We have so many beautiful weddings and projects to post, that I’m really unsure of where to start. So, instead of beginning with a complete blog post on a client or job, I thought I would start with a product. For, as every photographer is well aware, December is the month of deadlines, orders, and albums galore!
The product I’m going to share is Margot and Chris’s Wedding Album. So, here’s the skinny. I LOVE this album. I think it has something to do with the interesting aesthetic of the digital and film images complementing each other. The black and white images in this album were shot on Ilford 3200, Neopan 1600, and Kodak 400 film. The color images were shot on Portra 400NC, Provia 400 (cross-processed), and digital. I find putting together all these different mediums oddly pleasing - the trick is shooting each image in the same style.
A little background - I knew when I first met Margot and her mother at the studio that I we would all work well together. They laugh…a lot…and so do I. Margot has such a joyful spirit. When I look at her images I smile because she is just always so happy! Chris was quite the trooper for the past year. First of all, he got up at the crack of dawn to meet me at Five Star Plantation in Alabama this past spring for their engagement session, (which is one of my faves to date). Then, on his wedding day, in the rain, he agreed to trek all over Mountain Brook with his Bride under an umbrella. I couldn’t be more appreciative of his willingness to indulge Margot, and me!
Their wedding was so unique for many reasons. I’ll definitely share more images and back story in a different, more traditional client post. (There also may be another chance for you to see a more editorial view of their wedding day, and read about Margot & Chris elsewhere. *hint*)!
Technical Information: this album was designed with Photojunction, one of my studio must-haves! All templates were designed by our studio or my good friend Melissa Jill. This is not the album in its entirety, just an overview of the book. Each layout is a complete flush-mount spread.
It kicks off with a sweet image from the nursery in Crestline Village…
Okay, the flush black and white image on this spread is one of my absolute favorites from the entire day! I love how it comes together with the color images.
How much fun is this spread?! I feel like this is the ultimate example from this book of a solid mix of mediums.
Sometime you have to save the best for last…
So, there you have it - a peek into one of our wedding albums for 2009. Check back for a client post on Margot and Chris in the next month!
