Mamiya 645 Wedding

Dan & Amelia’s Wedding

Back in April 2015 I was invited to photograph Dan and Amelia’s wedding at Mamble Church,  Worcester.  The digital Leica M9 was my main camera for the day but I was also asked to do some film photography.  I love nothing more than a film wedding so took a selection of film cameras along on the day!  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 only film wedding photography (without digital).  For model photography and portraiture I only now use the film camera photos but I have a Leica M 240 for test images.  Film photos are soft focus and I enjoy the natural colours and way film captures light.  All wedding photos here are taken using 35mm and 120 Kodak Portra 400 film.

Film Cameras

  • 1950s 35mm Leica M3 + Leica Summicron 50mm f2 DR lens
  • Medium format Mamiya 645 Super + Mamiya Sekor 80mm f1.9 lens

Leica Summicron 75 f2 Wedding

I started the day with Mat and his guests at The Bell pub in Harborne next door to the church.  Sian met us at the church then after the wedding ceremony we did the group photos then moved on to Eaton Hotel on the Hagley Road for the wedding breakfast and evening guests arriving.

Here is a selection of photos from the wedding day. The couple opted for digital wedding photography and I had planned to do some additional medium format film photography but we didn’t get chance due to time constraints.

Digital Photos – Leica M9 + Leica Noctilux 50mm f1.0 at f1 for most of the day (including all group photos at 50f1)(excluding some 21mm f2.8 + 28mm f2 wide angle photos, the 90mm f2 Summicron for the speeches and 75mm f2 APO for detail images).

Leica Engagement Shoot – Kenilworth Castle, Warwickshire

Coventry Wedding Photographer

Here are some of the photos taken this morning with my Leica M9 camera. I wanted to showcase to couples who are looking to have an engagement shoot or book a wedding photographer what is possible for you. I aim to provide wedding couples with a mix of relaxed reportage style candid photos throughout the day plus some posed high fashion wedding portraits as seen here. This is my style of Leica wedding photography.

This morning Harriett and Ashley modelled for me and Donna kindly came along as my lighting assistant. I used the same lighting and equipment that I use on a wedding day and going forward I plan to take an assistant with me for every shoot (feel free to get in touch if…

Leica Engagement Shoot (2)

Yesterday I had chance to do another couple shoot with my Leica M9 camera. We did an engagement themed shoot with model friends Raki and Terri. Neither of them had worked together before but they gelled together really well and it made for an easy to direct shoot.

For most weddings, couples do not set aside enough time to get a wide range of natural yet creative wedding portraits. Many couples are also on a tight budget so skip the engagement shoot option. I organise shoots like this one with Raki and Terri to show ‘real’ couples what is possible for them if they opt for either an engagement shoot or book me as their wedding photographer. I am not looking to shoot a wedding every weekend as I don’t want to mass…

Venue for Engagement Shoot: Coombe Abbey Hotel, Coventry + Coventry Studio

 

Pre-wedding engagement photography a using a Leica M9 camera.  You may recognise Maria from past Flickr photos I have shared as she has modelled for me before.  Maria asked if I could do a black and white studio photography shoot for her and Dior who recently got engaged.  I agreed but recommended we also did an outside location shoot too as that is where the Leica Noctilux 50mm f1.0 v2 lens really comes into it’s own.  With that all agreed we did a part one and part two shoot, with the first being in the studio and getting Dior used to the camera and the second at the popular Coventry wedding venue, Coombe Abbey Hotel as it is only down the road from them.

(You might note that this was also the location of Sukhi and Raechelle’s engagement session photos!  Coombe has extensive grounds that are very diverse so give a broad range of potential photo oppotunities).

Part 1: Coventry Photography Studio

For the studio images the couple wanted edgy fashion posed looking photos in black and white tones, with less of the standard happy smiley engagement looking faces.  I posed the guys and lit them accordingly.

Part 2: On location – Coombe Abbey Hotel, Coventry

For the location images the Maria and Dior wanted the traditional happy smiley (more commercial photography) looking photos.  Again I posed the couple and but then also evoked the emotions to create the moment to be captured in each image.  A couple can be madly in love with each other but if it is not visual it will not come across in the engagement photos.  This also stands true for posing couples for wedding photography.  Every couple is of course different and some make it easier for me than others.  Maria and Dior are naturally very smiley and look good in front of the camera so that made for a fun shoot.
