Wedding Photojournalism

Before my very busy wedding season begins in a few weeks I thought I’d do a little post on wedding photojournalism. I would have to define my style as an artistic photojournalist. I want to tell the story, and I also want it pretty! When some couples meet with with me they are a little surprised that they can expect to receive a minimum of 1,200+ images of their wedding day. On a wedding day, I’m not only documenting the details, the portraits, the kiss after “I do”, but all the range of emotions of everyone that day. That can take a lot of images to capture. I am documenting an emotional history of the wedding day. I am inspired by a quote by William Faulkner, “The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fix so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again, since it is life.” I hope occasionally that this magic happens. For inspirational Wedding Photojournalism check out the Wedding Photojournalists Association which I have been a member of for many year. I find much inspiration there!

    The groom kissing a (hopefully but maybe it was his sister?!?) a guest with the bride looking on has always been one of my fav pics of yours!

    From the crying bride: those are happy tears at the very emotional speech by my matron of honor. Marie - you did an amazing job of capturing that moment and it really does take me back.
