I guess SOMEBODY has to update this thing...

Even if no one is reading it.

Tonight Benay and I are meeting with our photographer to go over must-have shots and what-not. I have to tell ya, our photographer is probably what I am most excited about as far as the wedding planning goes.

She is amazing. Her photos are really cool. None of those lame "lineup" poses that always look like class pictures from elementary school where someone is blinking, someone is not looking at the camera, and someone else looks drunk.

Almost all of her photos are candid. They capture the real mood of the wedding. You can tell from her other work that those people were actually having a good time. When I look back at my wedding pictures in 50 years I want to remember what a good time I and everyone else had. To me, that is what having your wedding photographed is all about. Not just imortalizing what everyone wore that day.

Mary and her husband Matt are both really cool. They will both be there the day of the wedding taking pictures of us getting ready all the way through the reception. It is really like getting two photographers for the price of one. We met with them for some bridal portraits a few weeks ago and they turned out awesome.

Nay and I are also going to be burning 100 CDs for wedding favors. I don't even know what is going to be on them. I am hoping she will limit herself to only 1 Justin Timberlake song, but I doubt that she will be able to. Don't say I didn't warn you.
