Posted on May 25, 2016 in About Us, featured, Nostalgia Film, press | Comments Off on Nostalgia Film Receives 2016 Austin Award

AUSTIN May 18, 2016 — Nostalgia Film has been selected for the 2016 Austin Award in the Personal Services category by the Austin Award Program.

Each year, the Austin Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Austin area a great place to live, work and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2016 Austin Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Austin Award Program and data provided by third parties.

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!

Happy Father’s Day from Nostalgia Film: Family Super 8mm Film

Posted on Jun 15, 2014 in About Us, filmmaking, general, Nostalgia Film, super 8 | Comments Off on Happy Father’s Day from Nostalgia Film: Family Super 8mm Film

I sneakily edited this when Michael didn’t know, so I could surprise him with a viewing for his first Father’s Day!

It features our daughter Zora’s first Christmas at home (at just a month old!), Easter at Whirlaway Farm & Garden (see if you can’t spy Natasha of EcoChic Floral!) as well as Zora’s first visit to where we got married, during the annual party at Casa Rio de Colores!

We wish all you new dads and dads-to-be in the Nostalgia Film family a very, very wonderful Father’s Day!

Shot on Kodak stocks (B&W Tri-X and 100D) with vintage Canon cameras. Music licensed via The Music Bed.

Merry Christmas from Nostalgia Film!

Posted on Dec 25, 2013 in About Us, general, Nostalgia Film | Comments Off on Merry Christmas from Nostalgia Film!

We at Nostalgia Film want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!

We are so grateful to the couples we’ve gotten to work with in 2013! Thank you to each and every one of you for trusting us with your memories! We’re busy like elves in our workshop, finishing up our Fall 2013 wedding highlights and packages and can’t wait to share them! Thank you for your well wishes and patience as we wind the year up with the birth of our brand new baby girl, Zora! She turned one month old yesterday on Christmas Eve. It’s hard to believe it’s been a month–what a month it’s been!

Also, much gratitude to all of our dear friends who’ve brought us food, gifts for Z, and checked in on us, including our wonderful wedding pro friends (Heather Curiel of Heather Curiel Photography, Natasha Harper-Madison of EcoChic Floral, Kelly Nichols Rucker of Kelly Rucker Photography, and Leah Polkowske Dunham of Elle Studios).

We hope you have a warm and wonderful holiday season with your family. See you in 2014!
