Looking Back, Looking Forward

Posted on Apr 3, 2021 in photography | 0 comments

Eleven years ago this March, I founded Nostalgia Film, filing my business license and traveling to L.A. for a Super 8mm film boot camp. Those 11 years since have been filled with meeting wonderful couples whom I’ve cherished my time getting to know and create wedding films for them.

In 2016, I met my husband, a talented photographer, and he joined me in film and photography work. We are grateful for the trust that was placed in us and Nostalgia Film to capture once-in-a-lifetime moments and memories while expressing our creativity and collaborating on unique films and photographs that have hopefully stood the test of time.

Then 2020 hit. With the pandemic, the wedding industry was in a tailspin, and I happened to take full-time communication work at about the same time. The result — although unplanned — ended up being a hiatus from taking on new videography and photography work.

As we begin to see the light of hope that the worst of this pandemic is behind us, we’re still deciding how the future of Nostalgia Film will unfold. Thank you for supporting us as we enter this next chapter.

Jessica and Jacob got ready for their day in downtown Austin at the luxe Hotel Van Zandt. From there, it was on to 7Co in East Austin, where they had a gorgeous and sweet wedding day. We worked alongside photographer Rob August to capture their wedding day and with great vendors such as Byrne Rock, an awesome Austin wedding DJ.

I’ve known Jessica for a while, and it was a treat to see her get married–Jessica and Jacob are obviously such a great fit for each other. In editing their wedding highlight film, I cut back and forth from their ceremony to the rest of their wedding day–you can see how touching their ceremony was below and how stylish and fun their wedding was.

All the best Jessica & Jacob! We are so happy for you.

Three Tips for Hiring Austin Wedding Transportation

Posted on Jul 22, 2018 in Elopments - Austin & Central Texas, wedding planning, wedding pros, wedding tips, wedding trends, weddings | Comments Off on Three Tips for Hiring Austin Wedding Transportation

If you are newly engaged–congratulations!–and welcome to the process of wedding planning. While wedding planning is often painted as being chaotic and stressful, it doesn’t have to be that way with guidance from professionals and a bit of organization along the way. Here are some tips to keep in mind as you’re cruising the web and looking for the best transportation provider for your Austin wedding. If you keep this information in mind, you’ll be able to clearly determine which service will work best for your wedding.

Consider the needs of your guests

This is always a wise thing to do when you’re wedding planning! Your guests have likely made a lot of preparations to attend your wedding. They have probably had to take time off of work, arrange supervision for children or pets, along with getting you a gift and possibly traveling to you. This is why it’s a good idea to arrange a shuttle for guests, specifically ones that are coming in from out of town. They might not be totally familiar with the area, and this can save them from spending extra money on a rental car. Plus, you will know that they will get back to their hotel safely after indulging in drinks at the reception.

Do your due diligence when researching

It’s important to take all things into consideration when you’re looking for a transportation solution at your wedding. You don’t want to hire a company that isn’t experienced with this type of event! Be sure to look over their website carefully, and ensure everything is easily accessible. They should have a modern website and clear communication when you try to get in touch. If they fall short on any of these points, you might want to move on to the next possible company.

Go above and beyond with interviews

You might think that it’s enough to simply call and talk to transportation companies, but it isn’t! When you’re interested in a particular company or vehicle, ask if you are able to come to view it. This ensures that the company owns their Austin Limo Bus rather than acting as a booking agent for other companies. Plus, you will feel a lot better knowing what will show up on your wedding day. There are a lot of instances of couples being on the receiving end of a dirty vehicle, one that has mechanical issues, or one that doesn’t show up at all!
