Friday, April 11, 2008 to Raleigh/Durham!

One of the nice things about living in the Tri-State area is the options I have to fly anywhere in the country at a moment's notice. I know, I know, some of you may be shaking your heads smiling. Yes - traveling from EWR, JFK, and LGA are not the most fun airports in the world - or clean - or easy to navigate. However - I can fly ANYWHERE in the world and most times non-stop. I have options with airports and several flights to choose from.

Since I mostly fly from Newark, I find myself on Continental quite often. Given the recent events with airlines going out of business or canceling flights, I feel very fortunate to be able to have Continental as my main choice for flights and 99.9% of the time can fly direct preventing me additional delays.

The New York area may not be the most convenient, but an awesome "jumping off" point to travel anywhere in the world. If you live in NYC and planning your wedding "elsewhere", wouldn't it make sense to hire your photographer where you live? Remember, the wedding is just one part - you have the engagement shoot (and nothing beats NYC for these!), pre-wedding consultations and album consultations. I love to be able to meet with my clients in person for these....

Case in point - I'm off to Raleigh/Durham this weekend for Lossie and Stephan's wedding this weekend. They live in Brooklyn, but decided to get married in Lossie's hometown. Lossie wanted to wait for warmer weather to do their engagement shoot, but how awesome will it be to have NYC and her hometown for their pics!?

This morning I had an on-time departure even with all the delays across the country and the American Airlines debacle! I'll be joined one of Orlando's hottest photographers Abby Liga. More later!

April Fools!

LOL - they say the best practical jokes are the ones that have some truth to them. I think this was a good one. :) I love April fools day!

As my friends have pointed out - I'm a NY'er and I'm not going anywhere. However - truth be told, I do love the west coast, and am looking to shoot a few weddings out there each year. As an artist, it is always fun to change your surroundings. My biggest problem has been having a "home base" to meet clients - I don't do coffee shops anymore. :) So if you're a photographer on the west coast who'd like to shoot in NYC and want to do some "studio swapping" please contact me privately so we can chat! card goes to Colin's comment, he knows how I feel about lateness and from my experience, it's a little more "laid back" out there. :)

July 2008 blog post:
"I can't take it, I'm going back! Why is everyone always 15 minutes late to everything here!?!"

That is probably spot on. :) Thanks for all the comments everyone!
