"Sometimes in the dawn of digital, I feel that a little of the art of photography has been lost and film reminds me of a time that is gentle, whimsical and so elegant.”
Casandra sent through some of her Holga images from a recent wedding which is simply gorgeous.
"Susan, the bride is a huge fan of lomography and has a diana camera herself so it was so much fun to collaborate a film shoot on the day. Lomography is shooting with a cheap, plastic toy camera and is known for its dreamlike romance, optical distortion and saturated colours. It also has exaggerated vignetting, random streaks from light leaking across the film and unpredictable outcomes... Which is the greatest thing about it and makes the whole process so interesting, as you never really know what you are going to get. It is about looking through the viewfinder and letting the holga capture it’s own vision in a way."

I think this a lovely addition to wedding photography. The romantic quality to the images is so sweet and timeless. It would be very appealing to the creative couple that are looking for something different and artistic without it becoming cheesy and out of date when they, or their kids look back at their wedding photos in years to come.
We look forward to sharing some more recent weddings from Caspix Photography in the next few weeks.
