Fun times in NYC

A couple weeks ago I went down into the city for the PDN Expo with a few photographer friends. After the expo we had a great time eating, drinking, and doing what we do best... photo shoots! Click here to go to Robert and Kathleen's blog to see some pics from the day. Here is one of my favorites:


I am so excited! After much encouragement from friends and clients I have decided to enter my first wedding photography competition! Not only will this be a fun and challenging experience for me, but it is also benefiting a great cause: Thirst Relief. This amazing organization helps to provide safe, clean drinking water to people around the world. Did you know that nearly 2 million people die annually (90% of which are children under 5 years old) from lack of access to clean drinking water?
This competition is open to all photographers and I encourage as many as possible to enter!
Wish me luck!

I have the best clients ever!

After a very busy wedding season it feels great to sit back, relax, and think about all of the amazing couples and families that we have met this year. It is such an honor to be picked to photograph a wedding for a couple, and I can honestly say that it has been such a privilege for Josh and I to do so! It's really hard to put into words how great full we are for all of the kind words, big hugs, and seemingly never ending influx of referrals that we have been receiving! It puts such huge smilies on our faces when we receive a Thank You Card or email from our clients, and even other guests at weddings. Here are what a few of our clients have been saying:

Marc and Karen:

The pictures are great! We have looked at them at least a dozen times. We are soo excited to see the rest!.... After getting back from the honeymoon very late last Thursday night, we woke up Friday morning to find our pictures online. They look great! We received the Thank You cards (which also look great) and the DVD today. We also really enjoyed the recap of our wedding on your blog.

Kate and Andy:

Hi Candace,
You were such a wonderful photographer. It was a pleasure having you and Josh photograph our wedding.

Kristal and John:

Hey Candace! Thank you so much for capturing every moment at our wedding so brilliantly! We really love our photographs. You were so great with everything from helping me thru not liking my flowers and taking me away from the bridesmaid 'fight'. I really felt like I hired a professional friend for my wedding day. lol.

Rachel and Gary:


The book looks SO amazing, thank you so much for the extra images and for putting so much time into it. We love it!!!


I feel like a kid in a candy store!
