More than a Wedding Photographer: Why Hiring Me is the Best Decision You’ll Make

Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and hiring the right photographer is SO important in ensuring that every precious moment is captured beautifully. When you choose Kendra Martin Photography as your wedding photographer, you’re not just hiring a professional with a camera. You’re gaining a trusted friend, a calming presence, and a dedicated advocate who will go above and beyond to make your wedding day truly unforgettable. So today I want to explore all the incredible benefits you’ll receive by choosing me as your wedding photographer.

Creating a Photography Timeline

One of the key aspects of a successful wedding photography experience is creating a well-planned, detailed photography timeline. I understand the importance of capturing all the special in-between moments, and I will work closely with you and your wedding planner to ensure that enough time is allocated for photos. From the pre-wedding preparations to the reception, I’m going to make sure that every moment is accounted for, so you can relax and enjoy your day.

Supporting You Throughout the Process

I’m not just there for you on your wedding day but throughout your entire process. I’ll become your biggest fan and advocate when you book my services. I’ll answer all your questions (nothing is too dumb!), provide guidance, and offer recommendations for other vendors. My ultimate goal is to make you feel comfortable and at ease, knowing you have a trusted friend.

Keeping Your Wedding Day on Track

On your wedding day, I will do everything possible to ensure that your timeline stays on track. I understand that unexpected delays can happen, whether it’s due to makeup taking longer than expected, someone running late, or just plain human error. I have 15+ years of experience and have seen just about it all (oh, the stories I can tell!). Rest assured—I know how to adapt and make up for lost time. You’ll be taken care of. Heck, I’ll even do everything in my power to end your portraits early so you can join Cocktail Hour if you want!

Capturing Every Detail and Moment

Those teeny tiny details that matter so much to you? You know the ones… the ones you spent hours planning. I’ll capture them. From the intricate details of your dress and jewelry to the candid moments shared between your loved ones, I’m going to make sure that nothing goes unnoticed.

A Sneak Peek and a Gallery to Cherish

Within a week of your wedding, I will provide you with a sneak peek of 50-75 edited images. This sneak peek lets you relive your day’s magic and share a glimpse with your loved ones while you’re waiting on your full gallery. But that’s not all – I wholeheartedly believe in delivering a generous gallery of edited images. On average, I provide around 200+ edited images per hour of photography coverage. You can expect a mix of color and black-and-white images, so you have a diverse and stunning collection that truly reflects the emotions and beauty of your wedding day.

A Team Effort

I believe in providing the best possible experience for my clients. That’s why I always work with a second photographer and sometimes even a third if necessary. Doing so helps ensure that every angle and every moment is captured, giving you a comprehensive collection of images that tells the complete story of your wedding day.

Attention to Detail

I pay attention to every detail, from ensuring every hair is in place to checking zippers and pockets. I understand that the little things can make a big difference in your photos, and I will ensure everything looks perfect. You can trust that every image will be flawless and reflect the beauty and elegance of your wedding day.

Smooth Family (& Wedding Party) Photos

Family photos are an important part of any wedding album. I know how to make the process smooth and enjoyable… for everyone. Even cranky Aunt Mildred. I’ll create a family list for photos and guide everyone through the process, ensuring everyone is included, and the photos run seamlessly. I’ll even make sure your raucous groomsmen are behaving and enjoying themselves during photos. You’ll be able to relax and enjoy this special time with your loved ones.

Hiring me as your wedding photographer is a decision you won’t regret. I will do everything I can to make sure your wedding day is truly unforgettable. Every precious moment will be beautifully preserved. You’re going to have a big cheerleader in your corner. And as a recent bride told me, “I got so much more from hiring you than I thought I would. You’re like an extra wedding planner.”

Reach out today, and let me capture the magic of your wedding day.
