Wedding update: Photographer booked & Guest List Hell [Jul. 8th, 2011|08:55 pm]
We booked our photographer yesterday!

We're using Albina Campos Photography.

We're not planning on doing our engagement pictures until late November/early December, because we want to do them as close to our 7 year (yep, we'll have been together 7 years this November 30th!) anniversary as possible. So don't be expecting to see those any time soon.

Joe and I are thinking about where we want to do those, as well as where we want to do our actual wedding photos. For engagement, we're either going to do Woodward Park or maybe go up to Shaver for a few hours. It would be SO PRETTY in November/December. For actual wedding pictures, we're still scouting areas, and so is our photographer, but we're considering going to Old Town Clovis, which could make for some very interesting, beautiful pictures.

She wants us to think about what poses and different things we want to do for pictures, and I have NO CLUE what to do. I'm going to really be looking at wedding pictures online, bridal magazines, and asking around for ideas. But I told her I want a lot of organic pictures- I love pictures that aren't too posey. Pretty much our whole wedding party is full of personality, so I want that to shine through.

We also finished the guest list, and it was every bit as hellish as most people have told me. I admit, I went a little crazy (okay, a lot crazy), but we're at 186 now and completely comfortable with the people we are, and aren't, inviting. We unfortunately cannot invite everyone, which sucks but it is what it is.

Now I need to start working on a time line for the day of, find a caterer, get a DJ, and a ton of other things. Thankfully, I still have a little over 10 months, and a lot of help!

IMO you should have a mix of traditional poses and random/goofy stuff you two enjoy doing together. One couple I knew were into racing. So one of the pics the bride was in her dress doing a burnout on one of the bikes. Some say it's trashy, but you can tell they were having a ton of fun.

I actually love stuff like that, and could care less if other people think it's trashy. Great idea =)

Before wedding pictures in OTC or after because that seems kinda far from
Your venue to go and come back. Just a thought, I don't care either way, OTC or Tower I think could both be cute.

We'd take pics in OTC before the wedding, then all our wedding party pictures after the wedding would be at the venue so we don't have to go anywhere else.

I love the idea of fall pictures! That's such a great time of year for photographs.
Google ideas for photographs. That's what I've been doing. lol.
Guest lists suck! We had to go from 200+ to 150..
Good luck with the rest of the stuff!
