Nestled in New Haven, MO is a new wedding venue! It was the perfect setting for Mollie + Aaron’s refined wedding in the beautiful countryside. As I’ve mentioned in many recent posts, film is my latest adventure. This was my first wedding really managing a mix of both film + digital images, what other photographers like to call “hybrid photography.” So, I thought it would be neat to share my progress and love for this medium in Mollie + Aaron’s wedding post. 🙂
Some will not be able to notice, but those with a creative eye will be able to discern the difference in color + skin tones that film images create. Shooting film does not change my style, and I don’t plan to alter my digital work to mimic a film image. When I first began shooting, I would shoot and shoot and shoot thinking I would need all these images, and that’s what makes a client happy. But over the years, quality over quantity has proven to be the best way to approach a wedding day or really any type of session. I start by working my standard poses to get a couple comfortable, and then really the rest is up to them. I give them pointers + tips and let them naturally go with it. I think this is what attracts other couples to my work. My couples really are relaxed + having fun!
The beautiful color-rendering comes at a price – the film is a little pricey (and in somewhat short supply!) and film processing is expensive! But what’s really neat is that film images can now also be made into digital scans, which will definitely appeal to my clients!
