    Hi Reena, I’m Keats the photographer for the Philippine Daily Inquirer. We’ve met at the Raritan Photographic Society a while back when you were the judge to our year-end competition. I bumped into you at the Liberty National GC in Bayonne about 3 years ago for the Barclays Golf Tournamento.

    I was wondering if you could lead me to the location of the statue of liberty shot you did last 9/11 in Bayonne. How do I get there? Is it accessible by light rail or do I need a car? Any information you can provide will be appreciated.

    Best regards,


Three years ago, Melissa hired me to take family photos with their new baby boy, Gabriel. Now, her brood has grown with the addition of adorable five-month-old Baby Anna. Being eight months pregnant with my first baby myself, I was more than happy to take photos of her family again. Older brother Gabriel was adamant […]

    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.

    Love Ate MarieReplyCancel

    I am the editor of Un-Jersey Bride blog and would love to feature this wedding, have not been finding many the Saddle Rive rinn and since we feature unique venues this would be perfect, we are non exclusive so its ok if it has been featured some where else, we tend to like to find out following from couples besides vendors
    1) How they felt when they saw each other
    2) What was best part of the day
    3) Why did they pick that venue?

    we are also on two bright lights which is much easier to submit that way

    Great display of dogs being safely cared for. We have a King Charles Cavaliere, a beautifyl guy named Obie Wan Kanobi. Will send you his picture.

    I am concerned bleach is the product to use where dogs are actually located as it may burn their coats and nostrils. There are other cleaning products available for this purpose. Might want to check pet supply storesReplyCancel

    Dear Burns Brothers
    I run a small headstone cleaning business in Limerick City Rep of Ireland and after looking through your site I have to say I think some of your products are amazing. I have yet to come across a company in Ireland that can produce quality like you. I would be very interested if you could email me some information on your products if you sell to Europe and do you have a catalogue.

    Thank you

    Declan O’Neill.ReplyCancel

    My sister passed away 2/12/15. The ground should be ready around late Spring.
