The Wedding Industry
We met at a previous job and both immediately clicked. We have a very similar personality, a love for craft beer, and of course photography! We had the opportunity to photograph a friends wedding together and in the hotel elevator going up I said ,“we should do this for a living”, I agreed and the rest is history!
The Wedding Memories
All of the weddings we shoot are memorable! Every wedding is special and unique based on the personalities of our clients. We feel so lucky to have met so many interesting people though this line work! We get to spend one of the happiest days of their lives with them and for that we are truly grateful.
We love seeing our past couples at current weddings because they have recommended us. It’s a chance to reconnect with them and see how they are doing, and that’s the best gift.
We started Year and a Day Photography in 2012 after photographing our first wedding together. Everything just clicked and it was easy to decide this is what we were going to do. The hardest part was thinking of our name. We had some of the funniest ideas, we texted ideas back and forth for weeks! It all came together with our love for music and the Beastie Boys. Belinda sent me a text that said “Year and a Day”, which is a song in a song ( B Boy Bouillabaisse) from their album Paul’s Boutique. It’s one of the few songs where Adam Yauch has a major vocal part and it felt right since it was right after he passed away. If you don’t know the song, you should make sure to listen to it!
