I’m linking up today with Natalie for her wedding picture linkup! I mean, I rocked the bump and the baby, why not also rock the veil?
I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about my wedding photographer here on the blog, which is odd because it was a really awful experience and totally blogworthy. I guess starting a blog two years after a bad experience really takes a lot of wind out of that story’s sails, if you know what I mean.
So let’s take a trip down memory lane and re-live my wedding through the eyes of a very terrible photographer…
*wavy hands to signify a dream sequence is about to start*
Our wedding photographer was cheap by wedding photographer standards. We were all, really? All that and at this price! Bargain of the century!
Turns out, you get what you pay for.
Out of over 500 photos, only 100 were nice enough to print for our album. Maybe if she spent more time taking pictures and less time cutting in the buffet line, booking other appointments, telling my sister she had back fat and having a pissing match with the videographer, we would have had a better outcome.
NO MATTER. She was lucky enough to catch some great moments.
This one is my favorite:
We had bubbles instead of rice or birdseed, but we stayed way too long having fun and then realized we needed some bubble pictures before people left. I love this picture because it brings back the feeling of relief and joy I felt after the ceremony and reception were over. I mean, I loved my wedding, but it was stressful.
My hub and I have so much fun together. he’s always been able to make me laugh no matter what — even when I’m being photographed by a terrible, rude photographer who clearly has no idea how to compose a picture.
We’ve been laughing ever since.
Then there’s this one:
Aww, sweet, huh? Just a man and a woman who have just recently been joined in holy matrimony and are celebrating their marriage amongst family and friends. Look at the smiling…because of love.
No, scratch that. I mean, don’t scratch it completely, because all of that was true.
except that is my wedding smirk.
See, this was taken right before we left the reception. The day was essentially over. Not thirty seconds before this, we were talking and laughing and having a great time, winding down, when I see the photographer all up in my grill trying to “capture a moment” when she had about 5 hours before this point to “capture a moment” and missed the boat.
I smirked at hub and then turned to her and said in my sweetest Southern voice and deadpan face “Is there some way I need to pose for you so you can get this shot?”
What are some of your favorite wedding memories?
