justin + mary







Yesterday Mike and I had the distinct pleasure of photographing two of my closest friends, Justin & Mary Marantz. This came about not just because we could shoot them, like, ALL the time and get great shots, and why the heck wouldn't we want to do that as often as possible?? But because Mary saw the slide show that Mike put together of me for my workshop with Steve and was so moved by it that she hired us to shoot them and do the slide show of them and their work for their blog! They had some ideas and were willing to just plop it in our laps and let us run with it, which was really fun for us and challenging at the same time since we had really only done this for my studio.

I have known the Marantz's for just over a year and have gotten to see so many sides to them- they are so professional as I like to tell Mary (which makes her laugh, but she totally IS) but it's really a farce- because they are just two very well dressed goof balls who are just crazy about each other and like to not only laugh at me and Mike but at themselves as well... so yes there was a lot of laughing going on because the material was endless!

We started off in new Haven and then made it to Steve DePino's stomping grounds and he showed us one of his favorite fields of Guilford where the light was just ridiculous! We got quite the day for shooting, though it was much colder than it looks.

Thanks for being such troopers for our shoot and being so patient for every aspect of it! I can't wait to see what Mike is going to put together for this!!

You always have some really cool places to shoot. I really like how you use balloons, so much fun!! I officially think that Justin and Mary are some of the most photographed people ever, but it works because they are an awesome couple!! Nice shots as always Carla, we have to shoot together when you guys get back from Vienna. Have a great trip.
