IT'S SNOWING!!!!

I don't know about you .... but I am soo excited because it's snowing outside right now! As I may have mentioned before .. for the past 3 1/2 years I have lived in Elizabeth City it has never snowed in November! We usually only get one snow fall a year and that is in January ... during the middle of the night .. when no one gets to see it. But this morning Josh, my husband, left early for work .. then came back in to wake me up because of the snow. I'm soo happy!! As it definitely makes me feel the holiday spirit in the air!!!! =0)

Here are some pictures from this morning of my dogs (Paige & Surka) and me ....

If you would like to get any holiday pictures for yourself or your Christmas cards ... please let me know as soon as you can!! Thanks!





Have a great day!! I'm gonna go back to playing in the snow!! =0)

Take care, Jess

Featured in Southern Living magazine!!

I heard some great news this morning ... that my photo that I took of the Chocolate House's Elizabeth City Candy Bars is going to be featured now in Southern Living magazine in a special North Carolina section of its January issue!!!! I know I wont be credited for the shot as it was through my other job at Elizabeth City Area CVB, but I'm excited none-the-less! When I have a copy of the article I'll show it to you.

Have a great day!! What a great way to kick off the New Year!

Take care, Jess

The holidays are coming...

Hello all ...

If you live in Elizabeth City then you might have seen the light flurries we had today! Which is unusual for this area, as for the past 3 years I have lived here we usually only get snow on one day a year (which is usually some time in January). So, I thought that was great!! =0) Especially from being from Maine ... I do miss the snow around the holidays so I'm glad to have the cold weather back down here.

Also ... I have now redecorated my blog with a holiday theme ... so if you are subscribed to my feed and haven't checked it out in a while then please do.
________________________

Anyway ... if you are looking for some holiday outdoor portraits (unless you have an indoor location you want to be taking at) please let me know as I am willing to take some for you. If you live in Elizabeth City (or about a 15/20 minute drive away from EC) the photo shoot fee will be waived, but if you live in the Hampton Roads area in Virginia or in Northeast North Carolina and are interested in a photo shoot then prices are negotiable.

If you have any questions please let me know how I can help you by leaving a comment.

Have a great day!!

Take care, Jess

Elizabeth City Wharf with a Mistress

For those who aren't familiar with Elizabeth City. Then I'll start by saying that in the downtown district is a Mariners Wharf, basically a park to the rest of the town, but to boaters it is a nice place to stay free for 48 hours on there way to their next adventure. And around this time in October every year we start seeing the docks slips becoming full of boaters heading south for the winter. It is really a sight to witness, as you can see in the photo below.

Two days ago boaters Skip & Kathleen pulled into the Elizabeth City slips on their 1930's Schooner called the Mistress. It is a gorgeous boat inside and out, I had to take some pictures of it.

Here is a shot of the inside of the boat:

On Wednesday, October 23rd Skip & Kathleen dressed up their boat with it's flags. To their request they asked if they could borrow an Elizabeth City flag to put onto their boat, which I was able to get for them.


If you would like to learn more about Schooner MISTRESS and see the work Skip did to rebuild her, please visit their website at www.1930schoonermistress.com. Or to see more of my photography of the Mistress please click here. And to end our look at the Mistress here is a photo of Skip & Kathleen...

Dismal Swamp State Park

I was asked to make another version of a video I made in March 2008 since the people from the Dismal Swamp State Park wanted their updated info on it. So, here is the newer version with some upgrades ....

Dismal Swamp State Park from From Me to You ... Videos on Vimeo.

From Me to You ... Video, Photography, & Book Reviews created this video of South Mills, NC's Dismal Swamp Visitors Center in 2008.

About the Dismal Swamp Visitors Center: Dismal Swamp State Park allows a unique wilderness experience in a landscape that has been witness to American Indian hunting parties, exploration by George Washington and the story of the Underground Railroad. The park features 20 miles of trails, beyond a 2,000-foot boardwalk that puts visitors in the midst of the Great Dismal Swamp. Birding and viewing abundant wildlife are favored activities. Mountain biking on the trails and kayaking the adjacent Dismal Swamp Canal are both encouraged. Visitors may bring their own equipment or rent at the park. Regular interpretive programs about the wetlands ecology and history of the famed swamp complement museum-quality exhibits in the visitor center.

Rose Bud's are here to stay!

Today I helped out my other job (at the Elizabeth City Area CVB) by creating a logo for them! About 3 months ago I did up a video of Elizabeth City's Rose Buddies. For that video I created my own logo for them since as far as I knew at that time they didn't have one of their own. So, yesterday when my boss (the director of tourism) talked about having a logo for the Rose Buddies ... I told him about mine. And after some editing today ... I have now created their official logo!! I'm so happy with myself!

To find out more about the Rose Buddies please check out www.DiscoverElizabethCity.com. Also .. click here to check out the Rose Buddies video I created!

