Embracing the Beauty of Film Wedding Photography in Tennessee

Love in its truest form as we delve into T&J's wedding. This was an alfresco backyard wedding in Tennessee and it turned out as the bride intended; memorable, intimate, and timeless. Juan documented authentic moments that captured raw emotion and genuine connections between Tami and Jenees. This was an extremely well designed backyard wedding in a rural area south of Tennessee.


As modern documentary wedding photographers Juan will guide you through the process of letting go, encouraging you to be your true selves in front of the camera. With a fine-tuned eye for detail and an understanding of the nuances of love, he will document the essence of your special day. Each photograph stands as a testament to the unspoken words, the stolen glances, and the heartfelt laughter shared between Tami and Jenees. Capturing these moments on film made all these moments even sweeter. Wedding Film photography is not a trend but is here to stay. Juan believes film is the truest and rawest form of photography there is. Edits, styles, and trends come and go unlike film, which has been here for decades.


Juan used different film cameras to capture this alfresco style wedding. He used 3 film cameras; Konica Hexar, Fuji Film 690, and a 35mm Minolta and paired them with Kodak Film. Juan loves the tones, contrast, and colors of Kodak Film so for this wedding he used a mix of Kodak Portra 400 and Kodak Portra 160. He also captured a few shots using the discontinued Fujifilm 400Hpro. Nathan Rivers who documented the wedding on video used a mix of digital and Super 8 to capture more organic moments of Tami and Jenees from their alfresco style wedding.
