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’s Porters’ Pub Engagement

Easton’s Porters’ Pub Engagement ~with Amanda & Bryan

We had a fun engagement session with Amanda and Bryan at Porters Pub in Easton, Pa. This is the spot where they enjoyed their first date.
Even though it was restaurant week in Easton, the staff and customers at Porters were very kind to allow us access and put up with us while we created images. Afterwards, we stayed and enjoyed some great food and drinks. The planning is going full force for their wedding celebration in August.

Here are a few of my favorites from their session.

Bethlehem Steel Stacks Bat Mitzvah Photographers

Bethlehem Steel Stacks Bat Mitzvah Photographers  ~ with Izzy

January 14th was Izzy’s Bat Mitzvah celebration with her family and friends at the Bethlehem Steel Stacks & ArtsQuest.  The religious service was at Temple Beth El in Allentown, Pa.
Although the mixed weather of snow and rain put a damper on any outdoor family photos,  the party inside was jumping with heat from DJ Pure Event Group.
Izzy looked like a princess in a beautiful light pink dress and her Nike sneakers that were glammed up. Needless to say, everyone danced the night away, especially Izzy and her dance crew who did a private show for the guests.

Here are a few from her day.

Lehigh Valley bridal portraits

Lehigh Valley bridal portraits ~ with Niki

Niki and Brian had their wedding on May of 2016.  She was pressed for time and we really didn’t have a window to get more images. At the time we figured we would go back to Bear Creek on their anniversary and get more images, since she is our daughter =) But the calendar has been filling up with weddings and Mitzvahs so we had to put that idea on hold. I thought I had better get some photos before she couldn’t fit in her dress any longer due to family expansion ideas =) so with little Kaylie and  Brian we put together some images for her in studio. We will still do the Bear Creek images but at a later date. We have 3 bookings at Bear Creek so far so maybe we will stay overnight after one of them and get images the next day. Considering we were in a slight hurry and they had little kaylie and she had pictures too, we were able to come up with a few. Also we didn’t have the luxury of a hair and makeup person. I think she did well 😉

Stroudsmoor Wedding Photographer ~ Heather & Scott

As most all brides do I’m sure Heathers Accu weather map app must of been opened at least once a day. It’s always a scary thing when it shows bad weather surrounding your wedding day…fourteen days ahead. =) She was prepared though and provided shawls for the girls. Much better than having to provide umbrellas. What was at first a chilly breezy day sure warmed up by the time their vows were spoken. The venue was at the Ridgecrest facility and the sun warmed up the Crestview Chapel overlooking the Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge nicely. As the sun set guests that ventured outside were warmed by the outside fireplace. Inside there wasn’t any need for heat as the party was heating up Ridgecrest. Congratulations to Heather and Scott. We wish them nothing but the best in life. =)

Recently we were at The Steel Stacks in Bethlehem for Izzy’s Pre Bat Mitzvah  photo session. That is where her party will be located so what better place to have her session. Her party theme will be dance and that’s just what she loves to do. It was a beautiful breezy fall day. In between locations Izzy bundled up to keep warm. Izzy was wonderful and full of happy faces. We are looking forward to her Bat Mitzvah next year.

Here are a few of my favorites from her session.
