Black and white film wedding portraits

You can take the lady out of art school…

But you cannot take art school out of the lady.

With every couple we photograph, we include two rolls of black and white film of the portrait session. Part of this is we love the medium and it’s also just really fun to bust out the Hasselblad now and again. Here are 3 portraits from these sessions that we love from this summer.

    I am interested to know which film you prefer for portrait sessions. I have been using Ilford XP2 400 (C-41) in my Mamiya RB67 and would like to explore other options. Does not necessarily have to be C-41 since I can also get standard b&w processed.

  • Chad, I really like Ilford film. I tend to go with Delta 100, 400 and 3200 in my bag so I’m prepared to shoot in any situation. The XP2 isn’t bad, you just really have to rate it at 200-320 to get a decent exposure on the film-it tends to run thin. Hope that helps!
