Piedmont Estate Wedding, The Film | Christian and Richelle
It’s been a good month dear bloggy-blog – nay, it’s been a GREAT month. In fact, it’s been so good, that I’m pulling out words like ‘nay’ just for funsies. Things have been soft, lovely, and romantic on the other side of our lenses, which is exactly what we like to see when we peek through our cameras.
But things are downright swoon-worthy when we peek through our Contax 645 and Zeiss 80mm f/2.0. Why? Because there’s absolutely nothing like capturing beautiful moments on medium format film. You know – the physical stuff on which images used to be captured? We’re in love with the permanence of film which is why we’ve been shooting so much of it throughout this wedding season. Our sentimental hearts have been romanced by the fact that a chemical process happens with each movement of the shutter, creating a permanent image of a permanent memory. It’s a chemical process that can’t be undone, much like the moments we’re documenting – they’re etched forever into our hearts and into our lives, so why shouldn’t they be captured, unaltered, on our film?
Christian and Richelle’s was one of those wedding days that felt perfect for film. It was soft and romantic with an overarching sense of legacy that we love. They were uniting their hearts into something that they knew couldn’t ever be undone, and that sense of perfect permanence lends itself wonderfully to something as timeless as medium format.
This is a film kind of week here at the bloggy-blog folks, so if you’re dying for more of this medium format goodness, just hold on to your britches for little while longer. The blog fairies are telling me there’s more to come soooooon!
