Documenting unforgettable experiences with film photography

Package Details

Film photography

These images are the ones that contain the most emotion — genuinely capturing your affection for one another. It’s these very photos that you’ll want to showcase in your home for visitors to see. This raw emotion and the traditional shots I’ll be sure to take (first look, cake cutting, first dance) come together to create the perfect wedding collection.

I strive to capture the exceptional, unrehearsed moments of your wedding day — the ones in which you hardly realize there’s a camera in the room. Instead, your focus is on the love of your life.

Rudney is the best photographer we could ever get! He's detailed oriented, passionate, a superb professional, and every image he took reflected the essence of me and my husband as a couple. No one can beat his incredible creativity and ability to express a couple's best qualities through emotional images. Our photos are timeless and priceless. Thank you Rudney for your fantastic work, these shots are a wonderful reminder of the best memories Daniel and I have.

We were mesmerized with the photos Rudney took of us - they portray exactly what we felt during the most special moment in our lives. 

- Anya and Lamin

We took a very long time to find our wedding photographer because we are quite picky, to say the least. Researching what felt like hundreds of websites, where most people see beautiful photos, we notice ‘flaws’ with lighting, framing, angles, etc. Rudney took the time to get to know our tastes and vision, and, long story short: we could not have dreamed of better wedding photos! He and his team are extremely professional, personable, and hard working. Not only did they do a superb job with taking the photos, but the editing was also impeccable. Rudney did such an exceptional job with our wedding pictures, capturing all the beautiful moments and making everyone look naturally stunning – we will forever be grateful!

Ready to find out if we’re a good fit?

A good rule of thumb is 75 to 100 final photos per hour of coverage.

How many photographs can we expect with our amount of photography coverage?

I have a deep respect for the liturgy of marriage in any culture, and I am very attentive and reverent (so is my team) during all ceremonies. I thrive by ensuring your day is exactly what you want and capturing shots that reflect your beauty and grace. 

How do you accommodate religious and TRADITIONAL ceremonies?

Yes, my assistant and second photographers are professionals that I fully trust. They aid with lighting and manage logistics of critical parts of the wedding day.

Do you work with a photography assistant or second photographer?

Frequently Asked Questions

I use both digital and film photography. I love the sublime feeling and softness of film, and the reliability of digital images. Therefore, I shift effortlessly between both digital and film. You'll benefit from both mediums — receiving the one-of-a-kind film look and the reliable digital product.

Do you shoot in both digital and film? How does film photography differ from digital photography?

Of course! Although, your planer will assist you with that, I can also help you in drafting a realistic timeline that allows your day to be stress-free, enjoyable and fluid to document those precious moments. 

Can you help us develop our wedding photography timeline?

I will be as engaged as you’d like, but I’m typically hands-on during weddings, guiding you through the moments and helping with posing as necessary. I will be present and available throughout the entire process; yes, including consoling you through pre-wedding jitters. 

If we choose you as our photographer, what can we expect on our wedding day? Will you blend into the background or are you more engaged, guiding us along?
