Pictures are in!!!

The first set of our wedding pictures came in! Yay! I love them all. It was like having Christmas in August. Not to mention that half of these pictures will be framed and matted for Christmas gifts to the family.

It's amazing how expensive pictures are. We spent wayyyy too much on just this small amount.
I want to order more later, but I doubt we will be able to afford it.

These are the ones I got blown up for the parentals. I will have these matted and framed for them. They are a lot bigger in person. They are on really thick board and the color is great. I can't wait to see the finished product.
Now we are just waiting on our big photo book. I can't wait to see it! I asked our photographer how much it would be to have another one made for our parents and she said it would be $2,500!!! Are you kidding me??? So, needless to say, we are going to wait to get our cd of pictures (that we will not get until May 2010) and then I will have one made on my own. I mean wow!
On a side note, mine and Jim's date night was perfect. We had such a great time just talking laughing and talking about the future (and some of the time laughing about the future). We definitely needed that time away from everything.
The baby shower was too cute! I will have pictures from that up soon.
I hope everyone is having a good Monday!


  1. holy crap! I cant believe another book is THAT much. that's a lil redick. glad you had a great weekend!

  2. Hi there, I just came across your blog and discovered you are a GSU alum and had to state tha I am a fellow GSU-er myself. And believe it or not, Laura, in your pictures is a sorority sister of mine. We don't know each other personally but the older girls a few pledge classes ahead of me spoke of her! Small small world!!!

  3. Beautiful pics! :)
    And it is crazy how much you pay for weddings photos and how long it takes to get them back!

  4. omg i cant believe a big book would cost that much! that is a little redic! glad you are getting your own cd though - that will be nice!

  5. Beautiful photos, but I can't believe the price tag on them!! WOW!

  6. Beautiful pics!!! Hope you have a great week! =)

  7. Okay, I swear photographers charge an arm and a leg and take over a year to even get it to you. Sorry to hear that it was so expensive! The photos on that canvas type board look great!

  8. The biggest thing I am looking for other than quality of work in photographer is if they include the CD of images. When we had our engagement photos taken we purchased the CD for an additional $250 and saved a lot of money by doing it.
