WW: My Dream Photographer is Mine!

Before I was even engaged my priorities for my wedding went as follows:

1. Matt Ramos Photography
2. Groom
3. Venue

I didn't know when or if Dom was even going to propose, but from the first time I saw Matt Ramos's pictures I knew he had to be mine.  Ever since Dom and I got engaged I have been stalking his calendar (thank goodness he posts it on his website or I would have been calling him everyday) to make sure I knew his availability when looking at venues.  I told my mother not only that I would sell a kidney to pay for him if necessary (his calendar was listed but not pricing...that's never good!) but I would happily get married in our driveway as long as Matt was there to photograph it!  As of last week our deposit is in, our contract is signed, and Matt Ramos is mine!! I suppose he's ours...but I don't think Dom feels the obsession quite like I do. ;)

Everything about Matt's style is so me.  Photography is something I love so much, and it incredibly important to me on my wedding day.  I've seen a lot of nice wedding pictures, but Matt's albums are the first I've looked through and loved every single one.  He photographed our friends Ashlee and Corey's wedding last September, and I've had to have him ever since!

Ashlee and Corey are also pretty darn perfect, so I bet that helps! ;)  I love that his pictures are a mix of posed and just watching people interact and snapping a picture of the moment.  Here are a few more from his website that fueled my love!


 I mean...there's a hanging dress picture, and then there's a hanging dress picture. 
Swoon.

He also is incredibly knowledgeable about weddings in the Lake George, Saratoga, Albany area and had amazing suggestions.  He said he'd be my photographer, mini wedding planner, and friend through the whole process. :)  When we went over some basic plans on the phone he knew exactly when the sun was going to set on my wedding date (8:04pm) so we could plan when to have the ceremony and reception to have the best lighting for pictures.  He also had suggestions about which hotels he knew around Saratoga that gave beautiful lighting for getting ready pictures.  I am so thankful because one of the really nice ones we were planning on is apparently really dark!  He promised to make me look beautiful no matter where we picked, but I love having someone "in the know" guiding me!  I mentioned that we hadn't chosen a church yet because we were looking for one that would be open to 2 priests (once Catholic and one Episcopalian) preferably without a large crucifix behind the alter.  He named two right off the top of his head and even knew the addresses!

He really is perfect and I am so excited to have him document our special day!!

All pictures from Matt Ramos Photography!

Linking up for Wedding Wednesday!
Love Always Nancy J
