Denver wedding photography by Leona Campbell - Colorado WPJA

My style of wedding photography is best described as creative wedding photojournalism. I care deeply about documenting the fleeting moments that make your wedding or elopement day uniquely and authentically yours. When I'm not busy photographing weddings, my husband and I love to spend time in the outdoors. A typical vacation for us usually features a multi-day backcountry trek, unseasonably inclement weather, and more freeze-dried meals than I'd care to admit. I am also a certified Nature & Forest Therapy Guide through the Association for Nature and Forest Therapy. I offer public and private guided shinrin-yoku experiences (aka forest bathing or forest therapy). I specialize in private walks for couples, which can be a wonderful way to relax in nature and reconnect with each other in advance of or just following your wedding or elopement celebrations. My guiding business is called Wind in Pines LLC. If you’re interested in adding a forest bathing walk to your wedding celebrations, whether as a couple or for your wedding party or bridal shower, let me know! In addition to my work as a photographer and forest bathing guide, I volunteer as a bird handler with a local raptor educational organization called HawkQuest. If you think I might be the right photographer for your wedding, I’d love to hear from you. [Denver Wedding Photographer]

san antonio tx wedding photographer Shannon Cain

Born in Austin, and raised in Dripping Springs, I learned the small town way-of-life at an early age. Being country at heart, you will often see me dressed in boots. After attending Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, where I met the love of my life, my husband and I decided to plant our roots in New Braunfels, a town full of culture with a strong community. My family grew by one as my daughter joined this world in October of 2013. And just when I thought my heart could not be more full, we added another little girl to our world in November 2015. I am an avid believer in finding that passion, pursuing it, and making your dreams become a reality. Who says you can not make a career doing what you love? That is what photography is to me...my passion, my dream come true. I take pride in being able to connect with my clients and capture their personalities and style. Natural light warms my heart and a gorgeous sunset makes me weak in the knees. I am always creatively challenging myself to take an ordinary moment, an ordinary photo, and make it extraordinary.

Finding those moments and saving them for you is what I do. [Missoula Wedding Photographer]

As a goalkeeper, you have to anticipate movements, much the same way you have to anticipate special moments happening at a wedding.

Atlanta Wedding Photographer Orlando Suarez - Georgia WPJA

From the Latin term viridis, meaning “green”, Viridian is a medium blue-green shade that resembles a rich teal. It was also the name of a green design movement in the late 90’s. For us it’s simply a play on Lissette’s beautiful green eyes and the images they generate through a camera. Coming from an artistic background, Orlando developed drawing, painting and animation skills that led to awards and scholarships for his work. We shoot mainly for candid moments when our subjects are camera unaware, while lightly blending in natural portraits. How cool is it that we get to meet new people, document the best day of their lives and gain new friends; all while doing what you truly love in the process? It’s fantastic! We like good music, interesting design, vacation getaways, volunteer work, dining out with friends and all things Italian. Most of all, we love photography as our way to express a sense of what’s happening in the moment. So the feeling comes through even years from now. We don’t take pictures. We make fine art from your memories. [Atlanta Wedding Photographer]

Houston wedding photography by Jill Goehring of Texas

I graduated from the University of Houston with my Master’s Degree in Accountancy and started a career as an auditor in 2015. Only a few months after I started, I felt out of place. Photography has always been my passion growing up. When I was little, I would borrow a camera phone from one of my cousins and start taking photos of things around me. In my senior year of high school when one of my good friends got this very awesome Sony camera phone (it was not a smartphone yet), she would let me use it an document our memories of senior years, per my request of course :). I used the paychecks from my very first part-time job to buy myself a DSLR and start taking photos for friends and family. So yes, it would be so much fun and exciting to start a photography business. While people spend 4 years of college trying to learn to do a job, I spent my 4 years to learn how to do a different job, not photography. I started doing wedding photography and fell in love. I fell in love with the exciting and upbeat environment of a wedding, I fell in love with the emotions that a bride goes through on her wedding date, I fell in love with how the guests dance the night away and how the wedding cakes taste just so indulging, and I fell in love with being the one to document all of that. So that was how Half A Rice Studios was born. [Houston Wedding Photographer]

