RUSSELL+JENELLE

Back in June I shot a wedding down in Oregon with my friend, Jay Eads.
Neither of us are primarily film photographers, but Jay’s clients specifically requested that we shoot it.
Sounds like a deal to me.

Shot on film. Hasselblad 500c/m, Mamiya RZ67, Canon EOS3 with Kodak Portra 400, Fuji 400H, and Ilford Delta 400 and HP5.
I tossed a couple of digital images in the mix as well.

    Beautiful! So awesome that you got that opportunity to shoot a film welding, absolutely love how they turned out. I'm tired of looking at "alien" eyes and over photoshopped pics that is happening in parts of the photography world. So so refreshing to see your work!

  • mike said:

    you need to shoot more film, brother.

  • dylan said:

    speechless. each and every frame.

  • Dale Lempa said:

    Great work! Love the texture and consistency from film.

  • sarah der said:

    I can't even talk about this post, okay!? I seriously can't. IT IS SERIOUSLY SO FLIPPING GOOD.

  • Dave said:

    Wonderful series of photos! Great emotional stuff, whether you shot it on film or digital is kinda beside the point. I do love, love, love the film look though.

  • These are so very different from what I'm use to seeing from you, but they are so so beautiful. Great job, Benji! :)

  • Zoe said:

    Ben, I actually started to browse the images, and then found myself having to make notes to remind myself of all my thoughts zooming around my head as I looked through this beautiful wedding - all those happy beautiful moments. I love the shot of the bride looking out the window with the beautiful subtle reflections, and the ripples of movement in the pond - I loved them all - and those beach shots - wow ! Stunning work x

  • Sarah said:

    So so beautiful, and I love how Oregon it looks, rain and mist and everything. Great job!

  • These are stunning. I especially love the shots of the bride through the window.

  • Jean said:

    Each frame is mesmerizing. Really blown away with this post.

  • Nora said:

    Beautiful!!!! Especially those shots on the beach.

  • Elissa said:

    Seriously, this is so gorgeous. The shots on the beach with their heads touching are perfect. It looks like an amazing day.

  • Priya Patel said:

    Wow, gorgeous film work Benj! Love the portraits on the beach - the light is just perfect.

  • Joseph said:

    B.E.A.Utiful.
    Film or not Ben, you know how to take pictures Boy.
    Congratulations Russell and Jenelle

  • So amazingly gorgeous! I love the light leaks peeking through here and there!

  • geneoh said:

  • sam said:

    really superb benj. great compositions and tones.

  • nadine said:

    beautiful eye, benj! i love the black and whites by the water.

  • love that black and white formal with the crazy tree! so awesome.

  • Love the colors and mood of this shoot. great work!

  • Soooo... I think you need to be shooting film more often. =)

  • This is gorgeous work - really love the feel of this :)

  • For someone who doesn't shoot film regularly you didn't have any problems picking up the medium.

    No matter how the pictures are made nothing beats great content and your work at this wedding has that in spades!

  • PJ Photos said:

    WOW! use film more often ;)

  • Tom Harmon said:

    Just found you work and it's blowing me away. I love the interaction between the couple and you capture it so perfectly.

  • Ashley said:

    I love this whole set - especially the portraits and the first shot of them standing with the officiant ... and the food, of course. :)

  • Neil Senior said:

    Truly inspiring set of images! Your work is mind blowing! ; )
