I was a film shooter for 15 years.  I shot hundreds of weddings with film. I then when digital.  Don't get me wrong digitals cameras are great. It is perfect, in fact too perfect.. The more I shoot film now, the more I realized that  I love it.  I love the colors that I get with film. The skin tones are just smooth and flattering.  Perfect for weddings and brides just love it.  The dreamy look is so amazing.  Films like Kodak Portra and Fuji 400H films are Professional films make for only one purpose. To make people look great !

Shooting film makes you slow down and carefully compose.  It costs me from $ 2 to $3 per shot I must craft each shot.  That is a positive.  Digital has advantages in low light and looks good even in a dark reception.

Film is used in many celebrity weddings.  Most Hollywood films are shot on film due to the wide tonal range.  It then can be digitized with great detail.

Do a web search on Jose Villa http://josevillablog.com/ and Elizabeth Messina http://www.elizabethmessinaweddings.com/. and you will see what I mean.
