capturing memories on film is back, suckers.

from when the first camera was invented in 1816 to now, cameras have changed, as things tend to do over time. nowadays everyone you walk past in the street has a camera in their pocket, taking photos everyday of their food, family, cats and life just like you.

i love shooting on film because it goes against that. it's easy to shoot off forty photos in a day on your iphone 14 pro, but the nature of film makes reaching that 36th exposure take so much longer. when i travel or have any grand plans in my life that i want to capture, i don't bring the cameras i shoot weddings with. 

they're heavy and bulky and i don't want to get caught up using the in-camera wifi to get that photo i just took straight on the gram. i love snapping the shot on what ever film camera i've brought along for the ride and then moving on to the next moment, and i love the delayed gratification that comes with waiting for a roll to come back from the lab in a world so full of instant gratification.

so why film for wedding photography? there's already that delayed gratification in wedding photography as us photographers aren't machines and can't send you your gallery the next day, so i wanted to bring my love of capturing moments on film into my business because i know a lot of people out there share my love of the grain, the light leaks, the perfect imperfectness and instant nostalgia that seeing your life on those negative sheets brings.

i have a sea of new and old cameras that i will use to tell story in analog. for 35mm, i have a pair of canon 1vs that i'll primarily use to capture the day. These are the last cameras made by canon before the digital era hit, so they’re incredibly reliable and are wicked fast. my fujiga645 has everything covered for medium format, and remaining spaces in my camera bag are occupied by a contax, nishika, rolleiflex, a polaroid and an instax. For capturing weddings in their 8mm glory, i use a pair of chinons. 

if you're my accountant, yes the purchase of these cameras was a necessary business expense.

i'm a big fan of consistency in colour, so will stick to the portra family (primarily 400) for all colour and tri-x or for b+w. maybe some cinestill if you're getting married at a laundromat or run down movie theatre.

what’s life without a bit of risk, eh? but in all honesty, there’s risk involved in everything - even digital photography has its risks! it’s on photographers to mitigate such risks, and i have processes and steps in place to manage all risks for my photography, both film and digital. that being said, given the lack of immediate feedback that shooting on film brings, you might end up with a few more blurry or out of focus shots in your final gallery, but if you’re reading this page, i’m sure you know that’s part of the magic.

for full day film coverage, you can expect ~50 shots per hour of coverage. for add ons, you’ll get roughly 75-100 photos total.

nope! my turnaround time for wedding galleries is the same for film + digital. super 8 films do have a bit of a delay though, you can anticipate your films back within 8-12 weeks.

nah fam, it makes me ALIVE. weddings have been captured gloriously for decades, with or without the presence of digital cameras. film has incredible dynamic range and latitude, a kind of range that digital can't compete with. because of the 36-shots per roll nature of film, it forces me into a place of being more considered, intentional and creative with each shot i take.
