I knew what I didn’t want as much…

Choosing your Wedding Photographer

Besides the dress, the photographer is the thing I knew I would be most particular about when it came to wedding planning.

If we’re going to actually go to a store to shop, we’ve gotta be in the mood. For the few times a year he does some shopping, this isn’t as big of a deal. For someone who shops as much as me, it can…
