FILM PHOTOGRAPHY AND WHY IT’S LOVED
As you prepare for your special day, I know you have a million things on your mind. But one decision that should be at the top of your list is how to capture your love story.
In this age of digital everything, it’s easy to overlook the beauty and nostalgia of film photography. That’s why I’m here to remind you that including film photography on your wedding day is a must.
Trust me, as a Fine Art Wedding Photography enthusiast, I’ve seen the magic that film can bring to your photos. Not only does it add a timeless quality, but it also captures the raw emotion and authenticity of your special moments. So let’s dive into why film photography should have a special place on your wedding day.
There’s a certain warmth and nostalgia associated with film photography that simply can’t be replicated with digital images. From the soft, dreamy tones to the subtle imperfections that add character and depth, film photos have a unique and romantic quality that is hard to find in digital photography. When you choose to capture your wedding on film, you’re preserving your memories in a way that is both classic and enduring.
Couples feel like they are more in the moment
When you opt for film photography, you and your partner can truly be in the moment on your wedding day. Film photography encourages a slower, more intentional approach to capturing your special day. With digital photography, it’s all too easy to take hundreds (or even thousands) of photos, hoping that a few turn out perfectly. However, when you shoot on film, each image becomes more precious, as you have a limited number of shots to capture the moments that matter most. This forces you to be more thoughtful and deliberate in your approach, resulting in images that are more meaningful and impactful.
More Intentional Approach from Your Photographer
Film photographers are often more intentional in their approach and have a better understanding of composition, lighting, and storytelling. They have a keen eye for capturing natural, candid moments and creating stunning portraits that truly reflect the essence of your love and your wedding day. These photographers take the time to carefully curate each image, resulting in a collection of one-of-a-kind photos that perfectly encapsulate the magic of your special day.
Another benefit of choosing film photography for your wedding is the unique and irreplaceable nature of the images. Unlike digital photos which can be easily replicated and edited, each film negative is a one-of-a-kind original. This means that every photo from your wedding day is a precious and unique piece of art that can never be duplicated.
Film and Digital – Combined the two and receive the best of both Worlds
When you work with me, you have a combination of both digital and film photography to capture your wedding day. This allows for the convenience and immediacy of digital photos, along with the timeless and romantic qualities of film. By combining the two mediums, you can ensure that you have a diverse and comprehensive collection of images that truly tell the story of your wedding day.
Imperfections are more beautiful
The imperfections of film photography are what makes it so beautiful. The subtle variations in colour and light, the occasional grain and soft focus, all add to the charm and character of film images. These imperfections create a sense of nostalgia and evoke a feeling of warmth and intimacy that is simply unmatched by digital photography.
Film gives an Element of surprise and appreciation
Another surprising benefit of opting for film photography is the element of surprise. In today’s instant-gratification society, waiting for film to be developed may seem like a daunting prospect. However, This unique experience of eagerly awaiting the arrival of your wedding photos only adds to the magic and excitement of reliving your special day through the images.
Colour, textures and dreamy tones
The romantic and timeless colours of film photography are something truly special. The soft pastels, rich earth tones, and dreamy black and white create a beautiful and enchanting aesthetic that perfectly complements the love and joy of a wedding day.
Wedding Inspiration that only showcases this art form
It’s also worth noting that film photography has grown in popularity in recent years, with many wedding inspiration websites and blogs showcasing the beauty and artistry of this medium. From elegant, fine art weddings to bohemian, free-spirited celebrations, film photography has become synonymous with the most beautiful and enchanting weddings today.
