Fine Art Wedding Photography
Held at the alluring Barnsley House last May in the Cotswolds, the Illumanted Collective Workshop was something I was so excited to be part of. Organised by Jessie Thompson (styling), Holly Rattaray and Ashlee Taylor-Barnes (both fine art film photographers), the day was an outstanding, creative feast for your eyes. I absolutely adore shooting on film and we were not only blessed with the location, but with perfect summer light too!
Fine Art photography is all about the light, the details, the styling and the romance. For me, it’s also about capturing your day as you always dreamed it would be captured; in a style that is warm, honest and emotional. The great advantage of this collective workshop was not only to shoot alongside fellow film loving photographers, but also to be able to slow down and trust your artists’ eye more. To think about the whole wedding as art that is unified and cohesive, and then to be able to record the day in this collective way so all the images flow beautifully and timelessly together.
There is some thing very special that happens when photographing in film format, the colours are so luminous and there is a softer look throughout. I shot on a mixture of both film and digital formats, matching my digital images as closely to my film images as possible to keep the look consistent in post production.
