Mandy & Justin - A Journey with Film - TRD Photography
Mandy & Justin - A Film Engagement Session
I first met Mandy back in 2010 when she booked a session with me and she's been one of my best friends since. I was honored when I was booked to do an engagement session with her and her fiance, Justin. In my meeting, she expressed an interest in my film work, so on top of their regular engagement photos, we shot a partial roll of film as well.
We began the morning, bright and early, outside of the Chattanooga Choo-Choo. The first place that Justin had told her that he loved her was on a train, so we thought it the perfect place to begin.
From the Choo-Choo, we headed towards the Tennessee River and Coolidge Park. After walking across the bridge and dodging joggers and bicycles, we finished up their film photos with the next couple of photographs.
It was such a pleasure getting to shoot some film with Mandy & Justin, as well as doing the majority of their shoot with digital. Film work and Digital definitely have their own attributes. What I personally love about film is the depth, but also the perfect imperfectness. It's gritty, it's real. I hope to do more film work with couples in the near future. As for Justin & Mandy's other engagement photos, keep an eye out. :)
