Southampton Wedding Photography :: Emily and John

Film portraits wedding

This wedding was so beautiful. I knew it would be. From the moment we got the news that Em and John had gotten engaged, I couldn’t picture anything but a spectacular day for them. From what I knew and had heard about Emily, she doesn’t do anything half fast. So when she wrote to me, asking if I might possibly photograph it for them, I was thrilled (almost like being asked to shoot the royal wedding thrilled). When these two came out for our wedding in January they spent the whole week up on the mountain with us. I was a bit worried that Emily might change her mind about wanting me to photograph their wedding, because well, I didn’t exactly have my “I’m A Professional” hat on that week (not that I ever really do). But I got to know her and John so much more that week, and luckily nobody changed their mind 🙂

The day did not disappoint. E&J are the perfect combination of being incredibly creative, and very organized. They had planned everything out perfectly, and even got the weather to cooperate. One of my favorite parts of the day was the Ceilidh band that lead everyone in the barn dancing. It was incredibly lively and got everyone out on the dance floor.

I shot with both digital and film for this day (4 cameras), and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help of my husband. He did everything from helping find locations, carrying cameras, switching out film, and being a second shooter. I love shooting film, but it definitely takes more time and work, and requires another pair of hands. I was so thankful he was there so I could “have it all” and get the shots I wanted.

Here’s Emily and John, as husband and wife ::

Essential for every English wedding, I would imagine.

Last minute fixings.

I love what my Holga captured that day.

It was amazing. Thanks Em and John for making us a part of it all.

And thanks to Eliot, some of the images above are his.

Southampton Engagement Photography :: A Proposal
Happy Friday! One week from today and I will be on my way to Europe for 4 months. Today is also the last shoot I'm doing before leaving. It happens to be my favorite kind too. Can you guess? Definitely ending things on a high note. This is a proposal I shot a few weeks back for a friend of mine. Proposal turned mini e-sesh. It was a complete surprise and I was posing like I was just taking a photo of the sunset. Very fun to be a part of. Here is Andrew and Hannah ::

Summertime :: On Film
It's been a week since we got back from our holiday in England. My husband was away from home for 2 months. I took these photos before he left. We had such a lovely time in England, which is a separate post completely, but part of me was really looking forward to getting back home, to our home. Tea on our porch. Constant smell of sunscreen. Sipping cold beers on the boat. Playing in the sand. Thinking there isn't enough wind to sail, but going anyways. This is what summer looks like in our home in Florida. And although the heat and humidity are intense, somehow we find ways to enjoy it all. Zoë :: Double Exposure ...

Southampton Boudoir Photographer :: PX70
Working on editing the digital part of this shoot, but thought I would share the instant shots I got using Impossible Project PX70 Color Protection and B&W film packs. Also excited to be using the new VSCO film pack for editing the digital files, which now has over 115 film emulations which are inspired by Polaroid, Fuji and The Impossible Project. This girl's world just got a little bit cooler.
