I’ve begun shooting more and more film on my grandfather’s vintage Yashica Mat. It has been so incredibly satisfying to work on a personal project that I’ve turned it into a daily exercise. I am making one portrait each day on film, which I get back as beautiful scans and prints from Richard Photo Lab. You can follow my progress on Instagram. Here are some of the first images:
They braved the winter to celebrate their wedding in Denver in December. There was a cold snap outside, but inside it was warm and cozy. And when Joshua and Lisett did go outdoors, they kept each other warm.
Their family was around them throughout the day, supporting them and celebrating with them. Joshua’s dad lead the ceremony. Lisett’s dad did a reading. Friends had come from all over the country to see these two on the day they began their life together.
Thanks for being wonderful, you two, and for dancing to both “Thriller” and “What Does the Fox Say” at your reception.

I am a boutique wedding studio, so it is not very often that I do a portrait session. I love this session that I did recently on a small road in rural KY.
AB’s mom found her the perfect vintage-style dress the last time they visited California, and we photographed on one of November’s last warm days so AB was happy to kick off her sweet little shoes and go barefoot.
I also took this opportunity to shoot on the vintage Yashica-Mat that belonged to my grandfather when he was a young newspaper photographer in a small New Mexican town. I exposed several frames of color 120 film that I was particularly pleased with. :)
I hope that AB’s grandchildren will hold prints of these images 50 years from now… with even more fondness than I hold my grandfather’s camera.
