Lisa and Shamel were a great couple to work with. Last night we were able to meet with them and present them with thier slideshow and final images from their wedding in February. This image was taken at the main lobby in the Ramada Inn. Lisa’s dress had a classic look and I wanted to create an image to reflect the style of their clothing. I use my trusty Sunpak 120J bare bulb to achieve the lens flare and cinematic effect.
I had the honor to document Lisa and Shamels wedding on January 12 at the Ramada Inn in Allentown Pa. This winter has being unusually warm and we had hoped to create some great outdoor wedding images at Illicks Mills Park in Bethlehem before the ceremony. The weather would have nothing to do with this and we went back into winter mode on Sunday. Mary and I had a great time documenting their wedding day at the Ramada. Last year Shamel played for the Lehigh Valley Storm football team in Allentown. I am looking forward to another year photographing the Storm football team and Shamel.
Congratulations Lisa and Shamel!!!
Engagement Photography is taking off !!!! The most unique way to propose . The super secret to be revealed in April.
I have been working with the designers at Kart and Jute this past week and I received my new DVD covers on Saturday. The covers arrived USPS in my mail box and arrived in great condition. The packaging for the covers are simple and complimented the eco-friendly DVD covers. I found my logo was placed exactly where the designer at Kart and Jute said it would be. The colors on the log were even better than I anticipated. The stitching on the covers was professional and top notch. My original order was for six and I am sure I will be ordering more for weddings in the future. The style of the Kraft and Jute covers do a great job complimenting my custom thumb drives.
Kraft and Jute is a company based out of a small college town in western Pennsylvania. They have created a personalized-simple-eco friendly and unique DVD sleeve for photographers. The company is very green !!! They use recycled craft paper to make the hand stitched DVD covers.
If you like the idea of using a green product, you can purchase wedding invitations and thank you notes directly from Kraft and Jute.

We have been working on our presentation for our Digital Negative DVD’s for Brides and Grooms. I was not happy delivering digital negatives on slim DVD’s. I tried the canvas DVD covers from Nations Photo lab and it was a better alternative. The shipping cost and the added time for the delivery of the final product was not an acceptable alternative.
I was able to locate a small company in western Pennsylvania. They have created an eco friendly packing solution for digital negatives made from 100% recycled material. They have truly created a digital negative storage solution that is inspiring.
