So I am now looking for a photographer since I cannot win Jonathan's contest since my date is not available...anyway I found these people on the knot a while ago and they called me last night, I didn't realize they are a nation wide photography company and now I am worried they might be like the supercuts of the photography world. You know like the people who cannot have their own studio so have to work for a corporation?

What do you ladies (and guys) think. Especially those of you who are photographers...I am beginning to worry that all the good photogs are taken.

There are some great photographers on that list. Some of them are friends of mine.


I would HIGHLY discourage you from going with Bella. The reason is they are a very large company that hire photographers all over the country. Because they are big, they can not give you the one on one attention that individual photographers or smaller studios can give. Also, most of the photographers they hire are just starting out and using Bella as a way to build their portfolios, so they do not have much experience.


Ann listed some GREAT photogs. I'm more than willing to post your request and info in a forum I'm a member of for wedding photographers, which many of the photographers listed are also a part of.


You will be able to find someone. We'll help you. Sorry it didn't work out for my giveaway though. :-(

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
