So I’ve been a little lazy about blogging lately.  I have a cupcake recipe I’ve been meaning to post for awhile but, alas, I’m still feeling lazy (so maybe tomorrow or sometime next week).

Though I’ve been totally neglecting my blog, I have been busy doing other things, like wedding planning.  The preparations are coming along nicely and right now almost all the big things are taken care of.  We even found a photographer that isn’t causing us to crack open our piggy bank.

A good friend of mine recommended Ruthie Briggs, a new and blossoming photographer in Vancouver, WA.  Of course you don’t want to take a chance on wedding photos because, lets face it, after all the cake tastings, dress trying on, venue shopping, catering planning and invite sending, the photos are the one thing that will be seen long after everything else is said and done.  This is exactly why wedding photographers get away with charging thousands of dollars.  But we aren’t paying thousands of dollars, and we don’t feel we’re taking any chance at all by going with a photographer that’s semi-new to the business.  In fact, we did our engagement photo session with Ruthie yesterday and couldn’t be more pleased with the results.  You can check our photos out here, as well as peruse the rest of her work.  While you’re there, feel free to leave a comment on our posting and help us get a free 11 X 14 photo (yep a free print on top of her spectacular rates).

If you live in the Portland/ Vancouver area and need a photographer, you can reach Ruthie at beautifulrainydays@yahoo.com or (360) 903-4508.
