My fiancé and I decided when planning that venue, catering and florals were the most important things to us. For my photography was too but my grandma said her family friend could do it for us and for really cheap so I took her up on the offer .. I so regret it 🤦🏼♀️
We had our engagement photos with him in September and there is 4 out of 165 that I like. He’s very awkward and was wven asking us what poses we should do !? So I had to get my Pinterest out and show him!
I see all these beautiful engagement shoots on Instagram and it makes me so sad I won’t have pictures with my fiancé like that. We will never get to relive this time in our lives! Anyway! So my big main of concern is the wedding not only and am I going to be with this awkward guy all day from 7am to 9pm but the day is time sensitive he needs to make sure he is banging out photos and knowing what to do!! He hasn’t done many weddings from his portfolio on his website looks like he’s done 5 lol I wish I took my time finding a good photographer in my price range. I can’t back out now as I hired him in February and he’s a family friend.. so because I was concerned with all of this lol .. This is probably a crazy bride moment but I made him several collages photos in each category from details, getting ready , reception.. you name it! Of every shot I wanted and photos to go with it. In the email I told him it doesn’t have to be these exact shots Ofcourse but I wanted him to get the vibe I’m going for and what kind of photos I would like!! I already know I’m crazy for doing this. But I already payed him for engagement shoot that I hate and regret and I would be devastated if it would happen to our wedding photos! He was actually a great sport and responded with thanks alyx this is awesome! 😂🤦🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️Anyway I leave all you new brides with this tip.. make sure you take your time choosing each vendor don’t jump on booking someone just because you think it’s a great price! Their are so many vendors out there now a days, pick someone who you can vibe well with! Especially if your going to be with them for the entire day of your wedding 😬😬😬
