I'm Ready For My Close-Up...

I'm so excited! We signed the contract today for our wedding photographer! This was of uber importance to us so I am delighted that the choice has been made official.

After looking at so many photographers' websites and seeing portfolios at wedding shows, D. and I both knew we wanted something that captured more than staged, formal shots. We're just not staged, formal shots kind of people. Trying to keep our photo snobbery in check was challenging, too. Trust me, when you know photography and the magic that goes into photo retouching, color balancing and composition, your standards can skyrocket quickly. We both knew we wanted someone we could jive with on a personal level, someone with mad skills and vision and someone willing to try to capture the feeling of our day and turn it into something visually beautiful.

Enter Kitty Maer.

Ah, Kitty. She's a photo rockstar through and through. After wrapping up our initial meeting-turned-2-hour-hang-out, we knew we really, really liked Kitty. She was even was enthused at the idea of our wedding falling on a Friday the 13th and said that she's had good luck with Friday the 13th weddings. Yep. I'm a fan.

Alas, Kitty's personal photography commissions were outside even our budget's chunky photography allotment, but the most amazing news is that she has a sister studio called *Print and has two seriously wicked good associate photographers who deliver the similar photojournalistic, artistic style. What's more? Our amazing, newly-appointed photographer Christa is a graduate of my alma mater CCAD! I can understand her training on a personal level. CCAD is NOT a walk in the park, so she already has my utmost respect for that feat alone.

I considered pirating some images off of their website, but honestly, I just respect them too much. So, please visit their websites at the above links or from The Good Stuff over there on the right. It's worth it, I promise!!

I know it's silly to say this, but I already can't wait to see the photographs. Today is a happy day.

Awwwww! You're so sweet! I can't wait to see your photos, either...I have to admit, I'm a teensy bit jealous about Christa shooting your wedding. ;)

Oh, and feel welcome to swipe what ever photos you'd like from the blogs! That's what they're there for. haha
