What a wonderful year it was!

My goodness, 2012 has been quite the year over here at CTP.  I could not have imagined meeting so many amazing people this year!  To each and every one of you, thank you.  I am so lucky to be able to know all of you.  Whether you’re one of my brides, moms, dads, kids, classmates, or even a Blue Man, you have all made me want to be the absolute best version of me that I can be!  Here’s to 2013 and many more adventures!

Blue Man Group Boston | The final result!

If you’ve been following along, you’ve seen my behind the scenes look at Blue Man Group in Boston, and a sneak peek at the show  (if you haven’t head on over to those posts first to see some of the stills that I used as part of this piece!).  All of your comments and posts on all of these have definitely put a smile on my face, so thank you!

Take a look at the show and the photo shoot here, and for a behind the scenes look, click here!

I am thrilled to FINALLY share my final multimedia piece!  This was my first soiree into the multimedia world, and I thoroughly enjoyed the process!

I have to say thank you to everyone who helped make this project happen, but a few major shout outs are definitely in order to Laura Camien, Lisa Hackman, Meagan Becker, Jason McLin, Greg Balla, Mike Brown, and Brian Tavener, for being absolutely wonderful!

Blue Man Group Boston | The Show and the Shoot

You’ve seen behind the scenes (If you haven’t, click here!), so it’s show time! Blue Man Group is truly an experience, and its pretty impossible to not be involved in the show.  From marshmallows, to Captain Crunch, to the Drumbone, the Blue Men do not look at anything in an ordinary way, and pull the entire audience along for the ride without a single word.  And in that spirit, I’ll let the show images speak for themselves…

And now for something completely different… Caroline Talbot Photography is Blue.

No, I’m not sad, quite the opposite actually! I am very excited to share these next few posts with you! First, a little bit of back story. A couple of months ago, I started the multimedia storytelling modules at CDIA. We were told we had two deliverables. The first was an 8-10 photo essay telling a story about an interesting subject, and the second was to create a 5 minute multimedia piece on that same subject (if you want to skip ahead to the video, click here).

My first thought was “I’m so not into doing a multimedia project, I am a wedding photographer”, very quickly followed by “who the heck do I know that will want to do this?” After racking my brain for a while and coming up with nothing, I took a break and went to editing some images from a recent trip to Vegas, and came across this image (which is NOT of any real people – these are wax figures of the original Blue Men):

For those of you who have known me for a while, you know that I really enjoy the show and have seen it more than my fair share of times! I’ve always related to the curiosity of the character of the Blue Man, and the quirky ideas that they come up with throughout the performance.

Abbie & Devin | Lovebird Session, Larz Anderson Park | Boston Engagement Photographer

It’s a wonderful Thanksgiving evening tonight, and while everyone is wrapping up their evenings with their friends and family, I am so happy to share this super amazing couple who has a lot to be thankful for this year!  Abbie & Devin were kind enough to volunteer as models for a day of engagement shoots, and were so absolutely sweet.  They also have a little one on the way, and have finally made the news public today!
