Hey, photographers.  Want to give me free wedding photography?  Just let me know.  We already have the photobooth, so that takes care of some photos.  But not all of them, of course.

I am into documentary-style wedding photography.  I’m not into posey, family photos, especially because both my Fiance and I have divorced parents.  We would rather just have more candid photos.

I don’t really know how much money people spend on wedding photography.  The prices I have seen have seemed exhorbant.  Especially for 2 photographers, which I thought was pretty much standard.  There is a husband/wife team that I love,  Pen Carlson photography.  If I could afford it, I would book them right this minute.

At Bella Pictures, you can get a reasonably priced wedding package.  And their pictures seem very nice, but I feel wary about booking a chain.  Doesn’t seem like truly personal service.

We also have a friend, Noah, at ouvyt.com who takes amazing photos.  But I want him to be a guest at the wedding, not a photographer!

Suggestions, especially from Chicago brides appreciated.


I have an Unhealthy Obsession

With food and ANTM.  For you losers out there, that’s America’s Next Top Model.

I could not live without FourFour.  His weekly recaps make my Monday morning.

And his photoshop skills are to die for.  Literally.

Like this cherry on my sundae:

Or this lovely gem:

And this:

Shows Tyra’s slow spiral into insanity.  BTW referring to herself as “Mama”?  Genius.

 Ever since cycle 2 (Yohanna)! I live for ANTM.  It is a show I will shamelessly love for the rest of my days, or at least untill cycle 15 or so.  Shopgirl is having a pedi/wine/ANTM finale party in a few weeks and I cannot wait!

All images care of Fourfour.

So cute

We went to the aquarium on Saturday, and Brendan does love penguins!
