These Folly Beach Wedding Bridals were my first attempt at using a film camera. I was surprisingly impressed with myself! Film is so different from digital photography.

Which is why this Folly Beach wedding bridal editorial was the perfect chance for me to attempt to photograph with my film camera.

I believe that all photography is a form of art, but film has a certain look to it that I absolutely love. It reminds me of a painting. Any of the photos below could pass for a painting in my opinion! The colors, highlights, and detail look so different from a digital photograph. Which is why I decided to try it out! This experience was definitely eye opening. I learned how to work a film camera: changing film, taking light meters, and all kinds of other stuff. And to be honest, I think it made me a better digital photographer! We will see how my journey with film photography goes, but I definitely love my digital cameras still!

For this editorial, I teamed up with Julie Livingston. She planned all the details and coordinated hair and makeup, while I brought the camera and film! We had already rescheduled this once, and I was nervous we might have to reschedule again.

The fog was heavy in Charleston that morning.

And it looked like it was about to start pouring rain. But fortunately, we made it there just in time and the rain started as soon as we left! I would’ve loved some sunshine for this session, but I still think they turned out beautiful!

Folly Beach was the perfect place for these bridals.

I could not get over these florals. This bouquet was filled with roses and orchids. I’ve never seen an orchid bouquet in real life, only in pictures, so this was pretty cool for me. They were the perfect pop of color of this gloomy day for our Folly Beach wedding bridals. On a Limb florals did such a fantastic job putting it together and making it look so magical!

Her lip color was just the perfect pop. And it went great with the simplicity of her makeup and hair!

This is my favorite portrait from the whole day. The fact that I can count every single eyelash, but the focus isn’t too hard on her face is amazing. I can’t believe how beautiful the details are in film. And the colors!

The sun was starting to sneak out for just a few minutes before the rain started. These rocks were the perfect prop for Christina to stand on for our final photos of the day. She was also the sweetest ever and looked so beautiful! That’s her natural hair, y’all! That’s the kind of hair I dream of having!

And that’s a wrap on this Charleston wedding editorial!
