Wedding | Last Updated: December 15, 2020

Hi all! We are Maria and Sergio, wedding and editorial photographers (among other things) in antiwedding. This adventure begins in Burgos (Spain) and continues all over the world – wherever the couple takes us.

Photography makes us happy. The workflow is basically oriented to get natural images with the best light possible, to try to show a part of every story, and to give our aesthetic point of view.

We started photography shooting film, when there were no digital cameras, and nowadays we still shoot in medium format and 35mm. We often use the Hasselblad 503CW and (The Tank) Pentax 67 for editorial and personal projects, but our main camera is the Contax 645 and Contax 80mm f/2 Zeiss Planar. Bokeh and tones of this lens are orgasmic.

We love using Fuji Pro 400h, perfect film with little extra fine grain of texture and great latitude, Kodak Portra 800 and the classic Kodak Tri-X 400 as well.

When traveling always carry the Contax G2 with Contax 28mm f/2.8 Biogon the fantastic Contax 45mm f/2 Planar, and Contax 90mm f/2.8 Sonnar. This combo is autofocus, very light, with the best quality, and valid for any type of trip.

For weddings we have Nikon digital equipment. Nikon D800 bodies and a variety of lenses that allow us to shoot in any situation that we have. We always use prime lenses that allow us to have the best quality.

Depending on the wedding moment, Sergio uses the Nikon 35mm f/1.4 G AF-S and Nikon 85mm f/1.4 D and María the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art and Nikon 45mm f/2.8 PC-E, a very special lens with infinite creative options. We usually use flash units separate from the camera, a Nikon SB-910 and Nikon SB-700 that we shoot with PocketWizard Plus II unit.

We also use a Nikon 16mm f/2.8 AF Fisheye and Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 when we shoot landscapes, the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lens if we need a longer range and a Nikon 105mm f/2.8 VR for details shots.

In lighting equipment also used Elinchrom Ranger RX Speed AS when we need powerful and 2x Elinchrom Ranger Quadra to travel light and we have various light modifiers to use as needed.

    Hi guys,

    Great list of gear!

    I’m on the Hasselblad 503CW and Pentax 6×7 (tank is the perfect description!)

    Question: i am trying to sort out a simple off camera flash set up and am lost as to which gear would be best suited for use with both cameras. Any recco’s? Still early into my research, but finding it tricky to get any clear direction.

    I am sorry for the really stupid question :D How do you manage the different ISO needs? For example – you load the highest ISO film and then work with A and S in the different lighting situations or you load different ISOs in different cameras and use one camera in the church, the other one in the church yard (for example)? I just recently started shooting film, and I am very far away from incorporating it in my clients’ sessions, but I want to learn! Thank you :)

    Awesome work!! How do you find using the Sigma 24mm Art? I’m looking at getting one for wedding photography =)

    Superb work by this duo, backed up by great gear. Thanks for sharing this inspiration :)

    I think your work is amazing! Out of curiosity, what is your film processing flow like? I still shoot a roll of film now and then for fun, but it is always really expensive to get developed and scanned.
