Ice Cream Social

Words + Pictures by Angela Cappetta

Ice cream was the theme for this engagement shoot at this power couple's home in Brooklyn, NY.  I proposed that we shoot something quirky and fun with ice cream cones and popsicles. From Courtney: "LOVE THE ICE CREAM CONE IDEA! You have no idea how important ice cream is in our family. It's perfect!!" From Steve: "You had me at ice cream".

I mystically nailed it. I had no idea that they loved ice cream as much as they do. I thought it would be fun to have them make cones together and eat them in their kitchen, then we'd go to their roof with a panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline, and change to popsicles. I even rented a vintage nikon lens to impart a gritty, old New York feel to some pictures in their building's garden (sans glace).

Family Time in Whistler

Words + Pictures by Angela Cappetta

When the Hsieh family asked me to fly to Vancouver to shoot their biggest, three-generation family reunion, yet, I said yes (duh). Then I said: oh my, this is going to be interesting.

Families are complex units, with depth and breadth that rivals any element on the periodic table. This family, however, had one goal and one goal only: to be together.  I hope you enjoy this Canadian compendium of this worldwide and far flung group, who put a pin in the globe and gathered in one of the most remarkable places on earth to be photographed together on a glacier. And I was happy to oblige.
