Going Vintage…

Grandma had it, Mum threw it out, I brought it back!

Today I wanted to show a Vintage style of wedding photography. This is more of a theme than a style… originally the actual look to come out of those beautiful, old, medium and large format cameras with lush grainy film and light leaks creating spots on the photos, along with prints that had aged over time or faded in the sunlight. This look, however, has become a growing trend for many modern brides over the last few years.

As much as we can take photographs with antique props and those “face the camera” poses – you will see a few below, the actual style and feel is now post process and can vary too, some couples like extreme vintage with scratches, cross processing effects, and light leaks, while some prefer a mild look with sepia or warm tones added to their photos, and others go slightly contemporary with just that hint of light, under-saturated, or the “faded in the sunlight” look!

Of course there are photographers who still only shoot on beautiful film, medium format cameras and even authentic over-used ones which have light leaks and I am one to admit myself that there is nothing yet to give that true authentic feel than a beautiful old medium or large format camera. I, personally own three, along with an 8mm cine camera, however these for me are kept for hobby only, they are too time consuming for the work I do.
