Loft Photography + PV Takeover + Day 2

PhotoVision Team

@loftphotography Takeover Day 2: If we had photographed this sequence digitally, there may have been 50 frames to choose from. But since we were shooting film, we just snapped a few images that happened to be our favorites from the day.

If you are just starting to shoot film, you will realize, very quickly, that IT'S. NOT. CHEAP. Consequently, you learn to slow down and make each shot count. Film challenged us to get out of the "overshooting" habit that often develops when shooting digitally. Keeping costs in mind forced us to create slowly and with more intention while photographing weddings—which directly impacted how we shoot digitally. Regardless of if we’re holding a digital or film camera, we take the extra time to get the exposure just right in camera and carefully consider the composition of each frame, saving us lots of time in post-production. 😉

@loftphotography Takeover Day 2: This image was shot on the last roll of the day. We were running out of light and were hesitant to even shoot another roll. We are so glad we did, because these two lovebirds busted out some dance moves that resulted in some fun, emotion-filled moments. The digital version of these frames were WAY too blue to salvage, but the film images stayed true to the actual lighting . . .and that, my friends, is why we love film! 🎞

@loftphotography Takeover Day 2: When you're running a business, you quickly realize how precious your time is. Add kids to the equation, and your time becomes even that much more valuable. As moms running a business from our homes, we've loved how film has given us back time for the things that matter most, like changing diapers and wiping runny noses. 😉 When exposed correctly, film requires much less post-production. So, instead of sitting under a huge pile of images to be narrowed down and edited, shooting film has allowed us to walk away from the screens and have more face time with the ones we love. 👍

“I believe one of the best things we can do for our clients is help them feel peaceful throughout their entire wedding—specifically by providing a generous photography timeline. Start chatting with your clients and planners months before the big day, and help them choose the best ceremony start time to fit their needs. When my clients are relaxed and peaceful, their photographs are more beautiful and their memories more enjoyable!

Here’s an example of what a typical timeline looks like for me!

2:00* I arrive and photograph personal details + everyone getting ready

3:00 Bride gets in her dress

3:30 Bride + bridesmaids

4:00 Groom + groomsmen

4:30 Everyone hides away, I photograph ceremony + reception spaces

5:30 Ceremony

6:00 Family portraits

6:15 Wedding party portraits

6:30 Bride + Groom!

7:00 Reception entrance

7:30 (sunset)

*Many of us know we could spend hours styling one invitation suite, so it’s very common for me to photograph some personal details the day before or even arrive earlier than my contracted time—whatever it takes to provide a full collection for my clients!” @michelleboyd

“My sweet mom is currently having ALL of our old family photographs developed and digitized. We're talking upwards of 12,000 photographs from the past 35-40 years, all of which were taken on old film cameras by my dad (who taught me much of what I know). As I helped her organize some of the boxes, it was impossible to work quickly—my parents lived in that non-digitized, glorious time when every photograph was lovingly snapped and preciously archived. The memories my parents captured on film became my memories as I flipped through their albums countless times, and that's one of my biggest desires for my clients— as their children and grandchildren flip through their wedding albums, I want those memories to come alive for them, just as though they had sat in the aisle and listened to their ‘I do's.’” @michelleboyd
