Sorry about my
stupid clever new wedding related word. Maybe it’ll catch on with like five people. Maybe.
Remember when I said I had booked our photographer? WELL, I’m ready to reveal who that is, and ready to reveal proof of her awesomeness from a very trusted source: Sister/MOH Big Eyes! Sister Big Eyes has first-hand experience of working with my photographer because Sister Big Eyes and FBIL have booked the same said photographer!
Here’s the thing, Sister did not want to do the same amount of research her older sis did, she wanted to get a reasonably priced deal with a quality person, and she came to Mr. Sword and I for information. While we were in Minnesota meeting with our four choices, Mr. Sword and I were keeping Sister Big Eyes and FBIL up to speed on what we thought of each meeting. Once we came to the conclusion and booked our photographer, they muddled it over, did a quick online search and ultimately decided to go with the same woman.
Crystal Liepa. Sister Big Eyes reports that she is a JOY to work with. Crystal is easy-going and fun, welcomes personal photo ideas, but at the same time doesn’t run out of new and interesting shots herself. She’s bubbly, smart, and a full-time photographer! I can’t wait to get my own chance to work with her in March!
From what I heard their shoot was a blast, filled with laughs, and even my little nephew-pup Fibonacci, (my sister is a math nerd), got to join in on the fun! They chose to go back to Lake Calhoun (a beautiful and popular lake in Minnesota), where they got engaged, for one of their locations. Sound familiar? They also hit up a Dunn Bros coffee shop because FBIL is a coffee-addict like myself, and because coffee shops are the best places to have a first date with a person you met online. Yes, Sister Big Eyes and FBIL are a Match success story! I bet you know someone who’s met on Match, it’s the place to be!
Here is just a peak at their adorable photos!

Honestly, I am thrilled with our decision to use the same photographer! I think it will only benefit us all over the next year, allow for more comfortable family photos, and make our Rock the Frock Sisters Shoot feel like one big, happy reunion! Tis the season to be sharing… with my sister. AGAIN. 🙂 What’s next? We’ll have to wait and see!!
What do you think of MOH Big Eye’s engagement session? Can you tell they play guitar and love music? Is anyone else shrendoring too?
