Just one more slice…


I wasn’t much of a cake girl until I became a wedding photographer and was opened up to all of the majesty that cake can be. Beautiful and delicious. I’ve seen my share of cakes: red velvet cake, cheesecake, carrot cake, ice cream cake, and the myriad of toppings and fillings is enough to make my mouth water just thinking about them. But I’m not here to talk about wedding cake. Not really.

I am thrilled to announce that I’ve been invited to join Cake & Pictures, a website dedicated to highlighting select wedding photographers to brides and other vendors all over the world. The site is gloriously clean and easy. This fresh new company has both a site where you can search for a photographer by city/country and a blog that features fantastic images from the members. I am delighted to be listed alongside the likes of Cliff Mautner, Anna Kuperberg, Jim Garner, Meg Smith, Jose Villa, and so many more fantastic photogs. Talk about great company!

Though you can’t actually get any cake from Cake & Pictures (false advertising?), I assure you you’ll find incredibly awesome photographers who can photograph a cake like it’s their job. Because, well…

So check them out!

Here is the official press release for some more background:

Cake And Pictures Launches Boutique Wedding Photography Portal For Brides And Wedding Professionals

(Philadelphia, PA – USA) – Cake and Pictures is an exclusive directory of wedding photographers designed to connect discerning brides with the most talented wedding photographers in the business. The company, based just outside of Philadelphia, is the by-product of the hugely successful Wonderful Machine, a web-marketing portal for commercial photographers.
Unlike other websites, Cake and Pictures presents only a limited number of photographers in each location, allowing the work of all of its members to stand out and making it easy for brides to find what they are looking for. The Cake and Pictures web interface is simple and intuitive, so brides can browse photographers from around the world quickly and without the distraction of banner ads or pop-up windows. Cake and Pictures hand-selects the photographers that appear on the site specifically to appeal to brides for whom photography is a priority.
Cake and Pictures lists award-winning photographers in 50 cities and 24 countries around the world specializing in all types of wedding photography including fine art, traditional and photojournalistic. Brides can be confident they will find a photographer to match their style, whether their wedding is a quirky backyard affair or a black tie gala.
Philadelphia-based wedding photographer Shea Roggio started Cake and Pictures because he realized there was no single place for brides and wedding professionals to find a comprehensive list of the best wedding photographers in the world. He teamed up with wedding photographer Cliff Mautner and Wonderful Machine’s chief executive, Bill Cramer, to establish a boutique web portal that lists only the best wedding photographers in the business.
The result is a website like no other. Cake and Pictures is the new, one-stop shop for high-end wedding photography – baked goods not included. All Cake and Pictures photographers handle their own scheduling and pricing and can be contacted directly for rates and availability.
Visit www.cakeandpictures.com to start searching for the perfect wedding photographer. For more information, please contact Jean Murin at (610) 260-0234 or jean@cakeandpictures.com.

Oh, and don’t forget to save me a slice at your wedding… for purely photographic purposes, of course!

If the people have no bread, let them eat cake.

[Uptown Magazine] features Stacy + Mike
Last month, Uptown Magazine came out with a special ‘Weddings and Travel’ issue and featured couples from all over the country. It’s out on newsstands now but it’s already sold out at a number of stores. (I went to three and eventually called them up to order a copy for myself!)Stacy and Mike, my stunning couple from last year were one of the lucky few to be featured within. You might remember them as the couple who got married at Philadelphia's Stotesbury Mansion – she changed into electric blue ballet shoes at the end of the night. All smiles. They were awesome. Congrats, Stacy and Mike, so psyched to see you on the pages!
