Maybe it's the artist in me, but I absolutely love photography! Personally, I think photography is the most important "extra" of a wedding.* There is just something so beautiful and special about capturing the love between two people! And who says you can only do this if you're engaged or getting married? I think everyone deserves a photo shoot.
*I say photography is an extra because really all you need for a wedding is the bride and groom and the promise to love each other. Well that and an officiant, witnesses and a license if you'd like to be legal :)
