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

Coventry Wedding Photographer – Location Shoot

Venue for Engagement Session: Bishops Park, Fulham, London

I caught the train from Coventry and met Alex and Andy on a wet morning in November on Fulham Palace Road.  We decided to grab a coffee in a hope the rain would blow over.  It gave us chance to get to know each other and for me to explain the cameras I would be using.  I had the digital Leica M9 to capture the majority of the photos and also my 1950s Leica M3 film camera.  I had a part roll of black and white Kodak T-Max 100 to finish in the camera and would then shoot colour film, Fujicolor C200.  I normally use Kodak Portra but C200 can be quite nice too.

We were in luck. The rain stopped so we took a walk along the bank of the River Thames in an area known as Bishops Park and I got shooting.  I have a very relaxed photography style and I would like to think that Alex and Andy were soon at ease in front of the camera.  My small Leica cameras are very friendly and in no way intimidating so all in all it lead to a fun and sucessful morning.  I left London with a smile and felt very fortunate to have met two very kind and genuine people.  I had never met Alex and Andy until today but the morning was like enjoying good company with friends.  I am now counting down to Alex and Andy’s wedding in 2015!
