This wedding was hands down my favorite. Now, I know I shouldn’t have favorites but I got to fully flex my Vintage Lens skills here and, in doing so, I believe I got the best images I’ve ever taken at this wedding.
The above image was taken with a classic Nikon. The Nikkor P 105mm f2.5. I’ve been falling in love with vintage lenses this season and this lens rocks. I have been using a ton of vintage glass from Takumar and Nikon this season and it’s becoming my preferred method of shooting.
There are many many reasons why I have included the Sony and Fujifilm mirrorless cameras into my collection but the primary reason is Focus Peaking. Focus Peaking allows me to visually see what areas are in “focus” at any given moment. This is because of the electronic viewfinder and it’s a complete game changer. I can now photograph a wedding with the best glass that has ever been made.
The wedding took place at the Emel House located in the Scenic Beach National Park.
“Vintage 1911 home with quaint country atmosphere. Beautiful setting with garden, expansive lawn, lush landscape, charming gazebo, and spectacular view of Hood Canal. Romantic setting for weddings and receptions, also excellent for retreats and company picnics” ~ From the official website for Scenic Beach Park.
