January 14, 2013 :Thanks to all of the brides that stopped by and visited my booth at the Bridal Market (Nacogdoches) and Bridal Fair (Lufkin) this past weekend.

September 2011: Cool Trends
Brides are setting their wedding dates during cooler months. Over the past several years I have noticed a trend away from summer weddings. More and more brides are getting married in October and November than ever before. The trend is understandable with the record heat experienced in the summer of 2011.
October 2010: EAST Magazine
Stephanie Oliver of EAST and The Journey magazines contacted me this summer about writing an article and publishing some of my images taken on the John Muir Trail in Northern California. I was honored at the request and thrilled to have eight of my pictures published in the October / November issue. I collaborated on the article with a friend I met on the trail, Lukas Truckenbrod. If you are interested in seeing pictures from the trip please visit this site where I have put together a web gallery of some of the best photographs.

January 2010: The Main Event features Dupre' Photography
When the fine folks at The Main Event needed images to promote their wedding and reception venues they came to Dupre' Photography. I was happy to provide photographs for their website to show event images from both Behannon's and The Lodge.
December 2009: Record Year for Dupre' Photography
2009 has been my busiest year ever. I ended the year with 24 weddings. It was wonderful to be a part of so many "joining of hands" and capture memories and emotions as they unfolded. The challenge for me was to keep it fresh for each wedding. I focused on making every wedding unique and responded to the personalities of the bride and groom and the environment they created. I feel very blessed for this successful year and have decided to maintain my current pricing for 2010. Thanks to all the beautiful brides that chose Dupre' Photography.
Oct. / Nov. 2009; Cover Photo of Charm Magazine
The great folks at Charm magazine asked to use several of my wedding pictures in their Oct. / Nov., 2009 issue. I was honored to have a portrait of Penny Ippolito featured on the cover. The issue also included my images in the "It's All About the Dress," "Floral Chic," and "With This Ring" articles. I worked directly with Denise Hoepfner and Sharon Henderson to meet their photography requirements. The magazine was well received and widely distributed. It was fun for me to see a copy on the news stand in Starbucks.
Fall 2009; Adobe Releases Lightroom 3.0 Beta
I always get excited about a new release of Adobe PhotoShop Lightroom. I have used Lightroom from the very beginning when it was first introduced by Adobe in beta version back in 2006. I have been a huge fan every since. Lightroom is the main software I use for photo editing and for cataloging thousands of pictures each year. Although I use PhotoShop CS4 for advanced enhancements, Lightroom is where I do most of my editing.
