Engagement of Gabe and Olivia

I just had the honor of shooting the engagement of Gabe and Olivia, a young couple who met at Purdue University and have decided to spend the rest of their lives together. For this session, I shot outdoors at Metea here in Fort Wayne. Indiana has some the most beautiful fall colors I’ve seen …

Unedited – Why B&W – Full Attention

As you may already know, last week I started a series on black and white, why I use it, and why I like it so much. In my previous post I talked about the philosophy behind black and white, but today I’d like to talk about what black and white …

Unedited – Why B&W: The Philosophy

Very often I’m asked, “why would you still shoot in black and white in the 21st century?” What a meaningful question! I feel there’s several answers to that question. This is why I’m starting a 3-part series titled “Why B&W,” where I’ll explore why black and white is still relevant …

Wedding of Guille and Gaby

Last week I talked about Guille and Gaby’s engagement. Today it’s time for me to confess that Guille is my brother, which is why this wedding was particularly special to me. I was not the first shooter for this event, in fact, I was not even supposed to shoot at all! I assisted …

New Social Media Pages

You may think that I’ve waited too long to create my Facebook page… and you are right! Just yesterday I started Arenzana Photography on Facebook and Google+. Up until now, Arenzana Photography lived in my heart and my own personal Facebook profile. This venture has now found its own home on …

So Good to Be Back

This past couple of weeks I’ve been enjoying some time back in Spain. Yes, a wedding was the excuse, but being back home for a few days is always refreshing. The food, the people, the culture… so different from life in the US. Having paella by the seaside on a warm …

Summer Weekend at the Lake

I wanted to take a few minutes and post some shots of a recent outing to Coldwater Lake, Michigan. We got to spend some time with our good friends Arielle and José with little Dahlia as the protagonist. She keeps getting bigger by the minute and I can think of …

Im-press

I just received my new pro-photo printer. I’ve been playing around with it and I must say I’ve been very pleased with the results of the few test shots I put on paper. I will need to, however, create several templates and profiles for paper sizes, paper types and image …
