Ma Maison Super 8 Wedding Videography: Katie & Jesse

I know when I almost tear up multiple times while editing a highlight film, I’ve struck upon something really special and amazing. Katie & Jesse’s wedding day was just that: a multilingual meeting of two sweet souls — Katie, who’s a Texan, and Jesse, who’s French, met and fell in love in the magical city of Prague. Sounds like the beginning of a fairytale… And their day was a fairytale, from the carefully hand-selected details and the romantic ambiance, to the sentimental moments that tugged on the heartstrings.

Don’t take it from me, just watch the magic unfold, below…

…and much, much more to come in their full-length film!

This day was also made so special by the talented team: Katherine O’Brien, who we always enjoy working with so much when we’re lucky enough; the lovely, well-appointed, and French-inspired new venue, Ma Maison (French for “my house,”), run by the very nice family, the Moises; plus the day run artfully and smoothly thanks to Carmen Bright; featured gorgeous blooms from Petal Pushers; and was deliciously catered by Royal Fig, who developed a European-style fare for the evening.

Bridal Portraits at The Long Center | Austin Wedding Photography

Posted on Jul 28, 2014 in general, Nostalgia Film, photography, wedding photography | 1 comment

I recently had the chance to take part in a fun bridal portrait photography event put on by Precision Camera with at the Long Center and Butler Park. I was able to practice my portrait photography skills–it’s fun to change gear from shooting at 18 or 24 frames per second to sometimes shoot stills! And even better when I get to practice with a beautiful model.

A few of my favorites from the day follow–both digital and film photography (Fujichrome 120 film shot with a Holga).

Many thanks to Precision Camera, model Sophia May, and Holland Photo Imaging for the film processing and scans.

Rocky River Ranch Wedding: Courtney & Mark’s Super 8mm Wedding Trailer

Posted on Jul 25, 2014 in Nostalgia Film, real weddings, super 8, super 8 weddings, wedding videography, wedding videography Austin, wedding videography hill country, wedding videography Texas, weddings | 2 comments

We met Mark and Courtney through our mutual friend, wedding photographer Heather Curiel. They asked us to do something nontraditional for them, and shoot the day in HD so Mark (who owns a motion graphics production company) could later edit their wedding video for them. We had their date open and agreed–why not!? Since we had a couple of half rolls of Super 8mm laying around and a couple cameras to test, we brought them along and shot this little teaser in Super 8mm for the couple!

Nature’s Point Super 8 & HD Wedding Videography: Mimi + Clint

Posted on Jun 30, 2014 in Hybrid HD & Super 8 wedding videography, Nostalgia Film, real weddings, super 8, super 8 weddings, wedding videography, wedding videography Austin, wedding videography hill country, wedding videography Texas, weddings | 0 comments

Mimi and Clint had a beautiful and heartfelt wedding day at Nature’s Point on Lake Travis.  Mimi was stunning in her beaded Jenny Packham dress. Their ceremony was humorous and touching, and I literally got chills from their ceremony musicians, Deric Lewis and The Church Choir, who lead the processional with “Oh Happy Day” and “All You Need is Love” and the recessional with “Happy” by Pharrel Williams with a dancing wedding party! (Not to worry, that will all be showcased in the full-length film.)

The day was also captured beautifully by Diana M. Lott, and it went off without a hitch thanks to Barbara Hearne of Barbara’s Brides.

The reception was quite the party with dancing on a patio over Lake Travis fueled by the sounds of Sauce. And one of the most unique takes of the photo booth/sketch booth trend was The Original Butt Sketch artists working the reception! (More on that to come, too!)

Mimi and Clint’s joy was palpable on their wedding way, and we wish them many, many years wedded bliss!
