Still shooting Polaroids

If you have been a follower of our work for the past year or so, you'll know that Courtney and I have a 16 month old daughter, Avellana. Over the course of the first year of our daughter's life, I embarked on a photo a day project where I took at least one polaroid a day of Avi. It was quite a project and I ended up taking over 700 polaroids over the course of a year. You can see the final post of the project here. While I am no longer taking a Polaroid a day of Avellana, old habits are hard to break and I am still documenting her life in instant film. Here's another four months worth of Polaroids showing how fast our little girl is growing (with a few cats and landscape shots too).

Avi: Months 13-16

All images taken with various folding SX-70 cameras and instant films by The Impossible Project and old stock Polaroid.

Jessica + Jake {Ojai wedding}

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!

Mix of film and digital: Hassie, Mk111, Kodak

Meryl + Jon {the wedding}

LOVED this one!! Beautiful setting, crazy in love happy couple, and gorgeous details! It was almost to simple to shoot! :) Thank you to Green Wedding shoes for featuring it here!

The best first look ever! 

I just love how they greeted their guests at the reception!! So fun!

Allie + Sean {the wedding}

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.

Nicole and Andrew {the wedding}

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

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. :)

Laura + Will { the wedding part two}

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.
