You guys, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all of your kind and supportive comments on my last post. I was sort of at my wits’ end when I wrote it (which you could probably tell), but taking a little break (and maybe a little ice cream) was just what I needed – so thank you! Tech gods willing, we’ll be back to normal posting next week,  and we’re back to weekend links today…

Dear Readers,

I want to apologize to all of you. Snippet & Ink has been experiencing what feels like an inordinate number of technical issues over the last few weeks, and I hate thinking about how annoying it must be for you to try and access posts when things aren’t working properly. This past week we made the move to a new server, with the thought that it will solve some of the access issues you might have experienced a few weeks ago, but the process of moving over has brought along its own set of challenges.

After losing several posts, being unable to upload images, getting totally blitzed by spam comments, and finally new posts not showing up at all… I kind of hit a wall (read: had a minor meltdown) and decided that the best thing would be to take a step back and breathe. My hope is that the folks who provide Snippet & Ink with web support will be able to resolve these issues quickly, and that we’ll be back to regular posting as soon as possible – I have so many beautiful weddings and other pretties that I can’t wait to share with you! But until then, I hope you’ll forgive a little bit of radio silence while we regroup, and that you’ll pay us a visit us on Pinterest, FacebookTwitter, or Instagram.

Thanks for always being such thoughtful and understanding readers, and for bearing with us as we go through some growing pains. Hopefully we’ll have things sorted out (and better than ever!) really soon.

xoxo
Kathryn

There’s something really special about Super 8 films, so it’s easy to understand why a couple might choose a videographer to capture their wedding day in this nostalgic medium. But what about other important moments or events that you might want to keep between family and friends (meaning: without a professional videographer)? With a baby on the way, I imagine having her first birthday on Super 8 – what a wonderful memory that would be! Or what about a honeymoon or birth story or even a family vacation? I love the idea of capturing life in analog, which makes me super excited to introduce the Homemade Films kit from my buddies at A Bryan Photo.

Here are a few of my favorites (they’re all under 4 minutes, so definitely take a sec to check them out):

BRITISH COLUMBIA HONEYMOON

ITALIAN VACATION

WELCOME HOME BABY

Aren’t these fun?! The way it works is A Bryan Photo sends you their Homemade Films kit complete with Super 8 camera and film, you use it and send it back them, and then they edit it into a memorable film for you. One couple loves them so much they’ve taken it with them on three different trips!

So what would you want to capture on Super 8? Wouldn’t this be a rad wedding gift for a group of friends to give a couple for their honeymoon?

I’m at that place in my pregnancy where when the baby moves I can actually see my belly move! How crazy is that?! I also recently discovered maxi dresses (don’t ask me what rock I’ve been under) and I’m pretty sure I’m going to start living in them. Anything that looks put together but feels like pajamas is aces in my book (pregnant or not). So that’s me these days – belly moves and maxi dresses. Not exactly the most exciting stuff (which I guess is good when you’re waiting around for a baby), so tell me about your exciting things! Wedding plans? Engagements? What’s new with you, dear readers?!
