During my client consultations, I try to remind how important your wedding pictures are and to be not short sighted about the photography aspect of your wedding. Not only to you, but to your children and grandchildren as well. Sometimes the desire to cut budgets drives clients to cut down on their wedding photography budget, but arguably it is one of the only things left after your wedding and IMHO one of the most important. So I am biased, but for a reason. Considering many people spend over a thousand dollars a year on fancy coffee, good photography is a great investment that keeps giving back.
This is from Wall Street Journal’s Big Picture Blog:
“When they fled Iraq, many refugees were forced to leave with only the barest of necessities. While many of the Iraqi refugees in Jordan hope they will be admitted into the U.S., that prospect is unlikely. In the first five months of 2007, the U.S. admitted only 69 Iraqi refugees.”
