Anne with One Fine Day Photography is SO AMAZING! Anne McCarthy has been photographing weddings since 1994. Her experience includes many years as a “film shooter”, including an overseas assignment with United Press International. Anne has multiple awards and merits from Professional Photographers Association of America and the Wedding and Portrait Professionals International.

The photos Anne took of my wedding are breath taking, I couldn’t have been happier with them. She is so creative, imaginative, and experienced. When it came to photos for our new blog site, I didn’t even have to think, I knew I wanted her to do them. As I expected Kristy and I are extremely happy with them!
