    as for the creative ones - i just let leigh and matt do their thing. i was looking for my shoes at some point and they were hanging from the shutters - i know leigh was up to something! i just can't wait to see all of the shots i DIDN'T know she took!
    actually ann i was prancing around in your shoes acting like i was the bride!

    heres my take on the whole picture list thing. i DO need a list of family/group shots you want if you want to make sure we dont miss any. that being said on DWs i find that list rarely makes it to me and thats ok because #1 its a much more laid back event (usually) and #2 there are usually fewer guests/family members to shoot so we just shout out - hey you come over here and be in the photo or you wont have a ride back to the resort. everyone pays attention to that

    what i dont need is a list of photos that say things like - bride and groom kissing, bride and groom leaving ceremony together, back of brides wedding gown, brides shoes, etc.... what i tell people is - if its happening, if it was there - i shoot it!!! now that doesnt mean im opposed to hearing id really like a pic of this or that. there have been a few times that brides wanted something very specific and told me and i made sure i got it. both times they were in fact shots i would have taken anyway - one was the bride getting dressed and one was the couple driving away at the end of the ceremony in a sassy sportscar. so im open but i agree with matt kim, if you start bogging me down with lists its going to be hard for me to do my thing and produce what you gals are used to seeing.

    so from now on just call me photoDIVA

      right... so, I was just curious if the brides that just got married and saw their pics, had any they regretted NOT doing!

            im sure that happens sometimes. at my wedding i forgot to get a more formal pic of me and my boys. i have a few that we are all three in just goofing around. i was a bad bride though and never got a list to matt of the formals i wanted. we just told everyone to scram that we didnt want the formals with and hollered - ok your turn - to those we did. im sure it drove matt crazy!
