I am a mama to 3 rad little boys, Finn, Grey, and North. They are crazy, so much fun, but it is not a great idea to bring out any expensive camera gear around them. Just don't do it! As a film photographer, it bugs me that most of the pictures of my little beasties are on my phone. But since a Holga camera is literally a toy, it can stand up to the craziness of our adventures really well. Bonus points for being small enough to fit in my purse! I love the messy, dreamy, colorful shots I get with it and have started shooting a roll or two with it at my weddings. Cause if it can survive my kids, it can DEFINITELY survive a wedding day. ;)
Completely themselves. Rule breakers. So so kind. Veterinarian power couple. Adventurous. That is Jordi and Steven. They had a crazy fun, but natural and beautiful wedding. From their favorite farm as the venue, to a bouquet of dried flowers, to chopping the train off her rad Rue de Seine gown, Jordi and Steven went their own way. And on your own wedding day, that is ALWAYS the perfect way to go.
Soooo this will probably come as a shock to none of you, but I'm not a big fan of props in pictures. The idea that you need stuff to make a picture of you more interesting? Totally wrong. BUT bringing things that are truly meaningful to you and remind you of some of your best times? That I can get behind.
Christina and Duncan wanted anniversary photos at their favorite spot from when they were dating, him playing her a song while they cuddled in the back of her grandpa's old pickup truck. A little bit country, a lot a bit romantic, and all them.
It's always so great to get to know a couple through their wedding process; the meetings, emails, phone calls. I try to figure out each of their personalities, how they relate to each other, and think through the best way to photograph them. But on their wedding day, there is always this new joy and love that is completely unique to each couple.
I know Kirby from church and to see the way he looks at Muriel and the way she smiles at him left me a bit in awe. They love each other so fully, without anything holding them back. However it's expressed, true love is mind-blowingly beautiful.
