Best Bride’s Reactions

So we put together great Bride’s reactions photos… In order to get them, we were focused on what was going on, with our fingers pressing halfway onto our shooters to click when “the moment” came…

"Al Ojeda Photography - New Jersey Wedding Photographers - New Jersey wedding photos"

Brides and Grooms: the “Yay”, the “High Five” moments are celebratory gestures that happen in few seconds, if the photographer is not on top of the game, they wouldn’t get captured… As you can see, at Al Ojeda Photography, we are silently waiting for any of these reactions to occur…

Trust your memories to Professionals…

We used a lot of B&W and sepia photos, which is a great option when shooting in a photojournalistic style… Colors can distract from the action…

Bridal Bouquets and Photography – Perfect Together!

Excited to present today’s guest appearance, Georgianne from Monday Flowers:

Bridal Bouquets and Photography – Perfect Together!

Brides often tell me, “I want my flowers to look nice but they are only for the day” and that is true. Like everything on your wedding day, the flowers stay fresh only for that single day. When you think about it, don’t they bring much more to the event than that?   Let’s face it your bridal bouquet will be immortalized in your photos forever!
When I consult with brides I encourage them to bring inspiration photos showing bouquets and flowers they adore. Unlike words, these photos really give me a quick insight into their “floral” tastes. Many bring pictures of wedding bouquets that are taken up close. These are my favorites because I see exactly what flowers, color and texture they love.

"Al Ojeda Photography - New Jersey Wedding Photographers - The Palace at Somerset Park wedding photos"How will your guests view you and your bouquet? Mostly they will see you from a distance. That is why I talk about what your bouquet will look like to your guests. Although you might not like certain flowers, they might be just the thing to give you that little bit of soft texture between blooms.

"Al Ojeda Photography - New Jersey Wedding Photographers - The Palace at Somerset Park wedding photos"

You might be afraid to include greenery or color but without them the bouquet might just blend in with your dress and disappear.  Is there enough texture to see each flower or does it seems like one large bloom?  Although I’m a believer in your bouquet being an accent to your gown, I also believe it should get noticed.

"Al Ojeda Photography - New Jersey Wedding Photographers - The Palace wedding photos"These principles of design, color and texture apply to professional photography too. Many photos will be taken at a distance, especially the group shots.  Not every photo of your bouquet a close up. Many will be taken outside, perhaps in bright sunlight.   A photo taken up close of pale pink roses will really show the rich pink tone. Transform your location outside in bright sunlight and your bouquet will certainly appear lighter, if not simply white.
Here are a few things to remember when you are choosing your flowers and colors for your wedding bouquet.
•    Most of the photos of your bouquet will be at a distance.  It’s just as important that you love the look of your bouquet from far away as you do close up.
•    Don’t be afraid of color. If your wedding is taking place during the time of year when you will most likely take photos outside, adding slightly richer tones will help that color show better.
•    Don’t be afraid to add greenery for softness or to help define the bouquet. Most flowers grow on plants that have foliage so adding light touches will help the bouquet look natural and also define the edges of your bouquet against your dress.
•    Don’t be afraid to speak to your photographer about your wedding bouquet. If getting lots of great photos of you with your bouquet is priority let them know. Giving them a heads up on what your bouquet will look like will give them time to think about how best to present you with your bouquet.
•    Last but not least, keep an open mind when choosing your flowers.  Flowers are grown by nature and the beauty of nature is that it’s ever changing and no two are ever the same. Don’t look for your flowers to be perfect, look for them to be beautiful!

PIPA | Where are we going to?

Where are we going to? Please read:

Thanks to action by a broad and bipartisan coalition of Internet users, companies, and organizations, the U.S. House of Representatives has now put the brakes on SOPA, a well-intentioned but deeply flawed bill that would use Internet censorship to combat overseas copyright infringement. Even President Obama’s White House has joined the opposition.

But nevertheless, the Senate is continuing to move forward — and fast — with its equally dangerous version of the bill, called PIPA, the Protect-IP Act. As written, PIPA would import censorship and surveillance techniques pioneered by countries like China and Iran, reversing longstanding U.S. policy on Internet freedom, betraying U.S. First Amendment values, damaging our standing around the world, threatening our job-creating innovators, and undermining Internet security for everyone.

Today is a day for action across the Internet. Learn about these destructive bills. Tell your Senator what you think. Congress needs to hear from you.

Photoshop Back in the Day

Al Ojeda, my hubby, has been doing photography professionally for many years, way before we came to US. Once he had this catalog photo-shoot for a boutique… I took one of the pics, scanned it (there were no digital cameras at that time), and started playing with it… Here is the result…

Back in the day, sometime in 1998, Adobe Photoshop was very basic without the wonderful tools/features it has today, but I did managed to do something pretty creative… Just sharing my love to arts…

Have fun doing what you like!
