Taylor & Porter Photographs. Film Photography. Destination Wedding in Switzerland,

Why do you choose to make photographs using film?

To me, film is magic, distilled. It’s how I fell in love with Photography, how I studied Photography and how I will always approach my craft. Film has a unique aesthetic with soft grain and beautiful tones and is the perfect choice for flattering, romantic and timeless photographs. Using medium format film cameras, our organic style aims to craft beautiful photographs which will stand the test of time. We don’t just make a record of your day; we weave a fine art story in an editorial style. Film’s unique tonal range, colours and feel when combined with our shooting style and natural light make for the most radiant and beautiful photographs.

Do you work alongside anyone on wedding days?

I have a full time Assistant and on wedding days John second shoots alongside me giving us the advantage of being able to be in two places at once and giving you a greater variety of photographs. For example he can be with the Groom and Groomsmen whilst I capture photographs of the Bride and Bridesmaids. We are discreet during your ceremony and will gently direct you during your portrait session. Having had the pleasure of working with some of the best Stylists and Editors on shoots we bring the knowledge and experience we’ve gained with us when we work with you.

How does the process of shooting film work and do you carry a digital system too?

After the capture on the film negative our world leading professional photo lab Richard Photo Lab meticulously process and scan our film creating high resolution scans. This means that we have the best of both worlds; beautiful, organic capture on real film with the advantage of also giving you photographs to share online. We also carry with us a full digital photographic system with us for low light situations where colour images are preferred. In low light our preference is to shoot beautiful black and white Ilford 3200 film but we recognise that some clients may prefer the option of low light photographs being delivered in colour as well as black & white so we can always offer this option.

How long is the delivery time from the wedding date until we receive the photos?

We guarantee all photographs delivered within 8 weeks.

Do you cover Elopements or multi-day Weddings?

Yes we do and have experience shooting both of these types of wedding. We love intimate celebrations but we are equally comfortable shooting large scale weddings taking place over more than one day.

Have you experience shooting weddings of varying faiths?

We have had the great pleasure of capturing a wide variety of faith weddings including Hindu, Jewish, Humanist, Christian and Buddhist celebrations.

Do you offer the option to add additional hours to your wedding collections?

Yes, we can be totally flexible to your needs and can pre-arrange any additional hours you might need outside the ones offered in our collections.

Do you offer pre-shoots/anniversary or family/baby sessions?

Yes we do and love capturing the various beautiful chapters in our client’s lives.

Do you accept branding and editorial commissions?

Yes, we adore creating bespoke creative work for brands and have a particular focus on bridal fashion. Please contact us to discuss your project.

Can you help me source other vendors for my wedding?

Yes, we are very happy to recommend vendors we know and trust and can help you build the perfect team for your wedding.
