Today, I had the pleasure of photographing Shelly and Josh for the first time; next time will be their wedding in January! They’re a really fun couple, easygoing, and a genuine joy to be around. I have a LOT of photos to go through from today, so this sampling is just a super quick glance through the set and there will be more to come, including some shot on 35mm(!) B&W film.
It’s been a loooong time since I’ve shot 35mm since all of my film work over the past few years has been centered on medium and large formats, but there was something deeply satisfying about pulling out the Nikon F100 that I hadn’t told them I was toting along, mating it with my favorite lens, the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 AF-D, and hearing the sound that only a 35mm motor drive can bring. They’re a couple that requires very little direction and took some of my ideas and just ran with them. I’m looking forward to going through the full set over the next several days. There’s a lot of great and, often, extremely humorous stuff in there. Some of which I’m saving just for them.
