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.
Brides Magazine is all about weddings, yet they don’t really seem to like wedding photographers. After they advised the brides not to feed their photographers, now they have another “ingenious” piece of advice. They say you should hire a professional photographer, but they consider pros only those who use Nikon or Canon. And only full frame cameras come into consideration!
With drones becoming more and more popular at weddings, it was only a matter of time before an accident happened. Although it’s not the photographer or video guy to blame for this one. Apparently it’s the groom’s fault. The Boston Herald reports that New Hampshire man, Barry Billcliff had just married his new bride when he decided to fly his drone during the reception.
Two guests at the August wedding, Kelly Eaton and Kneena Ellis, have now filed a negligence lawsuit against both the groom and Searles Castle Event Management, Inc. where the incident took place. Eaton says that the drone broke her nose and orbital bone and left her with concussion when the drone struck her head. Ellis is also claiming a concussion as well as lacerations from blades hitting her head.
For many photographers, there are shots you see in your head that you one day hope to have the opportunity to create. Those visions can live there for years, just waiting to exist in the real world. For Phillipines based photographer Jiggie Alejandrino, the image above was one such photograph.
When I first saw this photograph, I was immediately drawn in. I wanted to find out more about it, so DIYP got in touch with Jiggie to get some background on the inspiration and how it was made.
I am writing an open letter to Vicars. Not all Vicars, I hasten to add, but unfortunately it’s becoming such a regular occurrence, that I feel compelled to write to all those that it applies.
You do not have to be religious to understand the depths of human spirit that a Church ceremony invokes. I have been in some ceremonies as a photographer where I have felt the incredible amount of love lift from the congregation, it is almost palpable. In others, the singing and the sermon have genuinely moved me to the point of tears.
