DIAZ DIGITAL DISCOVERIES – SEXY VOICE CONTEST WINNERS!

Hello Blog fans!

Our sexy voice contest was a great success! Thanks to all of the people who called in to enter.
I think it’s funny that all of the entrants were females.  Coincidence?  I’m not sure.  I had wondered during the contest if any men were going to enter, since it was anyones contest to win, and not a single male entry.  I guess that means that only women have sexy voices?  Huh!  🙂

Anyway…I had no idea when starting the contest how difficult it was going to be to choose!  All of the entrants were certainly eligible to win First Prize and the standings order had changed very quickly in just a matter of an hour each day during the week.

It was fun listening to all the callers who left their entry on our voice recorder…along with other information as well…but the only thing that counted for the contest were the specific rules, to keep everything fair.

Here is a recap of the rules and the prizes:

(previously posted)

We will judge from all of the sexy voices entered during both weeks and choose the top 3 to win, First prize, Second prize and Third prize. All entrants will be updated on the running via our Facebook fan page until the winner is announced on June 28th.

So with no further delay here are the winners!
 
3rd:  Maria Brown.  Anyone having the opportunity to hear Maria’s voice, will agree with me that she could read the phone book and make it sound like a fairytale novel!  When I first heard her voice, I took in a big sigh and thought she was already the winner.  Thank you Maria so very much! Maria wins a $50 Diaz Digital Discoveries Gift Card.
 
2nd:  Jayne Antos.  Jayne has the type of voice that would be great for those movies…you know…THOSE MOVIES!  The ones where there’s a female computer voice. (What were you thinking!?)  The computer voice is counting down the ship’s self-destruct sequence in a sexy tone.  The bad news is your about to die.  The good news is that the last thing you get to hear is a sexy female voice. 🙂  Jayne came very close to winning, as she called several times and had multiple entries and I am a huge fan of sci-fi and female computer voices!  LOL.  Thank you for entering Jayne!  Jayne wins a $100. Gift Card From us.
 
1st: Joanna Aviles.  Now Joanna…all I can say is… WOW!  Joanna’s voice has it all.  Soft-spoken, sweet, tender and just what we were looking for in our upcoming promotion.  I can’t wait to share what it is, but as it is still in the planning stages, we can’t divulge anything yet.  Just know that Joanna’s voice will be featured saying our tag line “Discover the beauty in your world.”  Thank you Joanna for entering, calling in faithfully and congratulations on winning our contest!  We will be contacting you soon to make arrangement for you to come to our studio.

Gina Mandella Dance Studio, Picture Day Photos 2010

We had the honor and pleasure to photograph the Gina Mandella Dance Studio Picture Day Event again this year.  We have enjoyed Picture Day for several years now and this year was no exception.

I must say, it’s wonderful to see all these kids growing up and developing their dance skills more and more each year.  I am also glad to be able to say that my own daughter is now a part of this wonderful dance studio.  I’m already looking forward to Picture Day 2012.

Wedding Vows – How to Write Your Own Wedding Vows

Hello Blog fans!
This week I have a really great article to share with you all on writing your own wedding vows.  It comes from an expert (wedding officiant – Glenn Feguson at Wedding Bahamas Style)

If you are thinking about writing your own vows, read the article below first for some great tips!

Wedding Vows – How to Write Your Own Wedding Vows

By Glenn Ferguson
 
As a wedding officiant, I help persons of different faiths and varied life experiences in personalizing the wedding ceremony that is right for their special day – and whether your choice is formal and traditional or contemporary and casual your wedding vows makes the day memorable not only for you but for your guest as well.

And while you get to choose from a variety of wedding vows incorporating your own traditions and preferences, more and more couples are opting to write their own vows.

So if that is your desire here are some tips for you on writing your own wedding vows.

The first bit of advice to you is that while you want your wedding vows to be meaningful you also want to be as concise as possible. By keeping your vows concise, you avoid overloading it with redundant and meaningless word which distracts from your intention and overwhelm your guest. A short ceremony is always better and I promise, you will get lots of complements from your guest.

Secondly, be sure to allow your wedding officiant or minister to review and edit your vows. It will certainly help with the quality and completeness of the vows.

Let your feeling show. Your wedding ceremony is the time to let your feeling show as you are declaring to the world your love for each other. So do not be afraid to express your feeling in your wedding vows. The good thing is that you can say anything that you want to say, that is fitting for your relationship and wedding ceremony as long as you both agree to be married somewhere in the wedding vows.

Review what others have done. We all need some inspiration so feel free to look at what other couples have done and you will be surprised by how closely your feeling relates to others. You can also get lots of insights from wedding poems and songs.

Finally, while you can chose to write your wedding vows together or apart. I recommend that you do it together as it will give you an added opportunity to bond, so get together. And be sure to have plenty of facial napkins as I promise you, there will be lots of emotions!

Wedding Photography, Takes or Outtakes?

Was it something I said?  You better believe it was!

One of my favorite parts of photographing a wedding is making the images of the bride and groom alone.  I like getting the bride and groom some alone time after the ceremony and before the reception so they can relax a bit, calm their nerves and enjoy each other’s company, before it’s time to get going to the reception.  While, I love a good party as much as anyone else, the more time I have with the couple alone, the more great images I can create.

I love to interact with the couple during these formal photos and create some real time images that show the emotion and the fun they are both having.  Since the wedding day goes by so fast, my goal is to make images that will remind them of how much fun they had that day, every time they look at the images, again and again.

We create a mixture of images with all the different feelings of the day.  For instance…  This image series from a recent wedding has something for everyone.  Which one of these three images is the Outtake?  That depends on who you are.  Everyone has a different favorite and we are able to photograph your wedding the way you want to remember it.

If you are a ROMANTIC and want to show that in your images, then you may like this one:

If you are HAPPY-GO-LUCKY and you want your images to reflect that, then this one may be for you:

If you are all about having FUN and LAUGHING and that is how you want to remember it, then you may like this one:

Or, if you are like me, you love them all!  

So which one is the outtake?  For me, none of them.  You pick your own favorite.

No matter what you want your photographs to reflect about your wedding day, you can count on us!  We can do it all as you can see from these images.  Now, go tell your friends!!!

If you know someone who’s getting married and would love a wide range of images that show who they are, capture the essence of their day and show how much they enjoyed their wedding celebration, ask them to contact us. www.DiazDD.com

We love to photograph weddings…and it shows!

“Discover the beauty in your world.”
