Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, NJ

We enjoyed a perfect day visiting the Grounds for Sculpture - this is a place to visit again and again. The experience begins with the trip in from RT 95, passing sculptures along the road bringing you into the park. I was compelled to use my 15mm fisheye lens for most of the images !!!!

Wedding Trends Surveys

First let me back up and repeat the survey released one year ago - in a survey conducted of 422 women who had been married in the previous 12 months, 22% said that they realized good / great photography was worth paying for, and if they could do it again they would spend less on the dress and more on the memories.
With that said, a survey this January 2011, of 500 women (again recently married) stated that they spent too much on the food and wish (21%) they had spent more on the photography !

Something new in this year's survey is that 74% approve of the new trend for the photographic capture of the engagament. With Grooms-to-be going to great lengths to be creative and thoughtful in preparing for 'popping the question' - the Brides-to-be are in favor of the hidden photographer who can capture this most romantic and emotional moment.

In another survey released this month, the conclusion is that brides are remaining committed to to planning a luxurious and memorable event, and they are willing to spend what is necessary despite the state of the ecomony. This survey goes on to reveal that brides tended to lower the number of guests at the wedding rather than lower the standard of the wedding.

So Brides-to-be and friends of the bride - remember the valuable message - your wedding is a most memorable occassion - and the best photography will preserve those memories !
