A perk of the job to me is being able to play with my friends, come up with a concept and brainstorm it and then se it through! An even bigger and better perk is having one of my favorite magazines, Bliss Celebrations Magazine support us and our creative vision! Their publisher, Amy Blau is always so supportive of the creative design teams I am a part of. To be given such creative freedom from a publisher is truly amazing and freeing and most importantly… FUN! Amy brings so much support and love to the set each time and loves watching us try some …different things while shooting! Like… that time I decided that we needed to get a shot while our model was in the middle of a frozen little creek that meandered through the woods! It was FREEZING out but everyone pitched in and we banged it out without anyone freezing any more than they needed to!

These shoots always seem to tap into things that I feel I am good at but only make me better in the end…like my mad time management skills when the light is fading quickly and we have so many things left to shoot! Nothing gets me more fired up and excited when we need to plan ahead and figure things out like locations and looks with Beth and how long hair and makeup can have to swap looks and on and on and on…! (deep breath!) I love it! So. So FUN!

Huge, huge thanks to all of these amazing friends and fellow New England wedding vendors for playing in the snow with me!!
