Nadia's maternity session

We shot Nadia and Phil's wedding back in May of last year so were absolutely thrilled that they asked us to do a maternity session for them. After a few months of Baby Lombardo doing a bit more baking in the oven we finally decided to go forward with the shoot. We met at the Sheraton Crossroads in Mahwah, NJ. Audrey and I decided to make a mini vacation of it and got a nice junior suite. More details about our mini vacation in another blog entry... stay tuned! In the mean time here are some images that we captured that day. Nadia and Phil, you two are going to be amazing parents! We love you guys!

Wedding Wire Brides Choice Award!

OK OK OK OK OK OK OK OK... Stay calm! We won an award!!!! OMG WOW. I am soo stoked about this!




2009 Bride's Choice Awards presented by WeddingWire | Wedding Cakes, Wedding Venues, Wedding Photographers & More

Here's the official press release!


WeddingWire, the nation’s leading wedding technology company, just announced that J. Castro Photography has won the 2009 Bride’s Choice Awards™!

In its inaugural year, the Bride’s Choice Awards recognizes and honors vendors from the WeddingWire Network that demonstrate excellent quality of service, responsiveness, professionalism, value of cost and flexibility. This year’s recipients represent the top three percent of WeddingWire’s vendor community, which includes over 100,000 wedding vendors from across the US. That means J. Castro Photography is one of the very best Wedding Photographers.

Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the company, the Bride’s Choice Awards are determined exclusively by recent newlyweds through surveys and reviews.

“We are excited to launch this annual award program to honor high-performing vendors based solely on the experiences of our WeddingWire community,” according to Timothy Chi, WeddingWire’s Chief Executive Officer. “This year’s recipients have set the bar high, exhibiting excellent service and expertise in the wedding industry.”

J. Castro Photography would like to thank our past clients for speaking on our behalf and helping us win the 2009 Bride’s Choice Award!

To all our brides, past and present, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for this!  You are all the most awesome clients any photographer can ask for.  Hold on because 2009 is gonna rock!  Thanks again!

Much love and aloha!

Jaymie, Audrey, Addison, Izzac, and Ben

And the winner is!

Hey Everyone!


Sorry for the delay in making the announcement to the winner of our drawing.  We wanted to record it on video and have it be our first attempt at a video blog entry.  Sadly, we just couldn't pull it off without it looking rather amateurish.  We are photographers not videographers! =)

Anyhow, how we determined the winner was totally random.  Every couple had their names written down on a piece of paper and thrown in a hat (seriously).  

So... finally... the winners of our 2009 wedding package giveaway is...
