Why Hire a Professional Wedding Photographer.
A question we get quite often and it’s usually by Brides – Why should I hire a professional photographer? A wedding is usually a bride’s first budgeting test in a marriage and they feel a need to economize and demonstrate that the money is well spent. For some reason – there is really poor advice out there on a few wedding websites. Sure. There are a thousand ways to save a dollar on your wedding. Wedding photography is not one of them.
I hear these alternatives all the time –
My friend is a photographer and they’ll do it for free.
My Uncle Joe will do it, he has a camera.
Someone wants experience shooting a wedding.
A Professional – and will do it for $500.
Yes, you get what you pay for.
IF – these options resulted in timeless wedding images, there would be no professional wedding photographers. No show, lost photos, poor quality and drunk uncle are more typical outcomes.
A professional photographer is there for YOU.
As a professional we are guaranteed to show up on your wedding day. When you hire a professional, they are contractually obligated to perform! Will your friend flake out at the last minute – yes they will. Will you be able to hire someone on short notice in the middle of Summer? Probably not. A professional wedding photographer needs to run a good business. This includes the use of good contracts, information, pricing, well-articulated expectations and good communication.
A professional photographer has EXPERIENCE.
A professional photographer knows what to do, when to do it and how to do it. There is no trial and error. A pro will anticipate what is going to happen next and will be there. Your wedding day is not a learning experience. There are NO second chances for a wedding.
A professional photographer delivers you RESULTS.
You get what you PAY for. Hiring a professional ensures that you get great photos. Again, there’s a contract involved, and a professional is obligated to provide you with developed photos in a timely manner. A professional wedding photographer comes to a wedding armed with a large selection of equipment. This will include: a minimum of two professional camera bodies, lenses, strobes, batteries, light modifiers and alternative lighting sources.
A professional photographer builds a lasting RELATIONSHIP.
No worries about damaging your relationship. When working with a professional you will build a relationship with them. Personal relationships and friendships are strained when photos are of poor quality, delivered a year after the wedding or not there at all. Consider this for all aspects of your wedding. Hire a florist. Hire a caterer. Hire a DJ or Band. Hire an Officiant.
Your wedding day is one of emotion, passion, joy and excitement. It’s a happy time in one’s lifetime. You don’t need the any worries that your friend, uncle or novice is missing these lifetime memories. Hire a professional wedding photographer and never look back with regrets.
In the end – the cake will be eaten, the flowers will wither, music turned to silence and the only the photographs last forever.
Rumor has it…
Probably the best kept secret we have made. Hope everyone can make it over. We will announce the ribbon cutting soon.

Hours of Operation
Thursday through Monday, 10:00 – 6:00pm. Tuesday and Wednesday by appointment.
In the Uptown District of Port Townsend, WA. Only a couple blocks from Water Street, the Uptown area has a local feel with restaurants, services, stores, theater and the weekly Farmer’s Market. Port Townsend has a “vibe” that we love and remained firmly at the top of an international list of possibilities. Creative and “mystique” – it is a year-round attraction.
Having years of experience and mixed results using home based studio model, there is nothing that can replace a store front. We feel that a successful business is dependent on a physical location with the exposure, credibility that only “Brick & Mortar” studio can offer. We’ll be moving into a space with character, ground floor convenience and with good access and street parking.
Our aim is to create an ambience and experience in the studio, complete with Fine Art Gallery, comfortable Client Seating area and working Photography Studio. We even have our own Bathroom and Changing Area.
