Kenilworth Castle Wedding – August 2013

UK Leica Wedding Photography

Coventry Wedding Photographer – Here are some more images from Lord and Lady Kenilworth’s wedding at Kenilworth Castle using my Leica M9 camera. I used my newly purchased Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 ASPH ii lens on the M9 all day under all conditions. Bright direct contrasty sunlight through to almost no light after the sun set. It was a one camera one lens for most of the day and this was a first to me and a real joy. I felt so mobile and focused without distraction of whether to change lens or not before each photo. I had my Nikon D800 DSLR with the Samyang 85mm f1.4 manual lens on for telephoto low light shots during the speeches and a Samyang 14mm f2.8 manual lens for a few wide angle shots at the end of the day. The D800 didn’t come out until after the evening meal and even then I continued to use the Leica M9 with some off camera flash for the dancing.

Since the wedding I have purchased a Leica M mount wide angle lens – Voigtlander 15mm f4.5 Super Wide Heliar. (Instead of the Samyang 14/2.8). I also have the distraction of now owning a Leica Elmar 135mm f4 for Leica telephoto shots (in good light). I then have both the Leica Summilux ASPH 50mm f1.4 and Leica Summicron 50mm f2 v5 for quality 50mm focal length shots (AND the Zeiss ZM Sonnar 50mm f1.5 and Zeiss ZM Planar 50mm f2 lenses). The ‘Lux’ will be great for low light when I need extra reach and for portraits. I use the ‘Cron’ on my 35mm rangefinder film camera at the moment. I use a Voigtlander Bessa R3A for film photography and that accepts any of my Leica M lenses.

I will decide the Leica lenses for wedding photography for 2014 after using each lens more first for model and fashion photography where I get chance to see how each lens performs in different conditions.
