Hello Ladies! I just wanted to let you know I am making my way into the wedding business as a photographer.

If you are in the NY/NJ area and are looking for a reasonably priced wedding photographer think of me!

{My Sign Off}

You plan and plan and plan for this one day, some of us for multiple years.  It starts off as a fairy tail, a surreal dream of sorts that you can only half imagine and then quickly becomes a huge list of “ to do’s” and decisions to be made.  It slowly consumes your life as you know it.

You begin to find that few other people out there are as excited about every detail of YOUR BIG DAY as you are. Not your mom or your maid of honor and usually not even your FI.  But you HAVE to share your every diy project, the story about your last fitting, your confusion between color palettes, and especially your triumphs when something gets checked off that overwhelming list!

Our internal bridal urge to spill every exciting detail and struggle and to be inspired by eachother draws us together. The simple fact that even though we may be worlds apart, we are traveling on the same emotional rollercoaste r. 

Because really, who are we kidding, we are innocently obsessed with our big day, to the point where by the end of it we are ready to throw up on ourselves  and how consumed we have been with everything about ou r wedding day and just be MARRIED already.

At the end of the fairy tale, when all is said and done, it is something we look back on with a strong sense of accomplishment, sentiment, and happiness, and then run to post pictures ASAP to share with all of our friends, our rocks, our PW community!

 Thank you ladies for listening, giving advice, and being a beautiful rock for me these past months.