Wedding Wishes...

Today I'm taking photography for the wedding of Heather Wilkinson & Jason Niegos! I wish them the best that life can bring them! In addition, I hope that they'll be able to enjoy their wedding day to it's fullest.

Today is a dream realized from years past
The white dress, the wedding cake, the promise of a love that lasts

Today is the beginning of a journey the two of you now share
The vow to love, honor, and cherish now seen in the rings you wear

But tomorrow, tomorrow you will wake as husband and wife
Where the person next to you is yours for life

And so my wish to you both is that when you wake each day
You will turn to each other with the same look you share today

Best wishes to you both!

Love, Jessica

Busy as a Beaver

Hello everyone,

I know I should have at least 3 new videos up by now but I have gotten busy again.

The Advertising/Marketing Co-Op Campaign that the Elizabeth City Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (at my other job) has started up the beginning of this month. So, I have been busy trying to get things in order for the almost 30 videos I'll be creating for that. I have currently been working on the video for that office as the "Elizabeth City" video ... and after a few more changes you should be able to see what it looks like.

Also, I got my first job recently!! I'm going to be taking photography for a wedding happening on August 8, 2008. And the bride is being very sweet in allowing me to use the photography taking and making a video out of it. So, in about another month or so you'll be able to see that.

More things to come soon!!

Take care, Jess

Award for Ron Paul Video!

If you haven't heard the news then I thought I would tell you on here ... the Elizabeth City Area Convention & Visitors Bureau won an "Innovation Award, in the category of “Best Bureau Local Stakeholder Relations,” was shared with the Albemarle Economic Development Commission (AEDC) for a joint public relations campaign promoting Elizabeth City’s headquarters as the launch for the Ron Paul blimp." (taken from the ECACVB's latest press release) Part of the credit of "promoting Elizabeth City" as the headquarters is because of the video that I created and let my office use. I am very honored about this award.

In addition, my office (the ECACVB) won another Innovation Award for the free websites/blog that I have put together to get our word out more. Which definately is an accomplishment since I spend quite a lot of time working on them.

To read more about the press release then please click here.

Have a great day everyone!

Take care, Jess

    Rose Buddies - May 7, 2008

    Elizabeth City's Rose Buddies - May 2008 from From Me to You ... Videos on Vimeo.

    From Me to You ... Video, Photography, & Book Reviews created this video during a time when Jess (the creator) worked for the Elizabeth City Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB).

    Elizabeth City's Rose Buddies have been around since the 1980s, a tradition started by Fred Fearing and Joe Kramer. In recent years the Elizabeth City Area CVB took over hosting the parties and this video is of Dave Thomas (head Rose Buddy at the time who has now passed away) explaining about the ICW and what new boaters will expect.


    Well ... I am an honorary "Rose Buddy" since I work for the Elizabeth City Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. So, this past Wednesday, May 7th, my boss asked me to take some photos of the Wine & Cheese party that the Rose Buddies put on for the boaters. During this time I also had videotaped part of it .... and above is a Promo Clip to show everyone.

    Going Out of town!

    Hi all,

    I'm sorry but I'm putting things on hold for six days.

If you need anything or would like to request some work to be done for you then please let me know by commenting or emailing me.

    I will definitely have my camera with me and if I have any good shots they'll be uploaded into where I sell my photography for all to see and/or buy.

    Have a good week all!!

    New things are happenin'!

    Well I have a project that I am working on, for a friend who's co-worker is leaving. So, that will help me play around with my new equipment! I hope it'll turn out well and they'll all like it!

    And if they do like it maybe that'll get me some more business, which would be a plus!

    ----------------

    On another note ... I'm still working on the 'opening your own business' paperwork. And hopefully by the time I get back on my vacation it'll be completed. Wish me luck!

    Take care, Jess

    Website in progress...

    Today, I'm finishing my website. I almost have the front page finished. Yet I still need the other pages and I really need to figure out my prices.

    Tomorrow, I am planning on registering my name and possibly finding out if I need to get any permits/licenses. And hopefully after that I'll apply for a IRS tax id. Then everything will be official!

    This Friday, March 21st/Good Friday, I'm planning on going to the Dismal Swamp's Dedication Ceremony of the park's new education center! I'm planning on taking pictures and making a video. The video is going to be a sample one to show what I'm able to do for the businesses that would like to possibly hire me for their events. Yet any footage I do for myself I'm also going to have them be open for buying, if that business/organization would like.

    Anyway ... that's all for now.

    Take care - Jess

    Website

    Today I'm trying to get used to all of the behind the scenes of putting together a website. So, far so good. But It's a slow process. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon.

    On Monday I'm planning on Registering the business name with the Register of Deeds office here in Pasquotank County. Then I have to see if I have/need and licenses/permits ... then I need to get a business tax ID.

    Fun stuff. Wish me luck!
