@MeeShell:  I’m actually a portrait photographer, but this year I’m second shooting for MY wedding photographer and she is doing our big day for free πŸ˜‰ They are so fun but it really makes it hit home when you are shooting another couple’s wedding two weeks before your own

@conkin420: We’re having a DIY photobooth also and I’m actually planning on sending a copy of everyone’s pictures out with their thank you cards πŸ™‚ Possibly even as a magnet, so no favor at the wedding but a fun little memento after πŸ™‚

 

9 days, ladies!

@MeeShell:  It’s been a hobby since high school, so about 7 years (man, I’m old) But I just started doing it more seriously maybe two years ago. I intitially started because of my interest in graphic design, which was my major in high school!

Weddings are a LOT of pressure/stress and lighting situations you may not be familiar with, I definitely would not want to be a primary shooter lol, but if you can find a photographer in your area, offer your services for free for a couple weddings and just tell them you’re interested and want to get your feet wet as a second shooter. A lot of them are very helpful πŸ™‚

@MeeShell:  Crap here too. Predicting rain for Saturday, yay πŸ™ ! UGH!!  I’m pretty bummed and hoping they change the forecast. Last night I didn’t even get on line or watch the news. I put all the candy jars together for our candy buffet. Finished the escort cards. Boxed it all up and it’s ready to go to the caterer today. Can’t wait to have my dining room back. Tomorrow my dress, which was supposed to be ready saturday but needs to be taken in more. She swears I lost weight, I swear she didn’t take it in last time. lol  Thursday will be my only relaxing day and I plan on cleaning the apartment. Friday is pick up bff from airport and go go go……  

 

Good luck to everyone!!

Luckily, We have a perfect 72 degree forecast with 0% chance of rain. But I’m in Texas and that could change in about five seconds.

 

Also, can we talk about how BOTH OF MY PARENTS, MYSELF, AND MY MAID OF HONOR are all sick?!?!?!

@SoonToBeMrsRiley:  Forecast here has changed and it’s looking a lot better so fingers crossed. OH NO about everyone being sick. Do you think you’ll all be well by saturday?  I’m dying with allergies and this morning someone asked if I was getting sick, I’m like no I won’t even entertain that idea it’s allergies. LOL!!  ARe you sick with colds, flu, ??

@SoonToBeMrsRiley:  No major issues on our day. Photobooth didn’t bring props and scrapbook but made us pay for these things. Nasty email has already been sent. lol  Other than that the only bad thing I can say is we didn’t plan enough time for pictures and there’s a few pictures I really wanted that we didn’t get. But I enjoyed every single minute of my day. I had the best time and if I could get someone to pay for it I would do it all over again in a heart beat. Different photobooth company and an extra hour for pictures!

@SoonToBeMrsRiley:  Our day was perfect! My son was fussy during the ceremony, but my brother-in-law pushed him in the stroller to calm him down, my son’t shirt collar was too tight and wouldn’t button so he couldn’t wear the tie I had made for him, he also was freaking out during our first dance so I ended up holding him for the last half of the dance- everyone thought it was adorable we all danced as a family. Totally minor issues- was such an amazing day!!

we got our photobooth props for like $4 from party city and I set up my camera and a backdrop and made our own photobooth πŸ™‚ some of the pics were super cute.

My photographer partner couldn’t stay long BECAUSE SHE BOOKED ANOTHER SHOOT wtf?! I know I didn’t pay her as much as most brides but she offered that price and we are personal friends so I was a bit offended.

HOWEVER, We did a first look and as soon as DH turned around he started crying…which sent me of crying… so I probably wouldn’t have gotten good pics anyway lol

 

The only part that makes me sad is I’ve gained quite a bit of weight in the past couple years and I looked like a fat pregnant cow. >:-|

 

Other than that, it was a perfect day πŸ™‚
