Vendor: Don't Skimp on Your Wedding Photography! :: Illinois Wedding Photographer

The folks at Southall Eden, a gorgeous wedding venue near Franklin, Tennessee, recently had this advice to offer brides who were setting their wedding budgets:

Let’s face it. Weddings are crazy expensive. I’m all about finding ways to save money, and there are lots of ways you can do so. But if you only splurge on one thing for your wedding, LET IT BE PHOTOGRAPHY. That’s right, I’m a venue owner and a stationery designer and I’m not telling you that your splurge item should not be one of those things, but photography. Why? Because its true! If you live in middle Tennessee, chances are you know someone who is a “photographer” and its tempting to hire them for cheap or even have them shoot your wedding as a wedding gift to you to save money, but hear me now and believe me later, DON’T DO IT!!!

Read the rest to see why.

What's true in Tennessee is true in Illinois--and everywhere else.  Do yourself a favor: educate yourself and hire the right person for the job. When you're looking through your wedding book (your photographer offers books, right?) years later and showing your grandchildren how you celebrated on your wedding day, you'll be glad you did.
