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.

Recently we finished up a pre~mitzvah session with Sam, at the JCC of allentown 
Sam’s Bar Mitzvah is coming up in April.

We do these informal sessions prior to a Bar~Bat Mitzvah to capture the teenager in their element, whether it be a hobby, sport or activity they are active in. This also helps to allow us more time to work with the families and become more comfortable during the bigger day coming up.

Sam’s sport is basketball so we captured some of those images for him. We look forward to  his celebration.

Here are just a few from his session.

Engagement Photography

Engagement Photography ~ In NYC Bryant Park

Bryan had a master plan to propose to Amanda during their family trip to NYC to see the Christmas tree. It was planned since April of this year and only a handful of people knew of the secret for months. As the month of December approached, Amanda’s dad needed surgery and everyone worried the proposal would need to be postponed or changed. However, Amanda’s dad pushed through and refused to miss this amazing day for his daughter. The weather wasn’t great but the excitement of everyone involved was in the air – nothing was going to get us down! The proposal was magical even in the rain. Congratulations to Amanda and Bryan as they begin their new journey down wedding lane.

Here are a few images for their day.
