An analog girl in a digital world – film wedding photography

You know it was a crazy wedding season when you completely forget that you shot some film for a wedding client. That happened to me this week when I had some film processed by Millers Lab. I *thought* what I was getting back, was part of our UK trip last July and personal photos I’d taken over Christmas. What I got were some WONDERFUL scans of film images from Kerry + Kris’ wedding in late August 🤦‍♀️ Anyone involved with film wedding photography will tell you that they are very intentional when they shoot film. There’s definitely no “spray and pray” involved with film because it’s a luxury product which has corresponding cost because film and developing costs can add up really quickly. This year, I was buying my film from a UK camera shop because it was more affordable to have them ship it to me, than to buy it here in the US.

Anyhoo, I’m embarrassed. I LOVE shooting film, and it was a joy to get these scans back. I was testing out this camera to see how it performed, so I didn’t charge Kerry and Kris for this service. However, I will definitely list it as an add on for our couples going forward. Here’s a little sneak peek. Shot with Kodak Portra400 on my antique 35mm Nikon and processed by Millers Lab.

A little background on film photography if you’re considering it for your wedding:

Shooting weddings on film refers to the practice of using traditional film cameras and film rolls to photograph a wedding event, as opposed to using digital cameras. Film photography has a distinct look and feel, often characterized by a warm, organic aesthetic with a more subtle range of tones and colors. Many photographers appreciate the tactile nature of film and the satisfaction of capturing images in a more traditional way. However, film can be less flexible than digital in terms of adjusting settings, reviewing images, and editing after the fact.
