What happens when you take a gorgeous couple who are perfect for each other and both love vintage style, with a lovely summers day at Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia and analogue cameras? Find out after the jump!
Topher and Rae are an inspiring couple, from different places and brought together in Halifax. They met and married within a year and I am so happy to have been asked to photograph their very special day with their intimate ceremony with only 12 guests! These two were just meant to be together, everything from Topher’s guitar playing matching to Rae’s beautiful voice and their awesome sense of style. They pulled everything together from etsy, thrift stores, and from local artists!
I wont talk too much about the picturesque location of Peggy’s Cove, as I have already done so here but to date, this has still been my absolute favorite location for shooting a wedding!
Knowing their love of vintage I knew I just had to take along a couple of analogue cameras, I took my Polaroid and my Yashica loaded with some Lomography 35mm Redscale Film. I really wish I had shot more with film now! I really hope to one day be hired solely as a creative film shooter for a wedding!
We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. I'll start with Rapid film.
After a fully booked 2015, photographer Chloé Vollmer-Lo found time to test the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens. She brought it to the Natural History Museum and the Paris business district, an endeavor that resulted in quite a few stunning, bokeh-rich images.
Ella Lama is a letterer and illustrator based in Manila, Philippines. Her work is a perfect mix of good cheer and unfeigned creativity. Recently, she designed a Lomo'Instant White camera with cute and playful illustrations inspired by her Japan trip.
Aside from photography, newcomer Dmitri Berenger enjoys a multitude of hobbies including gardening, watching movies, and discovering music. In this interview, he talks about his photographic style, his inspirations, choosing film cameras over digital gear, and many more.
London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."
