The Film Guide
Learn how to incorporate film into your
wedding photography business.
So many photographers want to incorporate film into their workflows these days. Including polaroids as a part of your clients’ experience is almost the new standard. But after daily messages from photographers asking, “What film camera should I buy?” it has also become increasingly obvious that while many photographers don’t know where to start when it comes to film, they really aren’t asking the most fundamental question of all. Why do you want to shoot film in the first place?
Film isn’t a fad. It’s how photography started, and will completely change you and your business for the better.
We are here to help you start shooting film on the right foot, with the right resources, for the right reasons. We’ve found that even though mastering the fundamentals of film is important, being intentional with your relationship to film, both professionally and personally, is equally as important.
“My hope for this course is not only that you feel confident with film, but that you really dig deep and discover your purpose for choosing to shoot with this format.”

About the Educator
Hannah is a photographer based in Portland, OR, known for her ability to capture raw emotion, natural beauty, authentic experiences, and compelling narratives. Her fiance, Cole Becker, is an independent filmmaker and serves as a second shooter for Hannah at weddings. Together, they've learned the ins and outs of film photography by documenting as much of their own lives as possible, before ultimately offering their finely tuned skills to clients.
At a typical shoot, Hannah will have about half-a-dozen different film cameras slung around her neck at once, while Cole prepares several more to replace them a moment later. Working with film has become second nature for both of them. For Hannah and Cole, film has always been much more than a hobby, it's a way of life. Film has become their path towards living more intentionally, and interacting more intimately with each moment along the way.

“Film is minimal, but so powerful. What you choose to shoot on film is the center + core of what an experience is like. Instead of a gallery delivered months later with hundreds and hundreds of digital images to sift through, you get this raw, unfiltered, unaltered version of an experience. There's just nothing else like it.”
You won’t regret it.
