In May, we traveled to West Texas for this magical wedding of Holley & Steven at the Gage Hotel and Gage Gardens alongside our friends The Nichols. With the picturesque background of West Texas mountains and scenery, we had a blast capturing their sweet union and fun reception on Super 8 film. Many years of happiness Holley & Steven!

Round Top, Texas – Film Photography

Posted on Mar 14, 2017 in homepage, Nostalgia Film, photography, travel | Comments Off on Round Top, Texas – Film Photography

Last fall, Victor and I traveled to Round Top, Texas, for a day of antique shopping. I took along 35mm film and an analog camera and captured some fun and colorful finds. We spent the morning at Marburger Farm, then the afternoon and evening combing the fields and exploring the tiny town. I scored a vintage garnet ring, a new-to-us ’50s aqua dinette set, and some cowgirl boots for our daughter. The next morning before heading back to Austin, we stopped into Junk Gypsy World Headquarters to look around and gather up some DIY inspiration of our own (as well as snag their book!).

I thought I’d blog it now, since the next antique weekend is coming at the end of March. For those of you in Austin like us, I highly recommend a day trip or weekend getaway!

Kelsey & Austin: Super 8 Videography at The Reserve at Dancing Elk Ranch

Kelsey and Austin got married on a beautiful fall day at the stunning venue, The Reserve at Dancing Elk Ranch, located in Mathis, South Texas. We loved working with Platinum Events, which insured their wedding day was beautiful and executed flawlessly. In between their florals and the bride’s sister’s centerpieces, there was rustic, Southwestern beauty and flair throughout the venue and day. We also enjoyed working alongside Studio Eleven Photography. We filmed their wedding day on Super 8 film and created an heirloom film for them and their family.

Congratulations Kelsey and Austin!

Summertime Film Photography: Port Aransas

Posted on Aug 28, 2016 in photography, portraits, travel | Comments Off on Summertime Film Photography: Port Aransas

As the summer winds to a close (calendar-wise, not weather-wise), and Facebook feeds fill with adorable back-to-school photos, I thought I’d do a post of film photography commemorating our much-too-short summer. I’ve been having fun the last few months taking out the very first camera I learned on — my Pentax K1000. It’s been serving me well on adventures with my little Z. Here are a few from a long weekend in Port Aransas.

Seattle on Film – Diana Mini 35mm Photography

Posted on Oct 29, 2015 in Nostalgia Film, photography, travel | Comments Off on Seattle on Film – Diana Mini 35mm Photography

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!
