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?

A real trained and experienced photographer can do whatever style you would like.

If they are not trained, which is more important than the style, they will be very likely to use the wrong lens, i.e. a wide angle and not a portrait lens and you will not like the way you look but will not know why.

Everyone says that are photographer these days but the reality is they are not and they don’t know what they don’t know.

I’m happy to walk you through this if you like, don’t fall for the pretty website photos.

It might be too late, but could recommend you looking at Mel Hill from – really classic images which should stand the test of time?

putting my hat into the ring – I’m not a wedding photographer..I’m just a normal photographer 🙂

While I’m not a big fan of your self promotion, I will say you take some absolutely fantastic photos. Wow!

Love the skywhale photos!

Hardly self promotion “just a normal photographer”.
Lighten up, if he takes good photographs, your evidence, then why can’t he tell people about it. Just offering to help out.

I’m getting married in January and I’m using Emma Hampton photography. She is fantastic and relatively new to starting her own photography business so her prices aren’t high AT ALL.
Have a look at her facebook page
