FILM Projects – Cape May Wedding – Christopher Huston Photography

First, a shout out to my dear friend Allison at Allison Anne Studios – she needed some second shooting help for a recent Cape May wedding and gave me a call.  Sure!  I love Cape May weddings!  I had wanted to brush up on some FILM shooting techniques, so I asked her if it was alright if I brought a few rolls of film to shoot while photographing for her.

Yup – FILM!  Beautiful film!  There is a softness and elegance to film.  There’s a subtle tone to it.  Plus, there’s the release from that nagging little screen on the back of digital cameras.  I love shooting film – I see more and more rolls in my future!

Thank you to Allison for letting me fire off a few rolls during her wedding shoot!

Ashley and Steven’s Wedding at Peter Shields Inn in Cape May – NJ – Christopher Huston Photography

When I first talked to Ashley and Steven on the phone and they told me they were getting married in Cape May, I though “Awesome, I love Cape May!”  But once we started to talk about what kind of wedding they were going to have, I got even more excited – this was going to be just an awesome event!  Casual, laid-back, intimate, elegant – everything I love.  But…  once I arrived in Cape May on that crystal clear October Sunday, and then saw the Peter Shields Inn, well, I was just in heaven…!!

My newest Sample Wedding Album from Leather Craftsmen – NJ – Christopher Huston Photography

A gorgeous new 10×10 sized 3500 series album arrived to me just in time for a recent Open House I attended.  Using my Modern Layout style, I chose a great group of photos from Becky and Matt’s June wedding to be bound in Countryside Book Cloth.  A simple white imprint on the front cover (using my favorite ‘Mr. and Mrs.’ imprint) added the finishing touch!
Thank you again Leather Craftsmen – you never disappoint!

Now, I’ll get in trouble if I don’t mention that the wedding day itself was a beautiful day, too!  We started at The Carriage House in Galloway, on to St. Nicholas Tolentine in Atlantic City, made a quick stop on the AC Boardwalk, and headed back to The Carriage House for a fantastic party!

Guys getting ready at HOTEL ML  –  Girls getting ready at THE MADISON  –  Ceremony and reception at THE MADISON  –  Portrait location on the DELAWARE RIVER  –  uplighting by ANDREW at BACKROOM STUDIOS (simply the very best, most professional, as well as elegant and understated room lighting out there!)

Just one of those Photos that I like…

Nikon F5  –  Kodak Portra 400 FILM  –  20-35mm f2.8 lens  –  250th @ f4.5


Every time I go to Manhattan, I’ll find something I’ve never seen before.  January 28th was no exception.  Now, this is a BIG building, how have I never seen this!?  I guess you simply can’t see the trees, for the forest.  Or, the less poetic excuse would be that I’ve never walked down 8th Ave. from 42nd St.  I felt compelled to take a photo of this building because, back in the heyday of photojournalism (we’re talking in the 60’s and photographers with the original Nikon F, not the wedding trend) if you could say you shot for the New York Times, you’d made it!  Plus, it’s an excellent example of perspective – that was one of my photo lessons and projects in Basic Photography back in high school!
