So you’re thinking about film photography

As mentioned in my FAQ, film lends a unique look to wedding photography you can’t get with digital. However, what does film actually look like? Take a look below!

If you like the feel of the following photographs, you like the look of film photography. A 'Film Add On' means adding 2 rolls of 35mm film (about 36 frames per roll) OR medium format film (about 16 frames per roll), and can be tacked on to any wedding photography package. Film photos really shine in our Colorado outdoor weddings, but if that doesn’t describe your wedding, we can certainly chat about whether or not I’d recommend this add-on for your wedding day. For example, if you’re getting married inside of a dark chapel that needs the assistance of an external flash, I may recommend sticking with digital. Our Colorado weather may also turn for the worst, and give us a rainy wedding day- that’ll be a scenario for when the digital equipment is best. Otherwise, film photography can capture most other weddings. After all, film is all we had for more than 100 years!

I should also mention that when I'm shooting the film frames, I'm also switching back to my digital cameras every few shots in case the old film cameras don't give us what we want.

The following wedding photos were made from a variety of film cameras including a ‘point and shoot’, Pentax 645n / 67 medium format cameras, Leica M2 / M3 35mm cameras, and a Hasselblad H1.

The other day... I went on a date... with a girl! And instead of having a candle-lit dinner and talking about mortgages, we climbed trees! And jumped into rivers!
