Tammy Watson Photography, Williams Lake, BC January 27, 2013. When it comes to wedding portraits, what works for heterosexual couples may not work for same-sex couples. Enter Capturing Love: The Art of Lesbian & Gay Wedding Photography, a groundbreaking new visual guide by veteran wedding photographer Thea Dodds of Authentic Eye Photography, and same-sex wedding pioneer Kathryn Hamm ofGayWeddings.com, available from Authentic Weddings in limited release via Lulu.com and in nationwide release in March 2013. Capturing Lovefeatures captivating photographs of forty-six couples from thirty-eight of the top gay and lesbian wedding photographers who represent 19 states, Canada, Italy and the U.K, including Tammy Watson of Williams Lake, BC.
Through diverse examples of unconventional wedding portraits and new twists on conventional wedding imagery, as well as detailed commentary from the authors, the book provides needed support to wedding photographers who must revisit the rules of traditional wedding and engagement portrait posing to better serve all couples in today’s diverse wedding market.
Said Hamm: “Capturing Love would not have been possible without the generous contributions and talents of the many photographers who were willing to share their work with us. We are incredibly grateful to Tammy Watson for joining us on this special journey and thrilled to showcase her work. We hope Capturing Love inspires every photographer shooting a same-sex wedding to think outside the box, and to create photos that truly capture the one-of-a-kind magic present at each couple’s wedding day.”
Said Dodds: “The image of Tammy WatsonPhotography we selected was culled from amongst thousands of candidates. But Tammy's represented beautifully the answer to three simple but important questions: Are these images authentic? Do these images reflect intimacy? Are these images believable? For any couple–straight or gay–an engagement or wedding portrait should elicit a ‘yes’ to all three questions, as Tammy Watson's photograph did. That combination of authenticity, intimacy, and believability will be different for every couple, and the wide range of photos of same-sex couples in Capturing Love illustrates just how diverse wedding portraiture can, and should, be.”
Said Tammy Watson: "...thrilled to be included with amazing artists sharing their captures of great love stories

{week 1} sycamore tree

Sunday, January 13, 2013

okay....last year I didn't have any photo projects of my trio. Tonight we chatted and it was decided that I could have the honour to do a weekly photo of the three of them without too much complaining...my family really gets tired of me snapping away at them all the time. The girls repeat " yes we know we will appreciate it when we are older" Haha!  I love albums and this weekly challenge makes for a great album at the end of the year.
Above is from our adventures in Arizona. On our little road trip to Sedona. Along the way; tucked into a mountainside is Montezuma Castle. it is estimated to have been built in the 1300's. by an ancient Indian tribe; Sinaqua.  It was very very busy with sooo many people. But we enjoyed the area. The first time we seen a sycamore tree! I LOVED this tree. Amazing and smooth and full of colors. Very unique! It was a sunny crisp day...enjoy the peak into my life with our trio! ***remember to capture your family doing daily family things..these memories will be treasured. (ya ya Mom...we get it!:)

{baby} Toben

Thursday, January 10, 2013

seems to be a run on little boy babies in my life lately!~Very excited for this lovely family on the safe arrival of their sweet son. Master Toben was a dream to capture. He was sleep and snuggly!~ His two big sisters were sweet assistance and happy to get in front of my camera.

He is going to be one loved and snuggled little boy! He has his work cut out for him to keep up to his sisters. I'm a little partial to this family dynamic...since this is how we roll here at our home. Little brothers RULE!~ thanks Sarah and Glenn for letting me capture your handsome little son.

{baby} Chase and family

Monday, January 7, 2013

the greatest compliment a client can give me is to book me again and again.
 I love following families and capturing their special moments. I captured big Bro Max when he arrived a couple of years ago. Its great to spend time with this sweet family as they welcome another lovely little man into their lives. Master Chase wasn't having anything to do with sleep when I was there. He was all over watching what I was doing. Ahhh! ~ baby snuggles! Thanks Kevin and Ali...you have a beautiful family.
