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!
About a month ago I had the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. and shoot the wedding of Megan & Hunter. I loved the Southern feel of this wedding and their appreciation of family tradition.
Megan wore an Alfred Angelo dress that her grandmother and mother both wore on their wedding days. Alfred Angelo actually has the dress currently on display for Bridal Fashion Week in New York. Check out this picture of Megan, her sister & mom standing with the display.
A highlight for me is how Megan & Hunter exited the church, the same way her grandmother and mom did, to streamers.
This classic film has quickly become one of my favorites. Enjoy!
This past spring, my wife and I had the pleasure of traveling out to Napa Valley, California to shoot Chea and Liam’s wedding. The weather could not have been more perfect, and the surrounding scenery was jaw-dropping. Chea and Liam have a very classic style and were so sweet to each other all day. I particularly loved the reception where they busted out some flashing neon light sticks and danced the night away. Enjoy the film and the bonus Super 8 Dancing footage below!
Every summer Lindsey and I get the wonderful opportunity to take some time off and travel to some of the most beautiful places in the world. This year we ventured throughout the Canadian Rockies and dipped into Montana to visit Glacier National Park. While there we took the Homemade Films camera with us on the trail and documented our hike, which was a grand total of 14 miles! We had a blast shooting the jaw-dropping scenery, the natural wildlife, and, of course, each other. Although the hike was difficult at times, I’m thankful we took the camera as the payoff was worth every bit of the work.
I’m always honored to document a wedding on Super 8. With Cullen being a member of the film industry, it felt that much more special. Enjoy this sweet and endearing film shot in Charleston at the William-Aiken House.
