Meet Raeann Pellerin of Annie Rae's Photography

rae

Have you met my Friend Raeann? She is not just a Photographer. She wants to be YOUR photographer. She wants to show you that photographing your Wedding, event, and or family portraits should be fun, memorable, and relaxing. 

"My work stands out from others because I want to truly customize every moment of your experience. I don't want you to take photos in a studio if you aren't comfortable. Take me to where you got engaged, favorite place to go, the beach, anywhere. I don't have a particular type of photography I do. I customize what I do to what you need."

"I LOVE working with everyone to capture the special moments in their lives."

Shopping in the Garment District in NYC

 

I am so excited about the trip into Manhattan on the 14th, and I am pleased to see so many of you are as well. The response to this event has been great, and I am looking forward to a day of exploring.

 

This trip is great if you're a quilter, a sewer, a NYC lover, or if you just want to explore something new and stretch your boundaries. Husbands and kids are welcome...it's the perfect Mother's Day gift idea (Mother's Day is the week before!) if you're looking to leave hints. 

 

The ticket price of $95 covers your seat and the tip, and there is special pricing for groups of 5 or more. 

 

If you have questions about the trip, or if you're looking for something specific to see in NYC, give me a call at 603-233-0320 and let's talk about it. 

 

If you are thinking about coming with us, this is the time to be finalizing the plans and making the reservation.

 

I'll talk to you next week!
