Inspirational Wedding Photos

Wedding photography inspiration is fairly easy for me. This week I want to share some of the ways I get inspired. This happens at the crux of words and pictures. I am around weddings often and each one has its similarities. But there are quite a bit of unique characteristics if you look below the surface. And it’s mostly due to the brides of today having weddings on their own terms – individualistic! And I like that because each week it's a new set of challenges and fresh inspiration.

Pinterest & Inspiration

A few weeks ago I shared some wedding traditions – where they came from and how they lasted over the centuries. But today’s brides have access to something bigger and better than ever before – Pinterest! This little app will be 6 years old this month. It’s barely out of kindergarten & I can’t imagine what it’ll look like when it grows up.

Sharing Pinterest Boards

So here we are with the ability to share images. These are where ideas start and inspiration is found. I often get asked, “Do you mind looking at other photos so we can explain what we like?” I don’t mind at all. In fact, it’s a great way for me to understand you. My first response is “Do you have a Pinterest board or boards of your wedding ideas?” I then ask them to add me. Now when they get inspired I am notified. This keeps me the loop.

What inspires me most?

Once we’ve connected via Pinterest, we get to have more meaningful conversations with couples. We get the chance to talk about what makes a certain images work – pose, attire, lighting, background, etc. And while we go through this I get pumped and fired up for the wedding. It gets my creative processes going. Then when wedding day arrives, I can speak to them in terms they already know – poses, attire, lighting, background, etc. I can’t imagine not having & using Pinterest.
