Its not a big deal but i had to ask. Last month i had my engagement party. I am normally the camera person for all parties. I like to document everything. But since it was my party i didnt feel like taking pictures and running around. I just wanted to enjoy my party. So my mom and sister told me they would take pictures. Well, in the end I hardly got any good pictures. So that makes me sad. I was thinking about having a photographer be at my Bridal Shower. There wont be any gifts to be opened. People will be giving me gifts cards/checks. It has to be like this. It was dont for the Engagement Party and everyone understood and was glad! So a childhood friend of mine contacted me on Facebook and wanted to be friends. I learned that she is a photographer. She gave me her prices. The problem is should I really hire someone? I wont be opening up gifts. I know thats the main party of the party. Maybe I should just do my own pics. Any thoughts? I just think I really lost out on the Engagement Party with hardly any pics. HELP!!! She would charge $75-100 per hour. Maybe I could just have her do the last two hours of the party? For cake?
