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.

Easton Wedding photographer goes to WPPI

Easton Wedding photographer goes to WPPI Event

This year I decided to make the trip to the WPPI ( wedding & portrait photographers international ) event at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas Nevada. There is nowhere else you can go and meet and talk with the industries best in the business. Scott Kelby, Zack Arias, Lindsay Adler, Jerry Ghionis, Cliff Mautner, to name a few of many. Two days of print competitions & awards, 4 days of tips tricks and sharing of knowledge. Three days of 2 huge arenas filled with every company you can imagine showcasing their products and offering show special deep discounts. 2 big after parties in some of the world’s top clubs offering free food and drink and entertainment. Sure, it was a far week long event, but It was worth the trip. It was a good time to get away from the long winter we’ve been having and get my batteries recharged up. I met some great people and found some great deals. There are so many options and products to offer customers that they can’t get anywhere else. It was good to be able to see them and check the quality. The nights in Vegas need no introduction, it’s a whole different world out there.

Newborn Ryan

Welcome Little Newborn Ryan,  fresh into this world just two weeks ago.

Along with Ryan came big brother Anthony and little sister Peyton. Being the youngest of the three, I’m sure he’ll have it easier 😉

Here is a little sample of their session.

Morris Plains NJ Wedding photographer

A Morris Plains NJ Wedding with Colleen & Steven

It was Saturday afternoon, October 5th, and rehearsal started on time. The sky was a beautiful crisp blue. I remembered thinking that man, tomorrows wedding will be a great event with great weather. And photos outside at the beautiful Bretton Wood Mansion will be awesome. Well,  one out of two isn’t bad. It was a great event, a special day for Colleen & Steven and both families. And I might add,  both families are super people. But, the weather didn’t cooperate. It didn’t matter though. Everything ran smooth and it truly was a happy day with happy people. We had a blast capturing this all day event. I wish I could share all the photos. Those Virginia Tech Hokies can sure party it up.

Here are a few from Colleen and Stevens special day.

Decoding Annie Parker

Facing Our Risk Empowered ~ F.O.R.C.E. ~ premiere screening of Decoding Annie Parker

Another hugely successful benefit screening of Steven Bernstein’s DECODING ANNIE PARKER in Philadelphia!
Many thanks to everyone who supported this wonderful event. This movie is indeed A MUST SEE! Decoding Annie Parker is a film that captures the raw emotions of women who find themselves going through Cancer. It captures the inner strength of the stricken, the strength that is provided through family and friends. We were honored to be a part of this event and feel blessed to be given the opportunity to meet and capture images of so many wonderful individuals.

This movie won’t be released until next year.  It was a powerful movie that everyone should see, not just Cancer or BRCA candidates.

Here are a few images from that night
