Holly and Vincent’s Wedding Session in Spring Lake – The Mill – Christopher Huston Photography

Holly and Vincent had a chilly November day with our first snow flurries of the year.  I love cooler weather!  I haven’t been to The Mill at Spring Lake in a long time, and it didn’t disappoint.  Holly and Vincent, their friends and their family, were all just great.  A fun crowd, we fit right in as we got rolling with some beautiful photos.  Holly and Vincent were such an attentive couple, they photographed just awesome together.  Which is why I chose this group of photos – I just wanted to highlight the two of them together!

Becky and Matt’s Wedding Photos at Batsto – Time and Light in NJ – Christopher Huston Photography

I am always very happy with the photographs I take, I always give 110%.  But, the 2 things I need the most for great photos are TIME and LIGHT – 2 things I don’t always get in abundance.  So what I’m going to do from now on is label some of my best Sessions with simply “Time and Light.”

Following our time at Batsto, we headed to Becky and Matt’s Hambone Farm for their intimate wedding ceremony.  Family and close friends celebrated under an open-air tent as games were played, stories were shared, and the fresh scent of surrounding blueberry farms wafted through the summer air.  What an awesome Wedding Session!

A huge thank you goes out to Wharton Sate Forest’s Batsto Historic Village for letting us use the grounds.  Both Becky & Matt and my studio were happy to stop by the Visitor Center on our way out to leave a generous donation.  I encourage all other couples and photographers to do the same.

I also had the time to shoot a few rolls of FILM for Becky and Matt – all of the square images in this post were photographed with my Hasselblad 501cm on Kodak Portra 400 FILM.

Something NEW for 2015 – B&W!

ChristopherHuston_ARTblog_BWEpson_MTCH9_0932B&W IS ON ITS WAY BACK!!  This will sound ridiculous, but I saw a movie that prominently featured B&W film.  It got me thinking about Kodak T-Max.  The whole idea in my head a few years ago when I purchased my Nikon F4s was to shoot primarily B&W film, hand process it, and then scan frames for printing with my dedicated film scanner.  It’s difficult to set up an actual chemical darkroom these days, but B&W prints from true monochromatic film can be digitally printed just as well as digital captures.

So, while I was in NYC back in January, I did some research into Epson’s line of high-end photo printers, and I found that they had some gorgeous new Fine Art papers that closely emulated what I remembered of printing and developing Kodak’s Ektalure G fiber papers in the darkroom.  These new papers have some richly textured and toned surfaces and heavy cotton bases.  The feel of these papers is just elegant!

So thank you Epson for running a special on your printers, as an Epson R3880 Photo Printer has joined my arsenal.  My hopes are to begin shooting more T-Max 100 and 400 films, to process that film by hand to get the best results as I used to do, scan in the best of the bunch, and print some gorgeous Fine Art B&W prints on the Epson.  I’m still dialing in the Epson – it takes a little work to get color profiles pinned down – but what I’ve seen so far is impressive!

Amanda and Nick’s Wedding at Brigalias – NJ – Christopher Huston Photography

Sure, I spent many years and many weekends photographing down the shore, but my office has always been right here in Medford!

Amanda and Nick had a stunning May afternoon for their wedding!  It had been quite some time since I had been over to Brigalia’s way, and man oh man, did they have a lot to work with!  I could have photographed everything in their new chapel – it was beautiful and bright in there!  You’ll recognize Amanda and Nick as my hockey rink Save the Date couple – I think some of those photos may be a little further back on the Blog pages…
