i think film photography is a lovely idea. 

the only downsides i can think of would be purely the photographer’s fault. maybe she’d overexpose the film by accident, maybe she’d lose the film. maybe the place she develops it will mess it up. there’s less control over it. but i feel like since you will also have digital, you will be fine.

our photographers shoot in film and digital – they don’t develop the film themselves, they send it to a photo lab, so maybe ask about that. we LOVE our photographers and out of a 3 hour engagement shoot we got 166 edited and unique shots with one shooter.

Film is gorgeous, dreamy and forgiving, it’s the mark of a master photographer as well, in this age of quick fixes in post: it’s a really good sign he/she works in film.

PrincessBride2015:  Any photographer comfortable shooting your wedding with film is most likely a VERY experienced photographer. Obviusly without seeing their work I can’t say for sure, but as a wedding photographer who started back with film, I can tell you that they are more than likely skilled and creative. My biggest complaint about photography in general these days is that digital has producted a generation of pretty sloppy photographers. Shooting film takes concentrations and skill because there is no instant replay.

I say if you love their work, go for it! Like they said, they have a second shooting digital and they too will be shooting a hybrid so I thinkn you’ll have some great shots.
