Hiring a family friend for wedding photos

Weddings

Wedding at Sutter Club SacramentoYesterday we spoke with a bride who’s sister hired a “family friend” to take their wedding photos… It turned out that the friend lost EVERY SINGLE PHOTO. Andy and I hear stories like this all the time, and it absolutely breaks our hearts. Every year, without fail, we get many calls from couples who skimped on wedding photography, and beg us to somehow fix their photos. But here’s the thing- we CAN’T go back and capture moments once they’re gone. We can’t magically “fix” bad photography, because it’s all about HOW (and if) the moment was captured.

Wedding moments are once in a lifetime- they must be carefully anticipated and captured artistically AS they happen. There are no re-do’s. There are no cheap-fixes.

Our belief in Quality over Quantity is more than just a tag line- it’s something that’s deeply engraved into how we live, how we run our business, how we SHOW UP for our couples & their families, and how we make investments in our own life.

We can confidently say- if you’re in the market for cheap photography, we’re not the studio for you. But if you value quality over quantity, and family over everything…. If you want to capture your legacy and want someone who has your back no matter what… Then we just might be your people.
