“I discovered my parent’s wedding album as a young photography student. I was struck by the exquisite craftsmanship of these photos. Wedding photographers in 1951 worked with 4×5 Speed Graphic cameras which only took one sheet of film at a time. They had to make each shot count since they maybe shot 40 photos for the whole day.

Since finding these photos I have gone on to shoot over 200 weddings, including loads of celebs and fascinating couples. I still think of the photographers from the 40’s and 50’s as the high water mark in the industry.”
