Stress started settling in. (Stress and I got to be pretty good friends over those short 6 months of engagement.) I scoured the internet for hours trying to find someone, anyone who could do what I wanted, do it well, and do it cheap.
Then God moved. He brought me to a website of a photographer who had previously only done nature shots, and had ONE wedding under his belt. But, as I read his profile my heart knew. He was a Christian. His entire vision of what a wedding should look like was biblically based. He had scripture captioned under each and every picture. And...
HE WAS GOOD!
Like really good. I held my breath as I clicked on "pricing." And then I rubbed my eyes. Squinted. Called Eric over to see if he saw what I saw.
- All day coverage (no time contraints)
- bridal portaits
- all photos on cd and in a custom album
- doubles of all photos
- 10 5x7s, 10 8x10s, 3 16x24s, customized wedding book
Less than what I had budgeted.
The most amazing part of this story is that not only did I get my dream photos, but our photographer raised his prices just a mere 6 months later to over $4000 for a package that included half of what I got! He was good, and people were noticing.
Praising God today for allowing me to have sweet memories like these:
|sleeping beauty flower girl|
|my handsome fiance' and almost father-in-law|
|my crazy bridesmaids, flower girl and attendees|
|my beautiful bridesmaids and their flowers|
|dancing with my daddy to Elvis|
|me and my honey toasting the night away|
So all of these pictures go in my (virtual) memorial box to remind me of God's provision on the happiest day of my life!
By the way, my friend Amy was getting married not quite a year after us and my photographer was so good she wanted to use him as well. He had already raised his prices outside her budget as well, but because I was drumming up business for him like crazy, he gave her a huge discount as well.
How cool is our God to supply us exactly what we want and need on our most special days!
