WOW!!!! I am thrilled and honored for a few reasons. First, I found out last night I was chosen as one of NJ Bride Magazine's "Love It" award. Only 16 photographers in the state were lucky enough to be chosen.
Editor Molly Tully says, "Our Love It list is indispensable for any bride planning a wedding in New Jersey, making it the premier go-to bridal resource. These are all the professionals—grouped together all in one list—who we truly love and trust to create the wedding you've always dreamed of. We want New Jersey brides to love every detail of their weddings, and these are the people who will help make that possible." As I said "WOW"!!!!!!
Now for a little bragging. This past year along with this award I was also recognized by "The Knot" as a top pick and 'Wedding Wire' as one of the best as well. Very exciting!! Which leads me to something that I have been meaning to blog for some time. I always encourage my couples to submit their images for 'real wedding's' stories in magazines and on blog sites. Well my amazing couple of MaryAnn & Ryan did just that. She got in touch with NJ Bride editor Molly Tully and she loved their images so much that for the first time in the history of the magazine they used a REAL couple for the cover. And as if that wasn't exciting enough, Molly reached out to me and asked for some other images. She ended up loving my couple Larissa & Steven so much she then made them the cover of the South Jersey edition of NJ Bride. So 2 covers!!!!!!! I also included from last winters issue another couple of mine, Jenna & Vincent who's wedding was orchestrated by one of NJ's premier wedding planner's Tina from 'Oh So Fab'.(and Love It award winner as well) Tina will stop at nothing to make sure your wedding is absolutely beautiful down to every last detail. I then received a call recently from the Daily News about my wedding at The Crossed Keys Inn of Jessie & Noah. They were interviewed and featured in their 'Down the Aisle' section of the Sunday paper.
I can not thank all my incredible couples enough who trust in me to capture one of the most important days in their life. I do not take it lightly and strive to be The Best and will continue to do so. I realize there are a lot of photographers out there and you have a choice.Thank you all again and to all my new couples I will stop at nothing to produce images you will hopefully one day see on the cover of a magazine!!
Here's the brand spanking new award given to only 16 wedding photographers in the whole state!!
