It is easy to find a reason to shoot Super 8 at some of life’s bigger events like weddings or the birth of a child. But Teryn & Steve have shown us that the medium can have a simple purpose, like a holiday greeting. They shot this short in their apartment with a small tree & some white lights, and a little creativity. We find so much beauty and charm in this little film. Let us know if we can help you produce something short but certainly sweet for a friend or a loved one.

My family had the privilege of working our second summer at Camp Spofford in New Hampshire. I ran the camp’s dining hall service for guests. This time was incredibly refreshing and life-giving. I feel blessed to be able to spend my summer days with family. This summer we chose to spend the majority of our time-off exploring the beauty of New England. This summer we ventured off to Newfound Lake (NH), York Beach (Maine), Lake Willoughby (VT), and of course, countless hours at our own Lake Spofford (NH). Below are a few photos of our 8 week adventure in New England.

Jeanne & Scott chose to get married at High Hampton Inn in Cashiers North Carolina. Jeanne spent her summers at High Hampton as a kid and felt it would the perfect setting for their wedding celebration. I loved the laid back nature of the entire day, including the time Jeanne’s son got to spend with her before the wedding. Enjoy some of my favorite images from the day.
This past summer, Lindsey & I went camping with our friends, Jordan & Audrey Mahy, to celebrate the beautiful weather. Camping was a big part of my childhood, and I wanted to bring the Super 8 camera along with us to capture the fun of being around friends and family. I love the silliness (Jordan and I setting up the tent, swimming, putting Penny on our shoulders) and the serenity (morning light, beautiful lake, lying in the hammock) that this film depicts.
I can’t recommend enough setting aside unique moments in life to document in a different way. I’m thankful to work at a place that encourages this kind of creativity and intentionality. Enjoy!
