed date.  Walk this way, sit next to each other here, tell each other you love them…KISS, and repeat.  In between, I like to chat about where you’re at with your wedding plans, how beautiful/interesting the location we chose, etc.  It should be a fun hour.  The most fun will be sharing your engagement photos.

Aren’t we going to have enough pictures taken on our wedding day?

Sure.  You’ll have a lot of images—a lot of memories from your wedding day.  BUT…you won’t look the same, or feel the same on your wedding day.  So, why not capture a time that’s a little less of a “whirlwind” and a little more about why the two of you got together in the first place.

It’s about the two of you…and why you’re getting married in the first place!

We’re ready for an engagement shoot. What’s next?

Pick your season.    Are you spring/fall outdoor people?  Are you summer in the city?  Maybe you LOVE a good snowball fight!

Pick your location.  A famous landmark, a covered bridge, a cozy cottage, or a quiet park.  The options are endless!

What can we do with these images?

Plenty!  You can use them for Save The Dates, include one or two in a wedding program, decorate your tables at the reception, create a signing book…and, of course, decorate your together home.

Oh yes…you MAY even want to get rid of that “selfie” you are using on social media 😉

Why do WE love them?

WE love them because it’s an opportunity to work with you BEFORE your big day!  It’s a more casual encounter…a more relaxed setting.  It gives us a window on your world.  And we hope it makes you just that much more comfortable with your decision.  You made the right decision—each other.  We hope your decision to chose US was just as right for you 😉
