I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Film on a Friday - Mandy and Tony's Wedding!

We went to Mandy and Tony's wedding as guests, not photographers, so I knew I didn't want to bring my big honking DSLR and get in the way of the 'real' photographers of the day. But I always do want to take pictures. It's my compulsion.

So I brought the film camera and a couple of rolls of film, and it was so fun! Have I mentioned yet how much fun film is? No? Well, maybe you haven't been listening.

Also, I love the highlights. Digital highlights just suck in comparison. There's no other way to describe it. On film, highlights are like buttah. Digital? Not so much. More like margarine.

(If you have strong feelings about butter versus margarine, please do not weigh in in the comments. If you have strong feelings about film versus digital, please do.)

Everyone has to take a photo of the wedding kiss. It's like some sort of rule or something.

Another rule is that I have to take as many photos as possible of Evan. When he sees them later, he will say, "why did you choose such a funny looking guy to be with?"

But I think he's pretty cute.

Champagne! I think this is self explanatory.

Also, first dance. Another rule. (At our wedding, I could not wait for the first dance to be over. So much so that we ended up inviting everyone onto the dance floor after only half the song. Mandy and Tony handled it with much more aplomb.)


And more cigars. Fire and smoke are fun in pictures.

The guys, looking way more dapper than I've ever seen them before.

Ummm, yes. More smoke.

Some party games. This one was really fun. Except that I sucked at it. But Evan said it was fun for him. I think that's because he always won.

And a gray mustache that made the rounds.

A photo of us! Together! Awesome!

And, that's it!
