    There are a lot of ivory lace dresses in style right now for under 100 bucks. You could do kind of an informal wedding look to save the money?  I would skip it if you’re going to have to spend a fortune on the clothes, but if its free photos and inexpensive looks I would go for it.  DH would hate the idea though lol.

    I had a friend of mine do my TTD pictures and they turned out wonderful! (I used one for my avatar!) She was just getting into photography as well and I was really really happy to help a friend out plus get some awesome pics. I seriously am in love with my TTD pictures and some of them even rival my actual wedding pictures 🙂

    I think it would be cute to do for an anniversary

    @GreenEyedMoon:  The only problem I would have with doing it 9 mths after the wedding, is that I gained all my weight back already :S

    Seriously though, I have a SIL who is trying to break in to wedding photography, and I offered to do this for her (we eloped, so I couldn’t have had her take the wedding pics) pull out the dress, get all fancied up again… who would’t want to? No paint for me though, I’m not crazy about those TTDs, but outside, maybe playing in some leaf piles?  Awesome.

    Anywho, I vote for getting in touch and seeing if she’s really interested, then get the ball rolling with finding a cheap dress.  DH doesn’t need to be in the pics, he also doesn’t need a suit really, just some dress pants and a shirt with out without a tie would be fine.  It’s supposed to replicate the day after the wedding anyway right?

    I voted no, because if you are talking about a money investment and things are tight for you I wouldn’t spend money on someone who’s just starting out.  Go for a professional service and do it right.
