TAGGED!

August 31st, 2007 by dMdC Photography

Nope, I didn’t get another expensive Swiss watch….I got tagged 3 times!  This is how it works, wedding photographers have been tagging one another and you have to post 8 things about yourself that people wouldn’t know.  Then you have to tag 8 other photographers.  So here is a big “GEE, THANKS” to 3 of the best photographers out there that were kind enough to tag me…. Danny Weiss, Jason Domingues and Paul & Mecheal Johnson.

Ok….8 things about me:

1.  I am named after the movie “Desiree”.  It is about Napoleon’s sweetheart and it starred Marlon Brando.

2.  I am obsessed with baseball, although if you read my blog…you probably already know that.

3.  I am addicted to mashed potatoes.  Keep the chocolate and give me the spuds.

4.  My first job was working the McDonald’s drive thru.  At 15, I was sporting a visor, bow tie and some braces…..I was WICKED hot!

5.  I use to be an aspiring actress.  If you watch episodes of Sex and the City and the Sopranos you can probably see me in a corner pretending to eat pasta.

6.  I have a fake nose.  I busted it badly playing soccer freshman year in high school and I had to get it fixed.  I use to have a big hook nose. 🙂

7.  I snore like a freight train.  At least thats what my cat tells me.

8.  When I was 7, my next door neighbor and I burned his house down to the ground by accident.  They had to live in a trailor for a year.  Hey…I was 7!

And now for the 8 photographers I’m tagging:

Shooting with friends!

August 26th, 2007 by dMdC Photography

I just love the fact that I am friends with some of the most brilliant photographers this side of the Mississippi. Sometimes I’m lucky enough to tag along with them on their gigs and sometimes they come and hang with me.  Well this Sunday I had the great pleasure of working with a dear friend and photography supa-star Danny Weiss.  We had such a good time, even though we were sweating like mad people, we managed to bang out some stellar pics.  See Danny, things aren’t so bad on the other side of the GW Bridge!

MR. MET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

August 19th, 2007 by dMdC Photography

I swear it was like seeing Santa Claus for the first time.  My good friend and kickin’ wedding photographer, Josh Lynn, asked me to come 2nd shoot with him…..he knew I would want to be at this wedding at the Knoll Country Club.  You see, the bride had a little surprise up her sleeve for her brand spankin new husband who is a die hard Mets fan (not as big of a fan as me, cuz as we all know….I’m slightly out of control when it comes to the Mets).  She hired Mr. Met to come to the reception and you know that I had to have a pic or two with my man.  Who knew that you could actually rent out Mr. Met?  I’m thinking of hiring him to come watch a game with me.  Figure he’s a cheap date, ya can’t drink through a baseball head.  Who wants in?

Robyn & Paul

August 12th, 2007 by dMdC Photography

Today I had the honor of photographing Robyn and Paul’s church ceremony.  See, their big shin-dig isn’t till next week but the small ceremony was done today so they get to celebrate twice.  After church, we got to go and play at Lambert Castle where I had the two of them all to myself for some a-ma-z-in portraits.  It was so unbelievable hot and humid but I did not see a drop of sweat from either of these two and they were happy as could be taking pics.  What more could a photographer ask for?  Ummm, some air conditioning and a cold soda…sooooo off to the Brownstone we went!  Guys, have an amazing time next Saturday and party like rockstars!

Jenny & Dimitri

August 4th, 2007 by dMdC Photography

I knew this wedding was going to be a freakin blast even before it happened.  I’ve know Jenny since I was a teenager and one thing I know is that her and her sisters know how to have fun (her brother too but he always stirs up trouble!).  To say that Jenny met her match in Dimitri is an understatement, these two are always smiling and having fun……you better take good care of her Dimitri or I’ll have Debbie come and kick your butt. 🙂  Love ya guys!

Roxanne

August 4th, 2007 by dMdC Photography

This morning I went to visit Roxanne so she could have her portrait taken and truth be told she does have a bit of vanity in her cuz she had no problems hanging out and posing for the camera.  She hasn’t been feeling to great lately so I sending out some really good vibes so that she will hurry up and get better real soon!
