We haven’t forgotten about our monthly blog highlights posts — or Friday roundups for that matter. I’ve been a little sidetracked being halfway across the world and all but I’m now back on US soil and ready to get you caught up on November’s best of the best. Check out our interview with one of the pioneers of candid wedding photography in India, a superb tablescape inspired by Thanksgiving, a truly romantic engagement shoot with the Eiffel Tower as a backdrop and more in this month’s highlights!

Interview Highlights

Get to Know a Wedding Photographer: Mark Jaworski Studios (9)

Mark Jaworski of Mark Jaworski Studios

What tips or advice can you give to couples who are looking to hire a photographer to cover their big day?

Find a photographer whose work you truly adore. Avoid photographers who seem overly formulaic, jaded, or downright bored with shooting weddings. Choose a photographer who is genuinely happy to be a part of you and your fiancé’s big day. After all, you will be seeing more of your photographer on your wedding day than you will of many other people. You should find them encouraging, pleasant, and personable.

What is your favorite part of the wedding day to capture?

The first look. It’s always such an intimate moment with raw emotion. And since my motto is “I shoot what I feel”, this part of the day is stellar!

I’m known for my approach to telling wedding stories driven by moments of surprise, drama, and intrigue.
