Fall Engagement

Yeah, yeah, yeah.  I know, these images are from the fall.  As in like 7 months ago!  Its been awhile since I actually blogged my portraits sessions.  I have been so busy behind the scenes, that this neglected.  But now with the new brand and look revealed, I get to go back to showing some wonderful images!  

I need to show this wonderful engagement session first, since I just photographed their amazing wedding this weekend.  Kimmy and Brett wanted to be photographed on Princeton’s campus, since there is where Brett when to school and played football.  It was my first time on Princeton’s campus and let me tell you, its a photographer’s dream location!  So beautiful.  Here are a few of my favorite images from their portrait session, before I show you some of their wedding photographs!

Blog Party – Day 3

For today’s blog party celebration prize, I’m also going to show a new product that is now available.  I adore these handcrafted unique frames.  The come in a whole bunch of different shapes and colors.  You are able to create a completely custom frame for your home.  They are perfect in nurseries and kids rooms, with lots of bright fun colors.  But because of the darker, more adult colors, they will also look great in family room and other spaces through your house.  Today’s give away is an 8×10 frame in the shape and color of your choice.  Leave me a comment telling me what you think of the new product or what your favorite frame and color is or where you would hang one of these frames.  Just like the previous contests this week, you can also leave a comment on Facebook for an additional chance to win!!  Winner will be picked at random and announced on Friday!  Good Luck!!!

I love these frames!I think a favorite style is the mary anne, i love all the curves! I would hang it in my dining room :)

alison Schüler - June 20, 2012 - 7:46 pm

I too love these new, fresh frames! So cute! I have been traveling a lot lately and when i am away, my daughter has been taking one of our family photos us to her room to look at when going to bed. It touches my heart. I would use one of these and put a family photo in her room. Her room is light purple, so either the ivory/white or a purple/pink colored frame. I like the white frame you have shown above!

Jocelyn - June 21, 2012 - 8:15 am

Dan, this frame is adorable! I would love to hang it in my new baby’s room. Color to be determined after arrival:)
Sorry I commented late …. We r in Disney:)

Kim Hager - June 21, 2012 - 8:27 am

Did you make the white one look rustic or can you get the frames like that? I love that touch!

dmcelhaugh - June 21, 2012 - 10:29 am

Kim – All the frames come like that…with the exposed wood, regardless of color. So cute, right?

Danielle Rech - June 21, 2012 - 10:47 am

OMG those frames are so adorable I love the coordinating lt blue and muted pinky red…very lovely. Hey DM Photos did you know we share the same B-day??? 6/20 is mine except I’m much older than 5 ;)
