Help! Non-hipster wedding photography needed

By Sideshowmatt123 - 14 June 2013 26

We’re looking for a wedding photographer. We looked at the responses to this post from 2012, and scanned the websites of the photographers referred to and many others. It seems there is a strong prevalence of a particular kind of wedding photography. It’s either contrived, or has gone right through contrived and come out the other side (hipsterland).

See for yourselves, Rioters!

She and I think we want a non-arthouse, beautifully executed record of the ceremony taking place and, afterwards, of who was there looking their best. There will be no:

  • jumping in the air
  • standing blankly amid Architecture
  • riding chairlifts
  • obscuring faces with bouquets
  • urban landscapes
  • bridal accoutrements perched in unlikely places
  • torsos without heads

Any recommendations?

What’s Your opinion?

I’m sure any professional photographer would be entirely happy to take whatever kind of boring photos you want them too, as long as you don’t go calling them hipsters to their face.

Finding a wedding photographer that suits the style of photos that you are after is possibly the biggest hurdle.
Secondly you need to find someone that you and your partner are comfortable working with. For almost everyone, their wedding is the first time they will be in front of the camera so it is important to be as relaxed as possible.

I’m not sure if her stuff qualifies as ‘hipster’ or not. Judge for yourself I guess. She’s a mum who does photography on the side and i believe her prices are very reasonable.

And a well respected photographer at that, highly recommended.

A very good (ex-Canberran) photographer is Jeremy Beasley. His approach is photojournalistic, meaning no cheesy posed shots – so if you want a “beautifully executed record of the ceremony taking place” you might want to check him out.

“Hipster” has lost all meaning for me these days. He’s not at all pretentious, if that’s what you mean :)

So do hipsters not like being called hipsters anymore? Maybe it’s too mainstream.

Eek. Antihipster is worse than hipster. Those are shockers!

Only on the Riot Act could tacky, bogan-esk wedding photography trends be referred to as ‘hipster’.

Do you refer to Facebook wedding albums & glamour photos as hipster, too?

http://www.luxandlens.com – a great couple who captured great moments of both my Mum and sister’s weddings. Stunning, personal and intimate photos of the couple and the guests sharing the day. And they are just a really nice funny couple.
