Relais du Soleil Wedding Photography at Glen Ellen (New York Times Feature)

Sara & Mike at their wedding today in Relais du Soleil

Because you're going to need to pick up a copy of the NEW YORK TIMES!

Because I AM IN IT!

Okay, so Sara & Mike are in it, but one of my PICTURES IS IN IT! CREDITED!




I was trying to explain this to someone not familiar, but the NY Times Wedding section is not like any other wedding section of any other paper in the country. You can't just submit an announcement and get your name in the paper. You have to be "worthy," you have to have a good story, you have to jump through some hoops, have a picture of high enough quality to print, be good looking, have eyebrows of equal height (???) and a bunch of other secret, mysterious criteria that causes only 20 or so announcements (only a few of which get full articles) to be published on any given Sunday despite the fact thousands of couples marry in the tri-state area every week- And Sara & Mike didn't even get married in New York. They got married in Glen Ellen, California. Yep. And they got in. With my pic. Cuz I'm the shizzzzz.

Okay, maybe they are the shizz, but you were going to find that out anyway once you read the article. :) They are one of the most amazing couples I have ever worked with; I am so proud and blessed to have been able to have been there with them on their wedding day. Mike & Sara initially met through the Peace Corps, but didn't date until much later. You can read a little more about that in their engagement post, HERE and watch their engagement film, shot in Washington DC, where they reside.

... (and back to squealing...) Can't wait until the morning when I can buy my copy of the paper! :D
