FAQ

Do you shoot film or digital?

I exclusively shoot film. I chose film because film stands out significantly to me. Shooting film can be slow and costly but I love the creative process with devotion. The authenticity, colors, tones, depth, and quality of imagery are exceptional and unmatched in other mediums. Film has truly elevated everything I shoot, making it timeless and aesthetically captivating. It has pushed me to be more aware technically and creatively, and provided a new perspective as a photographer. Waiting for the film to develop is both agonizing and thrilling, and when I finally get to see my work, that’s when I feel myself as a true artist the most. My work continues to push me as an artist, and to learn to be a better storyteller everyday.

How did you get started in film?

Growing up in Hong Kong, I lived and breathed art for as long as I can remember, which led me to New York in hopes of pursuing my artistic dreams. Through my degree in fashion design, I developed my skills in graphics and an eye for color and aesthetics. I started my career in children’s wear but realized my heart did not belong in the fashion industry. After freelancing in graphics and co-founding Juniper + Lavender, a wedding planning business, I began to explore new hobbies and ventures. I've always had a digital camera but was curious about film photography for a long time, so I finally took the leap and bought my first film camera in 2018. I fell deeply in love with film photography, which is why I exclusively shoot film. I never dreamt I’d become a professional photographer, but now that I’ve found my passion, I’m not letting go.

What kind of gear do you use?

I shoot mainly with a medium format film camera, PENTAX645N, for portrait sessions and events. I interchange between 2 lens for my PENTAX645N- the Pentax SMC FA 75mm F/2.8, and the Contax Zeiss Planar T 80mm F/2. I also have a 35mm film camera, NikonF100, as my main camera to travel with for its more compact size and weight. My go to film stocks are Kodak Portra400 and Portra800, and occasionally Fuji pro400h and Kodak Gold 200. I do not use flash or reflectors, and rely solely on natural light.

What is the process of film photography?

Film photography starts with understanding my camera and knowing what my settings should be when I first take the photo. Then I send the finished rolls of film to film labs for them to develop and scan into the computer. They also go through an extensive process to make sure all my photos are cleaned and color corrected. When the photos are scanned and ready for me, they email me the online gallery and I download the JPGs straight to my computer, where I lightly edit them in Lightroom before sending a full digital gallery to you as the client.

What do you shoot?

My portfolio includes portraits, families, engagements, anniversaries, maternity, newborn, babies, lifestyle sessions, pets, birthdays, travels etc. If what you’re looking for is not listed above, I’m always open to new challenges and adventures! Just reach out to me and we can talk. ;)

Do you shoot weddings?

I’m sorry but unfortunately I do not shoot weddings. I photograph wedding details and decor I personally designed and set up for documentation purposes only, in order to keep my website consistent. However, I know many wonderful wedding film photographers and I’d be happy to refer you to them!

Do you travel for photoshoots?

I’d love to travel for photoshoots, but that may not be realistic cost-wise for the client. I do travel quite a bit in general, so be sure to follow me on Instagram to see where I’ll go next to offer sessions!

What forms of payment do you accept?

I currently accept cash, checks made out to {Priscilla Choi}, Paypal, Chase Zelle, or Venmo.

What is your usual turnaround time?

Generally, the turnaround time for the full gallery is around 3-4 weeks. During busy seasons (May-September), clients can expect the full gallery in around 4-6 weeks.

How many images will I receive?

This is typically based on the hours you hire me for and how many rolls of film I shoot. Generally speaking, for a mini session (half hour), I provide around 30-40 images. For a full hour session, it’s around 60-80 images. But for events, it will be dependent on the type of event and what format of film I shoot with. Typically a 2 hour event will receive 100-120 images, a 3 hour event will receive 120-150 images, and so on.

How do you deliver the images?

I create online galleries in JPGs through Pixieset for all clients where they can view, download, share, and order prints—all in one place.

Do I have to order prints through you?

No, you can absolutely order them from your Pixieset gallery directly, or my Pixieset Print Shop if you are interested in one of my prints! Just hover over the image you'd like to order, and click the "shopping cart" icon, then select the size of print you'd like and checkout. Please let me know if you have any questions!
