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.

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!?
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.

That is what you have left after spending the price of a luxury SUV on one night of celebration.

Eh vs. Wowza?
