It was really special for us to be a part of Alli and Bobby’s wedding at Bravo Farms in Kettleman City! We first met Alli through 31 Bits, the amazing organization she co-founded that empowers women to rise rise above poverty through fashion and design. Once she met Bobby, it was like two peas in a pod! They are so incredibly perfect for each other and they bring so much joy to everyone around them! We felt extra lucky to work alongside Carly Rae Weddings, Jesi Haack Designs, Plum Pretty Sugar and flowers by Grey Likes Weddings!

  • Hey Wedding Lady - Such a fun mix of styles in their gorgeous wedding – and absolutely beautiful photography, of course!

A few weeks ago, we did behind the scenes blog post showing before/afters of our digital photos processed with the new Fuji Pro Pack from Mastin Labs. We had an overwhelming amount of positive responses to the post, and several photographers requesting that we share some of our digital vs. film examples!

Though no film emulation presets will ever be identical to film, we feel like Mastin Labs gets our images close enough, where we just need a few tweaks. Film has a really beautiful depth to it, and it’s coloring can vary depending on where you get it scanned/developed. So those two factors will never get digital and film photos to look exactly alike with just one click.

Here are some of our digital vs. film photos from Joni + Conner’s Joshua Tree engagement shoot we photographed this past Spring. The digital photos were shot on the Canon 5dMkIII with the 50 mm 1.2 or the 85 mm 1.2 and processed with Fuji Pro 400H Neutral and then tweaked from there!

We still love shooting film, and in no way are we using Mastin presets to replace film, but they are a great tool in helping us mesh the two together :) We feel like film has made us better photographers in a lot of ways…and has helped us fine tune our coloring/editing.

We don’t usually shoot digital backup for all of our engagement/portrait sessions that we shoot on film. We just snapped a few this day because we went all the way out to Joshua Tree…so sorry that the angles aren’t exact :) Hopefully this gives you enough of an idea of how the presets work in conjunction with film.

Hope you found this review helpful! We have been so thrilled with these presets, and would have shared about them for free, but Mastin is giving us a little kick back for any of our friends who decide to buy! Click HERE to check them out! Also, feel free to leave comments/questions below and we will do our best to answer!

  • Justin Douglas - When shooting digital & trying to match film white balance do you shoot Auto WB or use custom WB

  • Mason Schroder - Very nicely done!

  • Emily Jane Furney - Have you been using Richard’s in LA for developing and scanning?

  • Davy Priestley - awesome make my life more easier

We were thrilled to be apart of Christine and Dennis’s wedding at the Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Coast.  We loved how elegant their wedding from her lace ombre gown by Monique Lhuillier to the beautiful floral’s by the one and only White Lilac.  Thank you to Carrie from Details Details for doing such an amazing job coordinating such this wedding and making our job so fun! More thanks to Yuling Designs for the stunning stationary, hair + make up artist Theresa Haung, Studioe 205 videograhy, and awesome DJ-ing by Elevated Pulse!

We were honored to spend the weekend with this adorable Southern couple for their wedding at the beautiful Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes!  All of their guests flew in from out-of-town and started the weekend off with a fun rehearsal dinner and after party at The Strand House in Manhattan Beach. The next day, Kristen and Michael said their vows over looking the ocean and ended the night with their amazing dancing skills! Their wedding day was seamlessly put together by Michelle from Details Details, along with an amazing team that included Bloom Box Designs for floral decor, makeup by Design Visage, video by Mission Visual, and dessert by Sweet & Saucey!

Erica and Frank are such a sweet and fun loving couple! We had so much fun shooting their engagement photos in Back Bay and loved how beautiful the colors turned out with with her blue dress! It always makes our job so easy and fun when couples have such a natural chemistry together, like Erica and Frank do. We can’t wait to shoot their wedding next May at the Bowers Museum alongside our friends + talented cinematographers, 618 Studios! It’s going to be an amazing day!
