Cleveland, OH Wedding Photographer Dennis Crider

Hello there! Welcome to Dennis Crider Photography. I am a wedding documentary-styled photographer in Cleveland Ohio but open to destination weddings around the world. Weddings have been a tradition for centuries in every culture. Your photographer shouldn't be so traditional. I know each wedding is different because YOU are different. You want something tailored to show your personality and style. That's what I do. I document your story and your family/friends. Not the traditional style of pictures you receive from the "Guy with a camera selling his services for next to nothing". Q: What influences me to capture those tender yet fun moments? A: To make each wedding I do, better than the last one. Q: How many weddings do you shoot per year on average? 18 Q: What photography internships or apprenticeships have contributed to your training/education? A: Obsession with America's best and what makes them the best. Q: What other photography interests do you have besides shooting weddings? A: Shooting for 5 years, besides hanging out with my 2 kids and my wife, this is it. This is my passion. Q: What makes you stand out above the crowd of photographers: A: a chair to stand on. If no chair, I jump really high. I want to go beyond good and be original with style. It's a passion to capture the best non-fake, unscripted and organic moments of your day that showcases your wedding. Not to recreate the 100 other previous weddings. [Cleveland Wedding Photographer]

Monty Soungpradith is an Ohio based wedding photojournalist

I’m a photographer, dreamer, classically trained pianist, and natural born creative. I’m a recycler and do my best to live within my means. I’m a college graduate who paid way too much for a degree. Dated for 6 months, engaged for 6 more and been married for over 15 years to one of the most compassionate women you’ll ever meet. I’m a father of two incredibly inventive kids who can build you a home out of cardboard or at the very least a kick-ass Ironman suit. I get genuinely excited about all the possibilities that come from collaborating with my clients. I have a relaxed and easy demeanor and have often been described as an, “Island of calm in sea of chaos.” I love new technologies, slightly obsessed with spicy foods, and thrive on creativity. More importantly, my most treasured possession is my family. [Columbus Wedding Photographer]

New Hampshire wedding photographer, Sarah Martinez

Hi! I’m always ready for an adventure and I love running around in the wild with my couples, dresses that aren't always perfect, and giving couples the space to take in as many moments of their wedding as possible. My photography background takes me from starting out as a photojournalist for a newspaper in Ohio, to being the second photographer to an incredible wedding team in San Diego, all the way to starting my own photography business here in New Hampshire. I’ve driven all across the US many times, calling a bunch of those spots home and combined with my life experiences, my work is heavily influenced by the person that I’ve become out of it. In addition to the celebrations in life, it’s also the heartaches that helped me realize just how important capturing how a moment feels will impact your appreciation of the images delivered. Therefore, I work to get to know you two and use my years of experience to anticipate and embolden moments so I can capture all those genuine smiles, tears, and healthy doses of nervous anticipation. Professionally I’ve had wedding features published in print magazines like Seacoast Weddings, Southern New England Weddings – Destination Edition, and New Hampshire Bride along with a wide variety of blogs and online publications, I've been featured as the resident artist at a local art show, a finalist in a worldwide photography competition, chosen as the third-ranked photographer in my state, as well as being chosen as a top photographer in NH to watch in a nationwide report.

I studied photojournalism at Western Kentucky University & that's where I developed the passion for storytelling. I never lost the childhood dream of being an artist & I think it gives me a unique edge to how I photograph people's lives. I don't want a simple snapshot.

Michelle M. Peters, a WPJA wedding photographer from PA, was focusing on her creative side at a young age.

Michelle Peters began focusing on her multiple creativities at a young age, but did not get involved in the photography area until a pro photojournalist offered her a mentorship, after she finished her education at the Pennsylvania State University. She was guided into Wedding Photojournalism and loves to capture all the moments of your special day, while maintaining an unobtrusive view. Although she still likes to hide in her 'secret studio' and shoot macro, her joy is now shooting the joy of your wedding day! [State College Wedding Photographer]

Shaunte Dittmar, of California, is a wedding photographer for West Shore Cafe
Picture this: It's mid-summer, with temps in the low-80s, a cloudless sky, and oh-so-light gusts keeping everyone just cool enough. Maybe you're out on a bluff, overlooking the ocean, or in a fragrant, blooming garden. A scene is set for the ideal summer wedding. But—back in reality here—there's no way that six to eight months or more down the road any couple can forecast such pristine conditions for their wedding day. Despite their idealized image, summer weddings can...Read more
Denis Gostev, of New York, is a wedding photographer for St. Francis Xavier Church
You can argue that of all the photos on your wedding day, the ones taken during the ceremony are the most meaningful—that’s why you’re there, right? It’s ironic, then, that wedding photojournalists regularly have the most trouble shooting their best work in the churches where these very ceremonies take place. Often times, significant moments unfold in front of camera lenses that are too far away, positioned at awkward angles, and photographers are forced to operate under...Read more
Philippe Swiggers, of , is a wedding photographer for Puglia
While wedding party stereotypes still exist, most people realize there’s more to being a bridesmaid than looking beautiful, more to being a groomsman than adding life and excitement to the reception party. But even the bride and groom might not fully understand just how helpful these roles can be, long after the train is bustled and the speeches are given. With a little direction (and not that much effort), members of the wedding party can facilitate great wedding photojournalism —a favor that...Read more
A woman holds a little girl's hand while the bride kneels down and smiles at her before the ceremony in this wedding photo | Children photography at weddings.
The start of the great divide between the sexes can be witnessed a lot earlier in life than most believe. Girls and boys participating in weddings around the world demonstrate this time and time again. Frequently, little girls will relish the opportunity to dress up in their finest, while the boys do so begrudgingly, kicking and screaming all the way to the altar, so to speak. However, it doesn’t take long before that divide is bridged, and children are children again, with neither girls nor...Read more
Photo of the Bride & Groom with the guests caught in the rain running for cover.
You will be told some traditions — Hindu, Maltese — consider rain a good omen on a wedding day. You will be told a wet knot is harder to untie. You may — correctly — think that if the two of you can face the day's elements with aplomb and grace, you're more likely to face life's challenges with strength and flexibility. The truth is, you can plan for the possibility of rain on your wedding day . (If it's an outdoor wedding and depending on the climate, in...Read more
