Last fall, Victor, Zora, 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 Zora. 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 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!
I’ve been taking my film cameras with me everywhere this spring and summer. Here are a couple of my favorite shots from my Texas travels and day trips, shot on 35mm as well as my Holga.
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.
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!
We blogged recently on some of our favorite things in Marfa and some of our digital photography from our recent trip to film a wedding there. We’ve gotten the Super 8mm back from the lab, and it’s so stunning! While I am picking out the perfect song and editing their highlight, I wanted to share some of our still photography from the trip. I bought a new mini Diana that shoots 35mm shortly before we left, as the Lomography store on Congress was closing, and we took along our trusty Holga, too.Read More
