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.

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

Easton Family Photography

It’s about family |Easton Family Photography

When you look up “family” in the dictionary, this is what you get  “a social unit consisting of one or more adults together with the children they care for”

That’s pretty basic, almost cold sounding. With the Collins family you get much more than that. You get a mom and dad who care and provide deeply for their children. You get older and younger sisters and brother who still have fun with each other, love each other, argue with each other and help each other. A family that still do things together as a family. A mom who always remembers to call me when it’s that time again for family photos. “Melissa’s going away to college soon, I need family photos” =)  Mom, understands the importance of family images. I’m not saying this because I photograph people, but it really is important to have photos of family and friends. I also mean paper photos you can hold in your hand, carry around and look at whenever you want, and share with whoever you want. You can’t tape cd’s or a thumbnail drive to that poster board at your daughters 16th, 18th or 21st birthday party. or Mom or Dads 50th. =)  When news stations cover a tornado or hurricane and visit the victims, one of the first things they panic about is losing all their family photos.

Having lost a lovely young daughter, I know first hand how important it is to have photos. Lots of them. Sometimes it’s the only thing that helps.

So, another year goes by, the kids get older. Some move out, some move far away. But, as long as you have those photos, at any time you can go back and relive any moment you like.

Here are a few of those moments…and silly ones =)

Clinton NJ Wedding Photographer

A Clinton, NJ wedding with Joseph & Laurel

We had the pleasure of being apart of two great families coming together as one in the Evangel Chapel, Clinton, NJ. A beautiful late August day. Both families and friends included many children in the wedding party and preparations. Each child seemed excited and did very well. Joe and Laurel incorporated the cartoon character, Sponge Bob, in a video send off at the church. So, we incorporated Sponge Bob in a couple images for them for fun =)
