Sainte Maxime

Stephanie was booked to video-shoot the beautiful wedding of Djuna and Olivier in Sainte Maxime, France. I was joining as a second shooter and assistant. We travelled from Brussels to Nice a little earlier and spent two days in Saint Tropez in the beautiful Villa la Begude run by a super-friendly German family – one highlight was the amazing french breakfast served in the garden. Our daughter had some new teeth breaking through and was a not always feeling too happy – as you can maybe see in the pictures.

Next stop was Sainte Maxime where we moved into the house that was booked by Art of Events - the wedding planner. Sophie and her team were already there and very busy preparing the wedding. The first evening was a reception at the parent's beautiful house overlooking the Golf of Saint Tropez, while the wedding was the following day at the beach. The pictures of the blog post are in the same order. My first job was to back up Stephanie and video shoot the important aspects of the weddings and ceremonie, maki sure thnge sound recording is working properly etc. Of course I had a film camera with me and shot some images whenever I could. The key moments are of course not covered as I was busy shooting video.
Mainly I was using the Pentax 645N with the standard 2.8/75mm, but I also packed the wide version of the Plaubel Makina – the w67. I only shot two rolls with this camera, but I loved the outcome. At the beach you will find some wide angle shots taken with the Makina. Film is mainly Fuji 400H, but 1 or 2 rolls Kodak Portra are included as well. Film was processed and scanned by Carmencita Film Lab. I would suggest you click on the first image to enlarge it and from there move forward through the set. The resulting video can be found on Stephanie’s website – click here!
