Chicago Film Medley

Noe Todorovich

When I travel, much of my packing time is spent deliberating which cameras, if any, to bring with me. I like to travel light, given my propensity for walking miles upon miles exploring, but I also like to document my travels. On this last trip to Chicago, I opted for just my 35mm film camera and iPhone. I brought two rolls of B&W and one of color. I also realized that double exposures are often my favorite shots but I seldom shoot them, so this time around I made an extra effort on that front. Some of the results are below...

All B&W self-developed and scanned. Color processing and scans provided by The FIND Lab.

Colleen & Richard's New Orleans Wedding

Noe Todorovich

One year ago, two of the most fashionable and fascinating people I knowColleen & Richardgot married in New Orleans. Patrick and I had the honor and pleasure of photographing the occasion. It’s a challenge for me to put into words just how amazing the experience was as I feel words alone don’t quite do it justice. I guess it’s a good thing we have plenty of pictures to fill in where words may fail me! ;)

We started the day at the bed and breakfast with some pictures of the lovely couple getting ready and sharing a first look in the charming courtyard. Then we headed over to Louis Armstrong Park for some portraits before the festivities officially began with a ride on the historic St Charles streetcar line. Attendees may have been under the impression we were heading to the ceremony site, but in fact the streetcar itself was the site (SURPRISE)! Once the vows were exchanged, we enjoyed the rest of the ride and taking photos both inside and outside along the way. Upon returning to the station, The Jaywalkers second line parade band awaited us, and we headed off into the French Quarter parading our way to the lovely reception site, Arnaud’s. And if that all wasn’t enough New Orleans goodness for one day, we did squeeze in a late night visit to Cafe Du Monde for some coffee and beignets. My kind of nightcap… :)

The entire day was magical and truly an honor to experience. It really hit me during the second line parade. As I juggled my cameras wanting to capture every moment every way possible, I started to tear up realizing how beautiful this experience was. How freely and wholeheartedly we were celebrating this couple and the beginning of their married life together.

Happy Anniversary, Colleen & Richard! Thank you for the honor of documenting the day and for letting us be a part of your beautiful celebration.

Seattle

Noe Todorovich

My dad's side of the family is from the Pacific Northwest, and many of them still live there. I remember visiting Seattle over the years as a kid and going to the Science Center and taking the ferry, bundled up to stay warm in the wind with a cup of hot cocoa in my hands. I remember visiting the Fremont Troll...although none of my family remembers taking me so that remains a mystery. I have lots of fond memories of my trips to Seattle and time spent with family.

Recently, I've been finding myself returning to Seattle more often for a mix of work and play. This past trip, I tried to focus on taking more film pictures with my medium format twin lens reflex as it's become one of my favorite cameras. I drove around Port Defiance in Tacoma one day and decided to take the ferry to Bainbridge on another...something I hadn't done in years, since those childhood visits of long ago. It was fun to explore somewhere new and revisit an experience of old.

Montreal

Noe Todorovich

In June, I visited Montreal for the first time to accompany Patrick as he finally got his tattoo from the venerable artist Yann Black. I was excited to tag along and see a new city. I debated bringing my DSLR but opted to take my medium format camera instead, loaded with some of my newfound favorite film, Kodak Ektar 100. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip. You can also scroll down to see a list of some of my favorite spots we visited.

I love Montreal.

I had heard great things and expected to enjoy the trip, but I have to say it exceeded my expectations. I’m already looking for an excuse to return and thinking about doing so in the fall and taking the train.

I highly recommend Airbnb, which opens up the neighborhoods you can stay in and can get you off the typical, tourist-only path. We stayed in the Plateau and loved it! I also used the Spotted by Locals app in addition to Foursquare and Google Maps.

Here are just a few of my favorite places we visited.

Kem CoBa
Delicious ice cream (scoop & soft serve)

Mount Royal
Easy, fun walk with beautiful views of the city

La Banquise
All of the delicious poutine

Patisserie Kouign Amann
Incredible pastry goodness that was well worth the three attempts it took me to get it (I was out of bed before 7 am, y’all. That serious.)

Casa del Popolo
Chill bar and music venue

Pastaga
One of my favorite meals I had on the trip...delectable small plates

Drawn & Quarterly
Bookstore in Mile End

Jean-Talon Market
Open but covered market with lots of fresh fruit, veggies, flowers and more

Wesmount Greenhouse
Expansive greenhouse complete with plumeria tree, taking me back to my Hawaiian roots

Kill Devil Hills

Noe Todorovich

Last month, I visited the Outer Banks for the first time, joining some friends for a beach getaway at Kill Devil Hills. We stopped at a delicious BBQ spot, picked up some Duck Donuts for later and headed over to the Wright Brothers National Memorial. It was crazy to stand there thinking about how flight 

After that we headed to Jockey's Ridge State Park at my behest. I wanted to see these 100-foot sand dunes I had heard about, and they did not disappoint. The entire area was so fun to explore and, of course, to photograph.

It was a really quick trip but a fun one. I think I'll just have to go back again soon...
