Photo Envy

Just recently, I have been feeling a fair bit of photo envy. Not many of you will know the story of our wedding photos, and why I have reason to be envious. The short version of the story is that we had a not-quite-so-professional do our wedding photos and we have regretted it ever since. We were shown the photos, on a slideshow and then in one of those cheap books by Photobox and we had so many discussions with the photographer afterwards. Basically half of them just weren't flattering, so he hadn't taken enough shots to get that perfect one, and the post-processing on them was awful. Thankfully hubby's brother is a photographer and he did some post-processing work on them and they look a thousand times better, but they still aren't exactly what we wanted. Its not like we can do it all over again...

When we went over to F&F's (hubby's brother et sister-in-law) the other day, he showed us an album he had put together for a wedding he did a month or so ago. It was beautiful. And I was so envious.

Recently Becka and Nate from Studio222Photography have been posting a lot more on their blog and I absolutely adore their photography. If they had been running their business when we got married back in Sept 2007 (were they? I don't know...) then I would have paid ANYTHING to have them be our wedding photographers. I am envious.

We only had one wedding day, and it was a perfect day. I just feel like the fact that the photography wasn't exactly how we wanted it has marred it a little.

I still love this picture of those captured moments...

You're just too sweet. Sadly I hear this same thing all the time from people who had the same experience as you. :(

But, I love that one shot you put up (and your husband's hair!)

Nate and I are gonna be in Europe in late 2010 early 2011 for our own wedding (eek) so maybe we can meet up and do a super amazing European session with you guys!!!!

I try desperately to convince my engaged friends to get a professional photographer like my brother-in-law but they rarely listen. It is too sad.

Yay would be great to do a photoshoot! Goodness its quite scary to think that by then Baby will be 1 year old!!
