Photographer

Most photographer are using digital now and most pictures are very saturated now a days. Very few use the old fashion 35mm, like Jose Villa FI and I would have hired him if we can afford him. Anyhow, I was just curious on other brides choices. Do you guys prefer the artsy look or the classic simple?

Of the two you posted, I prefer the first photog. I like more artistic compositions and "out-of-the-box" shots. We're limiting formal, posed portraits, because really, are those EVER the shots that everyone falls in love with? No, it's the spontaneous and more fun ones. For example...my BFF's favorite shot from her wedding is this:






It is SO them!



Here's another one that their photographer just captured while they were dancing...no "re-staging" or posing can convey this kind of "in-the-moment" emotion:





Our photographer uses films...she does, however, offer digital enhancements in post production, as her lab scans all of her negatives into digital files. The best of all world for me!



What's more, of all the photogs I liked, she was the ONLY one who was under $5K!

If you click on "Tool Box" she explains why she still shoots film.

Our photographer is a little more artsy, which I like. We'll have so many "classic" shots from our friends that it will be nice to have some that are jazzed up. But I'm sure with any photographer, artsy or not, they can work with you. Here's the link to our photog: www.joelflory.com.

I prefer more artistic photos. That's why we hired Gene Higa. I love his work. Of the ones you posted I think #1 is the best. They seem to have a nice balance between classic and artistic.

Lori- I would love to have a photog that shoots film...so expensive though. Happy to hear you found someone you like and affordable.

Moe- I know our photog would do a good job. FI and I love his work. I was just wondering how other brides/bride to be feel about different photog style, with the digital camera some photog tend to have/make their pictures very saturated.

Soon2b- I think one reason we like #1 too it's simple and the classic but not boring.

HAPPY FRIDAY ladies!!!

Digital photography makes more sense when it comes to the development process and it can be done without the over saturation. One or two pics like that are ok, but I'm with you, it's not how you want a lot of your pictures to turn out. Our friend who is a pro photographer is doing our wedding (for free!) but my FI who is also a photographer will edit the pictures and make books out of them through iPhoto. He also doesn't like over saturation, so our digital pictures will look like film.

I love journalistic style photographers--where they are capturing moments that aren't posed, and aren't directing the whole process, either. And I love artsy-ness --I shot (with video) a wedding where the photographer I worked with was telling the bride and groom and the whole bridal party what they could and couldn't do, where they should walk, how they were supposed to be. It was (I thought) so terribly intrusive to the day. I so appreciate those discreet type of photographers who know how to capture unposed moments (like that perfect shot that Lori Decter inserted). I'll share my favorite photographer--I love her style: www.tanjalippertphotography.com
