The Group Shot

March 25, 2010

Mr. K and I are HUGE fans of How I Met Your Mother an awesome show that comes on Mondays nights on CBS. I could totally relate to this weeks episode, which was about your friends ruining the classic group shot by bringing in random one night only dates, whose names no one can remember 5 years down the line. My dilemma is a little different – the people in my photos were not randoms they were people who had long term relationship with two people very close to my heart. 

Recently two people very near and dear to me broke up with their long term other havles, my brother and JS. During the time of my wedding both had been dating their others for a while in serious committed relationships. These people appear in quite a few of my wedding photos, including a few family shots. A few pictures including these now hated exed out other halves have made it into my wedding album (since the breaking up did not happen until after the picture choosing had already taken place).

So now I have a dilemma, do I want my brothers crazy ex in my wedding album? Do I want JS’s  psychotic ex in my huge group shot that ends my book? Although these people played significant parts in the lives of my loved ones – they were not one of my besties. So should they live out their immortality in my wedding album??? I think not, especially since no one ever want to see them again. Seems to make sense to photoshop them out so no one ever had to see them again. Right? Right.

Wedding Album Proofs!

March 24, 2010

Recently we got to see the proof of our wedding album! It took us forever to choose the 60 or 70 photos that are going into our album. There was much debate, and we spent about 2 hours in the photography studio mulling over our decisions. Then one day I received an e-mail saying that the proof of our wedding album was finished! Joy!

I was nervous about seeing the proof. I like to have control over certain situations – I didn’t know if I could trust our photographers to create a stunning photo book. How were they supposed to know which photos were our favorites and are one we want showcased? How are they supposed to tell our story when the album designer wasn’t even at our wedding?

I have to admit they did a great job on the book! Granted there were about 4 pages of notes on things that we wanted changed/photoshopped but all in all the book looks good and we look good! Plus it was really fun reliving our wedding day!
