Recently, I was the recipient of an out-of-the-blue experience. The good kind. It came packaged in the form of a phone call from The Knot (with a bow on top)...as in www.theknot.com...as in the largest all-in-one-resource-everything-a-bride-could-possibly-need-for-her-perfect-wedding theknot.com.
Turns out I have a raving review on their site from my recent bridal client.

The Knot spotted it, did some research on me (my work and website) and wanted to extend an invitation to provide me the opportunity to be one of their featured photographers on their main site and affiliates (Wedding Channel, etc.). They loved my work and felt I would be a good match with what their thousands of South Florida brides are looking for. My website design, content and ease of use was commended as well. Now, I'm generally not one to "toot my own horn", but if I said I didn't do a little happy dance in the aisles of Target (yes, yes, the very nice, Ms. Marketing, caught me being a totally normal person while Christmas shopping)...I would be lying.
[insert awkward public dance moves]
Although I'm not going the route of mass marketing right now, it was a very cool day. In fact, I might just have some of those dance moves leftover and tucked away in my back pocket for a rainy day.
