Marc Anthony Photography – Free Family Portraits at Pier A from 9am-4pm Today! Holy Free Stuff Batman!

Filed under: Free Stuff,Hoboken,photo — Tags: , , — TheBoken @ 9:00 AM

On Wednesday November 21st, Marc Anthony Photography will be shooting free family portraits at Pier A on 100 Sinatra Drive in Hoboken, NJ. He will be there from 9am to 4pm. Any family affected by Hurricane Sandy is free to come and have their photo taken. The images will be placed online for you to freely download and print.

Marc Anthony adds”

“I am shooting these portraits simply as my little way to do something. New Jersey is my home and my heart breaks for those that lost everything. Homes can be rebuilt but photos can’t be replaced. That’s why when I fire happens in a home photos are usually the first thing people try and save. I’m not in this for any personal reason. I shoot weddings and I’m busy enough as it is to use this for personal gain. I just want to make that clear. So if you want a free photo taken to mark the start of something new then please come by.”
