INVITE ME TO YOUR WEDDING…SERIOUSLY
If you haven’t considered it already, you really should invite me to your wedding.
I DO have some killer dance moves. But no, that isn’t the reason I think you should invite me to your wedding.
As the wedding photographer, I try to ask all of my couples to actually invite me for a one simple reason.
When I am added to the guest list, you’ll remember to send me an invitation to your wedding.
That means I’ll have a copy of the invitation. In doing that, you are guaranteed to get pictures of your invitation suite.
95% of the time my couples forget their invitation suite on the wedding day. Hey, it happens! Those puppies are expensive, and we want to make sure that they are well documented.
If you invite me to your wedding, I’ll have the invitations so can do cute little arrangements including your flowers and rings. We can use the invitations to tell the story of the day, and to make sure your style is well documented. If getting published is a goal of yours, those detail pictures are a must have! Blogs and Magazines LOVE to see a well coordinated invitation suite!
“If getting published is your goal, you definitely need pictures of your invitation suite!”
Another benefit to remembering to invite me to your wedding is that we don’t have to take the pictures on the day of. If things are hectic on the wedding day, I will have my own invitation to take home with me. There, I can take pictures of it later, and without having to worry about losing your Mom’s only copy!
And besides, if you do just want to invite me to your wedding for my killer dance moves, I wouldn’t blame you!
