I Have Been Neglecting My Blog!

You know when you get really busy and you sometimes forget the little details. That's what I have been doing with this blog. I am not going to make any outrageous claim like blogging every day or anything like that, but I will try to do better. In my own defense, I did blog more last year than the previous year.

Just a few teaser shots from my first esession of the year. More to come later.

Esession Teaser

Although I am in the middle of wedding session, I am still doing quite a few engagement sessions on my few free weekends or days. So I am a little anxious to show off a few of them before the natural order of the esessions and weddings for my wedding clients this year. Check out just a few of these teaser images, but I promise to follow up with part 2 of Tiffany and Alex shortly.

Alex and Tiffany, Part 2

For their wedding day in early May, the weather was very nice and we did some great portaits just outside their church/reception site. I was in love with a bright red door and was happy to use it as a background. Alex and Tiffany were great with all my ideas and suggestions and are a really sweet couple. Thanks Tiffany and Alex for letting me be a part of your special day. DP

Jason and Kareema (future clients) and friends who gave Tiffany and Alex a huge gift.

I got to ride in the limo to the church - a rare opportunity for me. it was fun, but there was also prayer for the couple and the day.

I loved this detail shot of the rings!

This spread has my favorite images from the day.

This was the best ever removal of the garter belt and I have seen quite a few of them!

Alex and Tiffany, Part 1

It has been a busy year so far. I have reaached the middle of my wedding season and I haven't posted any new images. So I am playing a little catch up on blog posts.

Tiffany and Alex were my first wedding couple for the year and their engagment session was totally fun despite the ground being damp, the sky looking overcast, and the sun playing peak-a-boo during our session. Here are a some of my favorites from the day. DP

Tiffany's Mardi Gras-Themed Sweet Sixteen

I was thrilled to cover a Sweet Sixteen with a Mardi Gras Theme for wedding and event planner Hector Rivera of Savvy Occasions. His daughter's event was classy and fun. The event was held at Thommy G's in Audubon, New Jersey and every detail was taken into account. From the masks for all attendees to the centerpieces and other decorations. Everyone had a great time and the food was tasty. The cake was great to photograph and eat. Enjoy a few images from this event. DP

Happy 2009

Yes, I am a little late for New Year's, but better late than never. I just wanted to showcase some photos that I put together in a few different design forms. Yet, I don't claim to being a designer. In my opinion, good Graphic Design is a lost art form. Not everyone is a good designer or some people are just not very comfortable with designing things. I believe that I fall into the latter category. And guess what? I took a Design class in grad school and I just wasn't very comfortable with it all. I need rules because left to my own devices, things can get a little where are those bad design examples....oh yeah...somewhere destroyed forever (actually they are packed away in a box with other stuff from grad school). But I digress. So the point of this post is to show off some things that I have recently put together in a very simple and tasteful design manner. I am open to all tell me what you think. DP

P.S. Shout out to my girl, Karina, for finally publishing her own blog.
