Ask yourself this question: In a year, ten years, or twenty years after my wedding, “What will still matter to us?

Will it be the quality of the wine we chose, whether we splurged on the premium appetizers? The lavishness and quantity of bouquets? No. None of that will much matter. What will matter will be how vividly your photographs depict the authentic emotion – the love, joy, and togetherness shared on that special day between you and the most important people in your life. Period.

To learn more about how you can have Tobin Photography create photographs worthy of generations of your family’s preservation and admiration, please share some details about your wedding with us.

Your wedding photographs are your children’s birthright. They are literally the document of the genesis of your family’s story. Just let that wash over you.

Given this, it only makes sense to consider your wedding photography as an entirely different kind of expense, altogether. These pictures will be treasured family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation, used to tell the unique story of the beautiful beginnings of your love, your family. This is what has your photographs grow more valuable over time. The other products and services you purchase for your wedding are “here today and gone tomorrow. Poof! And this is what qualifies your wedding photography as the only real investment from your wedding day.

I know this because over the years I have encountered dozens of women, who, on seeing my photographs, have lamented, often through tears, that they don’t like their wedding photos and that they regret deeply not having made photography a higher budgetary priority during their planning process.

I urge you – whether or not it’s right for us to work together: don’t skimp on your photography budget. Regret ain’t no fun.
