Film Photography Bridal Shoot, 501 Union, Brooklyn

When I first began practicing photography, I learned the craft on film. I mostly shot 35mm 400TX, and loved walking through the streets of NYC taking candids. After a considerable break, I rediscovered my love for shooting film, and began taking photographs of my personal trips and family on my Hasselblad 500c.

Wanting to bring my love for film into my wedding photography practice, I scheduled a wedding shoot with the lovely people at 501 Union in Brooklyn. For this shoot I decided upon 35mm film, Ilford 3200 for Black and White and Portra 800 for Color. 

I really love how subtle yet distinguished the highlights are in BW, especially with delicate and ethereal material of the wedding dress.

The color film absolutely blew me away, too. The model's skin tone was absolutely stunning on Portra. 

After this shoot, I was very determined to integrate film photography into my wedding packages. Film is just magical to me...
