Welcome and thank you for visiting my blog!
I like being able to tell a story through an image. That's why I am a photojournalist. And I love what I do. I hope that viewing the photos on my blog and on my website, you can see that, too.
A little about me:
I am a newspaper and wedding photojournalist based in New Jersey, USA.
I currently work as the chief photographer and photo editor of the Jersey Journal, a daily newspaper in Jersey City covering the county of Hudson.
A graduate of the Eddie Adams Photography Workshop in 2002, I have received awards from the New Jersey Press Association (NJPA), the New Jersey Press Photographers Association (NJPPA) and National Press Photographers Association (NPPA).
My work has appeared in the Star-Ledger and the New York Times, among others.
I was born in San Fernando, La Union, Philippines, and grew up in Baguio City, Philippines. I immigrated to the United States in 1997.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan.
I live with my husband, photographer Max Pasion, our son, Renzo, and our cat, Nom Nom, in Bayonne, NJ.
I am available for freelance work and to photograph weddings and other events. Contact me now to book your event. Please visit my website, www.reenarose.com, to see more of my work.
I think it’s terrible that Jersey City students from Hudson County community college did not have their graduation in Jersey City! Why go all the way to out of town for the ceremony???
