Launch Party Fun & Winner!!

Yesterday was incredibly special. I knew launch day would be something to celebrate but I was not prepared for all the love and support showered on us. I want to share a huge and heartfelt thank you for all the texts, messages and love you shared with us, it means the world to not only me but our family as well. 

We ended the day on a high note -- our virtual launch party!! To be honest I was a little afraid no one would show up. But Dave and I popped a bottle of bubbly, opened our computers and hoped for the best. Boy, was I wrong to even worry!! Not only did our friends, family and clients come out to celebrate but everyone was so excited and shared some amazing comments!! 

We gave away some great prizes (ex: gift card to Magnolia Market -- what what!!) including our grand prize : An Anniversary Session!! Our mission at Deborah Zoe Photography is to create images that will serve as your family's history, honoring what was and celebrating what is to come. We believe that marriage is worth celebrating -- no matter how long you've been married. We also believe that photography is a powerful tool that helps us honor and remember the beautiful moments of life. And so it only seemed right to give away a session that celebrates the beauty of marriage!! 

Drum roll please.... 

The winner of our Grand Prize Anniversary Session is : EMMA CODY!! Emma send me an email to get set up!! Congratulations!!

Anniversary Session at Glen Magna Farms

Thank you again to everyone who celebrated along with us yesterday!! It feels like to a dream to have this project that we (my designer, my husband, my brainstorming group) poured our hearts into finally out there in the world. I'm excited to see where 2016 takes us and so thankful to have a place that feels like home to share with you. Happy Friday!!

Well, Hello There

It's been a while hasn't it? I didn't intentionally take a break from bloggin, it just kind of happened. My 2014 self would be going crazy knowing that I wasn't blogging my expected three posts weekly. Heck my 2010 self would be irrate I wasn't blogging 5 days a week. I began blogging way back before my business was even a business in 2009. I wanted an outlet to share my work and the journey I was on to become a full fledge full time wedding photographer. Many of you have been on that journey with me since the beginning (raise your hand!!)

Inspire Photo Retreat 2016

Every year I've made a commitment to myself and my business to attend at least one conference or retreat as a way to grow in my craft and knowledge as photographer & business owner. My first ever confernce was WPPI, an eye opening experience in the heart of Las Vegas. WPPI is huge (literally), with thousands of photographers, speakers and sponsers attending every year. It's a great way to get your feet wet so to speak in the photography world and I've met some of my dearest industry friends in Vegas. But being the introverted type that I am, these huge group settings made me feel so uncomfortable and longing for a small, intimate community to connect with. With that in mind the Inspire Photo Retreats was created.

Signature Wedding Album

Remember these two? They celebrated their wedding day on a HOOOOT August afternoon surrounded by their friends, family and...penguins. Yes, you read that right : PENGUINS. Kate & Jeff held their wedding reception at the Boston Aquarium (you can see more of their wedding here), right on the waterfront with epic views of the harbor and city skyline and penguins galore. Kate loves penguins so you can imagine her joy posing for pictures during cocktail hour amongst the flightless birds (who by the way were dresses for the occassion in their black tie best ;)).

North Shore Family Portraits

There are many things that I love about our home, one of them being the amount of natural light our house receives throughout the day. Sitting up on a hill with very few trees, our house receives sunlight all day long. It's as glorious as it sounds, bright and cheery! It also means that it's the perfect location for photography. The big windows and the natural light means that most rooms provide adequate and even light, perfect for shooting conditions.

The Best of Portraits 2015

Oh what a year it as been! At the beginning of 2015 I set a goal to focus more on portraits in addition to weddings. When I first started DZP I only photographed weddings & engagements. I wanted nothing to do with portraits. But over the years my heart has made quite the change and I love incoporating portrait work into the cadence of my wedding season. The thing I love MOST about shooting portraits is the opportunity it allows me to walk alongside couples long after the wedding day. The majority of my portrait work is filled with past clients, celebrating an annivesrary or expanding their family. It gives me the unique perspective to witness as this couple grows together and enters into new phases of life. To be able to capture those moments, big or small, and encapsulate them forever for a couple or family is an absolute joy.
