Vintage Video

Kristin Vining

Photographer Richard Israel (pictured) is changing the lens on traditional wedding day videography. By shooting with primarily black-and-white film, and just a roll or two of color, he creates an eight-millimeter marriage movie. The ten- to twenty-minute silent film is mostly monochrome and accompanied by romantic classics like "La Vie en Rose" by chanteuse Édith Piaf.

Israel, who already takes an organic direction with his still photography, has long been an admirer of analog approaches. "The very nature and look of the film makes it vintage and nostalgic," says Israel. "The couples love it." We love it, too: a wedding day with an old-fashioned take is nothing but timeless.
