When shooting a wedding, my goal is to capture the day, not turn it into a day-long
photo shoot. To do that, I photograph most of the wedding using vintage and modern
film cameras. Shooting film not only delivers beautiful colors and tones, it also slows
down the pace of the day. I value each shot, and using film allows me to take my time,
trust the precision of my craft, and enjoy documenting the day with you as it unfolds.

  Take a moment to browse this page and learn
more about the cameras I use. You'll see me
with any one (or three) of them around my
neck at any point - to be fair, my assistant is
the one who will really be hauling them
around.
  To complete the film experience, I also scan
each image in my studio on a
professional-grade film scanner. This process
gives me the control to provide you with
high-quality, digital images that beautifully
and honestly represent your wedding.

The Equipment
   



Pentax 67

The Pentax 67 shoots the same size negative as the RZ, but in a much more portable body style. It's the RZ's faster, lighter little brother. I use the two cameras in tandem to give me more options for shooting style, while preserving the same quality and format.

   



RZ 67

The RZ 67 has been coveted among magazine photographers because it produces large, crisp negatives. While its size and slow working speed have traditionally reserved for in-studio work, I use its pace to help slow down the wedding day and carefully craft each image. It's become an essential part of my kit, even if my assistants dread carrying it around.

   



Leica

The Leica is the classic documentary camera. Used by war photographers and photo journalists for decades, its light weight, small size, and quiet shutter make the Leica ideal for seamlessly capturing the day's intimate moments.

   



Widelux

Of all the cameras in my bag, the Widelux gets the most "oohs" and "aahs." That's probably because of its rotating lens and vintage body (it was first developed in Japan in the 1940s). Quirky shape aside, this camera captures beautiful panoramic images. I often use it to shoot large groups, environmental portraits and ceremonies.

   



Holga

Take a second look, yep, the Holga is made of plastic. Despite the fact that it's technically a toy, this camera is one of my favorites for getting timeless party and exit shots.

   



Crown Graphic

News photographers popularized the Crown Graphic back in the 1940s and '50s. tIt's the largest piece of equipment in my bag. I love using this camera to create beautiful, large-format polaroids, which provide a timeless keepsake for the bride and groom.

   



Canon 5D Mark III

The Canon 5D Mark II is the only digital camera I use. It gives me the versatility to photograph the full range of wedding festivities. This is the camera I used to shoot a billboard in Times Square, and it'll be there at the wedding, making sure I get that shot of your grandma dancing the night away. My assistant also shoots a 5D Mark II at the reception, ensuring all of the night's special moments are documented.
