Fine Art Film Wedding Photography Workshop

This past November, I attended The Little Workshop hosted by Michael & Carina Photography. I was tinkering at home with my film camera and reading multiple blog posts online about basic things like loading and sending film, how to rate it, how to meter, film stock types, all the things! However, I’m a visual, hands-on learner so I decided to take the plunge and invest in a workshop with some experts!
This was THE FIRST TIME I had ever shot only film and did not even break out my digital. I was definitely overwhelmed at the time, scared to see the final product, and a slow member of the group. However, I learned so much and enjoyed meeting so many fellow film photographers! I have posted many other film images and blogposts since this workshop (thanks to what I learned from Michael & Carina), however, I think it’s only fair to be transparent and share the first shoot where I dove in with 100% film. Credits at bottom.

    Brianna, these are absolutely breathtaking!! And I have to admit that I’m not the least bit surprised that your very first 100% film shoot is perfect, straight out of the gate!! It has been a treat watching you learn and grow with film and it makes me so excited to think about what I’ll be learning this year. Thank you for being such an inspiration!!!
