    That is so exciting, we had several of the same photographers in our mix too!!!! I loved that Katya and Rob (her fiance) would both be there to photograph for us.  I always wanted to have 2 photographers because they capture such a wide range of shots and emotions like both mine and FI's reaction walking down the aisle, shots of our guests and family during the ceremony etc.  I highly recommend getting in touch with Katya, she has been an absolute pleasure to communicate with and was so quick to answer any questions I had!!!!!!!  Best of luck deciding, be sure to let me know who you choose!!!! It's a tough decision but once you had it done man does it feel good!!!

      okay! I THINK I've got it narrowed down to 2...lol..Michael Weiler & HDC :)..M.Weiler was my original choice until I started 'seeing' others photos online so I may end up booking him as he has a videographer who works with him too. I love the idea of 2 photographers as you are getting!!! Katya's work is absolutely stunning!!! Mind me asking what pkg you went with? I'm tossed on if we should get the prints & book or just the CD...

          Has anyone had any experience with this?  Does it work?  Any idea where I would book this?  The hotel does not have "availabilities" on the website right now but I am told closer to the date they will.

           

          Any information would help!!!

                      I considered doing the "guest" day pass and just say they are friend with fancy cameras but I don't think it is worth the risk of them getting kicked out on my wedding day LOL

                      don't want to be stressed out so if I know everythings covered at least I'm safe!
