design aglow diaries: rest stops & open roads

 

What happens when your car shipper (who shall remain nameless) completely bails out on you? Two amazing friends (and fantastic photographers) volunteer to take your car on a road trip from Florida to Oregon. Day 1 for the Pogos begins... Our goal: get out of Florida. Actually, get out of the states we've driven through before, and get through the behemoth that is Texas; we want to see desert, we want to see something we haven't seen before. So we left in the middle of the night and traded off driving/napping for the first 12 hours. Starbucks factored into this day quite a bit, especially given how few of them are along this road. (The app iExit is amazing for this kind of thing.) Stopped for gas and because it was insanely foggy. (I kept blinking to clear my bleary eyes, but that wasn't the problem.) Kept going; fog cleared up. Traded off driving in Tallahassee at sunrise. Found some amusing rest areas along the way. We have this road trip thing down to a science. We made it to Dallas around 9 pm, and had an enormous dinner before crawling into bed and passing out. Next goal: Albuquerque. Which should be a more interesting day based on both of us being awake for the whole drive. :-) Xoxo Emily, Pogo Photo Remember to follow the #designaglowdiaries hashtag to see our adventures!

Ola! I run The Auburn Hour Film Co. We’re all about creating modern, energetic and fun wedding films. After graduating university and bouncing around aimlessly for a few years (yes, I have a useless arts degree hanging in my home!), I found my way into the fashion and event scene, and eventually wound up second shooting wedding videos for friends I had gone to uni with. I had heard from a number of sources that I should never get into wedding films if I could help it. I would hear tales of bridezillas, endless stress and and backlog of overdue films up to my ears. And I was starting to believe it!

We created this stunning charcoal linen 12x12 album for a new client to showcase their family studio portrait session. WIth 20 pages printed on gorgeous Fuji Crystal Archive paper (about as far away as giclee/ink-jet printing you can get). These albums are meant to enjoy, collect, and treasure for generations to come. What family or grandparent would not love one of these for the holidays?

I never really intended to be a wedding photographer or cinematographer. I’ve always had a huge love for movies, and the idea of getting into that industry intrigued me, but I didn’t really know where to start. When I graduated with a degree in communications in 2006 and figured I'd just be at a typical 9-5er for the rest of my life. In 2011 a friend posted on Facebook that she needed someone to videotape her wedding ceremony (happening the next day). I borrowed my brother's canon Rebel and that was my first official wedding. A year later I quit my day job and was shooting weddings full time.
