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.
Reena: As always you captured the love and happiness of this beautiful couple.
The church brought back fond memories, it was where I graduated and Uncle Bert was in attendance. Now it is time to set the camera for Renzo.
Their wedding was perfect with attention to every detail, what I would call simply elegant with family and friends.
