On a beautiful Saturday in early July, I had the pleasure of photographing the bridal shower of the lovely Amy, a not only talented actress but beautiful person inside and out. Amy is a New York City theatre performer who often stars in lead roles. She also does some film work and has made several appearances on popular television shows. Her fiance, Shane, hired me to take pictures as a surprise gift to Amy. Since he had to stay back in New York for business, he wanted to be sure it was extra special for her. The shower was held at Il Cielo, a charming little Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills, with an exceptional staff might I add. Amy was showered with gifts, hugs and kisses, and her genuinely warm-hearted personality touched all who were present (myself included). To Amy and Shane, congratulations on the engagement. I can only imagine how exquisite your wedding will be. Thank you for inviting me to be part of the journey.
