Bright Rustic Wedding by Laura Lee Photography (6)

FAVORITES-2016-08-14KatieandZackWedding70241-114

This charming real wedding, brought to us by Laura Lee Photography, is the epitome of rustic chic! Here’s Laura to tell us more:

Katie and Zack met in high school (they we’re introduced though a mutual friend) during their freshman year. They both thought the other was totally out of their league, so they kept their secret crushes to themselves for YEARS. Fast forward to a couple years ago, when Katie (on a whim) wished Zack a happy birthday. It was the spark that had allowed them to reconnect and hit it off!

Meet a Wedding Photographer in Georgetown Township, MI: Apaige Photography (4)

unnamed (21)

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Ashley of Apaige Photography, based in Georgetown Township, Michigan! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

My name is Ashley, although I go by Paige. I started photographing at the age of 16, and interned with multiple wedding / studio photographers in high school. After that introduction, I fell in love with the reactions received from imagery, and decided to go to get further educated on the discipline of photography. From 18-22 I went to college, first at a community college (Lake Michigan College in Benton Harbor, MI), and then transferred to Grand Valley State University to finish my Bachelors’ in Photography, and Advertising. Within those years I also got a minor in Business so I could have the ability to run my own efficiently. The roots of my work have been providing confidence in (mostly) women. I began this body
image project around the age of 20, and it has been the focus of my non-clientele work.

Meet a Wedding Photographer in New York, NY: Parenthesis Photography (3)

parenthesisphotography.com New England Documentary Wedding Photography

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Kathleen of Parenthesis Photography, based in New York, NY! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I create wedding photography for couples who don’t want the typical light and bright images, but instead something a little more raw, adventurous, and cinematic. I studied film, art and art history in college and my photography is very influenced by those things. My main goals are to capture my couples’ weddings in the most unobtrusive way possible, and to be there for them throughout the process to make things less stressful. I love educating people about photography, why lighting is important and how we can easily incorporate things into the day that will help me create the best images possible for them. In my free time I shoot a lot of portraits and landscapes.

Meet a Wedding Photographer in Paris, France: Dagmara Bojenko Photographe (2)

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Dagmara  of Dagmara Bojenko Photographe, based in Paris, France! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I am a Polish Canadian Photographer based in Paris, France, since 2012. Growing up in a multicultural environment allowed me to quickly learn and adapt to new surroundings, as well as be able to read people’s expressions before even understanding their language. To this day, connecting to people in that way drives me in my work and knowing that I can lay their emotions onto a photo is the ultimate gift. I love working with people from different backgrounds and discovering their wedding traditions as well as their unique perspectives on life and love. I approach every photoshoot with a desire to create a connection between myself and my subject, which goes beyond the image itself. Photography is an experience, not just a final product. I realize how intimate it is to point your camera at someone and ask them to be themselves, so I strive to leave something of myself in my interaction with my subjects. I compare my photography to a couple’s dance, where both parties need to open up, trust and share of themselves in order to create beauty.
