  • Welcome to Krystal Healy Photography – The Blog

For our third installment, we bring you the final piece of the puzzle, Nicole and Phil’s Armstrong Farms – Westminster Preserve Barn Reception.  If you need to play catch up, please see:  Getting Ready and the First Look   |  Portraits and the Ceremony.  Last but not least, we get to the dancing and fun.  Plus our signature night shots!  So much love for this couple.  I am honored to have captured your day Nicole and Phil.  Thank you so very much for choosing me!

If you have the option of going outside about 10 minutes BEFORE the sun sets, please take the opportunity and do so.  It’s the BEST light of day and really makes for some AMAZING pictures.  Even if you’re not having an outdoor wedding, consider going outside during the “golden hour” – You won’t regret it! Also, something I have been doing with all of my clients (time permitting) is a night shot.  We go outside with some fancy lighting and create one last dramatic portrait that looks great at the end of any wedding album.  I HIGHLY suggest it.

So folks – We are starting back at the multiple blog features per week thing again.  What does that mean? You get to see more pretty pictures!

I can not even begin to tell you how over the moon excited I was to be photographing Nicole and Phil at one of my very favorite barn venues – Armstrong Farms!  Nicole is a teacher and an avid DIY’er – so there was literally every.detail.possible for their celebration.  The family got out their glue guns (and in Nicoles Dad’s case – his saw to cut wood discs for the centerpieces) and made everything come together in what I can only describe as a magazine wedding.  It was – picture – perfect.  Every bit of it.  What’s even more cute? Phil’s reaction to seeing his beautiful bride during the first look!!! I started crying! (Thanks for that PHIL – lol)

Anyway I won’t take up much more of your time with my words – they often fall short of the images anyway.  This will be part one – the getting ready – the details – and the first look.  We have a LOT in store this week folks, so check back in!

I get a lot of strange looks from people when they see me loading film into my camera at weddings.  People will watch me for a few minutes and then they will come over and ask me ” What are you doing?”  and I will answer “I am loading my film!”  Then I will go into a conversation about why I still shoot film and that yes, I use a digital camera too! I am what you’d call a “hybrid shooter”.

I love film.  Everything about the way it feels when I have to stop – slow down – compose and expose correctly and then shoot with a purpose.  I only have a few exposures on here before I need to change to another roll.  Every picture I take literally costs my about $2, so I make sure to get it right the first time.  It makes me a better photographer.  It makes me more aware.

HOWEVER – with all the new technologies, I still also love digital cameras.  There is NO question that digital can be easier for low light situations.  It’s easier for me to take my end of the night shots with my digital camera.  It’s faster.  So I use both!

They do look differently, but I am currently working on processing them the same way so that you wont be able to tell the difference.  For now though, I want to SHOW you why I love film.

I have a few comparison shots – One film and One Digital for you to analyze.  Both are good in my opinion, but I just think the film is a touch better in the case of these examples.  They are also shot with roughly the same settings, and obviously by the same person – (me).  All the film shots are left – Digital Right.  I don’t think one is necessarily better than the other, I just personally prefer the look that film gives.

west virginia engagement photography

I met Tiffany and Jeff over at their house in wild and wonderful West Virginia a few weeks ago for their engagement session.  Tiffany and I had been talking, and she had told me about this great covered bridge they wanted to use for photos and it was only a few minutes from their house! I said of course I would come photograph them! A few random back roads later and we were there! Here are some highlights!

Also keep an eye on the blog in the next few weeks to see some images from their wedding at the Mountaineer Casino – also in West Virginia! I am proud to say there were some really neat images from the casino that sort of reminded me of being in Disney’s Hollywood Studio’s Streets of America for wedding photos.  I was PUMPED.  Anyway before we get to that, please enjoy their engagement session highlights!
