Melissa and Jeff's Christmas Engagement Session

Happy Happy Holidays to you!

I’m wrapping, wrapping, and wrapping. Wrapping up some editing, wrapping presents, and wrapping my head around how I never shared photos from Melissa and Jeff’s engagement session in Maplewood?

The village of Maplewood turns into a charming Christmas village for the holidays, and we were lucky enough to have some snow for our session too. I shot this using both digital and 35mm film. Looking back at these makes me want to wrap up with some carols, a fireplace on the TV and some hot cocoa… but a las, I have a long night of work ahead.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas if you celebrate & Happy Holidays! I hope you have a restful, peaceful end to 2018.

Moment in Color Film No. 4 | Contax 645

Sigh! The one that got away.

The Contax 645 that is.

When I purchased the 645 I had other medium format film cameras in my collection, including the Mamiya rz67 pro II, the Pentax 67 and the Hasselblad 500c. I admittedly bit off more than I could chew and didn’t really dedicate the time to learn my way around the Contax. So I played with it for a little bit and quickly sold it.

What a regret!

Below, my favorite Contax 645 images from a birthday shoot.

So nice to reminisce with these! If you’re new around here, I shoot both digital and film. Check out the categories Moment on BW film and Moment in Color Film to see more.

Christina and Brian at The Ryland Inn | Winter Wedding

I’ve been working and re-working my journal so often that some posts seem to have been lost in the fray. I really wanted to give Brian and Christina’s wedding it’s due and place back on the blog! What a gorgeous winter wedding at the Ryland Inn, with an emotional first father-daughter look to boot.
