In the studio with Angela for her formal bridal portrait, and because she wore two wedding dresses, we photographed her with two different film types:  8 x 10 polaroid and 4×5 black and white.   At her wedding, she wore traditional white, and a traditional, Cheongsam with dragon & phoenix design.

New 55 film produces both a positive print, and a negative for scanning and printing.

 

We then shot 8 x 10 large format with with this camera:

The wedding of Courtney and Jacob at the Monarch Beach ( formerly St. Regis) Resort.

This was the final shot of the night, which ended up being my favorite of the entire event. I love nostalgia, and this one feels like a 50’s early 60’s photograph. A fun filled moment for the couple, well into their wedding reception.

This is my second favorite photograph of the day. Negative space in a photograph is such a positive! It give your eye room to breath and I love how the focus on the bride laughing, a “shot between the shot”

Erica and Matt were married at the beautiful Casa Romatica, located in San Clemente.  Some early morning showers brought some amazing clouds- as October always does.  The couple decided to forgo a bridal party ( wise choice)  Erica wanted her “bride tribe” to have no obligations, but to come and enjoy the party.

Gorgeous views from the rooftop of the Jonathan Club in Los Angeles, and a great venue to shoot medium format film.

old county courthouse wedding photographer santa ana

If you are going to do a courthouse wedding, I highly recommend The Old Courthouse in Santa Ana.  They have a few rooms to tie the knot, and for more $ you can book the top floor, as seen in Legal Blonde and That Thing You Do.

Monica and Peter were married at the historic Old County Courthouse in Santa Ana, CA.

The landmark Old Orange County Courthouse is Southern California’s oldest court building

 

 

Hugh Nguyen, THE oc clerk Recorder married them!  He is a celebrity to me, I see his name on the envelope making it official almost every weekend.

Getting hitched at the Courthouse?  Call me, I love intimate weddings!

I have always wanted to photograph at the Historic Old Courthouse, and was thrilled when Monica and Peter contacted the studio to photograph their wedding.   This is the film image we shot on 4×5 new 55 film, which produces both a positive and negative. The detail is phenomenal.

 

 

The sinar p2 is more of a studio camera, and Kip Roof let me borrow his beautiful 4×5 for this shot ( and he set it up too.)

Congrats to Monica and Peter- excited to post part 2.
