GUEST BLOGGER: G E MASANA

My good friend G E Masana- a premier photographer and all around great guy, sent me this article. What great advice for all you couples looking for that perfect fit in a photographer with style and vision. Visit G E Masana's web site and REALLY read and see his reason for taking pictures. It won't take you long to decide who should make the memories of your day come to life! Thanks G E for this great insight.

Breaking News: There's a new definition for "unique":
Now it means "Cookie Cutter" and "Copy Cat" - when it comes to your wedding photos.
A popular wedding website recently interviewed a wedding photographer asking how a bride can get unique wedding photos from her photographer.
The professional's answer may actually shock you.
A "must have" shot, she advised, would be to find a "really cool graffiti wall" and "stand in front of it."
Is that what unique is?
Search Google Images for "wedding photos graffiti wall" and it returns 6,940,000 results. That's right - almost seven million of those same trendy shots.
Considering that there are only about two million marriages a year in the U.S. that's a heck of a lot of graffiti in people's wedding photos!
Not anything I'd call unique. Would you?
Part of the problem for populating newlyweds’ love nests en masse with these types of wedding pictures is the well-intended but "follow-the-herd" thinking many wedding photographers have today. They're lovely people I'm sure yet maybe they haven't yet come to appreciate what really makes a bride's wedding photography truly unique and not a snapshot..
It's true that many brides don't particularly care one way or the other beyond that. After all, brides are people too... and people do things like, copy what the next person's doing. Do whatever's "hot" today. That's why back in the 80's lots of brides had the big hair and poofy wedding sleeves. They just followed the trend.
But there are (and have always been) brides (and grooms!) who stand apart and care more about acquiring something far more meaningful for themselves... something they can truly call unique... in their wedding photography.
Which is why I wrote down my 10 essential tips ( Click to get your free copy here) that actually will make your wedding photos unique. I couldn’t stay silent any longer.
Working with hundreds of brides and grooms as a NYC wedding photographer and seeing first hand what does mean something to them has given me insights. True, I also have the advantage of brides writing me on their anniversaries because they wanted to thank me again and tell me how their wedding photos have become ever more significant to them with time - and why that's so.
In other words, these insights are time tested and proven.
So I've gleaned tons of aha! moments out of all my experience. And I'm going to share some of those light bulb moments with you.
This is obviously not for everybody. It's insight for discerning couples who seek something more desirable and personalized out of their wedding photos. These tips are anything but routine. You won't see them all mentioned in any wedding magazine... evidently. But they will make a significant difference in your resulting wedding photos - plus they even have a side effect of making your wedding day experience more enjoyable as well! And who wouldn't want that?
If you're a bride or groom you can grab your personal copy- here right now. For free.
I don't know how long I'll be giving away this information but if you'd like to achieve better, more meaningful unique wedding photography - get your copy now in time to easily put these tips in motion for your wedding.
Enjoy!
