Analog | A 90's take on a Wedding in the Woods

intro

Philippa and Thierry aka #Philthy contacted me last year to ask me if I’d be interested to be their wedding photographer…They said they liked my photography style and as pleased as I was to hear that, I was quite surprised because I had never shot a wedding before.

They wanted the images to look natural, spontaneous, unstaged,  which (by the way) totally represent that effortlessly stunning couple.  Also, in my opinion there’s something really cool about the aesthetics of the pictures in the 90’s that kind of look vintage to us now in 2018. A flash that catches someone by surprise and over exposes a picture in a unexpected way, can look pretty dope.

The thing is, only a crazy person would accept to shoot a wedding in film, I mean, even if you’re an analog god, you have no control on the film itself : what if the person in the lab sucks? What if someone opens the door when they’re developing the pictures? What if my good ol’vintage Pentax breaks? What if the flash ruins the picture or actually, what if I just suck? It’s a WEDDING for god’s sake, it’s a once in a lifetime event and let’s put it this way, film is unpredictable.

I DID end up saying yes under the condition that they hire a digital photographer that would take all the ‘’official’’ photos. The ones that go on a memory card and can be saved in a computer for a lifetime.

I am pretty happy about how they turned out. Here are a few imperfect shots of a beautiful wedding.
