OUR BACKGROUND
With a degree from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Tim started in photojournalism, and worked as a newspaper and sports photographer in Cooperstown, NY before starting Camera Famosa. Tim has 15 years of professional photography experience, and he has developed into a creative and versatile photographer. His unique attention to detail and his exceptional eye are reflected in the warmth and sincerity in his photographs. Tim edits all of the photographs from Camera Famosa. On a day to day basis, Tim can most often be found at his desk working on a recent photo shoot, or e-mailing or talking with clients. If he's not at his desk, you might find him taking a quick break in the garden or walking our dog, Mabel.

What does Tim love most about photography? As Tim told Allison the first time he met her, he feels lucky to have found a career that he can feel passionate about. Tim is a quiet fellow, but his observational and photographic skills allows him to capture the essence of a moment.

Allison, his wife, helped Tim to start Camera Famosa Photography in 2009. She acts as a second photographer at weddings and helps to coordinate the day. She also comes along as a second photographer during portrait sessions, and assists with posing. As she is often told, she makes brides and grooms feel really comfortable on their wedding day because she is professional, helpful, and just so darn organized! She also works behind the scenes at Camera Famosa. She is the main designer of our website and creates all of our blog posts and updates on social media.

What does Allison love most about photography? Allison has a background in art and history, and she is especially fascinated with social history. Wedding and portrait photography provide the opportunity to work with all kinds of people, and witness all kinds of unique cultures. She loves the distinct and wonderful, and seeks out the details that make each event, day or moment unique.
OUR BUSINESS
We provide a blend of fine art, traditional, and documentary photography. We edit our photos in a classic style that showcase natural light, color, and you!

Our 500 square foot studio is located in Schuylerville, NY, just minutes from the center of Saratoga, and 18 steps from our house. We're also willing to travel far and wide to meet your needs. While we most often shoot locally in Saratoga Springs, Albany, or Lake George, we've also shot on location in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Central NY. Although we're mainly available by appointment, we're often around the house, garden or studio. Feel free to give us a call to set up a meeting.

Camera Famosa is committed to sustainability. We have a large garden that provides much of our produce, a few beehives, and a small flock of chickens that roam our land. Allison recently wrote a book titled Companion Planting for the Kitchen Gardener, and Tim provided the photography. Read less

My husband and I recently got married and it took us very little time to decide on a photographer. I had seen previous work by Camera Famosa and knew that they had to be the ones photographing our special day. Tim and Allison of Camera Famosa have created such a fabulous business. The pictures we received were breathtaking and arrived so much faster than I had ever anticipated. Tim and Allison make you feel so comfortable and will help guide you to ensure your pictures turn out beautiful. We would strongly recommend Camera Famosa to everyone!

We chose Tim and Allison at Camera Famosa for our wedding last August in Lake Placid, NY. As we were living in Maryland, we had to prepare everything long distance. After endless searching for a photographer, we found Camera Famosa. After one conversation on the phone with Tim, we knew he had to be our photographer. Not only was he incredibly professional and flexible with meeting our needs, he was kind and wonderful to speak with. I felt immediately at ease when speaking to him and he allowed me to ask endless questions to understand exactly what would happen. As we were unable to drive up to meet with Tim and Allison before the wedding, we spoke by FaceTime. They were so organized and professional, helping us come up with a timeline and going over every detail. We entered into this relationship knowing we had the best photographers to work with, and on the day of our wedding, that became even more true. They floated soundlessly between locations, guiding photos here and there, but allowing our day to flow naturally. I felt incredibly comfortable with them around and knew they were keeping track of all of our photos. When great photo opportunities presented themselves, such as an unexpected beautiful sunset, they would quickly grab us and then let us return to the party. Towards the end of our evening, they even joined us on the dance floor! I cannot say enough about how amazing it was to have these two wonderful people photograph our day. They made us feel calm and comfortable. And the icing on the cake, our pictures are absolutely gorgeous!

We first met Tim and Allison when they took our engagement photos and the experience was playful, full of laughter, and an adventure in its own right. We brought to the table a bunch of unconventional ideas for shots and they executed them all with flair and openness.

We loved the pics and used them in our wedding mailings to great effect. When we called Tim to let him know we were not going to be getting married in New York, it was with great sadness because we wanted to keep working together...and to our amazement, he and Allison were willing to make the journey ACROSS THE COUNTRY to shoot our wedding in Los Angeles! It was a dream come true. They were willing to go all out for us.

Throughout our correspondences they were prompt, professional, and accommodating. During the wedding they followed our vision and were never intrusive or distracting. We had a ton of chatty wedding party members to wrangle as well, and they got everyone onboard the picture-train with ease.

They don't pose you very much in the traditional sense, they're real strength (and what we wanted most) is capturing the energy between people candidly.

Once you speak with them, you'll get a sense of their style. They're warm, lovely artists and they bring that ease and warmth to their sessions. We can't recommend them highly enough!

Tim and Allison were amazing! As the groom, I originally thought the need for a professional photographer was overrated. Then we had our first meeting with Tim and Allison and my mind was changed. We did our engagement shoot on the coldest day of the year and they didn't complain once nor were they short on ideas. They were extremely communicative leading up to the wedding and even had a Skype meeting with us the week prior to get everything in order.

The day of the wedding went smoother than we had hoped. Tim and Allison were extremely prepared and fully focused on our day. Despite never being to our venue, they knew where we should take pictures and who should be where. We felt so comfortable working with them, it felt like they were part of the wedding. There were times it didn't even feel like they were around, but after looking at the finished photos, they were everywhere!

I couldn't have been happier with our decision to go with Camera Famosa for our wedding day. Not only would I recommend them to friends for their wedding, I would recommend them to do any photo shoot for a friend.

I suspect our wedding day isn't the last time we will work with Tim and Allison. I fully plan on reaching out for whatever occasion we need a professional photographer next!

We could not be any happier with our engagement and wedding photos and it is all because of Tim and Allison at Camera Famosa. We enjoyed working with them from the beginning to the end. They are extremely friendly, personal, professional, motivated, competent and honest. I can not say enough positive things about them and would recommend them anyone! We will definitely use Camera Famosa for future events and photo shoots.

I had a great experience working with Camera Famosa. Tim was extremely flexible. We were on a tight budget, and he was able to provide me with some options outside his standard packages. Also, he spent a lot of time with me prior to the event to make sure he knew our expectations. We had to make some last minute changes, and he was very adaptable.
The day of the wedding he was extremely helpful. We were running late and everything was a little disorganized, and he was able to give direction. It was probably outside of the scope of his role. However, he was willing to give advice and help everyone who had questions.
I have been totally impressed with Tim, and can't say enough good things about him. If you are looking for a photographer, I would definitely hire Camera Famosa.
