Levoy Gala

Last Saturday night, I photographed a Valentine event called “In Love with the Levoy”, presented by a non-profit organization, Levoy Theater. The theater is approximately a hundred years old and is in Millville, NJ. The Levoy Theater organization is currently in process of rebuilding the theater. This Valentine dinner & dance event was one of Levoy’s fundraising events. For more information about Levoy Theater, go here. At beginning of the event, I made some portraits using two different backgrounds of the Levoy’s future building. Then, I went around to capture moments, which I enjoyed the most. The event was tons of fun to photograph, and it was great meeting new people!

Note: To all people who attended this event, all photos will be uploaded to an online gallery in less than two weeks. 🙂

Esther & Ron’s wedding

Esther Kenyon (now Marcotte) let me photograph her wedding reception while another photographer did the ceremony. I was honored to do this for her and her newly husband, Ron. Esther was a leader for my youth group when I was in high school and she was one of people who helped me grow in the Lord. The wedding reception was a cake and punch type, so there wasn’t much going on except people talking and eating snacks. So I attempted to capture moments while people were talking, being silly, or even having a moment together. Then in the end, Esther had a hilarious surprise for Ron. From what I heard, he tends to joke about being a senior citizen, so Esther decided to secretly rent a greyhound bus instead of a limo, to go to the hotel. I guess the greyhound bus is something related to being a senior citizen. When the reception ended, all of bridesmaids and groomsmen gathered at the front of church and went outside for a few seconds. Esther brought Ron outside, and surprised him. He was very amused by this silly inside joke. I was invited to go on the bus with them along with bridesmaids, groomsmen, families, etc. This was a new experience for me to photograph, and I’m glad I enjoyed working for Esther & Ron! 🙂
