It's early for this, but Mr. T and I are setting up a meeting with a potential photographer next week. I don't want to give any details too early, but I like what I've seen of this person's work, so it would be great if it worked out. More on that later!

Re: photography, I like the pseudo "photo journalistic" style that is so popular at weddings these days. Yes, I want the family shots to frame and put up around the house, but I also love detail shots of the rings, flowers, getting ready, and the unposed shots that just seem to capture the feeling of the day much better than the "standing in a group looking at the camera" posed shots ever will.

Offbeat Bride had a little ad for J. Scott Photography, a photographer in Indiana, today. The ad featured a red-dress bride; I've decided I definitely don't want my skirt to look like a crumpled piece of paper. Hooray! I made a decision.

I also don't like how uncomfortable the bride looks here.

What I do love is this shot. LOVE it.

It speaks to the classicist in my soul.

Yes, that is a Bad Bustle. Ugh!

Photos are one thing I wish we'd done differently. We were rather over our (non-existent) budget, and I had a friend do it. Add tricky lighting at the Palace and Exploratorium and you have not-great photos. So I wish we'd gone out a little more on it. On the other hand, I DID NOT WANT some obnoxious photographer pushing us around all the time, orchestrating "candid shots." Oh well. Hope you can walk the line!

Also, to this day I have not completed our photo album, much less the one my mother-in-law feels entitled to. !!!
