What is a moment?

I stumbled across this video on youtube.  Initially I thought it was for photographers, but clearly it’s about life.  Usually I never pass along stuff like this, but this is pretty darn good.  Thought I would share 🙂  (make sure to turn your speaker volume up)

Rena - I’m surprised there are no comments here yet! This is beautiful, a very touching & emotional summary of precious moments of life which we too often let slip through our fingers and never notice or savor. Life is a precious and perfect gift from God!
Thank you so much for sharing this.

Photos of the Day!

Just wanted to post a schmorgasbored of images from this summer and falls weddings. We haven’t been posting that much. The blog has taken a back seat to working on 2009 albums, delivering photos, our slammin holiday season – oh and of course I’m 9 months pregnant and READY TO POP! Enjoy this medley of photos showcasing some tender moments, awesome sillhouettes in doorways and windows, and some reception fun.

First up, two photos from Ali and Eric’s wedding at St. Pauls R.C.C in Ramsey, NJ.

Ali’s father-daughter dance at the Rockleigh Country Club.
A different Ali absolutely delighted that her wedding day at Ramsey Country Club has finally arrived!

Shenanigans on the dance floor at Ramsey Country Club.

A beautiful detail photo of Julie from her nuptials to Christian at the Ridgewood Country Club.
Julie and Christian stopped for a fantastic silhouette in the doorway of the Old Paramus Reformed Church in Ridgewood, NJ – shot by Eric.
Julie and Christian being awfully romantic at the Ridgewood Country Club.

Christian and his mom during the mother-son dance.


This shot is from Julie and Victor’s wedding at the Westbury Manor. I wasn’t even at this wedding but when I was editing the photos I cried when I saw these. I was just so touched by how the siblings stood up to support their brother during an emotional speech.

Here is Victor getting dolled up by the ladies. You may remember Victor and Julie from their engagement session in Central Park.

Here are Kristy and her father – waiting for their turn to go down the aisle at the Castle on the Hudson in Tarrytown, NY

Eric took this photo of Michelle getting ready to leave for her ceremony and reception at Bridgewaters in NYC. I think the light is just beautiful, the pattern, the composition. Great job Eric!

A lovely silhouette from a wedding at the Pleasantdale Chateau.
Another image from the Pleasantdale Chateau – a beautiful scene setter shot by Eric.

And finally a fun reception shot from the Mallard Island Yacht Club.

Thanks for taking a peak. We hope you enjoy todays medley of images.

Sincerely,
