ROB AND RACHEL'S VINTAGE CAMERA WEDDING

When I hired Rob Baynard to collaborate with me on a self-promotion video in late Spring, he gave me a smile and said, "That's funny as I'm going to need your services as well." I'm a retired wedding photographer but that being said, I couldn't refuse Rob's request that I capture images of his July wedding to his longtime girlfriend Rachel Alderson. They are preparing to relocate to Chelsea so Rachel can begin fashion studies at Parsons School of Design so they were doing a courthouse wedding in St. Petersburg. Rob's instructions were specific — he wanted me to capture the ceremony and their time together prior to the evening reception using very little of my digital cameras. "I don't want you to shoot digital... I want you to shoot film, black and white, and Polaroid, anything you like," he requested.

It was a great concept and I was excited to break out the Mamiya 6, Polaroid SE, Polaroid 600 and Nikon F100. Below are the highlights along with the camera/film combinations. When I delivered the finished product to Rob last week, I presented him with 16 silver gelatin fiber prints along with the negatives and contact sheets. All were hand processed and hand printed. It's a fading art but I like to think that this work had more value to Rob and Rachel than anything I could've ever done with a digital camera.
