Photographer: Booked!

11 Aug

Last night we formally booked our wedding photography with Neysa Ruhl Photography.

We are going to go with 8 hours with 2 photographers and approx 400 pictures; a wedding book; and engagement book for people to sign when they arrive at the reception; a website with our images for 3 months; and a cd of all our images to keep for all of time!

The great news is, we can always add an extra hour later if needed.  It looks like this package will work out well for us though.

I just can’t wait to see myself and everyone in her pictures.  Seriously, they look straight out of a magazine (a really interesting one) and they are thought provoking and just fantastic.

Next step is to figure out which ‘planned’ photos we want to take, because one of my mom’s concerns is the lack of formality in the pictures without being told exactly how to tilt your head or pose.  I think its partially because that’s what we are used to with Elite, and partially just a preference.

Thanks to Catherine for the excellent recommendation!
