It’s not often I get to photograph the week leading up to a wedding day, let alone join a couple on their honeymoon. But in November, we did all that.
After photographing our friend’s wedding we drove to Las Vegas together.
Since we’ve left Vegas I’ve only dreamed of Vegas.
They walked through the streets downtown, had a coffee, and got married.
The last photo was taken right before I left. I always like to take one last portrait of the bride and groom because any nervousness from the day has subsided. It was taken with a point and shoot film camera because I imagined it as one of those heirloom photos in an album.
Here are a few of my personal favorites.
I had the privilege of photographing their engagement, their wedding day, and after a few years - their kid!
We took some photos around their home, then headed to the park to play on the swings, and went for a little walk down some side streets.
These were taking with a point and shoot film camera. I dig the grain.
It’s not often I get to photograph the week leading up to the wedding day. But I had the opportunity in November, 2018 and hope to continually do so for couples this year.
The week leading up to the wedding included dress fittings, the bride recording a song for their first dance, night time phone calls to the groom in a parking lot, binge watching a TV show, picking up the dress, setting up the backyard for the wedding, and quiet evenings at home.
You can see what they said about their photos here.
I chose to photograph Lucy and Joe with a point and shoot film camera with expired Kodak Gold 200 because it suit them best. They’re laid-back, minimal, real. I also based the location on this. They can take a location that’s not over the top and make it cool.
Yuki & Regan.
We went to my favorite spot on the Lakeshore in Etobicoke (Toronto). It’s a path, lined with willow trees, that leads to rocks you can sit on and view the lake.
These were photographed on 35mm film because I wanted the pictures to look like how being young and in love in the summer time feels.
I couldn’t have hoped for the light leak to be in a better spot in the first photo.
A couple of architects.
These photos were inspired by your family photo albums.
Taken only with film, only with vintage cameras.
This is one particular package we offer; all film.
As you may notice there is a different kind of shooting style that comes along with photographing a wedding with only film.
We photographed this wedding with the same kind of film the bride’s parent’s wedding was photographed on. The bride’s shoes was worn by her mother on her wedding day. Lots of sentimentality in the little details.
This one’s for the nostalgia lovers.
