I have a ton of wedding related questions. A TON! People are beginning to think I'm cray-cray and I'm being driven to drink wine every night. (okay, that last part is a lie-I do that regardless).
I make quick decisions because I loathe the decision making process. If i have an inkling that something will work, I decide yes and then figure out the details later. It's a tactic I've been using for 26 years, it's works! Well- worked. In all honesty, it doesn't work so much in Wedding Planning. I feel anxiety when I think about decisions I've made. I'm constantly doubting myself and I don't really have the typical wedding support system to turn to. I'm thinking of doing a wedding related post on Fridays, to ease the millions of thoughts running through my little ol' head. My wedding is only 38 Friday posts away! haha
So, today I'm asking:
Is it okay to request a certain style from a photographer?
My engagement pictures are next Sunday and I'm starting to second guess my photographer choice. Don't be so surprised! I love the lady, we have great chemistry. She's been the photographer in few of my friends weddings, I've seen her work! It is definitely Traditional. Which I like! I'm going for the whole "rustic" feel, so I want my pictures to be timeless. Until one of my lovely bridesmaids sent me an engagement shoot of one of her sorority sisters and I'm in love-e-e-e-e with the style of it. Love as in, I cannot stop thinking about it!
I can't pinpoint what it is, but I think it's the way she uses the natural light. Or, maybe it's the fact that the bride to be is stunningly beautiful!
I guess my questions is: is it okay to send these to her and say that this is the style I'm completely obsessed with? Or, should I just trust her creative style and just stop being a bridezilla?
What do you ladies think?
