Trying new things - with film

Back in 2006 was when I got my first camera. It was an old 35mm film SLR, after shooting with it for about a year I upgraded to my first digital SLR camera. Now, as I've been experimenting and playing around with film in a little more depth, I went back to that first 35mm camera and recently shot a roll of Ilford Delta black and white film (for all you technical people who are curious to know what type of film this is), Which, shooting black and white film in this camera was kind of a big deal to me because, I have never shot black and white film with it before, despite having it for many years. Normally, when you get 36 exposures on a roll, you're lucky if 10 of those turn out well. Well I am really pleased with this roll, and here are a few of my favorite shots. Enjoy!

Mary and Eric Wedding (full)

This was such a joy filled day. Love was so present in the eyes of Mary and Eric. Their friends and family expressed fellowship and joy for them throughout the entire evening. I am so glad I was able to be apart of this joyful wedding when my two friends became one. I met with Mary and Eric this evening to proof the pictures with them and I love the reactions that newly weds have to their wedding photos! The laughter, the smiles, and the jokes that couples make when seeing their wedding photos for the first time is why I love my job so much! I feel so blessed to be able to capture moments that Mary and Eric didn't notice or forgot about during their wedding, and to be there when they first see those moments in black and white and color.

Thank you Mary and Eric!! You two are wonderful, I'm so happy for you!
