Chelsi's Wedding Blog


A picture is worth a thousand words, and apparently, thousands of dollars!  The price of some of the wedding photographer services that we’ve researched is astronomical.  However, if we do find a photographer that we really like, this is one area where Paul and I are willing to splurge.  I photo-document EVERYTHING, which my thousands of Facebook photos and stacks of photo albums will reveal!  Paul is also interested in photography, so he is on ‘photo duty’ to track down a great photographer.  He hass just starting to research this area, and we have a few photographers in mind.  If you know of any that you would recommend, however, we would love if you would share them with us!

Paul and I both love the use of natural light in photographs.  I like creative poses, while Paul loves candids.  I have saved a number of pictures from various blogs that I would like to use as inspiration.  Some of these are engagement shoots, but I still like the ideas used.  Feel free to browse through these pictures and witness the creativity and artistic ability used to capture these couples’ special moments.

I love this idea, and Paul loved it as well because it is similar to an album cover by Oasis!

I love the use of the frames in these pictures as well:

The following are some really great poses and candids.  I love the use of the natural light in many of these pictures as well.

I LOVE the soft, vintage feel of the photographs above.

I am not sure if Paul’s asthma will allow me to do that, even on our wedding day!

I REALLY want to rent an old car for our wedding!

The following are mostly engagement shoots, but I love the unconventional feeling of them.  Maybe we could incorporate some of these aspects into our wedding pictures.  My friends Wendy and Zach had some of their pictures taken inside the exposed brick building that houses Beer Brothers Restaurant.  Their pictures were SO neat because of the vintage feel.  I would like to see if we could get pictures taken inside Darke Hall or outside of one of the old brick buildings on College and Broad.

It would be neat to do something like this at Darke Hall if we couldn’t do outdoor pictures due to rain.

My favourite idea involving photography is to set up a photo booth at the wedding using a Polaroid camera.  I saw this idea on a blog and it functioned as a visual guest book.  The bride set up various frames as props and a chalkboard for the guests to write their names or a funny message to the couple.  Someone took their picture with the camera and hung it on either clothespins on chicken wire in a frame, or simply tacked it on a board.  The couple then had a visual representation of everyone at the wedding!  I’m so excited to try something like this!

I can’t wait for this!  It is also an excuse for me to invest in some good film for my old Polaroid camera, or to buy a new and better one!  Say cheese!

    I was thinking that it would be cool for the bridesmaids and I to all have neat vintage frames and to pose in a line with them or something!

    Great blog – would be even better if you credited the photographers whose photo’s you used so everyone could see who the amazing talent is 🙂

  8. Designer cards have different images with latest trend and theme.
    You also need to take into account the need to move
    around, as well as space for other people such as waiters and the photography team.
    Entertain the thought of buying an adjustable ring.

  9. Or, perhaps you’re one of those students who desires
    a challenge, or even a good addition to your résumé for Grad school.
    When job offers do come and I’ll admit, some companies may fear hiring you because they fear a former owner being an employee,
    negotiate the best salary you can along with the best benefits you
    can for you and your family. Always choose a new account, and look
    for a specialized bank whenever possible.
