TEN YEARS OF LOVE AND ADVENTURE

ten years ago today, at the ripe ol' age of 18 and 21 we donned a dress and a suit, slid on some rings, and jumped headfirst into a life committed to loving one another.

we've had the better and the worse.
we've had the sickness and the health.
we've had the richer and the poorer.

today we sit hands clasped together tighter than ever, with two incredible children, in a home made possible by a photography business we love that has been committed to love just as long as our marriage has. grateful doesn't even begin to describe how blessed we feel to be on this beautiful life journey together. here's to many more years of adventure and stories worth sharing!

the images below are from a quick trip to napa valley last week. after a fantastic lunch in st. helena we looked for a lake on a map and set off through the hills in search of it. whenever we travel, our motto is "no plans are the best plans" and that lack of plan has always managed to lead us down amazing paths. what we found was a perfect little gift to us...no one around, no bathing suits, no problem...we stripped down to our underwear and dove into another perfect story to tell.

VSCO FILM PACK 02 // BEFORE AND AFTERS

! ! ! HAPPY DANCE ! ! !

we already posted a huge writeup on our history with film, our relationship with VSCO, and how VSCO film super speeds our processing workflow HERE, so if you haven't seen that yet, check it out.

after months and months of testing and development i'm so incredibly pumped that VSCO film pack 02 is finally being released into the wild! it's packed with 11 new film stocks with 4 variations each, most of which are my favorite films of yesterday and today. we've added in the whole line of the (unfortunately) discontinued kodak portra series, the full fuji superia series, and some rad new black and white films like fuji neopan 1600. many of these have quickly become my go to film stocks now for processing, like this wedding which was processed entirely with the new kodak portra 160VC+. the examples below have all been white balanced, then processed with one click with the new VSCO film pack 02 in adobe lightroom 4...like i said, happy dance :)

THE BUCKLEY WEDDING

some weddings just defy description.

natalia and brian's wedding, relationship, family, and every other piece to their puzzle was absolutely magical. we've never been good with words, but our dear friend (and coordinator for the day) angel swanson tried to put into words what this day meant to us all...her description of it as the perfect wedding seems just about right :)

enjoy...
* STOP! WATCH THIS...natalia and brian's friend and minister for the wedding, rapping the story of their relationship. hands down the coolest thing we've seen at a ceremony. video courtesy of the incredible guys at CANA VIDEO PRODUCTIONS

above are natalia and brian's reactions to the same day edit film below that CANA VIDEO PRODUCTIONS put together at the wedding and showed at the reception...the looks on their face and tears in their eyes were replicated by every single person in the room. amazing.

well played team, well played. let's do this again soon :)
