Molly + Jake {Palm Springs Horizon Hotel wedding}

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. :)

Mix of Film and Digital.

 

Weeks 35, 36, & 37 of Avi in Instant Film

Another few weeks with our amazing daughter! I have to admit that a few days ago, I was revisiting some older posts, and I couldn't believe how much she has grown. It is so easy to forget how small Avi was when she was first born. I almost miss her in a sense as that little baby is already gone. However, I can't wait to see where she'll go next. Hope you enjoy.

Week 35

 

Week 36

 

Week 37

All images taken with various folding SX-70 cameras using both available light and strobe. Films include Polaroid 600, Impossible Project PX-70 Cool, and one PX-100 UV+ 

A Polaroid summary of things so far...

As my instant film project of Avi continues, I like to combine the 3x3 collages that I do each week from time to time. This allows me not only to see how the project is growing, but to also allow me to look back at these past 8 months and see how much our little girl has grown so far. This represents 315 instant film images.

Avi in Polaroid {Weeks 32, 33, & 34}

Another three weeks of our little Avi in Polaroid (and Impossible Project film)! From her first trip to the pumpkin patch, her first costume (sushi!), a trip to Palm Springs, and the Election, Avi has had a busy few weeks.

Week 32 Films include Polaroid 600 and Impossible Project PX100UV+

Week 33 Polaroid 600, Impossible Project Px70 Cool and Impossible Project PX100UV+

Week 34 Polaroid 600 and Impossible Project PX70 Cool 

 

Weeks 29, 30 & 31 of Avi in Polaroids

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. 

Weeks 25 and 26 of Avi

Two more weeks of Avi and another new film from the Impossible Project. This time using a new blend of their 600 speed color film. It has been pretty cool as one friend put it, "it's fun to see Avi and the film grow up". This newest batch of film (PX680 V4C Test) is really impressive. I hope you enjoy.

Week 25

All images with the Impossible Project's new PX680 test film V4C with the exception of the first image (PX680) 

Week 26 All images using the Impossible Project's PX680 Test film V4C

Jessica + Jake {engagement session}

Such a great session with these two! We always love when our couples want to include their pets. We shot both at their house and at the public gardens down the street from their house. We are really looking forward to their wedding coming next June in Ojai! :)

Amanda + Justin {the wedding}

We just love how casual and sweet this wedding was. They are so in love that everything about the day seemed to just unfold so naturally. It is seriously one of our favorites this year!! I am in love with her bouquet!

Gigi + Grant {smog shoppe wedding}

Love this wedding! Love this couple! Gigi and Grant are super cool and the wedding was just that too. With the fabulous flowers by Brown Paper Design and the awesome planning and coordination of Bash, Please , all of Gigi's creativity came to life and look just beautiful. Gigi also looked so gorgeous thanks to the ladies from Fiore Beauty.   This wedding was so much fun and we are grateful for the feature on Green Wedding Shoes today.
