I jsut found out today that one of my dad’s good friends (who is an amatuer photographer) said that he would do our wedding photography as a wedding gift.
FI and I didn’t want to pay $1000 for a photographer anyway (we are trying to keep the entire wedding budget around $3000). I am just so happy right now!!!!!! Everything is really working out for us, and we are so blessed to have the friends and family that we do!

Question though, have you seen his work?

@SamanthaLovesJames: Not of weddings, but I have seen his other photos and they are beautiful. Although he will actually be doing a wedding at my location in July.

@pengoala: Thank you! I am soooo excited. As of right now, my cousin is also taking care of the DJing/music/sound in general, and the officiant is a family friend. I am also wearing my mothers dress, so everything is really working out.
And we are really low maintenance, so we would rather save money (we are also broke 21 year olds) than spend a lot and get further in debt.
