I’ve never met a couple who just want “good” or “average” wedding photos! Brides and Grooms are shelling out an average of about $40,000 nationally (average of TheKnot.com and Brides.com surveys), and can approach $100,000 in cities like New York. Even if you take 50% of that on a nice, but not over-the-top wedding, you still would want a professional photographer to get “great”, if not “wow” photos, right? You’d certainly want to leave with a great wedding photography experience, right? Why then spend so much money on a wedding that doesn’t get memorialized and curated with spectacular photos!?
So how do you and I make that happen?
There are many variables and moving particles, some which you have control over, some you don’t, that play into the relative success of a wedding. And by that I mean success as far as fun, food, dancing, decorations, music and entertainment, etc., but most importantly aesthetics. Optics. That is what you have left after spending the price of a luxury SUV on one night of celebration.

Eh vs. Wowza?
From having been part of hundreds of weddings, I could honestly say I know a thing or two about weddings. And I want to give you several (hopefully not rambling) thoughts about how to take it from Eh, to WOWZA! Buckle your seats, here they are in no particular order:
