Melissa and Shane live in Texas but came back to Staten Island to get married where they grew up.
The bride found me on the internet and called me 2 hours before her ceremony to say her photographer cancelled. "I guess you didn't hire a professional", I said, and she replied "Yes I did. She was referred to me by the School of Visual Arts."
I just had to ask what they were paying her. Once I found out, I knew why the photog cancelled !?! (only kidding).
A true professional would never back out after they agreed or signed a contract- was there even a contract!?!
Anyway I helped them out the best I could by photographing the ceremony, the families formals and the bridal party on the boardwalk at South beach. After that I was off to a wedding of my own.
