Friday is here and so is my FILM.  YAY.  

NOW, I'm waiting on the film to load on to my Mac and then I'm getting started..well tomorrow I'll get started with editing.  A full day running with dad, playing the the water with Layla, looking for wedding gowns with my sister-in-law and visiting friends has left my brain empty.

I'm aiming for having a little teaser by the end of the check back soon!

waiting on Friday...

I'm posting mainly because I've been WAY slack with this blog and I know some of you all use this to keep up with Black Daffodil.  Sorry guys!

Filming went great the other weekend and I'm playing the waiting game now.  I'm expecting the processed film to be back by Friday and will get started right away.  I tried some new techniques with this film, so I'm really excited to see how it looks.  I heard from my guy at Spectra Film and Video that the film was going to be beautiful shot the way I shot it...but we'll see.

Hopefully by the end of next week, I'll have a little teaser for you all.  I think my hubby is already stressing over the music on this one.  I argued that he'll top the last one easy--he always does.

Thanks for hanging in there with me--despite the neglect of this poor little blog.  I will post more often...I will post more often...I will post more often.  There.  Better.

YAY for selling my first 8mm wedding package!

I am so feels like such an accomplishment.  I think what makes me so incredibly excited is that the groom, who I've had the pleasure of getting to know via phone calls, has some knowledge of Super 8 film and LOVES it.  His grandfather worked for Kodak for nearly 40 years and was always bringing home new "movie films" for his cameras (speaking of which...I'm trying out a new film on Saturday...I think I may have found my sweet spot with it).  It was so nice not to have to sell someone on the beauty and romance of was nice that he had already fallen in love with it.

Although the bride and groom are from DC, they are getting married in good old NC.  So on Saturday evening, I'll drive down to Denton, NC to a small, one room, white church with no air conditioning and creaky old benches to film.  Doesn't it just sound "moody" already?  From what I understand, the church isn't used anymore, but it is on some old family land...I think it actually used to be a school house?  Anyway, they'll tie the knot at this adorable little church in the middle of a tall grass field and then head off to Revolution Mill in Greensboro for the reception.  I've photographed some weddings at Revolution Mill with dad, so I'm excited to see how it looks on film...I can't imagine it being anything less than perfect.

The best part of it all, Neil is going to be tagging along at the reception to film a new "product" for me...I can't wait to share it with you guys, because the idea is super cool...but I'm going to keep it under lock and key until I have something to show.  

Saturday will be very busy...but loads of fun.  PLUS I get to work with my two favorite husband and my father.  
I'm excited about working with my husband for the first time....
