Rocky Mountain Wedding With Handmade Details (7)

Rocky Mountain Wedding With Handmade Details (7)

This breathtaking rocky mountain wedding comes to us from Rebecca of Third Eye Photography based in Crested Butte, Colorado! Here’s Rebecca to tell us more:

Soaring through the air, Bernida looked down and saw WILL YOU MARRY ME? written on the ground. Nearby, where she would land, Adam knelt on one knee waiting for her answer. Avid hikers, boaters, bikers and nature-lovers, Bernida and Adam knew they wanted a mountain wedding to start their life-long journey together. Living in Denver, they often escaped to the beautiful mountain town of Crested Butte to enjoy the outdoors. Bernida and Adam got married on Crested Butte Mountain overlooking the Paradise Divide Mountain Range.

An Intimate Hawaiian Destination Wedding (11)

An Intimate Hawaiian Destination Wedding (9)

This stunning Hawaiian destination wedding comes to us from Piloni of Elusive Visions Photography! Here’s Piloni to tell us more:

I can honestly say that I have loved each and every wedding that I have had the pleasure of photographing. I consider myself extremely lucky to be working in paradise doing what I love, but once in a while I shoot a wedding that sets a whole new standard for me. It might be that I just fell in love with the couple during their session, it might be the location, but I think the most important factor which contributes to a successful shoot is a couple that isn’t afraid to go out of their way, to do something different, something that reflects them!

A Romantic Elopement in Venice, Italy (4)

A Romantic Elopement in Venice, Italy (4)

This stylish and intimate elopement comes to us from Luca, Wedding Photographer in Venice! Here’s Luca to tell us more:

David and Dorothy decided to elope in Venice for their tenth anniversary. They are a very joyful and stylish couple. We met at their hotel (Ad Palace, very nice boutique hotel near La Fenice theater), and after a few getting ready images, walked towards Palazzo Cavalli. This is the deputed palace for celebrating civil weddings. The ceremony itself is very short, but one of their windows allows for a very nice view of Canal Grande and Rialto Bridge. Afterwards they experienced Venice by water (as it is meant to be :-) thanks to a Gondola trip. We met again in the evening for a short photo walk at sunset. p.s. they are very creative and actually designed the logo one David’s twins: D2

How to Use Stop Motion Videos in a Wedding (1)

Today’s guest post comes to us from Michal Kriesch, a renowned Australian wedding photographer who specializes in custom design albums and capturing life’s precious moments. His goal is to capture the details and the mood of the day that will be preserved as memories forever.

Stop Motion Videos are the hot new trend of wedding photography. For those who haven’t heard of it yet, it’s a novel approach to wedding video, where series of images are used to create the effect of video through rapidly changing photos. It’s a unique way to capture your entire wedding experience in a short and beautiful video that’s unique, personal and thus great for sharing with friends and relatives.

How can you make a stop motion video for your wedding?

Well, it’s actually not as difficult as it may seem – although it does require some planning and some post-processing work, almost anyone with the right camera and a dedication can do it. So here are some of the most important aspects of shooting a quality stop motion video for a wedding:

Colorful Springtime Engagement Styled Shoot (9)

This colorful springtime engagement shoot comes to us from Edward Lai Photography based in Vancouver, British Columbia! Here’s Edward to tell us more:

For our stylized engagement shoot we wanted a 1940’s courtship vibe, almost one that you saw in The Notebook. Maddy and Luc were young lovers, innocent yet passionate in their love. Their playfulness showed how young they were, but the look in Luc’s eyes when his made contact with Maddy’s let you know the seriousness of his heart.

Vintage Style at North Carolina's Historic Revolution Mill (9)

This gorgeous vintage style wedding comes to us from Sara of Whitebox Photo based in Madison, North Carolina! Here’s Sara to tell us more:

I loved the vintage feel of Kendall and Cam’s wedding and all of the personal details that they added to make their celebration unique. Her dress was purchased from a vintage shop, their dessert table featured her grandmother’s recipe book for the truffles, and the bride and groom did a coin toss to see who would say their vows first because of a coin toss that occurred while they were dating.

Get to Know a Wedding Photographer in Atlanta, GA: Katie Snyder Photography (10)

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Katie of Katie Snyder Photography based in Atlanta, GA! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company

Katie Snyder Photography started (unofficially) in 2003 when I first started studying photography in college. What I thought would be a fun hobby soon became the focus of my life and I began putting all of my entrepreneurial spirit into it. In 2006, my husband, Dan, and I moved to Atlanta, GA and I began to pursue it as my full time career. For many years, the company was ran by just the two of us (me as photographer and Dan as photo editor), but in 2012, we began expanding in order to better accommodate our clients. We now have 4 main photographers, office help, and a slew of videographers and second photographers that we call upon regularly. We split our time between Atlanta and destination weddings around the world! I also teach a variety of workshops for upcoming photographers as well as hobbyists.
