It’s the start of the new year, and I am already trying to get my house in order, financially-speaking. As a small business owner, tax season comes four times a year, so I need to get everything ready in January. As I am compiling my own receipts, it got me thinking about the business side of your big day: are weddings tax-deductible?
You’re engaged, now what???
Did you know that the most popular time of the year to get engaged is from Thanksgiving through Valentine’s Day? Yes, folks, we are at the height of engagement season. As such, I thought I might pass along a little advice on what to do first after you have said ‘Yes.’
Happy Fourth of July everyone! I hope you all are at a barbecue enjoying the day. I’m off to a party in Long Island City to watch the fireworks over the East River, but in the meantime, I thought you might be interested in what it would take to host your own private fireworks display.
I hope you are all having a great start to your week! Monday is over, so we only have the weekend to look forward to. On that happy note, I wanted to share with you a few tips I have developed over the years for how to take the best family photos.
Engagement shoot season is in full gear here in New York City. As such, I thought I would present to you my definitive list of engagement shoot ideas. I send this list to all of my new clients. One other resource I send to clients is a list of engagement shoot tips, featuring everything from what to wear to how to stand. If you would like to receive the list, just drop me a line and I will send it out to you pronto.
Cherry blossom season is upon us here in New York. It’s the one time of the year when the entire city seems to be in bloom. If you were thinking of having your portrait taken alongside the beautiful trees, now is the time to jump in front of a lens.
Hi everyone! To start off the week, I wanted to share with you a bar mitzvah I recently shot at Attic Studios. Ben turned the ripe old age of 13, and his family threw him a great party to celebrate. Far from the edge of boring, this bar mitzvah had all the key ingredients of a fantastic event: good food, lots of dance music, and plenty of space for guests to mingle.
Picture it: you’re at a wedding during the reception, sitting at a table with friends, when up pops the official wedding photographer asking you to stop everything and take a photo. If you’re like me, this always happens immediately after you’ve taken a big bite so you end up looking like the table chipmunk. Always.
I recently read an article entitled ’50 Brides Reveal What Their Photographers Could Have Done Better’ on Bride Box. It crushed me. The list of things that went wrong with these photo shoots all seemed like unforced errors that could have been prevented beforehand with a little better communication.
Happy Wednesday to you all! I am pleased to share with you a new set of modeling headshots that I took of aspiring model, April. The photos were shot lakeside in Winter Haven, Florida. We had great light, and were able to capture the natural beauty that was all around us.
