It was not that long that I was a bride and planning our wedding. It can be a daunting task. So much to remember, plan, pay for, and keep track off all things that are important to you both.
Photography often leaves couples and possibly their parents wondering how to make that final decision on who is going to capture the day. Photos are the one thing about weddings that is not tangible. You get to taste the food, see the venue, see the flowers, try on the dress, and eat all those yummy cake samples. The photography is always up in the air until you actually see the photos.
For us, as photographers ourselves, photography was a HUGE part of our wedding. We had the best photographer we know shoot our wedding. In fact, we asked her to shoot our wedding before my husband asked her husband to be his best man. It was big deal for us, and it may be for you too.
Here are some of our tips for hiring a photographer for your wedding.
To blog or not to blog, that is the question. Right now the answer is to blog.
We are Rose and Tim. We live in Arizona and we are photographers. Husband and wife photographers. We have been photographing together since almost day one of our lives together and we keep on doing it. The best part of our working relationship is we keep learning from each other every time we shoot. It is great to do something you love with your favorite person. It is not work if you are having fun.
Why the name Downeast Photographers? Tim is from Maine and Rose is from Boston. There are a lot of downeast things in our lives. We spend a week in the summer in New England. We both love the Boston Red Sox. There is no resisting a good Yankee pot roast. And the best word to describe anything is wicked.
Downeast is a term for parts of eastern coastal New England. The phrase apparently derives from sailing terminology: sailors from the western ports sailed toward the east or down to get to the ports. A person from this are may be called a down-easter. Within Maine, the phrase, Down East may refer specifically to the state's easternmost region, also called Down East Maine.
We currently live in the east part of the Phoenix Valley which is also referred to as "down in the east valley".
