michele + brian wedding at the garrison NY

When I first met with Michele & Brian and they told me about this place, the Garrison in NY, they talked about the view and how beautiful it was. I checked it out online and though, ‘yeah it is pretty’ but when Mike and I got there this past Saturday we were just so excited with how much prettier it is in person! Not to mention that the placement of the ballroom and ceremony site couldn’t be any better with where the sun sets! It’s just beautiful- and the people who work there were SO nice and a pleasure to Read More

So every year I do Mayor Mike’s they do a little write up in the Courant about the show, and pretty much every year they neglect to even mention my NAME, let alone give me any kind of props for shooting!
This year someone must have made a phone call…. which I am thankful for! I guess I am in today’s Hartord Courant blabbing on and on about stuff… kind of like now!!!
It is also online as well, but no picture of me, that is only in the hard copy.
