Zora Alice on Film: Austin Zoo

Posted on Oct 31, 2015 in Nostalgia Film, photography | 0 comments

The Austin Zoo is close to my heart as it’s a rescue and rehabilitation zoo. Zora always enjoys it, noticing new things and new animals every time we go.

This time, I threw a fun little toy camera–my Diana Mini–with the end of a roll of 35mm Lomo film into my bag and grabbed a couple of shots of my wee little one. This time, feeding the deer was her favorite!

Seattle on Film – Diana Mini 35mm Photography

Posted on Oct 29, 2015 in Nostalgia Film, photography, travel | 0 comments

A lot of times when I travel, I like to take a toy plastic camera in addition to my fancy DSLR. It forces to me think on the fly, shoot from the hip, think about composition, and just have fun! In this case, it was the Diana Mini with 400 speed Lomo film. It makes dreamy, lo-fi images, and it’s always kind of an adventure to see what you’re going to get weeks after you’ve returned. I first discovered Lomography and their line of cameras (starting with the awesome Lomo LC-A about 15 or 16 years ago), and I have been hooked since!

Also, while I am on the topic… A Seattle Super 8mm wedding film is totally on my bucket list. So if you are getting married in Seattle and want a Super 8 wedding film, please get in touch!

A beautiful couple in a gorgeous lakeside location led to some truly beautiful Super 8 film. Their wedding day was saturated in color: from Elena’s stunning wedding dress to the rich details of the festivities! This wedding went perfectly thanks to Ren at 36th Street Events, and the party was rocking thanks to Joel at Greenbelt DJ Productions.

Molly and Jaime remind me how much I love filming weddings! Warm, creative, eclectic, fun — their wedding was all of these things! A pair of teachers who met in Bogotá, Columbia, where they live, they hosted an amazing wedding celebration in Molly’s parents’ backyard in Austin, Texas. Filled with color, unique touches, and lots of music (Jaime and his friends are talented musicians!), their day was a joy to capture on a mix of Super 8 film and HD video. See for yourself below! Also check out their team of talented vendors including Yellow Umbrella Events, Erica Gray Beauty, Gypsy Floral, and Lisa Woods Photography (photos from there day, here)

Congratulations Molly & Jaime and ¡Felicitaciones!
