Im having a fight discussion with my fiance about how much wedding photos cost and was hoping you guys could settle the score.

So here it is, how much (all together) did you end up paying for your photographer/ wedding pictures?
And for your money, what did you get?

Thanks VERY much!!!

I recall someone asking about venues in or around Kalamazoo some time ago... though I don't remember when.

These were listed in the little Prtage thing that I get every month.

Jan. 16th, 2008 @ 01:45 pm Wedding Photographer Question
 So I haven't started really looking into any wedding photographers yet( the wedding isn't until May 2009) but I went to a bridal show this past Sunday and entered my name into a contest with one of the wedding photographers there....well I didn't win the grand prize but I was a runner up and got $1000 any wedding package.  So I checked out their website and they state that their pricing starts at $3,500...meaning that the cheapest package for me with the discount would be $2,500...is that a good deal?  Also if there are any SE Michigan brides in here the place is called Venture Photography...anyone worked with them before?? Also any recommendations on any other Photographers in the SE Michigan area?

I want to make a wedding website but I don't want to pay, and I don't want to do something confusing or difficult.

Should I do a wedding Livejournal? At least I would be able to figure it out. MySpace?

Any other suggestions? I hate theknot.com because it is the cheesiest thing evar.

Nov. 28th, 2007 @ 04:41 pm Long Distance Help
 I need some HELP! I'm trying to plan this all the way from Georgia, virtually sight unseen. Can anybody recommend a venue that could hold roughly 300-400 people in roughly 5000sq ft or more? I've tried yahoo searches, and citysearch and all that stuff, but maybe I'm not using the right search terms, I don't know.  Any help would be so greatly appreciated!! The preferred area would be Ann Arbor, but I will also take Ypsilanti, Canton, Dearborn, Westland, Wayne, Auburn Hills, or other close by areas, but NOT actually IN Detroit.
