Charleston South Carolina Wedding & Engagement Film Photography

Heading to Charleston, South Carolina was hands down one of the most exciting experience I had in 2014. The experience, the opportunity, the friends, even my close friend. It was a well rounded memory that I’ll never forget.

One evening right after Christmas 2013 a super close wedding photographer friend Mishelle Lamarand asked me if I would want to go to a retreat focusing on film, the Bliss & Bokeh Retreat! No no no, not film as in movies. Film as in rolls of film! I was thrilled! I had been toying with the idea of shooting film for awhile but I just haven’t made that leap yet. I know it may sound a little crazy because we are “moving forward” with technology by having digital cameras but there’s something about film that is hanging on, strongly. And you know, you’d be surprised at how many people think video when we refer to film! Which I totally understand why they would think that way because we are in essence “moving forward” in technology. So discussing rolls of film is out of the ordinary anymore.

There’s a lot to be said about film, and I mean A LOT.

Last year Clickin’ Moms published my journey on their blog and I touched a little bit on my experience with film. It’s not REALLY how I started of course but as far as a manual camera goes, it was my very first one. But trust me I was no where near being a professional photographer!

Film IS different then digital in that you have to slow down. My favorite part. Did you hear that? You have to slow down. For digital you can shoot 12fps (frames per second) and get use to that. Then when you are use to it you shoot shoot shoot. When do we ever take a breather slow down and really articulate a meaningful pose? Film is very expensive. so shooting at 12fps can be ok for digital camera’s it’s not for film. I mean you could shoot a pose over and over and over but the rolls of film and developing? Oy Vey!

So while I really enjoy it, I mean I really L O V E D it I am strongly considering adding it into my collections.

I did take the time to use my digital camera and will most certainly be posting those in another blog but today, today is all about the film side of things. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! I really felt this retreat as well as using a Contax 645 that Contax Rental graciously let us use, spoke leaps and bounds too me and the thought of using film in my future events has so much excitement going through my mind.

    Sarah! These are AMAZING! If you need a wedding next summer to experiment with some more film I am your girl 🙂

EMILY AND dan TIE THE KNOT

We're red lipstick bold, classics to the core, romantics at heart, and that effortless, boyfriend's-button-down-shirt sexy. This would be a great spot for a video background.
