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.

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...

Istanbul

Noe Todorovich

A week ago, I returned from Istanbul with Turkish delights, coffee, teas, ceramics, a rug (yes, I succumbed), and great memories and stories. I'm finally making my way through the photos I took with a Fuji X100Sa wonderful travel camera that helped me travel light...until I filled my purse with purchases nearly every day. ;) There are plenty more where these came from (and stories behind them too), so just let me know if you want more! 

Photos are also available for purchase from my Etsy store or by contacting me directly with your specific request!

Eastern State Penitentiary

Noe Todorovich

Philadelphia is just a few hours drive from Washington, DC, making it a seemingly easy place to visit, but even so I feel like I knew surprisingly little about the city. Over the years, I found myself in Philly for work conferences, a photography workshop and a few other miscellaneous reasons like swinging by on our way to NYC. In almost every case, the reason for each trip dominated my time or else we were just passing through, so I didn't really get to spend much time exploring. So when my friend Ashley mentioned wanting to take a trip to see some museums and sites, I was more than happy to join. I also have a few close friends that live in the area, so it was a perfect opportunity to see new things and familiar faces. 

By far, the most fascinating and haunting experience that I just can't stop thinking about is visiting Eastern State Penitentiary. We went on a rainy, chilly day, which just added to the experience. After doing the introductory audio tour, we all ventured around to explore different wings, cells, and stories about the prison and its guards and inmates. In addition to information from the audio tour, they provide little guided tours of certain sections of the prison, like the operating room (where Al Capone had his mystery procedure done) and the dining halls. You can choose what you want to see or learn about through the audio tour. There were even art installations in some cells, each thought-provoking in their own way and often incorporating the theme of isolation and identity. 

I definitely want to return and highly recommend visiting the prison to anyone who hasn't yet. Here are a few photographs I took with my phone. (Film yet to be developed!)

Coachella 2013

Gina Todorovich

I realize this post is incredibly late, but I took so many pictures and videos during Coachella that I was unable to share AT Coachella due to the spotty service. (What’s that, you get TONS of people all in one place to listen to amazing music and yet everyone’s trying to use their phones and thus overloading the cell networks?! YUP.) And then one day turned into the next and the next. And suddenly we're into May. MAY?!
