Last weekend, I married the man of my dreams. It was hands down the happiest day of my life thus far. I didn’t want it to end! We won’t be honeymoonin’ until the end of July, so that means back to work for Ryan and me (for now).
I wanted to take this opportunity to blog quickly about hiring a great wedding photographer. Time and time again, I stress to potential bride & grooms about how invaluable it is to invest in a great photographer: “I know it may seem like a lot of money now, but think about the return investment… Are you willing to pay a little more to have amazing photos that you’ll cherish forever or pay half as much and regret your decision in the long run?” Now, the weight of what I emphasize on a weekly basis only actually hit me the day after my wedding. I woke up and I said, “Why does it have to be over?!” Even yesterday in an email, my hubs said, “I appreciate more than ever now how important having amazing photos of the day is … I never want to lose these memories.” Amen to that. And that’s why we invested in FABULOUS wedding photographers (The Schultzes) AND videographers (Nathan Clendenin & Stephen Garrett of Cana Collective). I’m excited to see what they captured so Ryan and I can relive the day over and over again! For now, here are a few snaps that my wonderful maid of honor took with her iPhone. : ) (That’s my daddio in the bottom left corner!)
