One of the first decisions we made during wedding planning was hiring our photographer, Anni, of Anni Cee Photographie. Anni and I met several years ago online through blogging and social media. I ran a DIY blog and Anni was starting her photography business—we exchanged comments and emails and countless tweets. I got the opportunity to meet her in person for the first time while she was visiting LA (Mr. Tractor and I lived there at the time), and she was just as sweet and wonderful in real life as she was on the internet! During a road trip later on, we both got to meet her again in Chicago.

I feel so lucky to know Anni; she really is a true friend, even though we’ve only truly met a few times. She is an amazing photographer, and I’ve been able to watch her talent grow over the years through her online portfolio and blog. Though she is not based in Boston, Mr. Tractor and I decided it was worth it to have someone we love and trust shoot our wedding, and we made the decision to fly Anni out for our wedding.
