Let’s go back to the very beginning, picking up my first camera, a dusty old Minolta x-700 with cranks and knobs and yes, a film loader. Learning to shoot on film was an experience I will be forever grateful for. With film you have a limited number of frames, which automatically makes every single frame more precious. Knowing you only have one or two frames to nail each shot makes you look harder, work harder and think harder about every setting, pose, composition and emotion you are engaging with your clients. Although when I shoot digitally, I consider myself “trigger-happy” I have been trying to find my way back to the beginning, stopping, looking and being more intentional on all of my shoots.
Lucinda and Jared were kind enough to follow me an my two amazingly talented photog-friends Shannon Cronin Photography & Annmarie Swift Photography up to the White Mountains for an engagement shoot shot in film! It was a gorgeous day & they were a gorgeous couple inside and out. I am so thankful they had the patience with us as we very carefully calculated every location and pose, making sure everything was right. The Omni Hotel at Mount Washington was the absolute perfect backdrop for this nostalgic shoot.
