Broke-Ass Tag: wedding photos


So you’re planning a wedding.

Duh. You’re here.

It’s a little overwhelming sometimes, isn’t it? Chances are, this is your first merry-go-round and you’re kinda sorta just learning as you’re going. And man, that can be tough. You probably had to wade through one of those big ol’ websites that have ALL the information, and then you probably narrowed down your specifications by budget, aesthetics, ideas … and somewhere in all that Google-fu, you landed on The Broke-Ass Bride. Yay! So you’re getting some awesome tips on how to have a badass wedding on a broke-ass budget. I’m here for you.

So here for you, in fact, that I’ve got another tip for you: If you haven’t found your photographer yet, get thee over to Photographer Central. The super pretty, super new website is a registration-free (yay! No random emails! No extra password to remember!) database of shutterbugs, searchable by style (portrait, plants, kids, weddings, etc.) and location, then can be further narrowed down by style, price, distance and then some.

Guys, seriously? This is great. If you tried to run these kinds of criteria through a search engine, you’d have to wade through a holy mass of websites to maybe find what you want.

By the way, when I said “registration-free” I really meant ALL THE WAY free. Like, FREE-99, yo. It costs you exactly zero, zip, zilch to use this site and find the photog who will be snapping away on your wedding day. And you don’t have to click all over the place to try to find relevant photos that show off their styles — because rather than itty bitty thumbnails, Photographer Central‘s interface displays the sample images front ‘n’ center. BOOM.

Wedding planning doesn’t have to cost a ton of money or be uber complicated. Photographer Central knows this. Check ’em out, and keep up on Facebook and Twitter.

    Full disclosure: I was that girl. You know, that girl whom, after a number of years of dating/cohabitating, becomes a dreadful nag about engagement. To be clear: I wasn't the girl who cared about what "people" would think if we didn't, or about Holy Ceremony, or even about the diamond. I was the girl who wanted to throw a terrific party to celebrate her overflowing love…
