|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!
