After over a decade of photography, I have a massive love affair with light. I am a film wedding photographer in Colorado who loves getting to capture couples in painterly light with stunning views. I find myself studying the way light hits objects, people, and landscapes from dawn to dusk. As a forever light chaser, I am always seeking ways to create the most beautiful portraits in the most flattering light. Hybrid (digital and film) photography is the way I capture my clients’ weddings with both a digital and film camera body on me. The day film scans land in my inbox is the best day! I work closely with my photo lab to consistently create the dreamiest images each time I send in a roll. In the quiet season, I photograph different film types to experiment with new formats. I love shooting a variety of film stocks to create a more full story of our couple’s day with the way the light shifts throughout the celebration.
However the film scans that land in my inbox just a few weeks after your wedding day are the cornerstone of how I create your full gallery. Each image that lands in your gallery is artistically photographed and edited. Film holds light like no other medium. As a film wedding photographer in Colorado, I love the way film holds light on a bright blue bird day even in the height of summer. The lighting in Colorado changes quickly from the high alpine summer days to snowy days full of bright sunlight, so I want to ensure that the portraits of my clients are flattering and stunning no matter time of year.
Film creates a soft glow even in a dark reception space when I use flash. Painterly landscapes, glowing skin tones, and pops of color that are true to life are a few of the top reasons why I choose film over and over. The process of creating a unique piece of art on your wedding day thrills me, and I know that the use of film allows your story to be captured in a beautiful and unique manner. Recently, I shared about what it means to create with a fine art approach and film is a large part of how I photograph your day.
My vision for each wedding I photograph is to create timeless imagery that will not simply showcase photographic and editing trends. I hope that 30 years down the road, you look back through your album and relive the images as though they had happened just yesterday. Creating photographs that are classic and timeless allow you to enjoy your images for years to come without the regret of a trendy look that was popular only in that time. Film is the best support for creating imagery that stands the test of time, while honoring the beauty of your day.
I use a mix of both mediums to create stunning portraits with the most beautiful light. I love the soft tonality and timeless nature of film, so my digital work is crafted to match the unique quality of this medium.
I am excited to create breathtaking imagery of your love story, and it brings me great joy to connect with you. If you would love to know more about my offerings for your wedding, contact me here to reserve your date.
