Wedding Plans - Booking the Photographer

We booked our photographer today! I did a TON of research on local photographers and was really hoping to find someone who fit in our budget who also appealed to me personality-wise, because I know how important it is to find someone who really fits with the couple and their personalities.  We arranged to meet Ashley Dupree at our venue (Theatre 98) today to see some of her prints and her pricing arrangements.  I knew pretty much right away that I liked her and wanted her to work with us.  I just really enjoyed talking with her and she truly loves taking photos.  So we put down a deposit to have her hold our date and will be having several other meetings with her to discuss the particulars.  I took her on a tour of the theatre and told her where certain things would be happening and she saw so many possibilities for great shots in the various areas.  She's never shot a wedding in a place like this (who has, right?  nobody has ever been married there!) so she was really excited about it.  We talked about how nontraditional we are and that I absolutely wanted her to take some shots of us having a sword fight and she said that was perfect.

So we are using Ashley Dupree Photography for our wedding.  A two-person team, with an hour before the ceremony, the ceremony, and 2-3 hours of the reception.  I don't anticipate our reception lasting longer than that, being that the wedding is at 2 in the afternoon on a Sunday.  People have places to be!  And of course, we will want to leave for our honeymoon as soon as we can!  : )
