Our photographer was so amazing! She is not a "professional" even though based on the quality of her work I wouldn't say that myself. She is doing all of our pictures for free! She made us feel so comfortable and we had a ton of fun. Here are a few of my favorite pics!

I want these so bad! I was thinking it'd be great for the rehearsal instead of a ribbon bouquet. A fun twist on tradition!! Im hoping FI can find me some. I told him Id be totally satisfied with these as a wedding gift because I want them so bad!
