Mark & Flic

Mark and Flic chose the Birmingham wedding venue Fazeley Studio in Digbeth.  I knew the area from my model photography and the area attracts some of the most talented graffiti artists.  Every time I visit Digbeth I discover some new cool looking artwork. Fazeley Studios doesn’t look like a normal wedding venue from the street but once inside the high ceiling and stain glass windows designs are really beautiful.  With it being so close to Birmingham city centre I think Fazeley studios is still a bit of a hidden gem.  (Writing this over a year later I did cover a second wedding at Fazeley studios in October 2017 for Nick and Naz).

Here are a selection of Flic and Mark’s wedding photos captured with my Leica M240  and Leica M8 cameras.

Leica Camera Wedding Bag

I used two digital Leica M camera bodies to minimise swapping lenses. I shot wide with the Leica M240 as it is full frame and closer with the Leica M8 as it has a 1.33x crop factor.  Lenses used were:

Leica M240 Camera
Voigtlander Super Wide Heliar 15mm f4.5 lens
Zeiss ZM Biogon 21mm f2.8 lens
Voigtlander Color Skopar 35mm f2.5 pancake lens

Leica M8 Camera
Leica Summilux 50mm f1.4 ASPH lens + IR cut filter

Hasselblad XPan Wedding!

Sarah & Cris

Sarah and Cris kindly invited me to cover their wedding at Hotel Felix in Cambridge last October.  Cris was a fellow Leica photographer/ enthusiast so I took my usual wedding camera, the digital Leica M240 camera but also my older digital Leica M8 camera so I could use two digital Leica M camera bodies.  I also took my digital Hasselblad H3D-31 camera to use for the wedding portraits. Lastly I managed to get a couple of photos with my 35mm film Hasselblad XPan camera. (Example above).

It was a beautiful day and I don’t think I have ever met such a smiley couple! (and bridesmaid!) 😉  It was a real joy to photograph people having so much fun.  I think I went home with smile lines myself! 🙂

Here are some of the wedding photos, split by camera for the fellow camera geeks!

(Quite a few photos but it gives a good idea of what me and the cameras can do)
