Thrifty Thursday.... TIP

I saw this pix over at The Wedding Chicks
I thought it was so sweet. Made me think of my own wedding day. Its going to be 10 years ago, wow, what a ride its been! At this point I wanted to go back and look at my wedding photos but alas! I dont have any!!! SOB SOB SOB, can I break for a tissue...

Its true. We have no photos of our special day except for our books of proofs which has a huge logo stamped over the center of each and every one of them. I'm sad, very sad.

So, my tip for today is your Photographer is NOT where you want to be thrifty!!! Im not saying that was the problem with my photographer, he was a great photographer. But learn from me, you dont want to look back 10, 15 or even 25 years from now and say I wish I had my wedding photos, like I am right now.

Look for a reputable photographer, someone who has your sense of style and an eye for photography that you can appreciate and work with. Trust me on this, no matter what the cost (within reason) they will be worth every penny! Ask around, get recomendations from your friends, meet with the photographer.
You'll look back one day and thank me.

Now, heres the thrifty part. How about buying the disposable cameras for your tables? Your guests can capture your wedding reception through their eyes. Be prepared for some of your cameras to walk off and to have numerous floor, ceiling or even under the table shots. This route is a shot in the dark but may pay off to get some great guest's point of view pictures. Check out efavormart for some under $3 disposable cameras.

Is there a happy ending to my photoless wedding?? Well this year for our 10 yr wedding anniversary we plan to have a small vow renewal and to make it up I've hired one of the best photographers I know,

(do you see the black and white photo of the lil boy in the right hand corner of her front page?
Yup thats my son!)
