This Saturday, arson was confirmed in an abandoned building in Dayton, Ohio. Thick smoke and huge fire got the residents concerned, but one wedding photographer and a couple took an advantage of the situation. In the middle of the reception, they noticed the fire, rushed to the scene and the building in flames as a backdrop.
The royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sure caused a lot of attention all over the world. Many photos have been taken and published, but one of them went viral on social media, showing the newlyweds holding hands from above. The photographer behind the image is Yui Mok, a staff photographer at Press Association (PA). He answered the questions on Twitter and revealed how he took this photo which received so much attention.
Your wedding day is one of the happiest days of your life. You’re surrounded by family and friends to watch you get married to the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. You also want photos of the day to look back on in years to come, so you hire a photographer. But then what if that photographer doesn’t show up?
That’s what happened to newlyweds the Dunaways, of Utah. At the Utah State Capitol in July 2017, the day was perfect. But their photographer, David Bowe Jacobs, owner of Bellissima Images Photography didn’t show up. Local TV station, KSL, went to investigate…
Some couples want a nice low key wedding. Others, however, want it to be somewhat extravagant. But sometimes that extravagance comes at a cost. In the case of one couple, pyrotechnics during the happy couple’s first dance caused the venue to go up in flames. It starts off as many first dances do. The happy couple is happily dancing away with friends looking on, cheering.
But then the cheers turn to screams as they notice the decorations above have caught fire. And it all goes downhill from there, really. The whole thing was shared to Facebook, where it’s already received a few comments criticising the venue for not having fire extinguishers handy.
You’ve seen some crazy wedding photos on DIYP before. This time, allow Abbi and Callen Hearne to blow your mind with the wedding photos they took. The couple photographed an adventurous wedding of Kim and Ryan in a desert near Moab, Utah. They shared the photos with us and they were taken on a space net 400 feet above a canyon! It’s one of the most colorful weddings I’ve ever seen, and even though the photos make me dizzy just from looking at them – I’m impressed by both the idea and the execution.
Junebug Weddings, one of the world’s most popular online wedding planning resources, has recently finished their 10th annual contest. Out of nearly 9,000 images, they selected the top 50 wedding photos from around the world. We have selected some of them, and it’s a gallery of strong emotions and wonderful moments captured on camera.
Wedding photography doesn’t often offer the creative opportunities photographers would like. The venues aren’t always that spectacular, you’re often working to a pretty strict time schedule, and some couples just don’t want to get all that creative.
For photographer Christine Diaz, though, there’s always time for inspiration to strike. With the outfits of the bride and groom, mixed with the beauty of the San Francisco City Hall, Christine was indeed struck. DIYP got in touch with Christine to find out a little more about that inspiration and how the image was made.
Being a maid of honor is a big privilege and carries great responsibility. Sharilyn Wester performed her duty and made her best friend’s wedding photos unforgettable.
While Rebecca Foster and her husband James did the wedding photoshoot, Sharilyn proposed to take some photos where she’ll be tossing the bride’s veil. Photographer Ashley Hempel agreed, and in no time, Sharilyn took her task. But it turned out her and the bride had a different idea in mind, and Sharylin started acting so goofy, that both the groom and the photographer were caught by surprise.
Non-pro, non-wedding photographer here. Last year I took a few pictures at my sister’s wedding. My cousin, having his own wedding coming up, saw some of my shots on Facebook and asked if I would photograph their wedding. I agreed.
I had 8 full months to prep. My experience and comfort zone consists mainly of landscapes, astrophotography, and some OK candid stuff, though I like to push into new styles and subjects to force myself to learn more.
Some couples dream of having a classic white wedding and the others want something out of the ordinary. But James and Ashley took unordinary to a new level by exchanging vows at Mt. Everest Base camp, at 17,600 ft. The obligatory tux and a dress were there even at temperatures well below zero. And they were fortunate to get a photographer who is as adventurous as them to capture it all on camera.
Charleton Churchill took the photos of this brave elopement. Considering that the ceremony was everything but ordinary, so are the photos. The magnificent view, the beautiful bride and groom in wedding attire and hiking boots, surrounded by the view so gorgeous that it makes you gasp in awe. We got in touch with Charleton and got to hear more about this adventure. Although the photos are magnificent, it took a lot of effort to get them shot and he and the couple went through a lot. But it was worth it.
