Polaroids at Neltner Farm

I have been bringing Polaroid cameras to weddings over the past 6 years.  I would sneak in a couple of photos to satisfy my need to make art with the couples I photograph.  I love the spontaneity of instant film and the dreaminess adds such a special feeling that is impossible to replicate.   I say it over and over, each photo is a one of a kind piece of art.  

Last year was the first year I decided to offer Polaroids as an option to my wedding packages.  The response has been overwhelming.  Almost every single wedding I have booked since adding the option wants Polaroids at their wedding.  This makes me so happy.  I get to make art while celebrating love.  

I haven't shared an entire collection of wedding images, so I decided to showcase this very special wedding I photographed earlier this year at one of my favorite venues, Neltner Farm.   Some of this film is 17 years old.  I just love it's very unique charm.  These are from 2 shoots.  A week after the wedding we went back to the farm to experiment more.  Mandy and Landon were so patient and grateful.  I appreciate them giving me so much time to create these.

Here is a little iPhone video I made while creating with Mandy.

Hippy Wedding Love

Last month I had the pleasure of working with a very talented group of people on this 70's inspired  dream shoot.  The idea came from one of the table designs at Love+Bash (the alternative wedding show created by Jen Pritchard and myself).  Because there was so much hard work put into every little detail, we decided to set up a shoot using the ideas and concepts seen at Love+Bash with a few added elements and models.  I used my digital camera, my Holga, and my Polaroid camera to create these vintage inspired photos.  I am very excited to announce we got a huge feature on  Rockn'Roll Bride today!  Be sure to head over there and show some love! :) Thanks Kat!!

Experimenting in the snow

Before this, I had never really done a shoot in the snow.

I wanted to create something dramatic and dreamy.

Jill was beyond amazing to work with.

These are a few I shot with my Polaroid camera using The Impossible Project's Color Shade film for the first time.  I love how creepy cool they turned out.
