Kim Stockwell + PV Takeover + Day 1

PhotoVision Team

Y’ALL. Look at me, @kimstockwellphoto, over here taking over @photovisionprints’ Instagram. THIS IS NUTS! ✨ So glad to be here + so excited to meet y’all! I’m a film photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. I live right outside the city in the cutest little cape with my husband, Robby, and the BEST black lab of all time, Cooper. No seriously—he’s really great (the dog) but Robby is pretty great, too. 😉 I have a wild appreciation for authentic imagery + medium format film. The goal of every photograph I take is to create a timeless and classic image. My style and aesthetic is fueled by neutral color palettes + soft, romantic details. My passion comes from my ability to give clients beautiful, authentic moments. Moments, when cared for properly, can live forever. I am so honored to be taking over PhotoVision’s Instagram this week, I owe much of my success in the wedding industry to them and I am beyond grateful to have them on my team. This week I will be sharing a little bit about how I photograph a wedding with film and the tricks I have learned along the way!

@kimstockwellphoto Takeover Day 1: When I enter a venue I am thinking about 3 things—Where is the best light? ☀ What will I be photographing in this light? And what film stock will work best? For example, I rarely photograph the bridal details in the bridal suite. This detail shot was taken on the back terrace of the venue because it had the cleanest light. It can be easy to get flustered in the excitement of a wedding day, so being as intentional as possible as soon as you arrive can help save yourself some time and stress.

@kimstockwellphoto Takeover Day 1: Your shooting style and aesthetic should go hand in hand. My biggest successes were when I realized these 2 things aren't just correlated, they depend on each other. During my film journey, I realized I love the way simplicity looks on film. I dream in blank spaces—this is where I feel the most at home and this is what I am always searching for on wedding days. Neutrals are my jam. 😎 I love them, wish every wedding had them and am constantly looking for neutral spaces to photograph people and details in. I just think there is something really beautiful about simplicity, and I think neutral settings have a tendency to frame things in a special way. Defining your brand’s aesthetic (which for me, was neutral simplicity) and incorporating it into the way you photograph will only elevate your imagery.

@kimstockwellphoto Takeover Day 1: In the South, bridal portraits are a *THING,* ya’ll! 👰 Clients request entire sessions just for them. Regardless if they schedule a bridal portrait session, I always photograph the bride by herself a few times on her wedding day. I feel it is a necessary heirloom in the couple’s collection. Small details like knowing what your client might want, even if they do not ask for it, goes such a long way in creating your clients’ dream wedding gallery.

Nikki Santerre + PV Takeover + Day 2

PhotoVision Team

@nikkisanterre Takeover Day 2: Including still shots like this one in my client galleries has added so much value to their collections. The wedding day moves so quickly, and it’s our responsibility as photographers to document every moment. You never know what your client will miss in the chaos, and then be grateful to see through your eyes for decades to come.

@nikkisanterre Takeover Day 2: This frame is from the very first roll I shot with my Contax. I  just received this new-to-me camera a few days prior, and was both anxious and excited to try it out during this bridal portrait session. The first time I clicked the shutter, I noticed something wasn’t quite right when I looked through the viewfinder. In a panic that my new camera was broken, I immediately called @brian.wood at PhotoVision before my client arrived on location. He, very calmly, walked me through some potential solutions to my problem and gave me the encouragement I needed to get through this session. PhotoVision processed these few rolls for me as a rush so I could ensure my camera was functioning properly before the wedding that weekend. Never had I felt so taken care of by an industry partner than in that moment.

@nikkisanterre Takeover Day 2: Sometimes, the best thing you can do to care for your heart as an Artist is to create simply for the sake of creating. Find a vendor team with a similar aesthetic to yours, brainstorm a collaboration idea and create art for no other reason than to fuel the fire behind why you picked up a camera in the first place.
