Better late then never is our motto for blogging these days! This was one of our favorite weddings of last summer! Those girls at Bash Please out do themselves every time and it is always an honor to shoot one of the weddings they design. Not to mention the rad couple!! We couldn't have asked for a better day to capture!

The pier at Manhattan Beach is always our favorite! These two were great and we wish them all the best on their wedding in Canada this year. Mix of film and digital
It was such an honor to fly out to Honolulu to shoot this beautiful and elegant wedding of one of the sweetest couples! There is no "Hawaii" in this wedding but just being surrounded by sun and beach while shooting was amazing!
Yes! That is Erin below helping the guys tie their bow ties. :) Mix of digital and film.
Still trying to catch up on the blogging! Here is another one of our favorite weddings we shot in late 2011. A gorgeous all indoor affaire filled with so much joy! Love these two! Featured on Style Me Pretty here.
I hope everyone is enjoying their first few weeks of 2013. We are planning BIG things over here at EHC to streamline our life and work and to produce our best work yet! Hopefully all of readers and clients will agree! :) Here is another of our favs from 2011! Nicole and Andrews wedding was so much fun and a prime example of how planning the ceremony around sunset leads to such beautiful light for portraits after. :) Plus how rad is the empty barn for the first look??
The wedding was featured on 100layercake last March the day before our little Avi's birthday. :) Boy, does time fly! Mix of Film and Digital
One of our absolute favorites from 2011. We were laughing the whole time with these two just like at their engagement session. The wedding was beautiful and fun perfect for Palm Springs. We went on to follow them to the after party at the local biker bar... lets just say it got a little wild :) Erin drinking a beer and shooting :) I just love this pic of Molly's dad laughing in disbelief over all the shenanigans. :)

We just loved this amazing wedding at Saddlerock this past October that I had to show a few of the film shots we got back! So much to share....
Just a few from claire and mike's upstate NY wedding. This photo above is one of my favorite photos. I just love all the veil bunched up! :)
First two photos Digital MKlll. Rest are film Kodak Portra 400 shot on the Hassie H2, except last photos Kodak 800 shot on the Yashica twin lens.
Part two of this beautiful weekend took place at South Coast Winery in Temecula. It was a gorgeous day for shooting, and with all the amazing details the wedding was a blast. I just loved all the different bridesmaid dresses and vintage touches. Thanks to Style Me Pretty for the feature.

Remember this cute couples NOLA's engagement session ? Well, here is their sweet wedding FINALLY!! Laura and Will got married a year ago now (better late then never blogging it! ) and had two beautifully sweet ceremonies! The first was a intimate church ceremony with a lovely champagne reception at a cool bar in Temecula. Part 2 will feature the gorgeous outdoor wedding the next day! Enjoy both!

Three more weeks of Avi Polaroids. It is interesting as I shot mostly the newest Impossible Project films a few weeks ago and this past week have shot mostly expired Polaroid 600 film. Both have their pluses and minuses, but both are still great. The old 600 film is starting to loose contrast and have a warm tone as the film ages beyond it expiration date while the newest Impossible Project films are showing great color and contrast. Add to the fact that you don't have to be as diligent in shielding them from light, the newest Impossible Project films really have taken the torch in instant analog photography. That being said, it is nice to be able to visit the old friend that was once Polaroid 600.
Week 29 SX-70 camera and Impossible Project PX680 Color Protection film.
Week 30 SX-70 with Impossible Project films: PX70 Cool, PX680 Color Protection, PX70 Color Protection, PX100UV+ (with a red 25 filter)
Week 31 SX-70 with Impossible Project PX70 Cool (cloud shot with a Polarizer filter) and Polaroid 600.
Okay, so... back to finishing up blogging our 2011 weddings!!! Christina and Jason had a gorgeous two day affair, first a small and sweet private catholic ceremony at the Mission Santa Ines in Solvang, then a beautiful outdoor wedding the next day at Barcara Resort in Santa Barbara. Since it was during spanish days in Santa barbara, we gathered the confetti filled eggs and had a little fun!! Thank you to Style Me Pretty for the feature of this wedding! :)

We love how when we are helping our clients out with their photo timelines (mainly for lighting sake) and working through the complicated timing of the day, wonderful situations occur. This was just that. As we trying to time the couples portraits, details of the reception space, and a 25 minute ride up the mountain in the weeks leading up to the wedding day, we finally came up with a plan that worked. Unintentionally when the day came, meryl and jon were able to great their guests at the top of the hill and it all worked out more perfect then we could have written in the timeline. Happy accidents at weddings are the best and most memorable parts of the wedding day. It was such a fun day! Of course I had to post a pic of her amazing shoes!
So much more of this awesome wedding to come...
