My photographer was AMAZEBALLS!! (DC, MD, VA)

First off, don't forget about Thirsty Thursday tomorrow!! I would love to get some new linkers so spread the word!! And I promise I'll be better about recognizing all of you, too!! I've been such a slacker!! Anyone interested in cohosting email me at

OK, now back to Wedding Wednesday!! I know, I know...I'm already married, but I just have to recognize the photographers from my wedding.

I knew the one thing I was willing to really spend money on was my photographer. No, not my dress. That's something I knew I would only wear once. But, my photographer would be the person to capture those memories for the rest of our lives.

Mike and I did a lot of research and we finally ended up picking Paired Images. Jess and Jess that's right two Jess's :) were AWESOME!! They are both so easy going and amazing and their photos are incredible! And truthfully, they were super affordable!! We wanted to get a sense of their style with us so, as usual, we had our engagement shoot with them.

It was the coldest day of the whole winter. I have no idea how the four of us made it through for almost two hours. There was snow and ice everywhere!!

Not to mention we were right on the water. We had our pics done in Annapolis, right downtown.

But they were both troopers and we treaded through the snow to get some amazing shots!!

You can see their blog post about us and more awesome shots here!!

So naturally, we kept them on for our wedding. And they certainly did not dissappoint!! 

And this time, it certainly was not cold. In might have been one of the hottest days of the summer. :)

It's so important to have someone who you can count on to capture those memories.

Of course you remember parts of your wedding day...but visual reminders are always helpful.

So if anyone in the DCish area is in need of a photographer...please check out Jess and Jess. They are AMAZING!!!

And if you haven't had enough of us yet...visit their blog page about our wedding!!

Or go see them on Facebook!!
