I have been in the customer service business all of my working years, in different forms of businesses. Emotions are what drive me to capture images. I like it when customers look at their photo's and the emotions from that day or event come rushing back. I use the best in Canon equipment. My style is both natural and off camera flash mixed with small to large light modifiers. I do all of my own image editing from conservative to extreme beauty retouching. I would like to use a quote from Photographer, Kevin Kubota. That, I myself work by. "I'm a photographic impressionist. I want to capture the mood, or feeling, of the scene as it stands before me. The mood can be entirely influenced by context, sounds, relationships, smells, tastes, history, fantasies, or even alcohol. How I convey that feeling is my individual style and art. The tools I use are inconsequential." I, like Kevin, carry a large tool box. I also design my own albums. Being able to provide this for my clients, offers them more variety and flexibility. My goal and persistence is to be the photographer that every client was happy they selected to record their life. DA Visions a wedding photography service in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding area. We use the finest Canon equipment and specialize in natural and off camera lighting. Photo composites and enhancements are our specialty.

New Jersey Engagement

New Jersey Engagement with Jackie & Alex

It was an early Sunday morning . We packed the car with equipment and headed east to New Jersey to meet Jackie and Alex for their engagement session. Tyson, their dog, also came along for some shutter time. It was a bit longer than usual and a few images more than usual but we had to soak up all the possibilities in front of us. =)

Early on it was a bit overcast, but we needed to get some images before the park got too busy. As the morning went on it did clear up some. We used off camera flashes gelled, along with natural light. We had a fun time. Both Jackie and Alex were easy to work with. Even Tyson was a good sport about it all. Jackie brought a few props along so we incorporated those also.

So many to choose,  but here are a few of my favorites.

Young Book GraphiStudio added to our album lineup

Young Book GraphiStudio

The elegant line, the purity of the colors, the accolades from the younger generation, make the Young Book
an extremely versatile project, iconic and always chic. The freshness of its inner nature is perfectly reflected by the name of this new line: YOUNG. The idea developed from the yet unexpressed need to create more flexible lines dedicated to young and trend-conscious couples.

Young dresses the Wedding Book with the style of its brand: intense colors, distinguished by steady lines and intelligent objects, such as the box and the accessories which complete this range, offer creative expressive chromatic notes. There are many different color combinations, ready to be customized and thus capable of satisfying even the most
refined tastes.

When we meet I will have a sample album and sample design options to help you choose.

A beautiful line from GraphiStudio made in Italy.
