2015 Film Wedding Photography: Ben & Natalie
Wedding Venue: Little Hallingbury Mill, Bishops Stortford & St Barts Brewery, London
Ben & Natalie’s Wedding
Ben and Natalie kindly invited me to do their wedding photography at Little Hallingbury Mill, Bishops Stortford in Hertfordshire during the summer. I had the digital Leica M 240 as my main camera for the day and for film photography I had a variety of film cameras (see below). Natalie has chosen vibrant coloured flowers for their wedding so I loaded the cameras with 35mm Kodak Ektar 100 and 120 Kodak Portra 400 film. Below are some of the film wedding photos from the day, as scanned.
Film Wedding Photography
For 2016 I hope to move closer to shooting analogue only film wedding photography (without digital). For model photography and portraiture I use film camera for the main photos now but have the digital Leica M 240 to test. I tend to specialise in black and white film photography for fashion and beauty photos but for weddings I always offer the couple the choice of film used. Most wedding couples ask for a mix of colour and black and white but for this occasion I shot all colour film due to the colourful wedding styling.
- 1950s 35mm Leica M3 + various Leica M mount lenses
