Super 8 video is a format that has always intrigued me. It’s beauty and rawness gives me the same tingle of excitement as Polaroid. However the sad thing is that it seems like this beautiful art form that is, like Polaroid, slowly dying out. But rejoice! London based company Reel 60 are taking steps towards changing that. Their super 8 short films are touching, inspirational and retro in it’s purest form.
OK, maybe I’m guilty of rambling a bit here, but I am just a little bit over-excited to share a couple of their videos with you. Maybe a lot of you won’t have seen any Super 8 movies before…and you really should you know!
First up a short and sweet little promo video…
Just one more for today I think, lets end the day with some sexy, retro glamour shall we? Boudoir shoots are flirty, fun, sexy, confidence-building and a fabulous gift to your hubby-to-be (and yourself for that matter!) so if you’ve been thinking about it then I say go for it!
See you tomorrow you gorgeous people

A junkyard, a vintage shop, awesome outfits, the longest legs in the world (probably)…what more could you ask for? I want to be this couple…who would have thought you could have so much glamour in one engagement shoot? Also the escalator shot reminded me of our engagement shoot too and that made me happy :o) clicky & clicky!
Thanks Jen, you are actually Rock Stars right? Oh and please can I have your legs!?

Remember these wonderful monochrome Bridals by Sarah Austin? Well Sarah has just sent me the wedding pictures. Hurrah! Chad and Valerie’s wedding took place in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The Ceremony was only 5 minutes long, and they kept it personal by only having about 80 guests of friends and family. They gave every guest a bottle of tequila as their party favor (I personally can’t stand tequila – bad experience as a 14 year old!) but I am loving the idea of alcoholic favours to get the party started!

I’m sure you remember Heather & Lucus’ fabulous vintage pin up stylee engagements? Well even if you don’t I know you’re going to love their wedding photographs! I am so honoured that Heather has send me these straight away and I am so excited to share these with you.
Heather describes their day:
The ceremony and reception was held at Squatters Brewery here in Salt Lake. We had a short, 6 minute ceremony that was funny and fit our personalities well. Our Australian friend got ordained and married us. My Dad wore a flamed hot rod tie to walk me down the isle in. I illustrated the two of us for a custom shot glass that was given to anyone that ordered a shot. We had an elaborate retro dessert table with my homemade cupcakes. (I am a self-proclaimed obsessed baker)
There was a retro photobooth for everyone to use, swing dancing, a themed ‘wedding cake’ shot that tasted like vanilla cake, and a cupcake tower. We also had our artist friends do illustrations of us, and framed them for display in the entry area. (I’ve included my favorite one in the folder) – By JJ Harrison of www.bampop.com
My dress was a Pronovias gown that I bought on ebay for $300. Then I had it trimmed shorter, and had a jacket made to match it, by a girl on Etsy.com.
Thanks Heather, I am in love with your wedding!
