May 19, 2007: Marisa and Adam

It's been a frenetic, fantastic month, but now that I have a (small) break, I can properly tell you about some of the fantastic couples I've been working with.

I make it a point to get to know my couples well before the wedding day, which means I often get caught up in the emotion of the wedding. That definitely happened with Marisa and Adam, who were great to be around through the whole day. I mean, this is a couple that didn't even lose their cool when we were very nearly broadsided by a van blowing through a red light about 60 miles an hour. "Wow," said Adam, "Killed on our wedding day? We would have made the Post for sure!"

Hey, everyone. I've been keeping this under my hat for a while. I have been made the official Cameras and Photography blogger for Amazon Daily, the new blog run by Amazon.com. My first post just went up, see it here!

It will be a bit more aimed at novice audiences than some of the stuff that has been here, but I've been given a very loose rein. Also, FYI: I specifically worked out a compensation package that would let me be editorially independent -- I get no money at all from click-throughs or your purchases, so if I recommend something, it's because I actually believe in it.
