I'm a bit of a newbie here but so far..I'm loving it :)
Such a great resource and support group. THANKS everyone
A quick intro:
My name's Priscilla and Patrick is my FI. We met (online lol ) about 2 in a half years ago we've been inseparable ever since. He proposed in May 2008 and our wedding will be on May 28, 2009.
I don't have a huge budget...but I'm working every angle and searching for the best deals :)
We'll be getting Married on a Thursday in Vegas with family and then on the next Sat. we'll be having a party with family and friends. Then the following Sat. we're flying to WI for a party with his side of the family. And then we're off to europe for 3 weeks (YEAH)
I'm still trying to come up with ideas for the CA party (thank goodness his mom is taking care of the WI party). Found my dress, invitations and save the dates..my friend, who is a photographer will be doing our photos and and other friend is making the cake. Oh and then another will DJ. Thank god for all my buddies :)
Hmm well I need to check out more ideas so I can bring this all together.
Take care everyone,
So on of my oldest friends (Ag) is a photographer and while she was at film school, I would be her model. Not that's I was ever so gorgeous...but I was a Bio major and her classes in film were exotic and enticing.
Years have passed since then but Ag still loved the camera and decide to start a photo business. Needing photos for her website..I immediately volunteered.
At the time Patrick and I just started dating...so when I asked him if he would mind modeling with me ..I expected him to pass. But he thought about it for a minute and said "sure..why not". It may have had something to do with me saying " don't worry Patrick, if you don't want to, I have a guy friend who would probably do it" LOL. But either way, he was a great sport.
Poor guy, he didn't know what he was in for :) She took over 300 shot and it took us about 4 hours with several clothing changes. But in the end he said he had a good time and was happy to help...what a sweety....
So now, 2 yrs later, we're using those same engagement photos for our upcoming wedding. :)
