A special message from Howie:
My beautiful wife and I are expecting our first child. Diana is due later this month and we couldn’t be more excited. We have not found out the gender of our baby and look forward to the surprise. We wanted to share some great photos that Jon (the other half of Dreamlite) took of us both in New York City. We hope you enjoy these photos and we’ll update you soon with more photos of the new baby! (HC)
We’re really excited to showcase our latest wedding set: Howie & Diana’s wedding!
As many of you may remember, Howie tied the knot back in early June. However, Jon wasn’t alone in the photographic adventures of the day. Diana’s brother + sister-in-law, Jason and Han-Meh, joined in on the photo coverage as well. Check out their set here.
The day went by so fast. From a photographer’s point of view, it was definitely a full day’s work. The bride’s side started around 7am, and we went through the usual preparation work– make-up, hair, surprise gift-opening, and calming of the nerves. As with any morning of the wedding day, there were also some unexpected moments of surprises (and tears). Howie’s gift to Diana was multi-faceted; on the outside, it was an Apple Ipad 3G. He placed a sweet note on the front of the screen that read, “Unlock Me! And There’s A Video! <3 Howie”. Saved on the Ipad was a really sentimental video message that Howie had made for Diana, recorded especially for the morning of.
Eventually, Jon traveled to the guy’s side to document their easy-going morning. Transformers 2 was blaring on the big-screen T.V., while the guys were eating their breakfast, ironing clothes, and getting ready at their own pace (sorry ladies, we guys have it really easy.) Diana’s gift to Howie was exceedingly awesome as well– it’s a one-of-a-kind Seiko watch that requires movement & motion to keep it charged.
One of my favorite photos? The black&white shot of Howie stealing a peek at his new bride whilst the entire sanctuary is in the middle of a prayer. Classic.
Enjoy our latest set, leave some comments, and if you like what you see, please spread the word about Dreamlite.

Hey everyone, Jon here. This was a particularly awesome engagement session that took place in New York City. In fact, we spent an entire day in NYC photographing great locations such as Central Park, D.U.M.B.O. and SoHo. What made the day even more enjoyable was having the chance to photograph two good friends– Howie (my other photographic-half/co-founder of Dreamlite Studios, LLC) and his fiancee Diana.
We visited the city during the peak of the fall foliage, so the leaves were as a-m-a-z-i-n-g as one could imagine. Although we encountered the usual crowds in NYC, the crowds all but seemed to ‘disappear’ at the most opportune photographic moments (see #8, #10, #11, #20). That’s right, no persons were photoshopped out of those photos!
