I’ve always loved taking photos. All the cameras I grew up with were film. I resisted digital technologies for a long time. I finally embraced them and was amazed how my Sony digital camera showed me the photo right away or how I could put all of my CDs on my iPod. I was a digital convert. lol  I’ve been shooting digital photography professionally for 5 years now. I love the results I’ve gotten, but I’m always drawn back to the looks of film, whether in my film emulation presets for editing or actual film stocks. This year I decided to get back into shooting film for personal projects and to work into my portrait and wedding jobs. I purchased a used Nikon F4s 35mm camera to use lenses I currently owned and some Kodak T-MAX B&W, Portra 160 & 400 film stocks to get started. This post will contain some of the 1st shots from the first roll of T-MAX B&W. Nothing too exciting came from these, but I’m sticking to it and seeing what will come. These were developed by the Darkroom. Let me know what you think of these.

I love being a Delaware Engagement Photographer! It provides me the honor of documenting one of the most important days in a couple’s life. Meet Anna & Nick. They currently live in Colorado, but will be getting married next year at Bellevue Hall in Wilmington, DE.  They chose Old New Castle for the setting of their engagement session while they were in town for the holidays and working on the wedding. It was a a little chilly and windy, but we were able to get some really nice photos. We ended the session with a brisk piggy back ride. I had a blast with them and can’t wait for their big day! Below are some of my favorites from the session.

I love being a Delaware Family Photographer! It affords me the honor of documenting a special time in a family’s life. Meet the Doreen. Doreen wanted a session with her daughter since time has been flying by and their lives have been evolving. We selected Brecknock Park for the location since it offers some nice backgrounds in a small area. We walked around getting some great photographs of them alone & together. I had a great time and it was honor to document this moment for them. Below are some of my favorite photos.

I love being a Maryland Wedding Photographer! It affords me the honor of documenting one of the most important days in a couple’s life. Meet Melissa & Mitch. I shot their engagement photos earlier in the year in Baltimore, MD and it was a blast albeit freezing! I met them at the hotel for the getting ready photos. The girls where sweet, the guys were nuts! We did a first look session before the ceremony and took care of some family photos as well. The Mansion at Valley Country Club offers a gorgeous setting! The ceremony was very nice. You can really tell how much they love each other. The reception was super fun and they had a blast dancing and mingling with their guests. I had a great time meeting all of their family and friends & it was an honor to be a part of their special day. Below are some of my favorite photos.
