Boutique Film Lab was created from a passion to create in an analog medium. Providing a high-quality service at an affordable cost gives everyone an opportunity to do the same. While we enjoy the convenience that digital technology brings to the modern world, we want everyone to experience the joy of shooting with film. Whether it’s the unique feel of an old camera, the slow rhythm that comes along with each click of the shutter, or just the general experience of having to wait to find out what masterpiece you have just created. We are thrilled to offer an intimate lab experience that not only processes and scans film, but also working with you to build your skills as a film photographer. The film community has been so good to us, many times over. The least we can do to is to give back by sharing our knowledge, spread our passion, and provide a service that keeps film alive.

BFL is a small boutique lab located in Nashville, TN that focuses on delivering high-quality images. We don’t process thousands of rolls every month and therefore we treat every order as if it were our own. The value of working with us is that you will have high attention to detail, personalized feedback and personal customer service. If this is something that you are looking for in a film lab, we would be happy to work with you.

The camera catches light. The photographer catches life.”
