Oregon Coast Wedding

Taken with a Polaroid 600 I found at a flea market while exploring one day on the coast.

As most of you know I was on the West Coast this past week watching Andrew’s brother tie the knot to his longtime girlfriend Jaimi. They got married on a cliff on the coast of Yachats, Oregon and it was a very picturesque wedding. I didn’t bring my digital gear out – too much to travel across the country with – so I only had my Canon A-1 with a 50mm lens and a handful of Fuji Superia 400. I’ve never shot a wedding in film and I’m happy with the way these turned out. It was one of the prettiest weddings I’ve ever been to. Congratulations! ❤

  1. I love these! I recently had some stuff that I shot on Fujifilm 200 developed, and I think I am starting to fall for Fuji!

    • Fuji generally has much cooler colours than Kodak. I always relied on it for color until the new Portra series were released and the Fuji Pro formula was apparently changed. The Fuji Superia line is really cheap but has fine grain and realistic, neutral colours. Unlike Kodak, as in the examples above, it can be shot in tungsten lighting without as dramatic an orange shift.

      Kaitlin, did you edit your colours to look like this or are they out of the lab for the most part? If out of the lab, it seems that either your film was expired or the lab’s chemistry was exhausted because there is a pronounced magenta shift. That really makes the blues pop though and I particularly enjoy all the technical aspects of the next to final two shots of you and Andrew partly for that reason.
