Snow day!

Of course, I didn't have to go to work anyway, but Rich stayed home with me.

Yes, an actual picture of me this time! One of my favorites from the wedding.

I have now become obsessed by putting together the wedding album. I'm going to make one of those coffee table books with (OK, technically, I already made one, but I'm improving it for round 2). So here's a thumbnail shot of the whole thing, any input?

Tell me this doesn't remind you of me oh so much. Skin, hair and nose.

John Singer Sargent, Madame X, if anyone wants to know where I got it/see the full picture.

I obviously should not be the person to plan big events . I'm booking the second or third thing I see in every category (and so is Rich, for the ones I'm giving to him to do). Dress, reception site, DJ, and now photographer.

So. I told the *one* (yes, one) photographer I met with that I wanted to book her. She's an excellent price for the area, is just going on her own after working in a larger studio - so plenty of experience, does albums like I like, and I felt comfortable with her, so why meet with others?

I'm trying to decide how early I need her to show up. The consultant is recommending starting to get ready at 8, so I can be done at 10, and the pictures can be done before guests start arriving around 11:30. I guess 9 would be plenty early even for getting ready shots - it's not like I want pictures before I have ANY makeup on or my hair's still wet. But it still seems way to early for a noon wedding.

I'm still vacillating on the pictures before. I like Mom's theory, which is that the picture-taking is the entertainment during the cocktail hour. But Rich has no objection to taking them before, and I guess no one's going to miss seeing his first look at me. I don't remember ever looking at the groom at that moment - I'm too busy trying to see the bride myself. So pictures before might ensure getting more good ones. And while the flowers and makeup are still looking their best. And we'll be able to eat that much sooner (I know, the bride and groom never get to eat - I can hope).

And the last thing on the contract is any special requests I particularly want, that she wouldn't take as a matter of course (we can assume she'll take pictures of me with various close relatives, or the bridesmaids, or of the cake cutting, etc.). So far, I just have a picture of *everyone* (bridal party and guests both), and of the extended Fleming clan (over 30 people, you want to know about that in advance). I think everything else will be pretty standard. Other suggestions welcomed.

So yesterday, I took a well-deserved personal day (mostly because we're still having car issues, mine isn't back yet) and I finally played with my new camera some more. So there is finally a picture of me on LiveJournal that doesn't look sulky. And it only took 5 tries!
