…And here are a few film captures from my recent trip to New York City with my friend Cindy. I needed to be in New York for a couple of evening meetings, but I managed to work from the incredible New York Public Library during the day. I’m not sure “incredible” even does this place justice. Is it cool if I just go ahead and say I have a New York-based office now? I’m swanky.

While in the City, I needed to meet with both a bride and a fellow photographer. This turned into one of those beautiful evenings where the stars just aligned and a wonderful group of women came together! I had Cindy with me, Julie Williams came along with her sister Amy, and Petra – the bride and also an dear college friend – joined to meet us all for a scrumptious dinner in the East Village! I seriously did not want the night to end, and contemplated how I could re-create the whole thing the next day. Thankfully, I will be back in the city for a couple of engagement shoots soon!

As for Julie? Well we’ve got something brewing that I’ll share with you soon, but thus far we’ve only been chatting via e-mail. I’m so psyched we were able to meet in person on the East Coast!

Check out my new office…


And this French bakery is my new water cooler.

This was a quick trip, down on the train one morning and back the next evening. I’ve always done the City by train and love it that way. Thanks for joining on the adventure, Cindy!

This is looking like a busy week in blog world, because boy do I have a lot of things in store for you! Not to mention that May begins one heck of a rad wedding season ahead, so hang on to your hats (and fascinators)!

Today, I’m excited to share a peek of the shoot I did back in March with the wedding resource site Prepare to Wed. I met an incredible group of vendors as we all came together to brainstorm our wedding inspirations for the Round Barn Farm in Waitsfield, Vermont. More to come about the team and our photos from the shoot soon, but here’s a glimpse for now!

    Julie - Well, this looks rather fun. Can’t wait to see the rest from this little shoot!

Crosby Boat Yard, in Osterville MA, is a stunning place to pull out a film camera in the off-season… I don’t quite remember the errand I was running this day, but I turned down West Bay Road on a whim and am SO glad I did!

The old boat yard was established in 1850. It’s a cozy little nook on the way out to the private island of Oyster Harbors, and I’ve visited for various reasons over my years growing up here (friends’ boats, changing restaurants, etc).  These photos capture a particularly unique view because the docks will very soon be packed with large, expensive boats. I love being able to really enjoy the rustic character of Cape Cod before the commotion returns. I like to think these kind of scenes are truly what draws people here!



All photos captured on a Canon 1V camera using Fuji Pro 400H film. Not a lick of touching afterward (I heart film!).

    Kate Stolz - I grew up here. My grandmother was Jeannette Crosby.

Hooray!  The first four rolls of film are back from the lab, and since we’re in for a very sun-filled weekend, I thought I’d greet you with fresh crocus blooms this morning! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Kate - Stacey! I am so excited you’re shooting film! I’m just getting back to shooting film too! What are you shooting with?

    stacey - I snagged a Canon 1V but I think this was shot with an old Canon T70 and Kodak Ektar 100 film! Let’s chat more!

    Gordon - I’m thinking about getting back into film again, too. I’m hoping to get my hands on an inexpensive Rolleiflex or Yashica TLR to shoot some medium format black and white. Going to process my own film (which I miss dearly) and get a serviceable scanner to digitize the negatives.

Good morning to you all! I hope everyone’s bright-eyed and busy-tailed for the Royal Wedding today! Despite a crazy exhausting week, I woke up minutes before my 4am alarm to tune in to the live coverage. This is something that, to be honest, I’m not really sure I would have paid that much attention to in the past, but this morning I’m on edge because I catch adorable little glances between the couple and can’t find the photographer anywhere! I know this event will define wedding trends for the next few years.

Catherine will always be Kate, and their love has been very simple and “common”, all things considered. When thinking of what I wanted to give away today in celebration, I thought I would help to celebrate common, everyday love! We all have our prince!

So head on over and become a fan on the Stacey Hedman Photography Facebook page! I’m encouraging you to snap a photo of something British today – any interpretation or handmade creation you can think of! Be creative! Share it on the page for all to enjoy, and have your friends “like” the photo as much as they want! More points for more likes. We’ll be voting on the best photo at the end of today, and granting (sounds fancy) one full portrait session for a loving couple around New England!

When photographing couples, I love to explore a more relaxed style that let’s you just be you, together. I’m looking for any two people who are in love, whether dating or married over 20 years! If you’re not in the New England area, you can still participate and perhaps gift your session or contribute to travel.

This session can be at the location of your choice, pending schedule availability any time of the year. You’ll receive approximately 30 favorite photos on high-resolution DVD.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with today! Enjoy the wedding festivities!

    Cindy - How fun! Really hard to find something around the house that’s English, but I think I found something, finally… ;)
