happy friday

I just found this photo booth via Snippet & Ink. oh my word I need to steal that idea! I've been trying to think of ways to display old family wedding photos, And I was thinking of having photo frames as props for the DIY photo booth I'm hoping to do, so this just combines everything. I just need to figure out how to rig up a camera with a remote clicker.. anybody know how to do that? Is it something I can rig any old digital camera up to do? I need to replace my old camera anyway so I might upgrade and make sure it's compatible with that kind of thing..

We're still in the grips of our photography dilemma. We thought we had a friend who could do it and budgeted accordingly - and then that friend moved away, and other things happened, and well we're back to square one, without room in the budget to splurge on a pro. Half the time I feel like throwing up my hands and saying I Don't Need Fancy Pants Photographers, just make sure as many of my shutterfly friends have their cameras ready and assign shots to different people so we make sure not to miss great moments, let's not worry about perfect lighting and focus.. And then I spend all day on Once Wed and Style Me Pretty and all the rest and I just can't imagine not having amazing photos like that of our day.. I do have a photographer friend of my mother's who may be interested in doing our wedding, we'll find out next month. If he doesn't want to/isn't available.. well we'll just see.

This weekend Mr. Fairfax and I will be sitting down to do some serious wedding brainstorming. :) Hopefully will narrow down the DJ options, start the ball rolling on the hotel room blocks, and talk about ideas for the ceremony. Have a great weekend everyone :)

That photobooth is on all the blogs! It's pretty sweet. For me, photography was really important and worth splurging - we aren't doing any videography, so the photos are how I'll remember the wedding and how my kids (and grandkids?!!) will see how it was. And yes, looking at all the gorgeous photos on the blogs has convinced me that I made the right choice in splurging on photos!

Setting up a camera with remote clicker is pretty simple. It will depend on the camera you have, but regardless, it will need to be set up on a tripod. Digital SLRs tend to work best for this. BH Photo Video is a good place to look for camera remote controls. (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/shop/298/Remote_Controls_Remote_Controls_Wired_.html)

Also, I'm not a professional, but I love photography and am trying to get back into it. I shot a friend's wedding last summer and did more of a second-shooter job for my FSIL's wedding about a month ago. If you want, I can send links to photos from those weddings.

I have a friend who is just getting started in wedding photography (she has lots of experience in other photography). She takes amazing photos. She's going to be a 2nd shooter at our wedding in October. I'd be happy to put you in touch with her - send me an email if you're interested!
