Wedding photography at St Elizabeth's House in Plymouth

Some of you will  remember a post  launched with the new look website with images from St Elizabeths House in Plymouth.  Here  are some film images which happened  to take  much longer  than I would have preferred to get back to me. In the mean time I had edited about 500 images for our Bride & Groom to view when they returned from honeymoon.

These are a selection of images I took using a traditional medium format film camera. The cameras we use for most of our digital wedding work are from the Canon Stable. Usually the latest version “Canon 5d mk3” we love this camera as its super quiet and quick to focus. We also have the Canon Mk2’s as back up cameras,some of the digital  images can be seen on an earlier post from St Elizabeth’s House. This selection however were all from a medium format film camera from Contax 645 (sadly no longer manufactured) although I can buy a digital back for this camera I bought it for its traditional use of Film. 120 or 220 roll film. The film I’m totally in love with is from Kodak called “Portra” these were shot on 800 iso film new and expired to expreiment  & a roll of expired 160 Portra.

If your wondering where Carly got her  amazing dress from I can tell you the ladies  from “The Wedding Company”  the designer gown came from  Charlotte Balbier 

These images are straight scans from my chosen lab.

We started using film again after  ten years of 100% digital photography.A very grainy look from a film that expired in 2006, I should have over exposed this more but I like the organic feel from the grain.This set of Images where shot on Kodak Portra 160 iso. I rated the film at 100 iso to over expose it slightly
