June 23, 2023

In the age of digital photography, where instantaneous results and endless editing possibilities are readily available, shooting on film may seem like an outdated concept. However, for this eclectic bride, film photography offered a unique and genuine aesthetic that perfectly captures the essence of their wedding day. A Full Wedding Day on Film – perfect for this vintage garden party wedding.

Meet Makayla, the queen of Pinterest boards and the epitome of an eclectic bride. She has an eclectic taste, embracing various styles with a touch of trendiness, rawness, and craziness. Her wedding day inspiration is a treasure trove of unique ideas, visual aesthetics, and unconventional beauty. When Makayla shared her vision with me for her garden party wedding, I knew that shooting on film would beautifully capture the essence she sought.

Film photography has an inherent charm that can hardly be replicated by its digital counterparts. It embraces imperfections, showcasing a raw and grainy quality that adds depth and character to the photographs. Each moment captured on film is a unique combination of the lighting conditions at that precise instant and the specific film roll loaded into the camera. This element of surprise and unpredictability is what makes shooting on film an enchanting experience.

For Makayla’s wedding, we opted to shoot on a point and shoot camera. Why? Because it perfectly aligns with the values and desires of our eclectic clientele. A point and shoot camera offers an unfiltered and unpretentious approach to photography. It captures real and genuine moments as they unfold, ensuring that the emotions and authenticity shine through every frame. No staged poses or overly manipulated images, just a true representation of the couple’s unique connection.

Now, let’s take a closer look at a handful of images from Makayla and Nick’s garden party wedding day that were captured on film. As you scroll through the gallery, you will witness the magic of film photography. From the soft pastel hues of the outdoor ceremony to the vibrant bursts of color during the reception, every frame tells a story. The grainy texture and subtle imperfections create an ethereal atmosphere, transporting you back to the cherished moments shared during this unforgettable day.

The eclectic bride embraces individuality, creativity, and a sense of adventure. For them, shooting on film encapsulates the true essence of their wedding day. The unique and unfiltered charm that film offers is a perfect match for their edgy, raw, and trendsetting style. By embracing imperfections and capturing real and genuine moments, film photography creates a gallery of memories that are cherished for a lifetime. Whether you’re a bride-to-be seeking inspiration or a photographer aiming to capture the essence of an eclectic wedding, shooting on film is a choice that will transcend time and trends.
