On Film: Kevin and Stephen's Danfords Wedding

On Film: Kevin and Stephen's Danfords Wedding

Not too long ago I shared Kevin and Stephen's wedding with all of you. Well, I just received their film scans, and they're gorgeous. (Y'all know how much I love film.) I am SO happy with how these turned out even though we were shooting at midday with NO shade!
For most photographers shooting digital, this is where we start hyperventilating and run for open shade, or it's time to break out the extra flash for fill. But on a dock with limited space, that wasn't an option... With film: No shade + bright sun = NO PROBLEM! This was a true test for film's latitude in these situations. It passed with flying colors.

Port Jefferson was the PERFECT backdrop for these photos, and Kevin and Stephen (now officially the Juliano's) were absolutely AMAZING to photograph! I cannot wait to see what adventures they go on in their journey together.

The technical: All were scanned by Indie Film Lab in Alabama. Shot with either a Mamiya 645afd with an 80mm 2.8 or 55mm 2.8 or a Fuji GS645 with a 75mm 3.4. All on Kodak Portra 400 +1 and exposed for shadows.

Kevin and Stephen- A Danfords, Port Jefferson, NY Wedding

Kevin and Stephen planned their wedding for over a year... Now, THEY'RE MARRIED! (You can see their engagement session here.)

Right before Kevin and Stephen traveled up to New York, Pennsylvania overturned their ban on gay marriage!! PERFECT TIMING! (Perfect wedding present ever, Pennsylvania. Well done.) They were actually featured on the local news:

 
 

Saturday, Heather and I traveled up to Port Jefferson, New York for Kevin and Stephen's wedding on Sunday. If you have never been to Port Jeff, GO! It's absolutely wonderful. Also, go Fifth Season and have their Parmesan Fries. To die for.

Sunday was the grand wedding. The wedding and reception was held at Danfords Hotel and Marina right on the water in Port Jeff, and the setting could not be more perfect.

Here is their wedding teaser video from Michael Joseph Films:

Kevin and Stephen- I know you'll be reading this in between flights on your way to your Disney honeymoon. I hope you have an absolutely wonderful time. You guys are one of my all time favorite couples. Seriously. Looking at these photos makes my heart happy, and I hope it does the same for you.

Here are some of my favorites from the day (film blog post will be coming soon):

Heather and Ruth- Thank you so much for shooting along side me for this adventure to Long Island!!
