Sarah kindly invited me to join her and Ed on their wedding day at Tythe Barn, Bicester UK.  Sarah wanted all digital wedding photograhy so I didn’t take my analogue film cameras.  Thanks for a lovely day Sarah and Ed and here are a sample of their wedding photos I captured.

*For any viewers that also appreciate cameras and the geeky stuff, I shot the majority of the day on my usual Leica M240 rangefinder camera (hence the title)(with a few different lenses including the Leica Noctilux 50mm f1.0).  I also had chance to use my recently purchased digital Hasselblad H3D-31 + 80mm f2.8 kit lens.  Both cameras have their strengths!

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
