There is truly no greater compliment than when a client recommends us to friends. What’s even more special is when they recommend us to FAMILY! The joy of being a photographer to different family branches is amazing. Photographs become more valuable as time passes, sometimes being passed from generation to generation. The images we capture become a part of their family legacy in so many ways. It is such an incredible honor to be trusted with a family’s treasured events!
For us, this has been the year of the siblings. We photographed five weddings this year for siblings of previous clients and we have four more sibling weddings coming up in the year ahead. That is NINE families that loved their experience with us so much that chose to do it all again. That makes us INCREDIBLY happy! To do a second (and in one instance a third) wedding for a family is a pretty awesome experience.
When we shoot an event for a client, the relationship that develops is so important. It’s so much fun to get to know them and their families. The opportunity to revisit those families for another event a few years later makes those attachments so much stronger. We connect on a deeper level as we have the unique opportunity to watch the family grow and change. Little details as hearing when someone is expecting and then getting to see those babies grow into the next flower girls and ring bearers!
Since they already know what to expect when we work together, the focus shifts to what is really important: the story of the journey we are all on! We adore when we can bypass the normal work talk and jump right into reconnecting. It is such a privilege to be able to be a part of these families and to see them at the different happy occasions of their lives.
The Decisive Moment is very much a family of our own. Our group has been together for over a decade. Together, we have shared weddings, the birth of children, and even the heavy loss of loved ones. Because of our work family, we easily can relate to clients and their stories. We like to believe that our clients feel like they become a part of our family, just like we feel like we become a part of theirs!
