Digging out the Rollei again…

It took me awhile… but I am back and so is the Rollei.

I have been completely swamped for the past three months… my brain has been divided in so many directions and I haven’t had time for anything other than work and planning for the wedding celebration Arann and I had with some of our closest friends and family over the weekend. The official/legal marriage is yet to come, but we wanted to at least celebrate with some of our dearest loved ones. We are going to legally get married in a state where everyone is allowed to marry, and now we are excited to add two more states to the list of options… Vermont and Iowa…. yay for the little states.

And now back to the celebrating with the people we love….

The weekend was so wonderful… and I did not take a single photo…. until Sunday. Then I dusted off the Rollei that has been neglected for months and started documenting the after party of the after party. And nothing says “party” like dental floss and tecate.

I was in love with the colors and the sunshine and my friends so I couldn’t help but take their photos…. again and again and again.

These beautiful people are my Montana friends. The baby, Margot, and the mom, Nici, were here just over a year ago and their portrait on the beach was one of the first portraits I did with my Rollei. It was love at first sight (of the Rollei negatives) then, and after picking up the scans from the lab this time, one year later, it is clear that the Rollei has stolen my heart yet again.
