The New York Wedding Workshop – January 31
“How to Hire a Photographer and Videographer”
Saturday, January 31, 2009
10 AM to 12:30 PM
The Gallery at The Prince George Ballroom
15 East 27th Street, between 5th and Madison Avenues
Course description: Are you overwhelmed by the sheer number of wedding photographers and videographers in New York? Are you wondering how to tell one from the other without calling and meeting each one? Who is right for your wedding and what should you be looking for? Join us for a step-by-step seminar that will take you through the research and selection process for two of the most important vendors you will hire for your wedding day. Learn about film vs. digital, black and white vs. color, flash vs. natural light, candid vs. photojournalistic, discs vs. prints and all the other “buzz words” you are flooded with as you pour over photo and video websites. Also, get tips on negotiating contracts specifically with photographers and videographers to get the best value and to actually walk away with the images you want. This course is well-suited for novice planners as well as brides and grooms. Light breakfast will be served. Call 212.206.0026 or email firstname.lastname@example.org before January 25th to purchase tickets at the discounted price of $30!
Gifts and goodies at the event!

After the Divine Studio Craft Sale, we grabbed brunch, then headed over the Bust Craftacular…another excellent sale! It was just as crowded as last year, but equally as fun. Saw Tara from Ink+Wit and Julie from Bow+Arrow…both had some great new designs…Tara’s new tea towels are my favorites. Jenny seemed to enjoy the Luchador masks…:)

On Sunday I headed out to the craft fairs with Anne and Jenny…one of my favorites to hit by FAR is the Divine Studio Craft Sale…Jenny bought a FABULOUS necklace that she was complimented on literally the entire day, we got to see familiar faces Rebecca from Moontree Letterpress and Deb from BonbonOiseau, and discovered Kristen Aronsson, who made those amazing leather peacock hairclips above. Next Christmas, keep your eyes open for announcements about this sale, because its definitely worth checking out.
