I don’t shoot weddings very often, but when I do, I shoot them on film. All images made using Nikon F100 and F4/50mm 1.4G and 28mm 1.8G and Kodak Portra 400 rated at 200. Developing and scanning by the very understanding and most excellent, CANADIAN FILM LAB
All images of Megan and Laura were made using various cameras and either Kodak Portra 400 or Fuji Superia 400 film. The fourth image down was shot on 120 medium format film, I then accidentally left the roll in direct window light for a couple of days, which is why the frame numbers have imprinted through the backing paper and onto the negative.

A friend of mine bought a new sofa – it looks like leather, it feels like leather, and it even smells like leather – but it’s not. It’s plastic. Internationally-renowned photojournalist, Sebastião Salgado, up until a few years ago, shot all of his work on film; he’d carry two all manual Leica cameras, a couple of lenses and bag full of Kodak black and white film. Whenever he got the chance, the Brazilian would have his film developed and printed. […]
When it comes to spending twelve hours a day on a scallop dredger, I have two choices – either medicate myself with anti-nausea pills, which cause drowsiness, and spend half the day asleep in a bunk below deck.
