Our Approach
“You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
- Ansel Adams

There's a reason film is making a comeback. There is something peaceful, final, more meaningful, more permanent, more honest, in capturing moments on film. Digital photography is amazing - we can curate perfect moments, see exactly what we get, and re-shoot in real time if the shot isn't perfect. With film, we take a chance and we get what we get. There is something about film that speaks to me on a deeper level - the way it captures life the way it really is: perfectly imperfect, a little off center, sometimes a little fuzzy.

“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
— Karl Lagerfeld

HLP x FILM

When a client adds film to their wedding day, I consult with them over their stylistic vision - are we thinking black and white, color, or a mixture? Are we thinking vintage 35mm camera, 80's point and shoot with a quartz date, or medium format Holga? Full day coverage, highlight coverage, or specific coverage of only certain parts of the day? This can all be tailored to your needs.

Micro coverage (up to 3 rolls of film with one camera) starts at $400. Highlight coverage (up to 7 rolls of film with 1-2 cameras) starts at $700.

 

Each roll of 35mm black & white film contains 24 exposures, and each roll of Holga film contains 12 exposures. Not all exposures will come out - due to lighting, environmental, and development factors. You may receive up to half a roll of printable images back, with 2-4 being significant, moving ones that speak to the soul. Such is the beauty of film.

All film packages include digital copies of each printable + scannable exposure, plus one 5x7 of each film image you would like printed.

BEHOLD: an actual image of 2011 Hannah, a high school senior with an edgy (read: terrible & self-inflicted) haircut, fresh out of the darkroom in her film photography class with her portfolio.
 
I first got my start with 35mm film in the darkroom at Bethlehem High School, and have loved it ever since. I hoard function and non-functional antique cameras as old as 1960 and as new as 1990s - 35mm cameras, Holgas, polaroid cameras... you name it, it's probably somewhere in my office. 

Charmed by the mystery of film?
