Embrace the Perfect Imperfection

Alright, let’s get one thing straight.

You might be thinking that those high-res digital photos are the bee’s knees – which, don’t get me wrong, I still love as a wedding photographer! But it’s a whole different medium altogether. Let’s face it, life ain’t perfect and neither are we. Sometimes it’s nice to capture that side of things too.

Every light leak, speck of dust, and even those wonderful ‘in-between’ moments are captured on film in all their glorious imperfection.

Walking to your reception and trying to keep your veil out of puddles? Chatting with your cousins you haven’t seen in years while keeping an eye out for the canapes? Yep, all captured.

Your wedding photos captured on 35mm film will have no fancy filters, no airbrushed wrinkles and no insta-perfect poses. Just raw, honest, lived-in moments.

This isn’t just about photographs. It’s about capturing life, with all its beautiful blemishes. And isn’t that a wonderful way to remember your wedding day?

Carefully Considered Shots

When it comes to film, you can’t just machine-gun the shutter button and hope to land that perfect shot.

Film is not cheap! Each frame is a golden opportunity, a precious commodity. And you know what? That’s part of the magic. Wedding photos captured on 35mm film, every shot is a well-considered decision, a mindful act of capturing a moment.

It’s all about the thrill of perfectly aligning the elements and the satisfaction of hearing the click of the shutter. It’s a dance – the photographer, the couple, and the moment, all moving in sync. And that is the beauty of film photography.

It’s not about snapping a thousand shots and sifting through them later. It’s about thoughtfully composing a frame and capturing that one, special moment.

No second chances, no delete button – just the pure, unadulterated joy of taking that chance in a single take.
