I don’t shoot weddings, or at least big weddings. They stress me out and I feel like there is too much pressure. I have done several small weddings on the beach, but it’s just me trying to capture the emotion of the ceremony and then a few portraits after. When I found out that our CrossFit gym owners were getting married and didn’t have a photographer, I volunteered to take a few images for them as a gift. Since it was at noon, on the beach, I knew film would give me the best results, because it just has such a larger range than digital, and it handles bright light better without losing all the detail. I admit that I was stressing big time afterwards, not sure what I got. There is something to be said about digital in that aspect. But the waiting was worth it and I am thrilled with how the images came out. This actually made me finally decide that from now on, I will shoot one roll of film at the beginning of every client session. I just love it so much. No more rambling, enjoy the pretty pictures. We don’t have much of a blog circle on film this month, but you should totally check out Lauren Nygard’s beautiful work in Joshua Tree here
