Thank you to all of our service men and women on this Veteran's Day for all you sacrifice to protect our freedoms. We are so very lucky to live in this country! On the Blog today, I have a very special love story of one of our veterans who I recently had the honor of photographing in a wonderful surprise portrait session. You do NOT want to miss this one!

A great read from the Huffington Post being shared by many pro photographers. The argument for why just getting a disk of digital images from your wedding and nothing else may not be the best idea. Really applies to any professional photographs you want to keep in your family for years to come.
