This year I’ve been pushing myself as an artist in several ways. The biggest one being I have begun incorporating medium format film into my professional work {and for those of you that follow this blog,  you’ve been in the know!} Many friends and clients {who most always become friends} have been asking me WHY? Why change something that isn’t broken? I even get much good-natured ribbing from my friend Art- who processes all my film at Foto Factory in Littleton. The real reason is that I want to SLOOOOOOOW down. If you know me..I’m a million-bagillion-miles-per-hour-all-the-time. But, when I hold my heavy Contax645 in my hands- it just seems like time stands still for a second or two longer. I take in the entire scene before I click the shutter- and I feel like my digital and film images are stronger because of it. Which, is exactly why I started shooting film again in the first place- to make myself a better photographer.

My dear friend, Sandra, of Studio SMC – invited me to 2nd shoot a lovely wedding with her this summer. It was a rare weekend that I didn’t have a wedding scheduled- and I jumped at the chance. I had never 2nd shot before, but I knew that it would allow me the freedom to push myself creatively & to shoot more film without the pressure of being the primary shooter. It was such a beautiful day, and I enjoyed every minute of it. It was refreshing to just blend behind the scenes and just do my thing! I did take many digital shots for Studio SMC– but I also managed to shoot a couple rolls of Kodak Porta 400. All of these shots were from my Contax.

The reception was  held at the beautiful Florence Griswold Musesum in Connecticut…what an adorable place!

A super groovy guest, shooting on her old school polaroid…her images were super rad!

As a nod to the bride’s Texas home – guests were each given little succulent favors.

Dinner was the BIG GREEN TRUCK PIZZA. Whoa. Perfect for a laid back, summer evening wedding!
