You may remember Jenna & Matt’s engagement session from not so long ago… In fact, there were two different versions posted (one digital and the other one of their film scans). I knew that their wedding at would not disappoint and it surely did not! Amazing venues like St. Ambrose Cathedral and the downtown Marriott combined with Jenna’s classic, yet trendy sense of style were sure to be a winning mix. Not to mention the fact that the two of them are just so effortlessly in sync with one another it makes them such a joy to photograph. I photographed both digital and film images of their wedding day, but could not help but put up a post containing solely film images after seeing how amazingly beautiful they all turned out.
I’m typically a huge stickler for sharp image, with a focus point that is intentional. More times than not, when I miss focus I’ll toss the image. On a rare occasion you get a keeper like this one. The following set of images are from their first look. The first image came out unintentionally out of focus, but I thought it was so beautiful and the missed focus almost seems to provide meaningful context in the situation as well. Two lives yet to be defined before they become one… as they touch, it all becomes clear.
Needless to say, I’m in love with how this shot turned out.
Keep watching for a full post of their wedding day with a combination of digital and film shots in the coming weeks. Their entire day was filled with beautiful moments, so much to share!
