    Congrats and thank you for this post! I just made a blog post delving into wedding planning… I’m in the middle of planning a wedding too and am at the stage that booking the equipment rentals and basic services is coming up, so you’re post was a motivator to get moving and get more clarity from my better half!

    Any suggestions for hiring a photographer (as in how many hours) and what the average pricing might be? I have my wedding budget’s maximum cost listed here (, and it’s starting to get a little tight so I’m preparing to knock off some of the really fun “extras” we’d hoped to have.
