    As a photographer I have mainly focused on developing my own Black & White 35mm photography. Recently I have been asked to photograph a wedding. The people what their photographs in color. So I was wondering what do you think is the best colored 35 mm film to use?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Kodak Porta is an often used/recommended color film...with ISO 160 & 400 being the most common.

    Fuji Pro film is often used as well.

    Fuji Velvia, but I think that it does not portray skin tone very well.

    I wouldn't recommend that for weddings. Firstly, it's a positive (slide) film, which has a narrower latitude than negative film. And it's known for very saturated colors which usually isn't what you want for people/skin tones.

    I know a guy that uses porta for portraits. I would try out a test roll first though so you begin to get a feel for it
