    Tanina and Nicholas

    Sometimes you meet a couple who are as much in love and they are in like and you just know those couples are going to be together forever. That’s the case with Tanina and Nick.

    This fun-loving, beautiful couple married this month at The Estate on Halifax in Port Orange, FL. (and oh my god, that place is pretty!)

    Nic and Tanina Slideshow-264the Estates on the Halifax Nic and Tanina Slideshow-266Ceremony was in this cute little chapel on property.

    Their fun and playful attitude rubbed off on EVERYONE! There wasn’t a guest in attendance who wasn’t smiling and laughing.

    I just know they are going to not only have a wonderful life together but a joyful one.

    Starting with your Gallery in mind

    Spend any time online these days and you can see just how much we value photography in our lives. From the candid moments on Facebook to the artistry on Instagram, most people are pretty comfortable wielding a photo app or filter to try to create interesting images.

    In fact, chances are good that you know someone who aspires to sell their services as a photographer. Ask for a referral for a photographer on Facebook and chances are good you’ll get plenty. Everyone has a sister/uncle/neighbor who is a photographer – some even advertise photo sessions that are dirt cheap! And while that may sound enticing, cheap doesn’t always result in quality.

    True portrait photography is rarely achieved by the casual hobbyist – which is not a testament to talent, but, rather, to resources and effort. Your aunt Sylvia may have a very nice camera, but if she has not invested the time and money in learning about how that camera works – as well as the best lighting, background, or poses – she will never be able to create the aesthetic you want. That’s where I come in!

    So Why PhotosbyDallen?

    A professional photo session is not just an investment, it’s a commitment – one that I’ve made to this craft over the last 20 years, developing my skills and style so I can deliver the quality you expect. It’s also a commitment that I make to you, promising to share my expertise with you each step of the way, ensuring that we create beautiful, one-of-a-kind art for you to showcase in your home.

    I understand that it’s a commitment you make as well – particularly with the time you and your loved ones commit to the process. As someone who is passionate about preserving memories and capturing moments, I am all too aware of how precious and fleeting that time is.

    Getting everyone scheduled, dressed, out to the perfect location to serve as your backdrop – then having to sort through the resulting images, upload, touch up – that’s a lot of effort for DIY portraits and a lot of risk to take with a novice photographer!

    Even if you manage to find a few gems in the resulting images, printing can be a gamble, too. Drug stores and home or online printers vary in quality, contrast, and color. This is the reason most photos end up forgotten on a CD or flash drive in the back of a desk drawer – and this is everything I will help you avoid!

    Starting with a wall gallery/display in mind.

    We offer 5 types of products, which ensures that you get exactly what you want:

    Classic and beautiful Gallery Canvas Wraps: printed on a fine art canvas, covered with a laminate finish and stretched over wood framing:

    The more contemporary Mounted Standouts: High-quality photographic print, mounted on a lightweight foam core with your choice of edge:

    Framed prints: A traditional display option,  frames are black or white and include a variety of matting options.

    Gift prints: Surprise and delight your loved ones with a print that they will treasure forever.

    Finished printed press photo albums: A polished and professional book of your memories that will last a lifetime.

    All our prints and products are ordered through my professional photographic and press printing partner – meaning the images you fall in love with and select will be the same images you receive. The high-quality materials and inks will make sure that your art lasts a lifetime (or longer) and that you are able to share your portraits with future generations.

    I look forward to sharing our options to turn your memories into art!
