I HEART Elizabeth too! When we hired her back in June for our wedding, I figured I would get in contact with her a few months before. Little did I know that she is always thinking about her brides... she is so sweet she emails regularly with cute ideas she sees at other weddings. Also, I have emailed her a few times about things that I love in other weddings she shoots - on one occasion, she even got in touch with the bride to find out where she got her linens and centerpieces.

From what I can see, all the photographers you are considering look amazing! I am sure whoever you hire will make your wedidng look beautiful. If you still need to get in touch with Elizabeth, maybe I can help... I have a couple of email address for her. If you would like, I can PM them to you.

Thanks everyone for the great advice! I just wanted to update you guys on my decision... all the photographers mentioned are extremely talented and I don't think I would have gone wrong with any of them... but in the end I decided to go with Vincent, the associate photographer with Matt and Sol! I'm really happy with my decision and will definitely be posting pics after my wedding! I was able to view a lot of his prior work, and his pictures spoke to my FI and I the most... so artistic and creative, and it sounds like he's wonderful to work with. His prices are also really competitive for the quality of his work, and Matt and Sol have been so great to communicate with. Thanks again for all your advice... another crisis situation diverted thanks to BDW :)

Ann's right...

 

Having a photographer that's familiar isn't necessarily an advantage.

It is almost always more inspiring to shoot somewhere I've never been before... The important thing is to just make sure your photog has a little bit of time to familiarize him/herself with the area prior to the big day...the day before or even the day of should be just fine.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
