engagement photographer nicole caldwell studio cinestill film 08

During the wedding consultation, I found out these two professional musicians met in college, in music class,  so photographing them in the studio with their instruments it was for the engagement session!  Shot using the Hasselblad with both cinestill color and Ilford black and white film. I like to find out about my couples- how they met, what they enjoy in life, to create something that is unique to them.

You too can travel to the Center of the World! It’s about ten minutes outside the Arizona / California border in a town called Felicity, and in that town, is the “Official Center of the World.” ( and it’s cheap only costs $3 donation, or $5 for the tour and certificate!)

A few years back a Frenchman named  Jacques-Andre Istel, bought some land in the desert to retire, he named the town after his wife, Felicia ( whom I was lucky to meet sh’es in the photo too!), and hence the Center of the world was created.

History is caved in Granite, there is a non denominational Church that sits above the town, and a staircase that leads to nowhere. (The stairs are from the Eiffel tower.)

Inside the Pyramid is the exact center of the world, very precise, you must stand in the very center dot.

I was hoping for a bright sun filled day ( a rarity. usually crossing fingers for those clouds) because I was shooting infrared film.  Still ghost like and unique I am quite happy with the results.

Grain is Good. Taylor and Tommy’s wedding at 7 degrees in Laguna Beach. Photographed with the Hasselblad  and Cinestill 120 medium format film.

I saw hearts for Taylor, when I found out the bride’s signature drink was a Dirty Martini. The Groom’s tonic? Manhattan.  Here they are during Cocktail hour with their signature tonics.

Film Really gives a vintage look to this wedding, which is fitting, because the bride wore wearing her mother’s wedding dress. Grain, motion blur, camera blur, light leaks, imperfections, all make it unique and worth it.

The couple chose wisely and has a private moment together for the first look, up in the bamboo garden of Seven Degrees.  Such a zen area, with trees and waterfalls.  This hug from Tommy after seeing his bride for the first time was so sweet, you can’t get moments like this when you see each other for the first time during the ceremony.

Sparkler Farewell – Lady Luck was with us for this medium format film shot. Love the motion in the lat shot when Tommy spontaneously “dipped” his bride.

We had a remote control in one had to trigger another camera on a light stand above the crowd, hence this amazing gif!  Special thanks to photographer Kip Roof.
