    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 ... !

          lol I won't say how many entries I have. There should be more that will post their entries as well so you'll be able to see those.

          I will announce the winner on the 31st. Keep those entries coming ladies!!!

                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.
