Jamie & Randy’s Bridal Tintype Portrait

The pressure was on. Jamie and Randy chose to forgo a professional photographer at their wedding so they could invest in something more unusual. Randy had his heart set on having a tintype wedding portrait made and after poking around on the Internet, he found us. (Yes, the irony of looking for tintype photography on the Internet was not lost on me).

Luckily we had a beautiful warm day in which to make our plates. Jamie and Randy looked adorable in their wedding clothes and embraced the methodical process of wet plate photography whole-heartedly.

We made several plates, but this one is my favorite. The pose came from the newlyweds’ themselves. They wanted to juxtapose, Jamie’s cuddliness with Randy’s more stoic side.

I think this image captures their relationship beautifully
