We have a winner!

Congrats to Caroline and Josh. I just received the contract for their September 2008 wedding. Theirs was the first to come in since I announced my Martha Stewart cake book offer. Hope they find inspiration in the book for a beautiful -- and delicious -- wedding cake.

Martha Stewart on Weddings

I love bridal fashion. Just ask me how many dresses I tried on for my wedding! Badgley Mischka showed dresses on Martha's wedding show. In a word -- stunning. They pointed out something so obvious but worth repeating: that the back of your dress is as important as the front because that's what people will be seeing throughout the ceremony. The closest store that carries Badgley Mischka is L'elite in Boston.

One of my favorite foods is cake. I love cake. Talk about finding a job that ends with the best perk -- a slice of wedding cake! And of course, Martha Stewart is showcasing some beautiful cakes. I personally love photographing pretty cakes but if it doesn't taste good, really what's the point? I have a great idea. The next couple who signs a contract with me will receive a copy of Martha Stewart's Wedding Cakes book. But you must promise me a piece of your wedding cake!

Weddings on Martha's Show Today

I know this is short notice but I just saw that this morning's Martha Stewart Show is all about weddings. It's on here at 10 AM. If baby let's me, I'll watch it and post some highlights here.

My friend, colleague, and former assistant, Jenn Blume, got engaged last night to her sweetheart, Tom! They have been together for almost ten years and are about to embark on a very exciting year together. I couldn't be happier for them and wish them all the best as they start this phase of their lives. Oh, and check out her beautiful ring...

PS I happen to know a good wedding photographer when they are ready to get married!

O Henry

I've survived my first week alone with baby Henry. He has certainly tried to break my heart with many hours of crying and screaming. But he always makes up for it with the sweetest snuggles and the softest kisses. I am completely amazed by how much he has grown in his first two weeks at home. The lack of sleep is starting to take its toll. I long for the day when he will sleep through the night in his crib!

While Henry is in this very fussy stage I'm finding it hard to get much work done. I am fielding inquiries and setting up meetings for weekends. I've also been placing album orders and getting proof products out as soon as they come in. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need anything. I'm checking emails and getting voice mails regularly.

Happy Client

I just received this wonderful recommendation from a client. Thanks, Rachel, for the kind words.

"Hiring Amy to photograph our wedding was one of our best decisions. Throughout the entire planning process she was helpful, incredibly responsive and professional. On the wedding day, she had a great energetic spirit that made her fun to be around. We couldn't be happier with her photos, she has a great eye for capturing moments."

Oh Baby

These past two weeks with baby Henry have been wonderful -- and exhausting! Life will certainly never be the same again. Every day he melts my heart with a new expression or sound or snuggle. And while I can't wait until I'm fully recovered from labor and delivery and we get on a more normal schedule, I'm loving this time with such tiny baby. Work has definitely taken a back seat -- it's hard to work with a baby curled up on your chest! -- but I'm hoping to keep up with emails and phone calls over the next couple of weeks. Thanks again for all of your warm wishes. It means so much to us to know that Henry is being welcomed by our community.
