Holga Love

I am really feeling the Holga love right now and when I saw these I knew I had to feature them as soon as possible. Shooting a wedding with a toy camera must be a precarious and slightly unnerving job (what if the film doesn’t load? what if the photos turn out badly? what if I loose the film? eeek!) but photographer Daniel Krieger appears to have got his skillZ down and pulled this one off seemingly without a hitch. These images are just making me even more excited about getting my very own piece of plastic joy soon..ahh the light, the texture, the soft focus – swoon!

Daniela & Chris got married at the ridiculously stunning Mohonk Mountain House. Have you ever seen a location so picturesque? Daniela’s beautiful dress is the Fontaine wedding gown from J Crew and she is actually selling it right now on Craigslist. It’s a size 4 and you may well be able to snap it up for yourself (if you’re quick!) you lucky lucky things.

Daniela has also shared a few little tips of her own:
Enjoy every minute and roll with it. The quirks of your wedding are what will make the memories that much better. On our day, it was so cold that the ipod playing the bridal march (dum, dum, da dum) froze (literally!) and the audience had to hum the music. Couldn’t have asked for anything better!!

Thanks so much to the brilliant Daniel Krieger for the photography, and the couple Daniela & Chris for allowing me to share their day.

  1. Gorgeous! I love the unpredictability of a Holga–those toy cameras are just so cool. I secretly hope my wedding photographer decides to use the Diana F+ I just got her to shoot our wedding. 🙂

    Hi, I think this wedding is beautiful. I Love love love the dress, it’s no longer available on craigs list. I do have a question about the Fontaine dress on Daniela …it looks like it has ‘darts’ on the nipple area…not sure if this is part of the dress or if it is just the particular shot? I know this is a dumb question but the dress is no longer available on J Crew so there is no way to look at it!! Keep Rock and Rollin!! Thanks for any and all responses!
