Cody + Sarah on film

I recently photographed my brother and his wife on film at Windansea Beach in La Jolla.

I wanted to do this entire shoot on 35mm and 120mm film as a challenge, and to let go of relying on digital being something that I can always depend on to take an overabundance of images that can then be culled down to 200 photos, which to me is still too much to choose from. I’m trying to focus on less is more and seeing where it goes. As a bonus the prints from film are stunning compared to a digital print.

This wasn’t an engagement session, but I wanted to feature it as such. They’ve been married for over a year now, so I see it as an anniversary session! I’m looking to do more of these film based sessions in the future, so if you’re looking for a San Diego photographer please contact me here.

These photographs were made with a Canon AE-1P, and a Mamiya C220 with Portra 400 film.

My brother, Cody Long, is also an amazing visual artist and producer! You can see his work here:
