Jane & Sam on Film – Taitlands – North Yorkshire Wedding Photography

Film photography (yes, that’s right, where you put the roll of film into your camera and don’t get to see the results until you develop it!) is a growing passion of ours, and in particular, shooting medium format film on our beloved Contax 645s.  We love film so much that we’ve even started up a film developing and scanning lab called UK Film Lab, which is growing in popularity every day and allowing us to be part of a wonderful film shooting community.  Soon we’ll be introducing film packages into our wedding photography services, in addition to our existing film-only venture, One Experience.  But having seen some of our film work, the sweet, funny and wonderfully enthusiastic Jane and Sam, asked us if we’d shoot some at their wedding last month.  And of course we said yes!  We love the soft, beautiful colours of colour film and the clean, natural look of black and white film; we love the way in makes us take photographs; we love the simplicity and yet the skill involved; and we love the exciting anticipation of waiting to see your images.  Thank you Jane and Sam for your passion and enthusiasm for having beautiful wedding photographs, and for making it so easy and enjoyable for us to take them.  These were shot on a mixture of Fuji 400H, Portra 800 and TRI-X 400, developed and scanned by us, at the amazingly beautiful Taitlands in North Yorkshire.

Katharine Peachey - Delightful, especially those lovely evening light portraits. And just realised you are UK film lab too! How exciting.

Francesca & Andy – London Engagement Shoot

On a perfect late spring day towards the end of last month Christian and I set off on a trip to London to meet up with a very cute couple – Francesca and Andy, whose wedding we are looking forward to shooting at the same time next year!  Francesca had chosen two beautiful settings for the shoot – starting with Kenwood House gardens (where thanks to our terrible start to the spring and summer weather, the azaleas were still in beautifully vibrant bloom) and Temple.  Everything about the day was a complete treat!  From getting to know this charming and very photogenic couple, to spending time in these picturesque locations, and finally to being able to shoot the whole affair entirely on medium format film to bring out all the amazing colours – nothing could have been better!  For the film buffs among you these were all shot on Fuji 400H film with our much loved Contax 645 cameras…developed and scanned by us aka UK Film Lab.  Thanks Francesca and Andy for a wonderful day, and we hope you enjoy looking at the photographs as much as we enjoyed taking them!

Jenna & Rob | Hertfordshire Engagement Photography

A few weeks ago we travelled down to Hertfordshire to meet Jenna and Rob for the first time, and to do their engagement shoot….they’re getting married in just a few weeks and I can’t believe how quickly it’s come around! There are many things to love about this shoot….early spring light, such a happy couple, yellow Hunter wellies, and overall just a lovely colour palette. We had a lot of fun and it was a real pleasure to spend time with Jenna and Rob…see you both in a few weeks!
