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!

2016 – Christopher Huston Photography

Just one of those Photos I like…

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.

So tonight I met with a great couple to talk about their wedding date.  On the way home, I was treated to many gorgeous views of the sun setting behind the clouds, first over the blueberry fields, then over Atsion Lake, and then over an empty corn field.  I did stop to take a few photos, but they were all with my Nikon F4s on Kodak Portra, so I’ll have to wait for those images.  It got me thinking about some of the amazing sunsets I’ve seen over the years, including this one…
