Kristina, thank you both so much for your time and consideration over the phone just now. It's evident to me that you aren't looking for another cookie cutter wedding experience, you are looking for something more personal, a day to connect with your loved ones and celebrate your commitment to Alex. This is important to you two and I can't wait to be there for it all and be peacefully present.
Artifacts are important to me. I have spent the better part of 20 years collecting them for our clients and it would be an absolute honor to be trusted with documenting your day. I look forward to seeing you two commit forever together and dance the night away with your loved ones.
Our good friends Preston & Dana just got married at the Botanic Gardens a few weeks ago and requested I shoot a few rolls of film and try to be a guest NOT a photographer. I failed miserably at shooting just a few rolls and burned through 27 rolls. I really embraced the guest part though. It was so incredible spending a day with all my friends. I thought you would get a kick out of seeing an all film day. Click the photo below to see their gallery.
Super 8mm is one of my favorite mediums. I love its versatility and the ease with which I can tell the story of your day. Nothing conjures up a memory like reliving it through the magic of moving pictures. I don't know quite what it is, maybe it is the imperfect nature of the tiny film, the little scratches and spots of dust flying by the screen, or the shakiness, whatever it is I find it captivating and hope you will too. I always shoot every event with 2 or 3 cameras, substituting one out for a Super 8 works seamlessly with my workflow. If you've been on the fence about hiring a videographer and just haven't liked what you've seen, or you aren't sure if you want 4 more cameras at the wedding, perhaps something a little less tech and more feel is what you need.
Let's get together for a little photo adventure. From there we can talk through family photo shot lists and go over any special traditions or moments you might be thinking about.
Feel free to give me a call, text or email with any questions or to set up a time to visit. I can't wait to hear your stories.
