Before the holidays, I participated in a holiday photography trade with some talented local photographers and their families. Local Austin photographer Luba Cain captured these photos of Zora & I, which I will cherish always…

I wish you and your family the happiest of holidays!

Alex & Brandon got married at the stunning Hotel Saint Cecilia in nestled among South Austin oaks, followed by a super fun and unique reception at Brandon’s Eastside bar, Craftsman Bar. This wedding had a lot of beautiful eye candy and a playful spirit. Plus we got to work with The Nichols, which is always such a good time! More forthcoming from this beautiful wedding after the holidays… but for the last film of before the holiday break, I leave you with their Super 8mm wedding film feature…

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!
