Ashley and Tom : Big Sur Elopement

6 Comments

I had  had a blast shooting Ashley and Tom’s elopement in Big Sur last month! There is nothing quite as intimate as a private little elopement like this. During our time, I shot a couple rolls of film and wanted to share an all film blog post since I haven’t in a while. Everything you see below is shot on the Contax 645!

tip:

For those of you who are on the fence about trying out shooting film, here is your nudge to give it a chance. No need to decide right now whether or not you will add it into your business permanently but you won't know until you try. I always end up with my best shots when I shot film because I slow down so much more and focus on what really makes an image great.

    GORGEOUS images, as always! Big Sur is one of my most favorite places in the world! I hope to shoot a wedding or elopement there one day!

    My hubby and I went on a 9-day camping trip along highway 1 back in 2008, it is still one of my most favorite trips to this day!

    Such a good job, Ben! It’s crazy to see how beautiful your film work is and yet even when you shoot digital you have the same aesthetic. Absolutely lovely.

    i recently came across your site via facebook and I really love that you include tips in your blog posts. i definitely agree with your point about shooting with film. i haven’t shot with film yet, but i definitely plan to. i recently bought a medium format camera and was waiting for the right shoot/time for my first experience with medium format. my only qualm is that film is so pricey. but kudos for the tip!
