WILL YOU DIRECT US DURING OUR PORTRAIT SESSIONS?
Absolutely, I have worked for years refining my directorial techniques that allow you to feel confident and natural in front of my camera. I use unique methods to encourage genuine connection and purpose, creating images that feel authentically beautiful and alive.
WHY DO YOU CHOOSE TO MAKE PHOTOGRAPHS USING FILM?
To me, film is magic, distilled. It’s how I fell in love with Photography, how I studied Photography and how I will always approach my craft. Film has a unique aesthetic with beautiful tones and is the perfect choice for flattering, romantic and timeless photographs. Using medium format film cameras, my organic style aims to craft beautiful photographs which will stand the test of time. I don’t just make a record of your day; I weave a story in an editorial style. Film’s unique tonal range, colors and feel when combined with my shooting style and natural light make for the most radiant photographs. Also one of the huge advantages of real film is that so little retouching is required as skin tones and colors are so flattering when captured on film and combined with my shooting style.
HOW LONG IS THE DELIVERY TIME FROM THE WEDDING DATE UNTIL WE RECEIVE THE PHOTOS?
I guarantee all photographs delivered within 8 weeks.
HOW DOES THE PROCESS OF SHOOTING FILM WORK AND DO YOU CARRY A DIGITAL SYSTEM TOO?
After the capture on the film negative my world leading professional photo lab Photo Vision meticulously process and scan the film to create high resolution scans. This means that I have the best of both worlds; beautiful, organic capture on real film with the advantage of also giving you photographs to share online. I also carry a full digital photographic system too.
