Hasselblad Wedding Photography

Todays Photo of the Day is a recent film photograph from a wedding of mine in Central Park. I love being able to shoot some film at weddings, it really slows down the process for both me and the couple. When you’re shooting on film each shot counts (a roll of film is 12 photos which could take a half hour to shoot as compared to 12 digital photos which could take 12 seconds to shoot) So I want to really be spot on with my focus and carefully compose the photograph. I let the couple know we’re slowing the pace…. I think its nice for them considering the rush and flow of a wedding day. Jeff and Ashley hung out with me for a few minutes after we let the wedding party go back to cocktail hour at The Central Park Boathouse in NYC. This was taken with a Hasselblad which is a manual medium format camera. The sun was almost gone and I only had a few minutes left to catch this one… I thought it came out quite nice.

Tribeca Rooftop – NYC Wedding Photography

I sometimes get future brides and grooms asking if they will make my blog. I tell them that I wish I could blog all the work I do but in actuality I only put up maybe 10-15% of what I photograph because I’m so busy (luckily)..I want to be better about it but its a balance of keeping up with current work, meeting with people for future work, and also trying to balance in a personal life in there! 🙂  So I’m telling you this because this wedding is now two years old but I haven’t stopped thinking about it since the day I photographed it, knowing I wanted to put it on the blog..and I’m finally getting to it today! (yahhh *cheeers*).

I’ll never forget the day that Stacey and Benjamin came to my apartment to talk about their wedding. Benjamin walked into my apartment with a 6 pack of beers and I laughed. No one has ever brought beer to one of my meetings but I thought that was pretty cool so we popped open a few beers and talked about their wedding photography. I knew I wanted this wedding from the moment we started talking.. they were excited about doing an engagement session in Central Park and then having their wedding at the TriBeca Rooftop in NYC.

Their wedding day was a gorgeous event from start to finish. Stacy looked stunning in her Romona Keveza dress and Ben looked perfect in his Calvin Klein tuxedo. We walked around Tribeca to start the day, capturing some wonderful moments between the two of them and then enjoyed the rest of the day at the Tribeca Rooftop which was an awesome venue I definitely recommend! Thank you to Ryan Dearth my second photographer who did a wonderful job. Enjoy these photos.
