As a wedding photographer rooted in the heart of Brooklyn, I find myself drawn to the timeless allure of 35mm film. There’s something undeniably magical about capturing love stories on film – it’s like each frame holds a piece of history, a fleeting moment turned into a forever memory. This sentiment was beautifully echoed in my recent couples session with Fiona and Helena.
Set against the vibrant backdrop of Brooklyn, Fiona and Helena’s session was a heartwarming display of love and connection.
the intentional focus, the anticipation of developing, and the authentic grain that adds character to each image. This medium encourages a unique kind of presence and mindfulness both for me and the couples I photograph. It’s not just about taking a photograph; it’s about creating a piece of art that tells a story.
Fiona and Helena’s session was a beautiful testament to this. Each frame I shot on my 35mm camera encapsulated their love in its most natural and unscripted form. Whether it was the way the sun dappled through the trees, casting a warm glow on their faces, or the gentle way they held each other, every photograph felt like a step back in time – a nod to the classic romance films of old Brooklyn.
The grain of the film, the depth of the colors, and the way light plays on film is unparalleled. It’s like each photograph whispers its own little story, a secret shared only between the subjects and the viewer.
As we wrapped up the session, with rolls of film ready to be developed, I couldn’t help but feel a deep sense of fulfillment. This is what photography is all about – not just capturing moments, but creating memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.
For couples like Fiona and Helena, choosing a Brooklyn Couples Session on 35mm Film means choosing to have their love story told in a classic, timeless fashion. It’s about embracing the imperfections and unpredictabilities of film, which in many ways, mirrors the journey of love itself – beautifully imperfect, deeply moving, and utterly irreplaceable.
