Will yah take my picture?

WE DID IT and met our my deadline! 
We booked our photographer and I couldn't be happier with our decision. I found her months ago but didn't quite think she was in our price range. Mostly because she did not include a second shooter with the package that was closest to our budget. I always thought I NEEDED a second shooter but after talking with her my mind quickly changed. She assured me she shoots many of her weddings solo and her pictures attest to the great work she does alone! 

Without further adieu we booked Katie Hall. Go check out her blog and OooO and aHHhh over her gorgeous pics.

My thoughts on booking a photog from across the country:

Firstly, I must admit that I am the most awkward phone person ever. I have been trying to get better about it but I legit just HATE the phone and I mumble.. I get that from my dad!
My awkwardness worked out in my favor because talking to Katie went SO smoothly and I felt very comfortable talking to her. So this MUST mean I will feel equally as comfortable w/ her taking our pictures on the big day and less awkward I hope!

Although of course I wish we could've met her before booking, the phone worked just fine in getting a feel for her personalty!
So there's 1 less thing for me to whine about concerning planning a wedding from across the country.

Let's just hope the rest of the decisions on vendors is THIS easy.
