Hi! I’m Katrina, in short I’m a documentary wedding photographer. I have been working as a wedding photographer for almost 5 years now and I have loved every minute! I always feel so honoured when a couple choose me, not only to photograph but also share, one of the most important days of their lives. The most important part of my job is to capture the images that portray the couple and their loved one as naturally as possible, telling the story of their wedding day and the individual personalities within it. A lot of couples find it really daunting to have their photo taken, which is why I work in such a natural way, allowing everyone to have fun and relax while I try to blend into the background. I don’t do any forced posing and definitely no ‘look and smile’ shots, I want the moments that I capture to have happened organically.

This romantic vintage inspired styled shoot comes to us from Kimberli Lowe Photography, based in Fort Worth, TX! Here’s Kimberli to tell us more:
One of the wonderful things about living in Texas is that you can plan an outdoor wedding for all year. While we do have all 4 seasons, and the winter time has been known to bring snow and ice, it’s generally much milder than our northern counterparts. Winter weddings here are lovely and we wanted to showcase the charm you can find if you think outside the traditional summertime calendar.

This fun infographic, created by Taylor of Invaluable, showcases wedding traditions from around the world. We’ll see some crazy concepts, like how in Germany, couples physically saw a log on their big day. However, a few of the traditions are super cute like the Mexican knot-tying or the Philippine dove release. Scroll through to see if any would work for your big day!
Every bride wants to make her wedding unique and perfectly tailored to her personality, which can be a daunting task. An easy way to incorporate individuality into a ceremony is through the inclusion of traditions. As some weddings move away from classic elements like garter toss, the adherence to two wedding colors and even the traditional first look, it is nice to find a way to still incorporate some traditions. A fun way to modernize is through infusing the cultural heritage of the soon-to-be married couple.
Taylor spends her free time watching nineties romcoms, and helping her friends pull together the details of their walk down the aisle. As an obsessive organizer she loves to focus on all of the details.
Today’s real wedding brought to us by Style & Story Creative (Columbus, OH) is brimming with glamorous vintage details! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:
Our wedding was utterly breathtaking. For getting married Labor Day weekend in Ohio we were uncertain what weather we would end up with. The sky was a crisp blue with beautiful big white clouds and a nice summer breeze. We were married in a catholic cathedral style church, the church I was lucky enough to grow up in, in small town rural Delphos, Ohio . The kind of church built in the late 1800s with floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows, intricate and detailed paintings, and stunning woodwork.
Today’s featured wedding video comes to us from Marry Me Movies, based in Sydney, Australia! Here’s the Marry Me Movies team to tell us more:
Every bride is stunning and every dress is beautiful. Coming from an Asian background, May’s dress was like a layered piece of artwork, bathed in yellow and white, splashed with bursts of blue. The colours were striking, especially against the interior of the Rendezvous hotel, and the exterior of the urban Melbourne backdrop. For the reception, May changed into a long, red dress that was intricately embroidered. Oh, and our wedding cinematographer noted that William looked handsome too, of course!
