In the old days photo on special occasions would have to include a professional photographer just to have to have a shot of everyone with proper background and group shots. It’s expected that all of your friends should have remembrance of your special occasion together so it’s a must that each one should have been photographed. Photos are memories and like most people I treasure my old photos just like precious jewels. I love photography and on many occasions at home, in school and in my office I always take the responsibility of shooting events which I do with the best of my capabilities. I’m just an amateur but I take pride in what I’m doing and my shots prove my dedication as they always told me I have good shots. Of course my kids are my best models because they inspire me with doing what I love to do.
One disadvantage of being an official or volunteered photographer of the event is that you’re not included in the picture and sometimes you’ll realize that you don’t have your own remembrance and memories. So it’s a nice respite that photobooth are now here to solve such cases. Renting a photobooth not only assure everyone that they have memorable photos to bring with them but make an occasion as festive as possible. Everyone can have chances to have their own photos in their chosen background or style. This is just perfect for any occasion like birthdays, baptismal, alumni, office parties, home parties, weddings and a lot more celebrated occasions in life.
It’s even better to think that when you want to look for a photobooth equipped with the best camera, background, lighting and printing results you can have it now with the latest innovations in photobooth rentals. It’s also such perfect wedding ideas to include state of the art photobooth customized to your specific requirements for logos, text, dates and background unlike the traditional wedding photos. Let it capture the event’s memories with precise quality, convenience for the guests and complete fun memories for all. Now you can just snap, smile and print.
I’ve attended and witnessed several weddings in my life and on most of those occasions I felt emotional. I’m a romantic at heart and I can remember college days reading romantic novels on my free time. I always thought that true love will eventually ends on the altar and have a happy life ever after. Well it seems that not all weddings end up that way but dreamers like me can only hope and pray for the best. Anyway when it comes to weddings I’m very conscious of how the hired photographer and videographer do their job. I observe how they do their pictorials and video coverage and wonder how it feels to be like them.
They must have confidence that they know the right thing, the right angle and moves, the background and the setup. They’re the ones who direct when and where shots should be taken and responsible for any mishap regarding needed photo shots of the whole wedding occasion. I learned that insurances for their professional job is available now like videographer insurance which should cover a videographer if anything should happen when his videos encountered trouble or some sort of problem. This is good for them and for all professional who do services for their client as they will be assured that if anything happens when they do their job they will be covered by professional liability insurance.
The holiday will soon be over but still I’ve got plenty of things to buy for gifts. In our church we’re celebrating the holiday on New Year ’s Day and we’ll give our gifts on that day including our gifts for our godchildren. Since today is a holiday also and no office work I’ll just finish all my online tasks and I’ll be shopping the whole day. Together with my kids we’ll buy food for the midnight dinner on New Year ’s Eve and the rest of the gift list I have. The other day I was looking at the mall store’s gifts for him offers because they cut down the price at 50% off the original price. DH will have his birthday next month and I thought of buying my gift for him ahead of time. I’m still thinking what he really wants for his birthday so I decided not to buy until after the holiday.
We’ve talked about our travel in Laguna next week and asked my brother if I could use his other car as our car is not fit now to a long travel. We’ll attend my nephew’s wedding and we need to be there early in the morning. The groom is my first cousin’s youngest son and they asked if we could all be there since it’s their last wedding in the family. When my kids heard about it they started planning things and activities that they will do in the province. It’s going to be all fun for them since it’s very seldom that they go for vacation in our hometown. Josh is asking about life in the province and the animals that he’ll be able to see there. He’s also inquiring if there’s horse equipment that he can use so he’ll be able to ride a horse while we’re there.
As early as now they’re planning where they will go first after the wedding and reception. My cousin is planning a swimming after the reception because the place is actually a resort. She asked us to bring extra clothing so when we decide that we’ll stay in the resort the kids can swim and will not worry about change of clothing. Oh it’s going to be a family bonding not just for my own family but for all of us including my siblings and Mom. We’re now getting so excited and even hired one of our church mate to accompany my husband in driving the zigzag road in the mountains. I’m looking forward now to that day.
My friend who is on the family way now is very excited about her forthcoming delivery of baby that she’s planning to have birth announcements soon. She’s hoping that it would be a baby boy because it’s going to be her last baby also. She has two girls already and they’re praying that they will be blessed with a baby boy this time. She’s telling one of our friends that it would really be good if she’ll have the same pattern of babies like me who had two girls and one boy. Well we didn’t really asked for a boy as we would be happy to have three girls if God has given us another girl instead of a boy. It’s just a real blessing that He’s given us our Josh, a very charming baby boy who now has grown up to be a very loving and smart kid.
Did you experience having plenty of special occasions for your loved ones on your list and you’re short of cash? It’s not an unusual situation because birthdays and other events may come at a time before your payday and you may be running out of cash by then. Most of the times we prepare our gifts for our family and friends ahead of time but there are times that there are extra expenditures that come in our life that will cause us to have deficit in our budget. So when this thing happens to us we’ll think of someone whom we may borrow money from or lending agencies that will give us what we need with interest rates and plenty of document requirements. Well it’s not that easy to complete documents and if you’re in such a hurry for a small loan only it’s too tasking to do.
Now you don’t have to think of the list of family and friends to ask financial help because with payday advance you can say goodbye to slow processing time of loans and plenty of required documents to fax. This is the solution for small loans requirements of many people who runs out of money but can pay in short-term payment method. Since the need is not that big and the processing will only take a day or overnight it’s also a short-term loan only. You can borrow from $100 up to $2,500 without a credit check. Application is as easy as 1-2-3, no fax required documents, best rates and security assurance.
I’ve met one of my friends last Sunday and he was very happy because they’ve won in raffle promo they joined a month ago. The name of their child was picked in the monthly draw and the prize is a complete birthday package in the number one and most popular fast food chain in the country. It’s such good news for them because they can enjoy the birthday party of their child with all expenses paid by the sponsor of the raffle promo.
The only worry of my friend is how to control the number of guests since it’s a common habit of others to go along to every party that they know. I told him to give or send print invitations to their selected visitors and calculate the number of visitors according to the number of invitations they sent. He’ll have to double the ratio of the invitations to attendees as one kid will be accompanied by one or two adults. He thanked me for the suggestions.
One of the unforgettable events in my life was when I got married, accepting Ed as my lifetime partner. After almost two years of engagement we decided to bind our love covenant and bow in the presence of the Almighty God fifteen years ago. Our parents gave us the blessing to set the date of the wedding and they also help us to choose sponsors or persons to stand in our side as our second parents. In order to formally invite in advance our extended families, cousins, friends and other office mates in that time we used wedding invitations, wherein detailed the date, and exact venue of the wedding and reception. We personally brought or hand over the to the house of our expected guest and their respective families.
