We took a quick trip down to Port Aransas on the Texas coast a couple weekends ago. I took along my Holga camera.

Texas Hill Country | The August Break

San Gabriel River

We recently got to spend a weekend with friends out at the cabins where we got married on the San Gabriel River in Liberty Hill, Texas. I had just found a vintage Diana camera (from the  ’60s probably) on eBay, and I took it along to capture some images. There is still a little water in poor drought-stricken Texas as you can see… just a little bit.

Fun Wedding Film Intro: Reservoir Dogs

9 Jun

We lucked out getting to shoot Matt & Liisa’s wedding! They were a perfect match for Nostalgia Film with their creative and fun-loving spirit, and that allowed us to get some really special Super 8  film. While the groom and his groomsmen were doing their photography shoot with the uber-talented Nichols, the groom caught my eye, and asked what I thought about getting a little footage inspired by Reservoir Dogs.

I am a Quentin Tarantino fan–I must have watched an analyzed Pulp Fiction 800 times for one course during film school–so I jumped at the chance! It was one of those spontaneous moments that you couldn’t plan if you tried, and I love the results. When Mike was finishing up editing their full-length film, we just couldn’t let this film sit unfeatured. So we gathered my film and his HD video, and put together the following, after lovingly watching the Reservoir Dogs many times!We added it to the intro of their DVD to surprise the groom.

Let us know what you think in the comments!

Liisa & Matt’s Wedding Super 8 Film

11 May




We were so thrilled that we got to capture Super 8 film and HD video of Liisa and Matt’s wedding.  Such a sweet and fun couple, they hail from Chicago, Illinois, and had their wedding at the gorgeous Star Hill Ranch in the Texas Hill Country. This wedding was full of love and happiness and had such a comfortable and creative vibe. Liisa even letterpressed her own stunning invitations!

As if I didn’t like this couple enough already, during the toasts, I found out Liisa and I share a favorite holiday–Halloween. The couple met at a Halloween party. In the same spirit of fun, the groom and his groomsmen enacted a classic movie scene with me, that you’ll see for yourself above. And this is the only wedding I’ve been to where someone broke out the worm on the dance floor!

Liisa and Matt, we feel so lucky to have been a part of your wedding, and we wish you a lifetime of fun and happiness together!
