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!)
