Most professional wedding photographers are not thrilled when someone brings up mirrorless cameras. I understand – the concept is relatively new, and there may be some distrust towards these cameras’ performance. Especially in demanding conditions such as shooting a wedding. But an example by Kevin Mullins proves them wrong. He shot an entire wedding with a Fujifilm X-Pro2 and published a video which may break down misconceptions.
Kevin is a UK-based documentary wedding photographer. He published a short stop motion video composed of his wedding shots from the South of France. The entire wedding was shot using two Fujifilm X-Pro2 cameras. So, no DSLRs whatsoever. What’s more, the photos are completely unedited. This way you can see the real results of mirrorless cameras without the help of post-processing programs. Some photos are fantastic, some are average, but remember – there are around 4000 shots. And none of us ever delivers all the shots we took, we only choose the best ones.
In my opinion, the mirrorless camera attributed to the technical quality of the images. I’m not sure I could tell if they were taken by a DSLR or a mirrorless. Also, Kevin captured really wonderful moments and made photos that look like a set of frames from a movie. When all this is brought together, the couple got some fine photos to remember their special day. And the rest of us got a proof that a mirrorless camera can handle wedding shots really well.
