This blog post has been on my heart for a while… in fact it’s something I often think about being a photographer. Life moves really quickly! As a kid all you want to do is grow up and get started with life but once life begins we all know too well how quickly life passes you by. There are a few events in life that are once in a life time moments…moments that just can’t be repeated.
My husband and I just had our first child a few weeks ago. We decided before the delivery to hire a birth photographer and I couldn’t be happier that we did. Memories are wonderful but having photographs seconds of my daughter after delivery or images of my husband and I meeting her for the first time are completely priceless. I am so thankful we spent the money and we’ll be able to share the images with her when she’s older.
The same is true for weddings. So often we see people asking for “cheap” wedding photographers. Anyone that knows me well knows I love a good bargain but the old adage you get what you pay for is a common saying for a reason. Sure, there are times to cut corners; let a family friend take experiment with their new camera to take family photos on a long weekend but weddings happen once, people. Brides spend months.. even years planning a wedding! Regardless of the amount of money spent on a wedding and the details put into the day the only thing you’ll have to look back on, show friends and family and someday pass on to your offspring are the photographs. We truly believe these photos become family heirlooms.
We’re not the photographers for everyone in Toledo and northwest OH and we don’t want to be. We do however want you to be able to share high quality photos of your biggest life moments to future generations. Do your research and find a photographer you trust with your family heirlooms.
Speaking of which, if you’re looking for a birth photographer or a wedding photographer in the Toledo area be sure to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
