More often than not, the photographers advertising there, are amateur or hobbyist photographers with very little experience. While there's nothing wrong with that, it does mean you run the very real risk of your wedding photos being amateur and unprofessional.

Not such a big deal for engagement photos, as those can be re-shot. But you've only got one chance to get amazing wedding photos and – as they're the one tangible, visible memory of your day that lasts forever – it's worth the expense to hire a professional.

As for the boots, I picked them up last year at an antique show located in upstate New York. Sometimes vendors who specialize in certain items will have a few items that aren't their typical wares–as is the case with these boots. I spotted them sitting on a table at a booth that specialized in antique tools and bric-a-brac. I immediately put them on and they fit (although they were a touch tight). After doing some initial inspecting I dated the shoes (based on experience) somewhere around 1900-1915. I just had to have them. When I asked the fella how much he wanted for them he said $20! Sold.

I too looked on craigslist and the examples on there were pretty scary!

I found my photographer for $800 on craigslist, and I couldn't be happier. I'm so glad you found your photographer for a price that fit your budget!

And your engagement pictures are lovely, but mostly I wanted to say that your boots kick quite a lot of butt. I'm enamoured!
