I often get asked if I can shoot in a vintage style. It is an interesting question because vintage
means different things to different people. I love “classic old style photography” that you find in the 40’s and 50’s. Sometimes it’s de-saturated a bit, sometimes it’s black and white, and sometimes it’s just a half tone of
color. What all of these styles have in common is that they are based on solid photographic principles. Images which look like they have a film over them are improperly exposed and lack a real sense of detail especially in the whites. Sun flare can be really beautiful when used properly and when you don’t lose the detail in the image.
You can achieve a vintage look in images by setup as well as post processing. For weddings I think to
get a true vintage feel you, have to theme that throughout your entire wedding including your flower dress and location. Location is key to getting a really cool vintage feel. I photographed a wedding at photographed a
wedding at the historic Rockefeller Hall. The entire vibe was very vintage style.
So here are a few of my vintage style images from the Rockefeller Wedding that are my favs.
Here are some of my other favorite vintage inspired images.
