One of my business goals over the past year or so is to try to shoot one roll of medium format film at every wedding. I’m enjoying the process of shooting medium format film so far, focusing on using the camera for portraits alongside of my digital camera.
Your can follow along with my results on Film Fridays.

In April, when I traveled to Winston-Salem for Rachel and David’s Brookstown Inn wedding, my 2nd photographer and I ended up with some extra time on our hands. One of the perks of traveling for weddings is I often have a little time to wander and explore on my own. I love experiencing a new place through fresh eyes, learning about local history, and taking in the sights.
While I had been to Old Salem as a middle school Girl Scout, I didn’t really remember much beyond the yummy sugar bread you can get at the Moravian Bakery (yes I love desserts, so of course I remembered this!). This time, Kyla and I took our time wandering Old Salem with our film cameras. It was misty and cool, but we went with it and I just had to embrace the frizzy hair for the day.
You can see my favorite film shots below. Old Salem is such a picturesque place and Kyla and I were both inspired by the lush greenery that is prevalent in North Carolina. We both want to go back again for more shoots.
