Why I chose Film Photography?

Ohhh my love of film photography is about to overflow in to words here. So why exactly why did I choose film photography? Film is completely authentic. It is the truest form of the art of photography. Film loves showing off light and color. When looking through photographs, if you find yourself thinking ‘why am so drawn to these?’ it is most likely because they are film photographs. Film captures things softly, not sharp and harsh like a digital photo.  

Art over profit with film photography

I love the purity of film. It is costly to shoot film, but, I am a purist and will gladly spend the exorbitant cost on film for my couples’ wedding day. Why? Simple. It gives my couples the best imagery. And I can deliver on what I promise – film photography. There are so many digital cameras and presets that give the film like look. However; I need to know I am giving my couples the most artistic side of my photography and me. And film allows me to do that! 

I want art over profit.

Only the best for my couples!!

I love being able to deliver my couples’ engagement session, wedding, lifestyle sessions either the day or the day after I receive my film scans from the film lab. I don’t have to do editing, and if I do it is always very minimal. This way my couples only have to wait for the 10-14 days it takes to have the film developed to see their photographs! I am able to have confidence that what I deliver is going to be spot on. 

Film photography is able to capture light in such a romantic way. Your photographs are dreamy, timeless, etherial photographs that will be looked back at for generations and always be relevant.
