Happy Accidents.

A polaroid negative from a recent wedding in Punta Mita. Before drying all the way it got wet and sandy due to the hazards of shooting on the beach. The lens cap was closed which allows it to be used as a pinhole camera, but when the polaroid was peeled the negative was extremely dark. Rather than trash it which is what I would have normally done, I decided to keep the negative and scan it because I thought it could look amazing with the texture and negative space in addition to getting some of the detail back. Sometimes it’s a good thing to make mistakes. It opens our minds to new possibilities.

Lisa+Ben | Camden, ME {Wedding}

Lisa and Ben’s wedding in Maine was epic. It’s a long one, but totally worth it to see the Holga photos of the dance party. You can see the rehearsal dinner here. Their wedding was also featured on Snippet & Ink here and here.

For the technically savvy, this wedding was all film all the time save for a few of the night shots. A mixture of Kodak Portra 160 and Kodak Tri-X. The Holga shots are all on Kodak Ektar.

Lisa+Ben | Camden, ME {Rehearsal Dinner}

The best part about having amazing clients is they in turn have amazing friends. Lisa came to me through Erin who got married last year in Charleston, SC in a rainy and completely unique ceremony and who also happens to be a dear friend. This was the first of three weddings I had with Erin this summer all over New England and Lisa and Ben’s started it off in Camden and Rockport, ME. You can see their rehearsal dinner and wedding featured on Snippet & Ink here and here. You can see their full wedding post here.

Jillian - Hi Jen! It’s the wedding and if you follow the Snippet & Ink link you will find all of the info in the feature on their site.

Jen - You photographed a rockabilly wedding with a polkadot dress in Maine. I am trying to find out information on that dress and the designer. Do you have any information about her?

The List Summer/Fall 2013

The List is probably the only well designed travel/tourism magazine that I’ve seen in Mexico. It’s geared toward Riviera Nayarit and the surrounding areas and designed by a local couple who just recently happened to move below me from nearby Sayulita. The summer/fall issue features San Pancho (San Francisco) and along with the usual travel anecdotes about our small little fishing village there were also stories on Entreamigos, Las Bodegas, and Alianza Jaguar. The magazine is available throughout Sayulita, San Pancho, and the Puerto Vallarta area so pick up a copy to browse on the beach. I wanted to keep it short so here’s just a couple spreads, but you can check out The List for more photos.
