Last September and ahead of their wedding day, Sam and Patrick requested a pre-wedding engagement session to get some practice in front of the camera before the wedding. We arranged to meet in the Peak District but when we arrived it was raining so much of the shoot was done with me shooting from under an umbrella or using trees and an old out building for shelter. All photos we taken with a Leica M9 camera and the majority with the Leica Summicron 75mm f2 APO lens. At the time I was shooting less film so no film examples i’m afraid.
It is surprising when only looking back six months how much my style has changed. For 2015 the engagement and wedding photos are softer utilising mostly ambient light and with an emphasis on film photography. I still use the digital Leica M9 camera for my main camera but I now also use Leica film cameras (Leica M3 and M2) and medium format film.
