Using film and digital together?

The last two engagement shoots I did were exactly this: film and digital together. Both DNG files and scanned negatives. Have a wedding coming up and plan to do the same.

Curious if anyone else does this? I'm mainly a film user and really love film but am finding myself starting to use digital more and more, notably with using Totally Rad's Replichrome so the images look similar. But honestly, I love the advantages of both so am trying to utilize both in my work and projects (although the focus is more on film, with the digital "acting" as a very flexible film camera).

Pentax K-7 with whatever lens feels right ... meh, currently 24mm F2.8 Sigma MF lens.
Pentax PZ-1p with ... well, whatever lens feels right again but usually CV 40mm Ultron F2 or DA*55 F1.4
Pentax 645 with color film. Usually the 55mm or 75mm lens.

I used to do that until about 2 or 3 years ago. I still shoot film and love it, but for paid work I go digital because of faster turn around.

Not uncommon. I shot the Contax 645 and K-3 at events. I I know a couple who also mix it up. He shoot a Contax 645 and she shoots a Canon 5DIII. They do all their wedding mixed.
