My mom wants to be the photog...

Recommended Posts

I agree with all those suggestions. She doesn't want to have to remember your wedding from behind a lense. Then just hire someone and let her know the pictures are all taken care of. I think she just wants to be helpful and feel needed. Can she help with something else?

I can relate to this because before my wedding my dad wanted to be our videographer for the day, he even bought an expensive camera etc... I just blurted out to him "no way!" and told him he had to be my dad at the wedding. He was to walk me down the aisle, give a speech and be there for me during the day, but in no way to be "working". So that was the end of that. I don't think you need to sugar-coat it at all. Just tell her that she's supposed to enjoy the wedding and being a photog is very involved and would mean that she wouldn't really be able to participate in alot of the wedding activities, so you don't want that.

My fiance actually wanted to be the photographer! Don't ask me how he thought he was pulling that off, but I told him there is no way. Your mom is such an important part of your wedding and she will realize (just like my fiance) that they need to be a part of everything that happens and not hidden behind a camera.

I'm imagining many self portraits, lol!! but it would probably be an awesome shot of you walking down the aisle. wink.gif

It sounds like you ladies have this covered. Best of luck breaking the news, and I'm sure after some though you're mom will agree to just be MOB that day. :)

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
