Unlike some, I actually had a good experience in high school so it's always great to be contacted by old friends. Mackenzie and I went to high school together and she asked me to capture her morning preparations and first look for her Philadelphia wedding to Erek. Happy to oblige, I hopped on a train from NYC and arrived in Philly for a beautiful fall day in October.
I captured the day both on Super 8 and a couple of packs of Instax instant film with my custom Polaroid 110B camera. The instant photos always have a certain charm to them that digital doesn't quite have. Plus being able to show the couple the photo mere minutes after taking it is really sweet.
It all came out beautifully as we strolled around Philly and went to the Swann Fountain for the first look and then the to the Franklin Institute for a few photos. Philly treated me well and it was a great escape from NYC for a day to shoot this for an old friend!
