I know you see a lot of dancers and theater portraits from me – it’s what I specialize in. But I also enjoy other types of portrait photography including senior portraits! Anthony came to me from a friend of his who’s a dancer so that counts!

Anthony was a pleasure to work with and a very polite young man

Sound of Music Publicity Photography

New Jersey Theatre Photographer

SKIT’s “Sound of Music”

I created some publicity portraits for Showkids Invitational Theater’s show “Sound of Music.”

Theater like many of the Arts, was deeply impacted in the past 18 months by COVID-19. As you can see in the photograph above, some members of the cast who were too young to be vaccinated wore masks at times.

The above photographs were used to promote the show to local media outlets. The show was scheduled to take place on an outdoor stage at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Lebanon, NJ. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate the first weekend. Fortunately someone in the cast had a connection with the South Ridge Community Church in Clinton. They are blessed with a large indoor gathering place. The opening weekend shows where held there.

The above photographs are some of the seniors who, for them, was their last SKIT show!

Look for an upcoming posting of actual show photographs.

Are you involved with a theater that can use some good photography? I specialize in dance and theatrical photography. I’m also the official photographer for the Freddy Awards at the State Theatre in Easton, PA. I can offer:

  • head shots for actors
  • rehearsal photographs
  • show photographs
  • publicity photographs
  • video recording of production

Please reach out to me at dave@dabourphoto.com or 908.995.7273 to see how I can help your theater!

Macher Wedding Photography

New Jersey Wedding Photographer

Wedding day portraits for Greg and Cat

Cat and Greg’s wedding was delayed due to COVID-19 like so many others in the past 18 months.

Cat and Greg were a pleasure to work with. I also had the pleasure to create engagement portraits for them. Their sense of humor and adventure are priceless!

The church was important to Cat as her Mother also got married there.

I created a special image for them (left) that was very similar to what was done for her parents.

Their reception was at Hawk Pointe Golf Club in Washington New Jersey. I’ve photographed weddings and events there before. The location is ideal and the staff very friendly!

Wedding day portraits for Greg and Cat

Unfortunately Cat’s father came down with COVID-19 right before her wedding and could not attend in person. He’s now fully recovered and doing well! Cat and Greg put their wedding attire back on recently and we had another portrait session with her Dad! Look for an upcoming posting featuring those photos!

Dance Portraits for Larkin

Dance Portrait Photography

I only had a brief time to create some dance portraits for Larkin but it was worth it. I had an image in my mind of her standing near a window and she did wonderful!

Her friendly demeaner and striking blue eye resulted in working with her being a pleasure
