- Wedding: May 2011
My fiance and I went and opened our joing savings account just for the wedding today YAAAY! We are payin for the whole thing ourselves which is going to be hard but we will make do, I dont want anything big any way!! On our way home he asked me if I had given it any thought as to who I wanted as our photographer for the wedding. Well sense I was in highschool I knew exactly who I wanted to do my photography, how ever her costs would be at least half of my estimated budget so I know it is out of the question. I being a photographer myself will have to have my wedding photos done the way that I see fit…IE…I’m anal about the idea. He dosn’t want to have to pay for a photographer because I have a good friend is a photographer and he wants me to ask her to do our photos…how ever I would like her to be able to enjoy my wedding. He also mentioned his cousin who is a photographer doing it….Which would be fine, but she shot some photos at his sisters wedding in October which I did the photography for…and her photos were TERRIBLE imo…its some peoples style deffinitly not mine. So I told him I would rather have no photos then absolutely terrible pictures of our wedding…with peoples limbs cut off and terrible angles of every one. I know I am being stuborn but in my list of priorities…it goes Venue…Photography. His is more Venue, food liqour, clothing…so on and so forth photography means nothing to him. Am I wrong for wanting a good photographer at my wedding? Not my dream photographer…but deffinitly not some one whos work makes me want to take them by their shoulders and shake them. Does any one have suggestions or thoughts? If I am being a monster (I am an only child I’ve been known to throw a tantrum or too) please dont hesitate to let me know. Thank you Bee’s for reading this! Opinions would be appreciate!!
