Alina's Wedding! Yes, Alina Vacariu got Married!

The last couple years I have been posting many fashion photos of a favorite muse, Alina Vacariu. Most of you know her as a sexy lingerie model, but you often don't feel the sweetness, beauty and warmth. In my first post of her, I included one photo that was not really a fashion or glamor shot. But instead, one that showed this particular sweet look she gives off. Today I am happy to share some photos from her wedding in Central Park last month. A beautiful and freezing ceremony with close friends and family in New York. No being too jealous of her husband, Marius. He is a very cool guy: a manly man whose sweetness of his own comes out when she smiles.


Alina is such a natural beauty. There is zero retouching here, just some color changes in Lightroom.

Here are links to all my fashion posts with Alina. Alina is with Elite Models and won Romania's Model of the Year in 1998. She has appeared in Maxim, Stuff, a TV commercial for Time Warner Cable and countless other lingerie campaigns. They can be seen “Sexy Beauty”, “Fashion” , “Fashion 2″, "Patriotic" and “Wig”.

Times Square Billboard with Vault49

I have a billboard up in Times Square with the famed graphic illustration company, Vault49. You will remember our many collaborations; Susana Monaco with Mina Cvetkovic, Judith Bedard, London's Conningsby Gallery with Bekah Jekins, Digital Arts cover with Taylor Warren, Orange Life cover with Taylor Warren and 3D cutouts of a lion.


Here is an ad we did for Wrigley's Gum. I went out to Times Square the other day to photograph it in its environment. It is above the Sephora Store. Hopefully, we will have a behind the scenes video of the making of it in the future. We shot a bunch of footage, but I have not followed up on its creation. It is a very cool process that Vault does.










Thanks!

Anthony Michael Hall at the Oscars

It was very cool to see Anthony Michael Hall up on stage for the John Hughes tribute at the Oscars. Very cool guy. I photographed him a couple years ago with his mom and sister for article on the family.

Here is 1 shot, but you can see more in the original post at the link below with his mom, jazz singer Mercedes Hall; and his sister, singer Mary C.

The Models of Project Runway by Michael Creagh

I just caught an episode of Project Runway and I just realized I photographed loads of models from past seasons. I guess I never realized, but I just looked on Wikipedia and see loads of names. I am listing some of them below (and with photos). Many of the names sound familiar, but I cannot remember if I photographed them or just saw them at castings. All the photos here are from my shoots with models.

From Season 1, I photographed Olga, Audrey and I think I photographed Josiane years ago, but I cannot track down the image.:

Olga Kononova (Click photo to see a link to past editorials with the image larger)


Audrey Chihocky (Click photo to see a recent post on Audrey in Jan)


From Season 2, I photographed Rebecca Holiday and Rachel Hartzog

From Season 3, I photographed Camila Barungi and Amanda Fields, but I cannot track down the shots on Amanda as it was many years ago.

Camila Barungi


From Season 5, I photographed Alex Arace twice and Polina F (I wouldn't even know where to start looking for those shots).
