Someone recently asked me why I love shooting weddings. I think we approach them differently. Not only differently in terms of trying to shoot in a more unique way that all those big wedding studios, but we treat each wedding as a unique event unto itself. Most weddings have similar elements. The challenge of wedding photography, and what I think sets us apart, is that we don’t have a set way of how we shoot those similar elements, or how they get processed. Take the classic Broad Street shot, for instance. No two are exactly alike. Some are light hearted and playful, others deeply romantic, some have that perfect dip, and some look like they’re straight out of fashion magazine. Each wedding leaves me with a different impression of what made it beautiful and uniquely special.
Kelly and Mike had the ultimate classic wedding. With their movie star good looks, her classic dress screamed old Hollywood glamour. From a traditional ceremony at Old St Mary’s Church to fun bridal party photos at Race Street (where we were lucky enough to grab a fabulous shoot with model Porsha Terry in the spring), this wedding seemed to beg for tons of grainy Ilford film black and whites and Portra color film treatments. Here are just a few of my favorites from the day. Enjoy!
