Rangefindah!

Translation: Rangefinder! (said with a Boston accent)

Last year, after WPPI, I received an email from Rangefinder Magazine asking to run a featurette on me for the 2008 WPPI wedding issue. Rather surpised, but flattered, I agreed and thus we have the below article written by my new friend Linda May. (Linda is working on a novel when she is not writing for Rangefinder, so I would like to take the time to wish her luck on her adventures!)

With my article, I was asked to submit 25 of my favorite wedding images and after hours of trying to pick ONLY twenty-five, I sent my images and put the article out of my mind. That is until LAST WEEK when I received an email announcing that one of my images was chosen for the cover.
WHAT?! did you say COVER?!!?!
Again I was floored but honored to be given this opportunity. I cant thank my friends over at Rangefinder ( Bill, Abby, Linda, & Skip) enough for their kindness. Rock on Rangefinder!

Also, my sweet friends MeRa Koh and Amber Holritz make a debut in this months edition. It's a party between the pages!

The issue has been released online and the hardcopies will be distributed at WPPI next week!
YAY!!

OK, so I'm a bit late on this one. I had no idea your photo was on the cover when I saw you in Vegas. On Wednesday I stumbled across Rosanna's photo and I had to see who took it. WOW!!! What a surprise!! You totally deserve the cover and a great article. I can't wait to get my copy in the mail.

Keep in touch. Hope to see you at our PUG soon.
