Orange Photographie + PV Takeover + Day 3

Stephen Wood

@orangephotographie Takeover Day 3: The pursuit of a fulfilling connection to our work is what started many of us down this path of shooting film. But sometimes that path can get obscured by self-doubt, comparison and creative blocks. We believe people who are drawn to film are the type of people looking for a deeper meaning in their work, and are willing to go the extra mile for their clients and their art. That same motivation is behind our creation of @thecultivatedartist workshop we are co-hosting this October 10-14 in Scotland. We’ve seen a need to help redirect the wedding industry’s focus from an ideal of perfection to an ideal of honesty. Our workshop is not just aimed at building your portfolio. We know portfolios are important, but when they’re only full of immaculately-styled images that don’t have a lot of substance behind them, clients aren’t able to connect in an emotional way. And we believe connecting on a deeper level—with ourselves, with vendors, and of course, with our clients—is one of the most important things we can do. We invite you to join us, @jeremiah_photo, @rachel_spray, @pyrusflowers, @the_little_north_sea_studio and @emilymichaelsking, Managing Editor of Once Wed, as we dig deep into the creative process and cultivate our artistry so we can become confident again in telling beautiful stories and creating meaningful work.

@orangephotographie Takeover Day 3: Thank you so much for joining us these last few days on our #pvtakeover! We are incredibly grateful for @photovisionprints. Their support, professionalism and pursuit of excellence mean the world to us. We’re about to make our “grand exit” (hehe, get it?), but we’ll leave you with these last words— Never stop seeking those moments of pure, sincere happiness. Always be on the lookout for them. Nothing makes an image quite like honest laughter and smiling faces.

Orange Photographie + PV Takeover + Day 2

@orangephotographie Takeover Day 2: Winters in Montana last seemingly FOR-EH-VER (“The Sandlot,” anyone?) so we end up shooting a lot of engagement sessions in the snow. During this shoot, the couple brought along this gorgeous Persian blanket that was a family heirloom. The afternoon started out sunny, but soon after we started shooting, a fast moving snowstorm flew threw the mountain valley and threatened to ruin the shoot. We were on the verge of running to the car to take refuge, but we knew the whiteout had the potential to create a spectacular backdrop, so we asked the couple to brave it out with us and take shelter under the blanket instead. We were so excited when we got the scans back from @photovisionprints and saw this image. The contrast between the crazy storm and the warmth of the couple snuggled together under the colorful blanket ended up being such a perfect balance. All of this to say, when something unexpected happens during a shoot, use it to your advantage. Our best work often comes when we get hit with crazy ideas during shoots and ask our clients to trust us as we trust ourselves and our intuition.

@orangephotographie Takeover Day 2: Don’t be afraid of bright colors, movement, harsh sun, windy days . . . just don’t be afraid. Period. Being bold and taking risks helps you find and hone your special, unique eye. Again, it all comes down to trusting yourself, and your vision.

Orange Photographie + PV Takeover + Day 1

Stephen Wood

Hi, friends! Samantha and Reid here of @orangephotographie! We’re incredibly honored to be doing a #pvtakeover for the next few days. As photographers, it’s easy to get on the jealousy train and wish you had what other photographers have to work with, whether that’s locations, florists, stylists, models, gear . . . you name it. It’s easy to think that if you only had (fill in the blank), you would be happy and successful. But that idea is a lie and such a thief of happiness. Until you start embracing what you have to work with and making the most of it, you’ll always be wishing you were somewhere else, shooting something else and feeling inadequate. We live in Montana, a location most people would KILL to shoot, but we hadn’t fully embraced its awesomeness until recently. In the past, we’ve always been drawn to classic locations and styles and it frustrated me (Samantha) that I lived in a place that didn't reflect my own personal tastes. But one day, I realized I needed to stop fighting the innate wildness of Montana and embrace it. So, we've been on a mission to do that lately. Rock what you’ve got. This was shot on a Nikon F100 35mm with a Nikon 50mm lens using Fuji 400H . . . proving you don’t need a Contax 645 to get “the shot.”

@orangephotographie Takeover Day 1:  This image is from one of the first weddings we shot on film, and it remains one of our favorite images we’ve ever taken. We love the intimacy that comes with getting up close and personal with your camera, and the visually interesting composition that can be created as a result. But mostly, we love the peaceful look on the faces of these newlyweds and how it encapsulates how the entire day felt.
