My love for Etsy August 29, 2008

Filed under: Random,Uncategorized,weddings — staceyilyse @ 12:10 pm

So Im sure many of you know what Etsy is… here is a link in case you are wondering ETSY It is this great site with all these hand made or custom made items that people are selling… I actually got my hair piece (photo will be below) from a designer on Etsy. Sooo.. there have been a few things that I have been trying to decide on on such as, if Morgan should have some cool custom made boutineer, or just have the 5 dollar one from the florist?  Any advice on that?  Also, I really want one of those “wedding orbs”  So I have posted below one that I have found on Etsy that is really cute, and a photo of the other wedding orb… I think I need to have a vote on this one!  Also, this I just thought was really fun… do you remember the “cootie catchers” from when we were young?  Well someone will make them specialized with your names and details from your relationship and you can have them on all the table at the wedding…FOOD FOR THOUGHT!

here are some photos!

Rebecca and Matt~ a wedding by Roee Dori August 28, 2008

Filed under: photography related,weddings — staceyilyse @ 11:48 am

Hi All! Been a few days 🙂  I was off in Rhode Island shooting a wedding and then before that I was celebrating my BIRTHDAY!!! (August 23rd)  I love birthdays!!!

Anyways, a few weeks back my associate Roee photographed a wonderful couple, Rebecca and Matt. So you will never believe how Roee ended up shooting their wedding.  Last September, I was photographing Matt’s college buddys wedding, David ~ from the slideshow Jennifer and David.  Well, all night long I keep looking over at this one guest, thinking, I know her, she looks SO familiar! Well, at some point during the evening I asked her… “where are you from originally”  and she says Bergen County, nj.  I then say to her, you when to Highlands (my HS) and she says back ~ “Wait a second, your Vanessa ____’s best friend! I used to be her doubles partner in tennis!” And their you have it… Becca and Matt.  So when they got engaged, they came to me and wanted me to shoot their wedding… I was booked, but it turned out they loved Roee and his work ~ so we got to keep Becca and Matt! 🙂

Here are some photos and a link to their slideshow CLICK HERE!

Awwwww... puppys!!!

Hannah and Gary got Married! August 20, 2008

Filed under: photography related,weddings — staceyilyse @ 9:23 pm

I met Hannah and Gary about a year before their wedding.  They flew in from Liverpool, England to plan their wedding here in the wonderful “Big Apple” . They both got ready at The Bryant Park hotel ~ love that place!!  and decided to get married and have their reception with about 60 of their closest family and friends (most of whom flew over from England at Penthouse 15 which is part of loft 11 and looked amazing thanks to help of Hollie Holmes of Exquisite Affairs Productions They had some of the most heartfelt, funny toasts I have heard in a long time and you can really tell that they are madly in love with each other and just ‘get’ each other. Here is a slideshow from their day as well as some of my favorite images below.

I just joined twitter

In bigger stacey ilyse photo news, I took some photos of my cousin’s kids… and later today or tomorrow I plan to upload a bunch of them… I just can narrow it down to less then 30! There are too many adorable ones of them all… and of the baby!!! SOOOO cute. I want to eat him up!

On fun wedding updates, I sent out our OOT invites, and I am sending out our local guest’s invites on thursday!!! Aaannnnddd according to theknot I have 69 days to go! how scary is that!! Oh, I also got the bracelete I plan to wear that day… and it was on sale for $20!!

This weekend was great! It was one of the first weekends I had NOTHING wedding or photography related to do…. sooo my lovely Vanessa planned a rafting (not a white water rafting) trip on the deleware…It was GREAT! It only took 1.5 hrs to get there from NYC and the weather was PERFECT! I would highly recommend doing this with some friends if you get a chance… we used this company called adventure sport.  it was great.. As soon as some pictures show up on facebook I will post them to my blog.

Also, remember… Im running that special, feel free to sign up for some photos!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — staceyilyse @ 6:19 pm

Hi All!

So I have been inspired lately… As you saw on my post below I recently took some wonderful photos of Sheri, Keith and their 2 girls Allison and Rachel.  I also just took some photos of my wonderful cousin Hillary and her family. I ALSO have been inspired by some other photogs. and their beautiful engagement photos… also, I am enjoying the weather, the summer, and just feel the need to be “artsy” and try some new things. SOOOOOOOO with all that said, I am running some specials.

I would love if any mommies who are pregnant, just had a baby OR if you just want some fun new photos of you and your kids (any age!!!) to come forward and let me know.

I would love to photograph you all for 1.5hrs + the disk of images and 2 signed 8×10’s for only $250 ~ I normal would charge $375 my only stipulation is that you must be open minded to having some fun journalistic, artistic photos being taken… also I will use some interesting effects afterwards.. but dont worry, I promise you will have more then enough photos to find some you just LOVE!

For those of you who are engaged.. I have some cool idea’s that I would love love love to try out but just need some willing participants… like I mentioned before, I promise you will have MORE then enough photos to find some you will love, but if you get in touch and we go over some of the idea’s and you are down, that would be great!

The special I am running for the engagement photos are: 1.5 hrs of shooting + the disk of images and 2 signed 8×10’s for $375 (my current price for enagement photos is now $500)

LASTLY, My associate Roee is also excited to participate in this special as well. for the family/children photos the price would be $200

and for engagement photos it would be $300

Im shredin it

Filed under: Uncategorized — staceyilyse @ 1:21 pm

So I just did my first day of the 30-day shred… I will say, Im SOOOO glad it is on 25 min!  It wasnt the most impossible workout I ever did, but it was hard, and I want to do it well…

On another topic, I started to pull out my 4×5 pressman camera to use some of my polaroid film… only to find that some of it is all messed up! and now I am sooo bummed, because polaroid decided to stop making their film that works with the 4×5 cameras.  ALSO.. their is this other type of film that is called pull and peel, and I have all these great old slides of from my parents (my mom was into photo too! 🙂 and I am not scrambling to make prints of the ones I like~ of course I can scan the slides, but these photos have so much more personality!

I will post some of them today 🙂
