There were lots of great photographers mentioned in your comments, but by random selection, #42 Lorena B. wins the book! Lorena, please send me your address so Jose can get your book out to you! And thanks to everyone who entered.
I was pretty amazed when last week I received an email from photographer Jose Villa about this new book that PDN put out called Wedding Photography Unveiled [he shot the cover and is featured in the book]. Written by Jacqueline Tobin, its a great look into what really goes into wedding photography, and features the work of 20 amazing photographers from all over. I received my copy the other day [its quite beautiful!] and Jose is letting me give away a copy to one of you lucky readers! Leave a comment below on who YOUR dream photographer would be if you could do it all over again, and a winner will be picked at random and announced on Friday. Thanks Jose! [if you just can't wait, the book is available on Amazon for purchase]

Remember how I went to the Martha Stewart Show 2 weeks ago? Well, what you DIDN’T know is that right afterwards, I headed right back to Brooklyn to tape a How-Tuesday video with the cool kids at Etsy. The topic was DIY weddings featuring fabric, and I showed how to make an embroidered drawstring bag. Check it out if you’re interested.
