Thomas & Jacquelynn | Lokal Hotel Philly
Thomas & Jacquelynn | Lokal Hotel Philly

A few weeks ago, I shot an engagement shoot at the Lokal Hotel Philly. Thomas and Jacquelynn booked Sandi and I to photograph their December 2017 wedding and wanted to do something a little different for their engagement shoot. Having already had some photos taken outdoors, they wanted something a little more intimate and with a totally different feel than typical engagement photos. We were originally going to do the shoot in the studio, but since we are still working on remodeling things we started looking around at some of the more original looking hotels in Philly. The Lokal Hotel had exactly the look we were going for.

I shot the majority of this shoot on film, a mix of Portra800 and Fuji400, shot on the Contax645. Developed and scanned by Goodman Film Lab. A handful of shots in here were shot on the Leica M10, which makes for a great combo with the Contax.
