Remember the 1960s? Well, this photo style is one way magazines and newspapers used to report everything from moon landings to fashion layouts. Add in the sepia tones and you have a sense of timelessness ideal for wedding photos.
All these images are from a recent photo shoot I did with Berkeley photographer Bill Smoot. While we used a few different methods to photograph seven gowns in the collection, I particularly love this documentary style. If you do too consider incorporating a few shots done in this technique into your wedding portfolio. Best results for this kind of work are finding a photographer like Bill who still works with film. I'm finding some still use film as well as digital.
