Another monthly 10 on 10 post and this time all my images are shot on film. Yes, FILM! Like that old school stuff you used back in the day..remember? I actually am really loving film lately and for sure you will be seeing more of it on my site!
Why I love Film :
- No, or little, post processing of images. They come straight out of the camera looking awesome.
- Film always seems to have this "look" that I love. Its simple, and raw. And totally reminds me of my childhood photos.
- Film makes my heart sing. It is like Christmas every time I send in a roll and have no idea how they will turn out! I have had some disappointments (like Christmas?!) but mostly have been happy with my scans. Even the not-so-good ones are exiting as you often forget what you shot and its like a little surprise!
- It makes you a better photographer. You HAVE to know your settings and how to manipulate light and understand the how and why of creating a great image. You only get one shot, not 100 like on digital!
- the creamy dreamy bokeh far exceeds anything created digitally
I can go on. Every time I shoot I discover another reason why I love Film.
I promise - film will be making an appearance in many a wedding or portrait shoot coming up! ♥
Once again there are a few more than ten images...but they are all my babes and I couldn't narrow it down!

Autumn Inspired Bridal Shoot at Scotsdale Farm. Lots of inspiration for a fall wedding!
This wedding had it all - yet was so simple and intimate and perfect. The Alton Mill Art Centre in Caledon was the setting for this intimate and trendy wedding!
The Ferguson's annual family photos - this year we went to Elora Quarry in Elora, Ontario.
Here are some quick tips if you plan to do a session with coloured Holi Powder.
Tip #1 - Just Buy It! At first I was not able to find it in stores, only for a really high price on Amazon, so I googled and found a ton of recipes online for DIY Holi Powder. FIVE days later, I made about 6 bags of it and let me tell you, it was a P.I.T.A. Plus, I followed a recipe that used flour, and flour does not stick when its dry, so when we threw it, it did practically nothing. Good thing about 3 days before the shoot my friend messaged me and offered to give me a ton of bags of the real stuff. Buy the real stuff, it sticks to skin and is super vibrant and awesome!
I don't usually post until I have the whole gallery done, but this little man is so stinking adorable I wanted to share a few RIGHT NOW!! I did shoot most of Callum's gallery with film, so while we wait for those scans to come back, lets enjoy the instant gratification of digital :)
