When I was in California I was lucky enough to put that wedding dress (and other dresses) back on for a bridal photo shoot with the wonderful Photographer Matt Haines. Our wedding day had been so hectic I didn’t really have the chance to have “bridal portraits” taken and so when this opportunity presented itself, I jumped at the chance! Something I wasn’t quite expecting was that Matt shoots entirely with film – only film! With digital photography you can take as many pictures as you want – I’m used to having outtakes, and hundreds of images to sort through and pick out the best…not just a couple of rolls of film and the need to make every single shot count! Let’s just say it added on a ton of pressure.
Regardless, we got some good ones. Here are a few of the resulting images from the shoot:
