New Blog

Well ladies and gentlemen...I think it's about time that I moved on to bigger and better things. Not that my time with blogspot wasn't fabulous, it was! But along with redoing my WEBSITE I thought I should spruce up the blog as well. So, my blog as moved to www.vanessajoyphotographyblog.com (and soon to make things easier by having www.vanessajoyblog.com forward to the new address as well). It's a sad moment as I've really gotten used to some of blogger's amazing features which I have on my sidebar there, and it's going to be a learning curve moving on to a non-sidebar blog, but, I think there are good things in store.

I have 53 subscribers to this blog and have had over 58,000 hits, and I hope all of you and more will come join me at my new one!

See you there!!!

WEDDING Sites and Services Magazine {Published}

I'm so excited to share that my work has been published in January 2011's issue of WEDDING Sites and Services Magazine!! Diane and Steve's wedding from April 2010 is being featured and I couldn't be more ecstatic! I captured one of my favorites photos of the year at their wedding, and ironically the magazine didn't choose that one! Oh well. I'm going to post it here anyway cuz I just like it so much!!

Joanna and Michael {Album}!!

You may remember Joanna and Michael from their gorgeous beach wedding at McLoone's Pier House in Long Branch. Well just a few short months later, their album is ready!

I love this one. It's a beautiful metal cover that has their picture printed right on it, and the design my Dani is just impeccable! It's so much fun to see the final product!! Ok, ok, you can see it too!

An Interview With Animoto

For the past year Rob and I have been speaking at various conventions teaching other photographers how to shoot, edit and incorporate photo/video fusion into their workflow. We've been fortunate enough to speak with some of the best photographers around like Doug Gordon, Clay Blackmore and Robert Isaacson and we have upcoming workshops in February and April for Maryland's PPA State Convention and NJPPA's Mini workshops.

We've also been working with Animoto over the past year writing blog articles for them explaining some of the fusion elements of equipment, shooting and editing, and this past month we were delighted to be interviewed by them for their first ever video blog post! Check it out below!

2010 {A Year in Review}

2010 was a very defining year for me as a photographer. My business and I grew exponentially and for that I am so grateful. I was able to work with a tremendous group of photographers both as a second shooter and having them shoot for me. I celebrated my one year anniversary with my hubby. My 40 brides and grooms for this year were nothing short of a joy to work with and really made this year as wonderful as it was. And the shoes...oh my goodness what fun I've had with shoes this year!

Well, just for fun I made two collages of this year. I had do do a second one to just highlight the details, because I've had such amazing details this year!

Thanks so all of you who have made 2010 an incredible year. Here's to 2011!!!

Update 12/31/2010: I would be remiss if I didn't post the engagement sessions of this year too!
