3-20-09 Sheryl + Rob

This was an exciting event for us. We were asked to shoot the wedding of a former advertising colleague, turned good friend. She has an eye for photography and has been "in the business" for several years. She has a sharp attention for detail and knows exactly what she wants, down to the "film" look and feel of yester year. She wanted for her black + white images to look like they were shot on Kodak T-Max 3200 for the grain, I added a little Tri-X 400 to the mix, to give it that sweet light grey half tone to make the black + white subtle and beautiful. The ceremony was held at nearly dust as were all of the formal portraits, so the ambient light is a wee bit on the bluish side so I pulled those pack around to a warmer tone, my favorite, with some yellows and contrast. Reminiscent of Kodak Portra 400VC. I think the results are outstanding. I'm really excited to show them off and most excited to unveil them to my beautiful bride. Thank you, Sheryl for trusting us with your vision.
