Oh... if there's anything I could become completely fanatical about, it would be photography.

I mean, it's just so... beautiful. I love everything about it... the different lighting, the shadows, photo editing, the click sound it makes when taking a picture, the ART of it, how it can completely change a perspective on a subject by capturing it in a different angle or light. *Le Sigh. I wish I could BE a photographer...

Anyway, enough about my love affair with photography... I think one of the things I am looking forward to the most about the wedding is getting the amazing pictures back afterward. No seriously, that is actually the thing I am looking forward to the most. (And having my friends and family witness the most important moment in my life, but besides that...)

I might actually use half of my wedding budget to afford the perfect photographer (er... floral arrangements? Who needs those!) Anyway, so I found a few really amazing photographers located in Virginia. I figured I'd save them for when I actually need to come back and look for some later. In fact, I know people who know people who have used some of these... so they MUST be good! :)

Also... another thought, engagement photo shoot or no?
Are they worth it? Because... it's so expensive and I'd like to just use that money to have a great photographer on the actual wedding day (did you get that memo?) Maybe I'll just force AJR to truck around with me and my tripod randomly over the next few months and let me embarrass him with my obsessive photo taking.

**That picture is of us just hanging out in the yard this past weekend. He's fun :) (taken by us with my tripod)
