We really splurged on photography and landed an amazing photographer. I stalk their blog every day and am just WOW’d, not only by their photos but by the actual weddings they photograph.
Now, I am having bad nerves that our wedding is going to look crappy compared to all the awesome ones they shoot. Also, it seems like all the people are totally beautiful. I don’t want them to be disappointed to have our wedding on their blog.
Please tell me that because they are so good, it makes the weddings look good too? Anything to calm me 🙂

@SarahSmilesDec28:If you like the ideas and designs for your wedding then it is perfection. You have no reason to feel insecure. A little lighting and a good camera can do wonders. Look at what it does for movie stars…everything is not as perfect as it appears. That’s why we pay a little extra for those professionals who know how to make things look a little bit better;0) Relax.

Okay, lady~ get out of my head!! This is the SAME concern I had and I promise you- that amazing photographer will make your wedding look fabulous no matter what happens.
Everything that could go wrong, went wrong with my day. We DIY’d and my mom decided to not pay attention to my plans and just, well, wing it. Nothing turned out right, I had dingy looking ivory flowers (instead of varying shades of pink) on my ivory linens, so that was a colorless bomb. My now Darling Husband set-up the sound system and put giant speakers at the FRONT of the chapel, so we were literally framed by big, black electronics (no photo op there). I could go on and on, but my photographer managed to find waht was right and turn the whole thing into an amazing night… he/she will capture the emotion of the day and those little things you don’t notice, and turn them around for pictures you will treasure forever. Try not to compare to everyone else’s pics… maybe those other people on the blog looked at themselves and thought the same thing. We’re way harsher on our own self than others.
Trust your photographer.

I am hoping ours will at least be “different”. They shoot a lot of hotel or backyard fancy summer weddings. We are going for a rustic winter thing in a lodge.
Thank you for the reassuring words girls.

I’m SO glad someone else said this!! I know this is an older post, but I was thinking the EXACT same thing!! The weddings our photog usually shoots are AT A MINIMUM $15,000. These brides go ALL OUT. And while it shows, I don’t want to spend THAT much morey on our wedding. I’d rather remodel a bathroom or start an upgrade on our kitchen.
I also feel like what you start spending so much, you lose sight of what it’s about!
