We have our photographers! We knew very early on that we wanted to ask our friends Lisa & Brandon to be our photographers but just like everything else, time kept getting away from us. Brandon and I have been friends since the fifth grade and as soon as I met his now wife I fell in love with her. Both are graphic designers and recently decided to start their own photography business. After their wedding Lisa started getting mentored by her wedding photographers and since then she has shot so many weddings, engagement shoots, couples shoots, boudoir shoots, etc. She and Brandon actually shot our engagement pictures last January too.
They put their deposits down as soon as they received our STDs and have been sharing in our excitement ever since. Because we knew she already had so many weddings booked for next year I was worried to ask her to spend part of her well deserved vacation working. I decided to write her a card telling her all the reasons why we want her to be our photographer but that I would understand if she needed this vacation. I found this adorable little card birthday card at Carlton Cards, removed the birthday part and added "Will You Be Our Photographer?" While together last Saturday she opened the card. We both teared up and she immediately said "YES! I've been hoping you would ask since the day you showed me your ring."
Mike and I could not be more excited to have them with us at our wedding and to have them take our pictures. Both of them are the people you want in your face and in your personal space all day long. I couldn't be happier they said yes.
Here's the card:
As mentioned in a previous post the store called and received a blush coloured Sorella Vita dress. I am headed to the store tomorrow with my mum and two of my bridesmaids to see the colour in person. They couldn't get the same dress in but I think this will do the trick as it is the same material as the dress we are looking to order. I am hoping to put down the deposits for the dresses if the colour is perfect. Fingers crossed!
