    Photography is extremely important to both my fiance and I for our wedding day. Not only will it capture every detail that we would want to remember, but it's one of the most important ways to look back @ the wedding day and remember!! I look forward to one day showing my children and grandchildren pictures of how wonderful the day was, how beautiful I looked and how great their father/grandfather looked. I think it's def a very important aspect of any wedding, but especially a destination wedding since so many beautiful and romantic pictures can be captured during the moment. Photography is very important to my fiance, as it is one of his favorite hobbies of all time. What better way to make his wedding day extra special then to have someone there to capture all our moments together, and with our family and dear friends by our side.

      Wedding photography is the most important thing to me.. (Besides my groom showing up at the alter.. I can't have wedding photos without him ;) )  It is the first thing I researched since getting engaged in June.  My fiance is well aware and supportive of my love for pictures, and even went out of his way to have our engagement photographed in front of the Eiffel Tower. (By his mother who had NO CLUE he was proposing)  The photography is important to me because those are the pictures tha will be hanging on the walls in our home for the rest of our lives.  Those pictures will someday be the only reminder of our love to the future generations of our family.  My grandfather recently passed away and the funeral home created a slideshow.  As my grandmother sat in front of it, crying as she watched the pictures of their wedding scrolled by, I couldn't help but notice the love they had for each other.  They continued to have that love until the day he passed away.  For people who barely knew them to comment on the love observed in a photo from 67 years ago is remarkable.  I want my photographer to have the ability to capture that same love in my photos. I work as speech language pathologist, and have worked with the elderly population.  I create memory books for those suffering from Alzheimers and Dementia.  A memory book is a photo album of pictures and remnants that can remind people of happy times when their memory is declining.  They may forget their spouse from day to day, but the look on their face when seeing a photo from their wedding day is priceless.  I want to be able to look at my wedding photographs and think back to the day and recall.. the color of my flowers, the fabric of my dress, the tears of joy in the eyes of my guests, and the love shared between my future husband and I.

        My wish in life is being able to freeze every moment in time that I spend with my loved ones, especially with my husband to be, who I've loved every day for the past 8 years. He is so supportive and loving and supports my thirst for life.  He lifts me up and lets me shine, always.  Capturing our happiest moments together on our wedding day as our biggest supporters and cheerleaders are by our side is priceless and something that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.  I cannot wait to share the day with him, stare into his eyes, have his arms wrapped around me, and finally be his Mrs.. And this is why I think life and wedding photography is important.

          Other than marrying the man of my dreams, I think everyone would agree the photography is the MOST important thing at a wedding! I have been into photography since I was 13 and there's so many amazing things you can do with pictures now days! This is going to be the best day ever and I don't want to miss a thing. If I could hire 10 photographers to come I would so they could get it all from every angle and every expression!

              Wedding photography is one of the most important things on your wedding day.  So many brides tell me how hectic that day is that you really don't get to enjoy it or look around.  I am hoping with our destination wedding our day won't be so crazy but even if it is you have your wedding pictures to look back on that day and remember all the love that surrounds you. And they are not only a keepsake for you but for your guests as well.

                Wedding Photography is the most important aspect of my wedding. Most guests would say the food, or the music, don't get me wrong those things are very important the DAY of the wedding. The reason why the pictures are as important as they are is because that is the only peice of your wedding that you will have forever (well unless you decide to freeze your wedding cake topper and forget about it of course). Wedding photos can be shared with anyone and everyone who was not able to be part of your special day, can't say that about the food or music.

                  Photography is so important to me because it captures those memories that you will want to remember 10 or 40 years from now. I know the day will go by so fast and to have pictures that I love would mean the world to me. It is also important to me to have pictures of that day to show our children and to remember how happy we are together and the promises we made to each other.

                      Photography is the most important feature in a wedding in my opinion.  People will forget the food, the cake, the music but pictures last forever.  Good photography is not hard to come by but amazing photographers who capture real moments is difficult to find especially for those on a budget.

                      I would faint if I won this package.  
                      The reason why I am doing a destination wedding is because my family couldn't afford a wedding back home. So I am draining my savings to pay for a destination wedding and pay for my poor relatives to come witness my special day.

                      I am hoping to marry next year, either March, April or May. I have seen Mr Samuel's work it is jaw dropping. I love how he can capture the moment as it happens and is a story teller.  I would be honored if he was my photographer!
