I had some people tell me I wasn't spending enough, and others tell me that their favorite photos were taken by friends and family - and it was a waste to pay someone.
I have to tell you, it was the best thing that Jordan and I spent money on that day. The very best. Not long after we were married, we found out that my dad had lung cancer. A few short months after that, he passed away.
We have amazing photo's from that day, of my entire family, of my husband and I, of our grandparents, and of my dad. A guy who hated having his picture taken. My family still cherishes those photos, photos we never would have had otherwise.
So here's the thing, even though it's going to cost us $500-$800 depending on the package we choose. I still want to do it, I want to enjoy the moment, and the pictures captured afterward because you just don't know when it's going to be your last picture.
