An important note to all my readers, couples and future brides to be....

Last week I found out that my wedding photography website - www.brklynview.com - was recently hacked by spammers. They took over my webpages and inserted hundreds of lines of fake code promoting the sale of handbags, headphones and other retail items. As soon as I realized what was going on, I worked with my hosting company to remedy the problem. All of the malicious pages were removed and my site is now protected with anti-malware software that can detect and remove this sort of thing immediately. Unfortunately, it's going to take several weeks or even months for Google to realize the changes and start pointing everyone back to my main site www.brklynview.com vs. a spam handbag site. (although I love handbags, I do not wish to sell them!) This has also affected my google page rankings which may make it harder for new couples or brides to be to find me (sigh). I was showing up on pages 1-3 and now have dropped to page 7 in searches. If you have tried to contact me or unable reach my site when searching in Google, I apologize for the inconvenience. Don't hackers have anything better to do than ruin a small business's website during wedding and engagement season? Sigh!



THE WORKAROUND: Please note you can go directly to my site by typing www.brklynview.com in your browsers address bar. You can continue to visit my blog, facebook, twitter, instagram and pinterest pages to stay up to date on what is going on and see my latest work.

CONTACT: For all inquires or media requests, please contact me at info (at) brklynview (dot) com.

Thank you so much for your continued support as I wouldn't be able to do any of this without you! Looking forward to hearing from you soon and Happy Holidays!!
