Leah and Chris’s Wedding at Johnson’s Corner Farm in Medford – NJ – Christopher Huston Photography

So have you ever been to Johnson’s Corner Farm in Medford during the busy spring, summer, and fall seasons?  A full Farm Market, playgrounds, blueberry picking, ice cream and fresh baked snacks, sweet Jersey corn, hayrides, apple picking, and Christmas bonfires!

What do they do in the winter months, you might ask?  Well, they completely transform the Farm Market into a warm country setting for a family wedding!  Leah and Chris were married in February, and I have to say that I was completely shocked at the AMAZING way the Market was utterly redesigned into a stunningly beautiful venue!  The attention to detail – family furniture was brought in, table skirts made from neckties, cozy lighting, a beer tap wall, food stations, games to play – it was an incredible setting for a memorable wedding!  I was so proud and excited that Leah and Chris chose me to photograph their evening!  Just a handful of my favorites are below…

As I sat on the edge of a field last Thursday morning, watching the sun rise through some clouds and running a test roll through the newly acquired Nikon F3, it dawned on me.  No buttons.  No thumbwheels.  No white balance.  No metering mode.  No menus.  No lcd readouts.  No distracting little screen on the back.  No auto focus.  No brackets in the viewfinder.  No image sizes.  No file formats.  No advance mode.  Just load your roll of film, turn the aperture to your f-stop and dial in your shutter speed up top.  It was simple, it was pure.  It was photography with the freedom from all that photography stuff.

That test roll is going out to process today – when it gets back I’ll post my favorite one here.

Here it is – my favorite from the first test roll of Kodak Portra 800…

Beauty and simplicity, two things I love about the outdoors.  I see this tree every Sunday evening as I drive home from dinner at my mother’s house.  I sometimes will slow down to admire it during my drive, but this particular evening, the light was just right.  I had to stop.

Images like this are what continue to motivate me to shoot all of my own photographs with film.  The texture and depth are just gorgeous.  I made this photograph with my Nikon F5 loaded with Kodak Portra 400.

 

Kelsey and Mike’s Wedding at Bonnet Island Estate – 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!

OK, so technically this isn’t a local venue, but for me, growing up in Tabernacle, Long Beach Island was kind of like my “home beach.”  Oh yeah, I spent many, many, many weekends driving down to Beach Haven to sit on the beach at Taylor Ave.  Just before heading home, I’d hit Panzones for a couple of slices or maybe Crust and Crumb for an elephant ear!  So when local Medford bride Kelsey called me about her Bonnet Island Estate wedding, I couldn’t wait to make the quick drive down to LBI.  I love fall weddings – OK, the truth is I like COOL weddings!  The day was cool and crisp for photos, which made all the colors pop.  Bonnet Island Estate, as usual, did not disappoint.  I always run out of time before I can get a chance to use all of the locations I love there.  I had a great day shooting with Kelsey and Mike, here are just a FEW of my favorites…
