Let’s talk about…SHOES!

  The bride’s shoes are one of the first things I find myself photographing on the wedding day, along with the dress, jewelry and other details. Choosing the perfect pair can be a tough decision: should you be chic, taller and possibly uncomfortable in heels or cute and comfy in flats or sandals? The weather […]

I would like to say Jeannie is a dear friend of mine and the most amazing photographer I have ever seen, I chose years ago to have Jeannie as my Bridesmaid in my wedding rather than my photographer. Although I don’t regret for a minute her being in my wedding because I love her dearly. I do regret not having her as my photographer, I went the cheap route and got burned, my photographer picked up and moved out of state after my wedding and I had to take him to court to get the pictures I ordered and paid for because he had lost my pictures. It all turned out well in the end I did get my pictures, but most were not what I has asked for and were not well done. So if I had to do it all again, Jeannie and Equinox Photography would and always will be my first choice for photographs. Jeannie you are amazing.

Thank you, Scott, Zofia and Angie. And Angie, it was an honor to stand up with you on your wedding day. I remember being pretty angry for you when your photographer didn’t deliver your photos and you had to go through all that craziness to get them.

One thing I’d like to recommend to couples is that it is totally ok to ask for references from your wedding photographer. That way, you can hear from their past clients and how they felt about their experience.
