Alan Abrams Photography Featured in Newsday’s 2012 Bridal Planner

As far as news is concerned, it really doesn’t get much bigger than this!

We’ve been featured in the latest issue of the Newsday’s 2012 Bridal Planner! Not only have some our photos been featured in a few of the articles, we also had the honor of having one of our 2011 brides on the front cover!

When the writers and editors from Newsday first contact us back in November, to say I was a bit stunned would be an understatement. They wanted to use OUR images in their bridal planner! I mean how cool is that?! We’ve always felt our work was top notch and our couples have been as thrilled with us as we’ve been with them. Having great relationships with our couples has always been the cornerstone of what we do. It’s something I feel comes across well in our images. For our work recognized by a publication as big as Newsday is extremely flattering, not only for us but for all of our couples as well.
