Professional Wedding Photography - there IS a difference!

 

A few years ago, a camera manufacturer ran a series of ads on TV featuring actor Ashton Kutcher roaming about during an outdoor wedding, taking snapshots of the various attendees.  Snap.  Snap.  Every picture beautifully lit.  Every picture an artistic wonder.  

Although it was obvious that Kutcher posseses only a minimum knowledge of Photography, the camera manufacturer led the viewer to believe that anyone could take incredible pictures if they just owned their brand of camera.

           Wow.

 

It's a fun idea to get sucked in to.  

Similar victims of this sort of marketing strategy may sound something like this: 

             "Buy these golf clubs.  Hit every shot like a Pro",       

                      or ...

            "Use these pots and pans and cook like Paula Dean!"

 

The problems?   You don't have a Pro's golf swing.   You really don't know how to cook all that well.

 

As much as I like Ashton Kutcher as an actor, he may be partially responsible for some of the many disappointments Brides have experienced by hiring an "enthusiast", rather than a skilled Professional. 

 

Professional Wedding Photography is very similar.  A camera is a tool.  It's only a tool.  Having the newest and best-est, most tech-iest camera only means ... someone has a nice tool in your hands with which to create.  

 

Similarly, when on location, I've found many homes with a beautiful piano in the living room.  When asked "Who plays?", I usually find a family member with a somewhat basic, rudimentary level of skills.   It's really nothing more than a pastime, and very, very few play well enough to offer their services professionally - on a wedding day.  For a once in a lifetime occasion.

 

You've planned your day to the last nuanced letter.  Now memorialize the moment with unmatched Wedding Photography from a trusted Professional.

Wedding Photography RCP style

 

Every now and then Robert Charles Photography has the privilege to work with a family over the course of a number of years.  This is the case with Jessica. 

A number of years ago, we had the opportunity to photograph Jessica for her Senior Pictures.  Later we created a family portrait for her family.  Still later, we photographed her brother Cory's Senior Pictures.  And just a few weeks ago we had the chance to photograph her wedding. 

Jessica was a delight to work with!  She and her (now) husband, Kyle, gave us the opportunity to create images which will be treasured for the rest of their lives.  Here are some of those images:
