I was contacted today by Rangefinder Magazine! They are one of the top pro photographer magazines & publishing companies…they also put on the largest photo convention that I go to each spring in Vegas, WPPI….and they are a great company! So, I was SUPER honored today when they emailed me and asked if they could feature me as a spotlight photographer, do a profile on me…and feature my work in their magazine! Of course, I said HECK YEA…and let out a scream!! YAY!!! What a GREAT honor, I’m soo excited!!! It won’t be until a spring issue…but that’s fine with me! Being in any issue…is just awesome! So, here’s the deal, I NEED your help…I have to feature some work…so if you have just LOVED any specific image from an engagement or wedding recently…would you mind emailing me about it…or commenting. You can either describe it…or if you are a Mac user, shift+f4 it and email the snapshot to me! I would REALLY appreciate it!! THANKS!!! Did I mention that I’m soo excited!?!?! πŸ™‚

On another exciting note….this weekend is the BIG SURPRISE weekend that Mark is giving me as an anniversary gift!!!! So, I’m sorry…there will be a shortage of posts because I’ll be having a BLAST with my amazing husband (I CANNNNNNOT WAIT!!!)! I’ll be back next week, though….with LOTS of fun pictures of the weekend!! (the picture of us is on my anniversary suprise for him which was a new outfit, a great dinner at Sullivan’s and a holiday jazz concert! We had a blast…but I know it won’t hold a candle to his surprise because he is ALWAYS outdoing me!!) HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MARK, LOVE YOU TO PIECES!!! πŸ˜‰

  1. wow congrats on rangefinder! That is a great honor that you deffinetly deserve…. Cant wait to see that issue, and i’ll try and remember particular images I liked although theres so much to choose from it will be tough!

  2. How EXCITING!! You deserve it girl! You have the most amazing talent. Way to go! I hope you guys have a rockin’ time this weekend on your special trip. You guys are too cute in that picture.:) Looking forward to lots of pics (and lots of exclamation points!!!!). CONGRATULATIONS again on the magazine and the anniversary!

  3. BTW…my vote for favorite image is any of your more up close shots of the bride where their eyes are the focus. My favorite bride is Samantha of Samantha & Andy, posted 8/30/06. I love the horizontal shot where she is in the right 1/3 of the frame, hand against pole, reflection in the window. And of course any of your lens flare shots. I’m always a huge fan of the way you pull those shots off so wonderfully. You have so many incredible images…I don’t know HOW you are going to choose.

  4. Congratulations! that is such a cool honor. Well deserved, of course. Your images are just unique and fantastic. Looking at them always inspires me and I’m sure all that read that issue of RF will feel the same.

  5. YOU ROCK!!!!! Congratulations!!! You are SOOO deserving of it!!!!!!!

Have a blast and Happy Anniversary:)

  18. The photo of Kara Centofante waving out the window of the Bentley looks like it belongs in Town & Country magazine. It is an absolutely magical photo. It gets my vote.
