Parents are bring in decorations, ministers, students are baking cakes and preparing gourmet meals and pretty much everyone is helping out in any and every way. I offered to be one of the photographers for the event because it was the least I could do and I don't trust myself to make any meal with the pressure of knowing a hundred people are going to try it out, you know?
I've spent hours looking at wedding blogs, Pinterest and the lot looking at wedding photographers and studying photography styles. The photographers that have piqued my interest the most are Jonas Peterson, Samm Blake and Emma Jane from Emma Jane Nation. They all have this cinematic approach to their photos, going through their portfolios is like seeing a montage on One Tree Hill or, I don't know, Scrubs.
They capture all these perfect little moments where the dad is tearing up at the sight of his daughter or a granny is laughing at something one of the groomsmen said or when the bride and groom are looking into each other's eyes at the altar.
There's also this sharpness to the photos, this clarity. And that makes me think of The September Issue when Grace talks about how she likes everything with soft edges and rosy but most people want it pinched and sharp, but most of these photographers have found a way to combine that pinched and rosy aspect.
