I got a call a few weeks ago from Ellen at the Knot. She was congratulating me! She said that every year brides on the Knot get to vote for their favorite local wedding professionals and that HHP had been chosen as a Best of Weddings 2010 pick for the Hudson Valley. To say that I was thrilled would be an understatement. I always aim to be one of the best parts of a couple’s wedding, to make spontaneous and creative images that they really love and to do it smoothly and with a smile. I’ve gotten a lot of feedback over the years that I had accomplished that goal for the people I had so much fun being with on their big day. It’s exciting to be recognized in this way, too. And now I get a little plaque to hang up in my studio.
