Mich and Carla’s Mountain Wedding

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

When Corey and I first arrived to the location of Mich and Carla’s wedding in Hot Springs, NC, my jaw dropped.  I knew that Carla was an artist and that there would be some decorations, but literally every single inch of the ceremony and reception space was covered with beautiful and personal details.  A dessert bar with cupcake recommendations based on Mich or Carla’s taste, an elaborate drink bar covered in mason jars, flavored moon shine, and stripy straws, a s’mores bar, stringed lights and fabric hanging from the trees, and a painted cabinet full of succulents to give out as favors.  But the wedding wasn’t just visually beautiful.  So much love radiated through the entire day, from the emotional ceremony that had everyone in tears (including me, which made taking pictures a little dicey) to the band continuing to play acoustically with everyone huddled together under the tent after a monsoon poured over the entire space.  Everyone was so thrilled to be able to celebrate Mich and Carla and the love that they have for each other.  I could not be happier to have been included in their day.  Congratulations ladies!

These images are a mixture of digital and film.  All film taken on my Mamiya 645 with Fuji 400h.

Julie and Jason

Thursday, September 25, 2014

I met Julie several years ago through my friend Lindsay.  I often wonder if she ever sleeps because she is constantly training for her next triathlon.  But not just any triathlon.  She competes in like World Championship Triathlons.  Ridiculous.  She is training for an Ironman right now and just looking at her Facebook posts about training makes me want to take a nap.  But she is also one of the sweetest, most genuine people you will ever meet.  Ever since I’ve known her, she’s been with Jason.  Julie and Jason are just one of those couples that make it seem easy.  They are so thoughtful around one another and truly seem happy.  When they first got engaged about half a year ago (has it been that long?!), Julie asked me if I would take their engagement pictures.  Obviously, I was honored.  We decided to make a trip to Charleston out of it because really why not.  Lindsay came as well to take care of makeup and hair (so good right?) and Ben and Corey tagged along to make the trip even more fun.  This magical lake/swamp area is actually the location where they got engaged, and also where they filmed that canoe scene in the Notebook.  You know the one.  I was on cloud nine all day long shooting these two lovely people.  Congratulations you two – I just know your lives are going to be amazing.  All images taken on my Mamiya 645 with Fuji 400h and processed and scanned by Photovisions.

Seattle on Film

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Seattle was everything I expected it to be: beautiful, charming, and a bit grey.  We had a ball exploring the city, taking the ferry over to Bainbridge Island (where Corey basically got offered a job and I was confused as to why he didn’t take it immediately), eating all of the food in sight, and attending our cousin Matt’s lovely wedding on Lake Washington.  One of our most memorable experiences was driving up to the Sunrise Visitor Center, which admittedly sounds like a home for the elderly.  On our last day of the trip, Meg, Chris, Corey, my parents, and I crammed into the rental van (with Corey stuffed in the back with the coats) and drove 2 hours from Seattle and up a very large mountain to find ourselves at the most spectacular view of Mount Rainier and the cascades.  We were so high up that my dad, who apparently has a fear of heights that I was completely unaware of, had to stop driving.  We spent a couple of hours hiking around and just being in awe.  You really can’t believe how big it is.  For just a couple of minutes, we were even able to see the peak of Mount Rainier, which is mind blowing.  If you look at the first image below, you can just barely make out the peak.  All of these were shot on my Mamiya 645 with Fuji 400h or Portra 400.
