Bridal Inspiration with Alyssa Joy Photography


One of the great things about our Silver Cup Artists is that they are always looking for ways to grow into their craft. Perhaps the best way for photographers to learn is to attend a workshop. Right now, Katie is at Bliss & Bokeh in Charleston teaching photographers how to define and sustain their life's most honest work. And today's inspiration by Silver Cup Artist Alyssa Joy, comes from the Belle Lumière Workshop. 

When a photographer works with film as opposed to using a digital camera, it produces a very soft, dreamy-like quality to the photographs. The photographer has to work a little slower and wait for the right moments before shooting the image. There is a patience required to shoot film, but once you receive the photographs and have them printed, a very tangible and sometimes emotional connection is made between you and the moments you can hold in your hand.

When booking a photographer for your wedding or portraits, take a moment to ask your photographer if he or she is a digital photographer, film photographer or hybrid photographer which means they shoot a little of both. One was is not better than the other, they are just different. Taking the time to learn a little bit about the difference can help you in deciding how you want your memories to be represented and stored and also connect with your photographer on an artistic level.
