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.  Congress Hall would be a perfect film backdrop, with its pastel yellow color!  I clearly remember the videographer snickering at me as I loaded a roll into my Nikon F5, “that’s not actually film, is it!!??”

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!

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!

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…!!

Looking Back! – at Beth and Luke’s Wedding in Cape May – NJ – Christopher Huston Photography

I had a new bride call me yesterday to ask a few questions about her upcoming Cape May wedding, which made me think back to one of the best beach weddings I ever photographed in Cape May.  This one goes a few years back…

This was Beth and Luke from opposite sides of the globe, but let me tell you, they put together a casual, cool-themed and awesomely detailed wedding way before casual, cool-themed and awesomely detailed weddings were the hot new thing, and certainly before those weddings were so ridiculously overdone the way they are today in our region.  Every time I look back on their wedding I see the influences of weddings from out West (where they were from at the time) and the attention to little details that were so subtly adapted.  They were married on the beach just before sunset in Cape May, and had their reception in a little bungalow just up the dunes.  They hired a great little rock-n-roll band to jam tunes across the beach until late in the night.  And one of the highlights of the evening was their gooey ice cream wedding cake that someone took out of the freezer way too early, thinking it was a regular cake that had to defrost!  Beth and Luke, I hope you’re still out there.  I made a sample album from their wedding, and a little time later, I made a second, even-better, sample album.  I could easily (and just very well may) make a third album highlighting the photography and album styles I’ve moved back to.

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!
