FYI: W@W Chat is our wedding podcast. Its first airing was in July 2011; it went on until Episode 79 last October 2013. Yes, we just might bring it back, but for now, enjoy our past episodes. We are randomly posting past episodes weekly, so we asked listeners/ readers/ W@Wies/ Supplier Friends to pick their fave and write an intro. This one is by Photographer Ian Santillan. Let us know which is your fave! ~W@W Team FAVE EPISODE – Metrophoto Oly Ruiz If there’s one thing that separates a photographer from being simply “good” as opposed to being “great”, it’s the drive to be the best.
