You may remember Mary and her awesome dog and horse shoot from last summer… I remember us discussing how she was dating this great guy…how happy she was…and it was obvious – -she absolutely glowed when his name came up!
Fast forward to the fall when I get an AMAZING call from Mary — that she and Ryan were engaged! They are getting married this fall — and as it should be — they BOTH glow when they are together. Ryan loves animals and nature as much as Mary does — I can’t wait to see what crazy details they come up with for their wedding day.
As the day approached for their engagement shoot — I was watching the weather and realized that the day we were going to shoot was supposed to be AWFUL — so I shot a quick email and basically BEGGED them to shoot with me TODAY as it was sunny and pretty and I really really wanted a nice day for them…needless to say — they said yes, and although it was CRAZY cold out — we still managed to have fun with their cool dogs and great light.
I can’t believe I got all four of them in the same frame…sitting at the same time!
The light! The light!
This field was awesome. I don’t know if Mary and Ryan LOVED being all up in the brush — but it LOOKED cool. And that is what is important in photographs, eh?
I’m not afraid to tell you this: I took this one only for Mary.
Dear Mary and Ryan. I had fun. I love your dogs. And you two are so great together. Love Tam. PS: Please bring dogs to wedding. ::grin::
I can’t believe how amazing this is. I have been LUCKY enough to be published in two magazines this Spring — the FANTABULOUS WellWed Magazine — in which Stacy K’s dream of a wedding is featured — OMG so so beautiful! Stacy K and Ozgur’s wedding was at the INCREDIBLE Artisan Works — the perfect fit for this colorful crazy wedding, and I could not have gotten the day captured as wonderfully as I did without the help of Rachael Hadiashar of Merge Weddings — I am so so blessed to be surrounded by such amazing and talented people. Cake by Deb Stirone at Gourmet Goodies — Jason Ripple at Rock Paper Scissors Salon did the crazy cool hair – Joan Lincoln did makeup — Hank Parker provided the chairs and tables and linens — and of COURSE Stacy K handled the style, design, decor, floral arrangments and everything else amazing. WHAT A TEAM PEOPLE!!
Oh. And if any of my brides didn’t get a copy and want one…I might have a ‘couple’ extra– like…1,000. ::laughing:: You should have seen the clerk at Wegmans when I went up to the counter and plunked them down. I was totally disappointed that she didn’t say.a.WORD. I mean come on! I was bursting to tell her why I was buying so many! ::shaking head::
I also had the honor of being interviewed by American Photo Magazine — Theano Nikitas did an INCREDIBLE job writing an article on the new direction senior photography is taking. I was STOKED to be included in the mix of talented photographers — and it was incredible seeing my work in a national publication. Truly jaw dropping omg how is this happening wonderful! Thank you so much — I am honored and humbled that I might have something interesting to say!
I had the opportunity to work with the amazingly talented and uber-cool chick behind the genius that is Reckless Necklace. Seriously. These pieces are original and GORGEOUS. Blynn needed help updating her website — and although it is not live yet — I can promise you that when it IS — it will be CRAZY COOL.
This was a multi-person collaboration and I could not have gotten these images without the cool headed and idea driven talent that is Stacy K – and the technical genius that is Erich Camping. We ALL had input into these images and I love love love them so much. We had a great group of girls who modeled for us — and I was super impressed with the professionalism and energy all the girls put into delivering images that sold Blynn’s cool necklaces!

You know it’s been busy when two MONTHS creep by and you don’t update your blog. Then…when you finally DO want to update your blog you can’t remember the password to…erm…update your blog.
OBviously I’ve figured that out! I have a bunch of stuff to share — so I’m blogging this morning — so forgive me for the blog dump today (that sounds funny and somehow…wrong…doesn’t it? ::laughing::)
I had the opportunity to work with the AMAZING team over at the American Heart Association in Rochester. They contacted me to do a series of images of survivors with the concept being “The Face of Heart Disease”.
I have never been so moved and touched by a project. I LOVED meeting each and every one of these incredibly resilient and awesome people. Truly. I am a better person because of it. I took on the project because my family has a MAJOR history with heart disease — and as my mom tells me — my grandfather is very proud of me right now. ::sniff::
The posters will be on display at the Heart Walk on April 10th – if you are participating or cheering your loved ones on — see you there!
