One of the first things I did after getting engaged was start looking for a photographer. We figured since it was the one thing that was actually going to last, we were willing to devote a significant portion of our budget to finding someone who could capture all the love, excitement, and fun of our wedding day. Enter Sarah K. Chen. I'll definitely do a full post on Sarah soon, but trust me, her work is fan-freakin-tastic, so pleeeeease do yourself a favor and go check out her blog. Like, now. I'll wait.
Ok, so after perusing Sarah's entire blog (multiple times), I comprised a list of "must have" shots, i.e. shots I CANNOT WAIT to hang in our house. At the top of the list is the Shoe Shot.

Great shoes + Great photographers = SWOON. In fact, it was these shots that inspired me to buy these bad boys:
Hecks yeah I’m wearing purple ostrich skin shoes at my wedding. The hard part is resisting the temptation to wear them now. I’ve resorted to keeping them at the future in-laws’ house so I don’t take them out for a test drive. But the best part? After the wedding, I’ll be able to wear them again. And again. And again.
Anyone else wearing a non-traditional wedding shoe?