Oklahoma City wedding photographer Alexandra Dugan

Hi! I’m Alex, a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Oklahoma City. I accidentally stumbled into photography while in college... You see, I was taking an intro class simply out of necessity as an elective for my declared PR major. At the end of the semester, we were assigned to document something and tell its story with a photo essay. I redid this assignment 3 times before landing on one I liked, which was completely out of my comfort zone. I eventually received my graded project with a handwritten note that read: “I hope you continue to keep telling stories." Well, I did -- and here I am. I would later graduate from the University of Central Oklahoma with a BA in Photographic Arts, under the tutelage of two renown, innovative, and incredibly inspiring professors. Along with shooting weddings, I continue to refine my skills and knowledge by pursuing further education via conferences, lectures, and books from the greatest photography minds past and present. And although this was never my plan, I have now officially stepped into the role of educator myself. From guest teaching in a classroom setting at UCO, to demonstrating on-location posing, to speaking at conferences such as PhotoCon and Photo Expo. Let me tell you, it's probably a relief to all my friends and family that I now have an actual outlet to talk about anything photography/LR related. (I really love talking shop.) Photography is my life, and I'm continually in awe that it's also my career. Everyone wants their dream job, and I can truly say I have mine. [Oklahoma Wedding Photographer]

David Braun - California and Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Calm and unobtrusive, yet determined to get the shot. Initially, I was somewhat intimidated at the prospect of shooting weddings professionally, as a business. Fortunately, that changed after my first summer as a wedding photographer in South Lake Tahoe, California and I never looked back. The feedback I received during weddings and upon delivery of the final product motivated me to continue my pursuit of wedding photography. Today, I am an experienced wedding photographer, having shot weddings in downtown Sacramento, the California foothills, Quincy, Truckee, Reno, and almost every venue in Lake Tahoe. I am deeply passionate about photography and capturing the most meaningful moments of your wedding. I specialize in a photojournalistic approach, documenting your day as it unfolds. As a seasoned photographer with a wide range of freelance experience, I know how to anticipate the unique, natural moments of a dynamic event. I spot the key moments, big and small, that you will want stunningly, permanently recorded. Creativity, attention to detail, and dedication define the services provided. Whenever possible, I utilize both my artistic skill for shooting the natural environment and my experience as a wedding and event photographer to produce timeless, compelling imagery that truly captures the moment and the place you have chosen to get married. Formal or casual, you have a vision for your wedding and I would like to be there to tell your story with my camera ... [Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer]

San Francisco wedding photography by Paul Gargagliano of N. California

Here is my approach simmered down to a concentrate: "My entire goal in my wedding photography practice is to make photographs that transport viewers back to the day. I create images that can be stepped into, entered physically. Through the utilization of movement, emotion, and light I accomplish this. The wedding day goes by very quickly. If the images are strong in this way, they can help the day to live on for all the years to come, for you, for your family, and for whoever couldn't be there, because they weren't born yet." TLDR: Over the years my friends have told me that their wedding day went by faster than you could possibly imagine. I heard them, but it wasn’t until my own wedding, that I fully understood what they meant. From the moment our beloved friends and family began arriving in this miraculous unending flow, I could already feel the specific indescribable joy slipping away. I wished I had a few dozen of myself to run around and take it all in, to reminisce about childhood with every cousin, to introduce my old friends to my wife’s old friends, to squeeze all the shoulders, to share all the laughter. Luckily we hired a fantastic photographer, so we will have beautiful prints and albums to supplement our memories for the rest of our lives. As a photographer, I am primarily a storyteller (I also write fiction.) Weddings are epic stories, usually squeezed into the space of a single day. As I photograph a wedding, I look for all the distinct stories that are unfolding, and I aspire to make images that will recall them. My work ethic is strong, and also, I just love making emotional, dynamic photographs, so I pretty much work nonstop from the moment I arrive at a wedding. For a single day your fiery grandma will break bread with your freshman year roommate. Your best friend from elementary school very well may fall in love with your partner’s cousin. These things matter, so I make it my job to document these moments. One of my goals is to make a meaningful photograph of every guest. There are photographers who set up the standard moments, and do little else. I tend to think the in-between moments are just as important (if not more so.) I try to be in all the places you didn’t have time to be, to observe all the people and events you didn’t have time to observe, and to document them for you. There are also photographers who chase the couple around all day long. As a result, there are guests who aren’t photographed even once. These wedding guests are the most important people in your life. Many of them will travel from great distances to show their love and commitment to you, and to the partnership you are entering into. When times get tough, it is these people who will support you in the long years of your marriage. So, yes, I tell stories about weddings, but not just any old story, I try to tell a gorgeous story that honors the vision you have for your union and its celebration. In order to tell a story that honors a your vision, I need to communicate very well. I ask questions and I listen closely, so that I can understand what matters most to you. In the end you will have your prints and your albums. Your photographs will remind you why you spent all those hours planning. They will remind you of all the help and warmth and support your family and friends brought to the occasion. They will remind you that an overwhelming number of people care about you, and it isn’t just that they care about you, they care about your love and your partnership.
