Last week I woke up to the BEST EMAIL. It was from our wedding photographers, Amy & Stuart, with a link to some sneak peeks of our wedding pictures!!!!
I had emailed them last week asking if there was any chance they would send over a couple images of the two of us so I could put one on our holiday cards - we have NEVER done them before but I figure if you can't do it the year you get married and buy a new house then when can you!?
I had honestly figured we would get two, maybe three pictures to hold us over til the rest of them were ready... but our photographers sent over more than 50! In his email, Stuart wrote, "I was only going to do a few, but once I started, I was so stoked about how good they looked that I couldn't stop." Um, I'm not complaining!
Let me now just quickly gush about Amy & Stuart. I can't even begin to tell you what artists they are. Truly, their photos are like works of art. Living in LA, we had the option of hiring many, many talented photographers, and indeed, we met with quite a few while choosing who to hire for the wedding. I took this decision very seriously - after all, you never wear the dress again, the food is only eaten once, nobody but the bride cares about the linens... but the photos? The photos last forever! I personally love taking pictures (#onceasororitygirlalwaysasororitygirl) but Ram can sometimes be shy in front of a camera... we wanted to pick a photographer who made us feel comfortable, someone who would put us at ease and make us laugh the day of the wedding when we were feeling nervous or overwhelmed... and in the end, it was only ever going to be Amy & Stuart.
They're a husband and wife team (and they actually did my friend Merav's wedding five years ago) and from the moment we met them, we knew they were the ones! We loved chatting with them, we loved their sample albums they showed us and the pictures we stalked on wedding websites, and then a few months later when we did our engagement shoot at the movie theater, we knew we had made the right choice, 100%! They were funny and sweet and creative and just so great. The day of the wedding, we spent three hours straight taking portraits with each other, with our wedding party, with our families, and they were amazing the entire time. I couldn't recommend them more....
And I couldn't be happier with these pictures! They TRULY took my breath away. See for yourself!!!

One of these babies is going on our holiday card this year... which one would you choose?! I would seriously love your opinion, I am having a hard time narrowing them down... After I send them out I'll post it here so you all can see!
