One of my favorite things to do at a wedding is to use my Hasselblad, an older manual film camera which shoots medium format 6x6cm film. There’s a quality to the images it produces that makes me (and my clients) happy. I love the fact you really need to take your time framing, metering, and manually focusing on your subject. I of course love my digital cameras but the chance to shoot a few frames with a film camera is something I’ve always enjoyed. Here’s a couple images from a truly beautiful wedding I recently photographed in Connecticut.
For anyone who checks my wedding website here, you might have noticed that I haven’t updated in a long long time. I’ve been very busy traveling and photographing a lot of food recently, working on cookbooks and shooting for several food based publications (such as Bon Ap and Food&Wine). I’m still photographing a good amount of weddings especially with the summer season approaching. I’ve been dabbling with instagram a lot recently and you can see more of my work through my account @danielkrieger
This specific image was shot with my iPhone last week (as all of my work featured on my instagram account is). Amy looked amazing with her vintage style dress and veil at her Brooklyn wedding at the Liberty Warehouse.
Leah and Greg were so fun, cute, and easygoing it was such a pleasure working with them at the New York Botanical Garden, one of my favorite New York venues to photograph a wedding. At one point in the night I had them sneak away from the dance floor for a few minutes to catch this image. Here’s to many more years of happiness for these two, cheers!
This past weekend I photographed the beautiful wedding of Stacie and Craig at the William Aiken House in Charleston, South Carolina. These two had great smiles and just exuded happiness, it was a pleasure to spend the day working with them both. Here’s a quick photo we took right after the ceremony.
I was going through Yolanda and Gboyega’s wedding photos today and this image stood out to me. I stopped and looked at it awhile. I love the timeless look of this couple and how Yolanda is giving the camera her attention and Gboyega is paying his to Yolanda, as he should be. I really enjoyed working with this couple at the Glen Island Harbour Club earlier this year. Congratulations to them on their wedding and thank you for choosing me as your photographer.
