Let me tell you, she has been wonderful so far and I haven't even gotten to meet her face to face yet. But I am on the lookout for a wedding photographer if anyone here knows of anyone close to the Dallas area. I am paying for my wedding on my own, so obviously, am on a budget. But our theme is 50s vintage and I just really have been looking for someone who knows the time and culture so that pictures turn out just right. If anyone knows, please please let me know! firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks so much and I'll post pics of my shoot once we get back!
