I had the pleasure of capturing Mark & Caitlin's proposal! Caitlin was in Rochester visiting family and friends while Mark secretly flew into town. He planned with her friends to walk her down Park Ave for dinner. Or so she thought! We surprised her on the street in the spot they had their first date!! Caitlin was in total shock! Here are the highlights from beginning to end. Playing paparazzi was a total blast and I think more proposals should be captured. These moments are so special. Congratulations, Caitlin & Mark!!
The yards is a collaborative art space located in rochester's historic public market district and is the winter studio of artists emily harper, sarah peck, rose richter, and rachel farley. I photographed these ladies in their studios among their work and follow residents this winter. View the entire interview here.
I am the happiest inspiring others to step outside, get moving, and enjoy the the present moment. I believe being outside awakens all our senses, opens our creativity, decreases stress and allows our thoughts to become a little curious about life as we explore. Personally, being outside in nature provides so many calming yet engaging feelings and I love to see people feel this way as well. — nicole
i started shooting regularly with 35mm film a few months ago and i'm not turning back (sounds dramatic).
my first experience with 35mm film and photography in general (outside of my iphone) was last year in a dark room class at the genesee center of the arts with mark watts (take his classes!!)
i really enjoy the dark room and all but after that class session ended i jumped right into digital. which is why going back is much sweeter.
i am less stressed.
i slow down and enjoy where / what i'm presently shooting.
i pay more attention to the details.
i spend little to no time editing (cropping / straightening). if that doesn't convince you i don't know what will.
picking up the cd / prints and pulling out the contact sheet in the car is really exciting. i could go on.
i edit my digital photos to look like film. VSCO filters are based off film.
let's get back to the basics. why do we need so many pixels?! grain is so good.
(i've been using my dad's old pentax k1000 and kodak 400 film #loyal) dm me if you have any questions!
A few weeks ago I visited lyons, new york to learn about h.g hotchkiss and how he became one of the largest producers of peppermint oil in the world. You can view my guest blog over on exploring upstate!
Sunday I went on the landmark society of western new york's 46th annual house and garden tour. The self-guided tour went through seven homes in the east avenue and east boulevard areas (my favorite streets). The tour was of private homes so photography was unfortunately not permitted. I did my best…
