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.

Temple Beth EL Bar Mitzvah Photographer

Temple Beth EL Bar Mitzvah Photographer with Danny

In May we captured Danny’s pre session images. Mom liked them so much she had a few enlarged to 4 foot for the Party at Bear Creek. The Temple session was completed on Friday at Temple Beth EL with the party the next day at Bear Creek. We have been to Bear Creek quite often this year. We love it there. Plenty of room to work and party plus the staff is tremendous. Our daughter held her wedding there last year. Again we worked with A Sharp productions, they always do a great job and get the party cranking. We hold only a few DJ’s close to heart and they are one of them. It’s great when the adults party just as hard as the teenagers. Family came from as far away as California to witness and celebrate Danny becoming a Bar Mitzvah. Mazel Tov to Danny.

Here are a few from the days events.

Jersey Shore Engagement Photographer

Jersey Shore Engagement Photographer ~ with Mary & Chris

We recently had the pleasure of capturing engagement pictures for Mary and Chris at the New Jersey shore area. We started out at Belmar Beach and worked our way North along the coast from there to Asbury Park and Long Branch. Little did we know when we set this date back in January that New Jersey would be holding their Marathon on that day, which took up the whole coastline we were working with except Belmar. Through it all they were fun to work with and good sports about everything. We look forward to their wedding celebration  in October of 2017

Here are just a few of my favorites.
