Wedding shot on film

“The film stops me, slows me down and makes me reflect on what I’m photographing, helping me to capture the essence of the reality that I find myself documenting.
Analog photography has a soul.
It is light, glass and mind.
There is really nothing else. “


A Film Wedding has a particular and unique aesthetic. It definitely takes a high level of expertise to shoot a wedding on film. Each film has its own beauty and limitations, and a photographer must always know exactly what he is doing. He must know how to read the light, choose the right framing and the best position to take every single shot. You can’t take thousands of images and only keep the best. You need to know what you are doing before taking the picture.

You have to “feel” the photograph first and then press the shutter button.

Wedding shot on film provides something unique: a physical negative that will then be printed in the darkroom. When you press the shutter button to take a picture of your wedding, the real light that is there at the moment is impressed into the negative. This photograph physically captures a moment in time. There’s your love story in that negative. Your Wedding will then be physically present in your photographs.


Your Love matters!

Poetic realism and analogue photography can be a great combination for capturing the beauty and emotion of a wedding. Poetic realism is a style of photography that emphasizes the natural, spontaneous moments of a wedding, capturing the emotions and relationships of the people involved.


Combining these two styles can create beautiful, evocative images that capture the essence of a wedding. However, it’s important to note that analog photography requires a higher level of technical skill and experience than digital photography, so it’s important to choose a photographer who is experienced with this medium.


Wedding shot on film influences my shooting style a lot. Everything becomes slower and more thought out. We will have more interaction at certain times, and everything will not seem so hectic and fast. This slowness and complicity will surely change the way you live your marriage. The benefits of analogue photography are real. Your photographs will be unique and have a distinctive style. There is a unique romance in having the actual light present at your wedding etched permanently into your scrapbook photographs.


It will certainly be more expensive. Film costs money and must be developed and scanned before being printed in a darkroom. Not all negatives will be perfect or printable. Film photography is chemistry, and sometimes the chemistry goes wrong.


But shot on film, your wedding becomes ART. There is no replication, no infinite reproduction. Your photographs will exist in the real world, not just on a cloud. Those images of you two will physically exist. Your photographs will have intentionality, meaning, honesty, physicality: they will not just document, but will infuse meaning and relevance to your story. They will be a real testimony of your love for each other.


However, in our services we can shoot both on film and digitally at your wedding. This way you get the beauty of film when it’s appropriate, and at the same time the safety and speed of digital.

“In my mind, I visualize how a particular… sight will appear on a print. If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph. It is an intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice.”
