Call me masochistic but I love that tortured feeling of anticipation I get from waiting for my film rolls to be processed + scanned. But think about it – these days, we can get everything we want in a snap: we can download songs and books on iTunes; online shop at 11:42pm on a Tuesday night; twitter a question and get instant feedback.

Don’t get me wrong: I love this type of instant gratification. After all, I am of the iGeneration (okay, maybe my 17 year old brother would beg to differ but I like to believe I’m on the cusp!). I suppose it’s because of this constant “instancy” of life that I love being forced to wait and wait and wait for film.

And wait I did. I sent off two rolls of 220 and ten rolls of 120, all shot over the past three months. Some I had even forgotten about, which is the other beautiful thing about film. It’s like rediscovering an old diary from your childhood again. I love that feeling.

These were all shot on my Contax 645. Batches from (in order) adventures at the National Portrait Gallery, getting caffeinated at a local coffee shop, wine-tasting in Canberra (Murrumbateman), getting cultured at The National Gallery of Australia, rocking at Groovin’ The Moo Music Festival, site-seeing in Gerringong NSW, and spending a weekend with friends at Hyams Beach, Jervis Bay (whitest sand in the world!). Random adventures in Pobke-land. 🙂

About a year and a half ago, Mark, a fellow North American transplant photographer living in Canberra, asked me to come along and photograph him and his beautiful girlfriend, Allison. But it wasn’t to be an ordinary couple’s shoot – he was going to propose to her during the middle of it. It was so sweet I cried (while shooting, of course). She said yes, and months later they asked me to be their wedding photographer in Victoria, British Columbia. I too said yes. (Emphatically, of course.) 🙂

Well, their wedding was on Saturday in front of 60 wonderful family and friends. It was quaint and cozy and touching. It was lovely and sweet and happy. Everything that a wedding should be. I felt so lucky to have been the one to come out and photograph their beautiful union, I cried over and over again throughout the ceremony. Lucky for me I had an awesome wingman, Kip Beelman, who did an amazing job capturing so many of the following awesome moments while I was busy dabbing my eyes. 🙂

Thank you, Allie and Mark, for being such a graciously warm + genuinely thoughtful couple. I know I can speak for both myself and Kip when I say it was an absolute an honour to have been there. Happy honeymooning and see you back in the ‘Berra! 🙂

[I need to thank Kip again for just being so frickin’ amazing. Seriously, my friend: You. Rock. Thank you thank you thank you.]

Ah the Kaisers. So much can be said about Nate + Jaclyn + their adorable (as Nate likes to say) “fruit of the loins.” For starters, they are fun. Unimaginably, irrevocably fun. And they are relentlessly energetic and joyous and beautiful and caring with one another, which was so incredible to witness. I wish I could play some sound bites with these shots to allow you to hear the hilarious banter that happens in this house, but alas, I’ll just have to show you with snapshots of what I had the privilege of witnessing.

In case you hadn’t heard of the Kaisers before, they are the creatives behind The Image Is Found, a wedding photography studio based in Oceanside, California. They are an insanely smart duo that constantly think-outside-the-box, and remain two of the most inspiring (and level-headed) people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. But extending beyond the photography world, these are the kind of people you’d want to know and be friends with. You see, from my brief 30 hours spent with them, I learned a few things about life and priorities and art and fear and passion and joy. And anytime a new friend can be in a position to inspire or teach… well, that friend is a friend for life.

My Sleepover Sessions have been magical thus far, and have taught me so much about the human condition and family love and blessings we have in life. And when the Kaisers booked me in for one during my recent stopover to Seattle, I knew they “got” me and understood the philosophy behind why I loved them… because I sincerely love everything about this family. It’s one of those 30 hour moments I’ll never forget.

Meet the Kaisers. They’re fun. 🙂

Photography is the skill or method of producing images of stuff on photosensitive surfaces. Photography has been the best cause of inspiration for designers. Using reflection in the images can give them wonderful effects.
