A Nostalgic Wedding Celebration With A Vintage Touch

When it comes to capturing precious moments and emotions on a wedding day, it's not just about the event itself, but also the deep-seated connections and traditions that make it all the more special. In the case of Taylor and Sarah, their choice of analog movie film, specifically Super 8mm, for their wedding captures was more than just a stylistic preference. When Sarah inquired with us she mentioned the reason Super 8 was a priority for their wedding captures was because of how it had also been the medium used for her grandparents wedding film — and if that didn’t just immediately grab our heartstrings and plunge our hearts into a sea of nostalgic warmth?!

Along with the gorgeous medium of Super 8mm film, we also brought along a vintage 16mm magazine move camera from the 1920's! This camera hadn't been used since the 1980's at the latest -- the last time f16mm film magazines were produced -- which is what the camera captures on exclusively. However recently our friends at Film Photography project took on a true labor of love to bring these magazines back into commission -- allowing us to capture with these incredible battery-free, manual cameras once again!

The backdrop for this beautiful wedding day was none other than Sarah's grandparents' private home, a place brimming with fond family memories. It's where she had played, grown, and shared love with her closest people. The warmth of these memories made it the perfect setting to gather family and friends from near and far to create new memories of togetherness as they celebrated the union of Taylor and Sarah.
