I totally agree for the most part - I hired Leigh because I loved her work, and types of pictures she took, and her overall style. Like I actually told Leigh recently, I am all for letting her do her thing and getting out of her way! But with that said, I do think a bride may benefit from a list in some cases. Given my "unique" family situation, it isn't as obvious about what kinds of formal shots I need to capture. And I love the pj style - no doubt about it. But I also feel like I do have to get those posed formal shots, just because my family is so rarely in one spot, it's a great time to do so.

 

At my first wedding my photographer was amazing, I absolutely loved her work (Kathleen Day-Coen, I believe her name was). The marriage didn't last, but the pictures were stunning! But at that wedding, I totally forgot to take a picture with my now step-mother. My dad has been with her for at least 18 years (over 10 at the time of the wedding) and I totally forgot to get her in one of the family shots. I have felt guilty about that even since! I was so caught up in the day, I didn't even think about it. So, for those reasons, I think a list can help - even if it's just one that the bride keeps to herself as a checklist of photos that are important to her. Ya know?

Fabulous! I don't plan on using a list like that - but thought it might come in handy for those that do.

 

On a more important note - when do we get to hear about your contest? How many entries do you have? When will you announce the winner? I can't wait ... !

I agree with Jonathan on this. While I realize everyone has good intentions there is a reason why we all hire a professional photographer in the first place, they know what they are doing and we should yield to their professional creativity. I think everyone should research their photog and pick one whose style and creativity they like. I know it's so hard to let anyone else be in charge but sometimes we gotta do it. But I think Ann makes a good point that if you have some special shots you really want, you should keep a checklist just so you don't forget. And Ann I'm sure this time Leigh will get a beautiful shot of you and your step mother. And this marriage will last forever and you will be so happy.

Jonathan, would you be offended if we give you a couple of sample shots that we seen by another photographer that we would like to duplicate? I have 100% faith in Juan to take amazing pictures, and I know that I'll love them. With that said, I seen a couple of pictures that I fell in love with and (really just 2) that are unique that I'd like to duplicate. But I don't want to offend Juan by suggested that we take them. What are your thoughts on this?

I'd like to show sample pics to the photog not bc I want them duplicated, but more to express my FI and my personality. I don't get to spend much time with my photographer before the wedding so he might not get just how goofy/weird we are. I feel like by showing him that a ton of the pics I like are goofy he'll get me more and not be concerned about taking a lot of funny pics.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
