photographic inspiration

It’s a bit of a secret that I really like to look at wedding photography.  {Places like here or here or here, etc.} It’s a bit of a secret because I’m a bit of a fuddy-duddy when it comes to traditional weddings.  Sad, I know.  But the creativity and access available for couples to express their personality and love today is amazing.  I love seeing how people stage their pre-wedding/engagement shoot, much less the bid day.  I guess though, I like a thoughtfully crafted setting no matter the occasion.  You throw in a great photographer and magic happens!

Oooh to be the talented Jose Villa.  His photos are beyond lovely.  He seems to be able to capture the essence of the moment…and the styling… beautiful.  It’s interesting though when I flipped through his portfolio that some of the shoots seem more authentic for some couples than others.  Or rather, I believed that some of these folks really are  as cool as the location, setting etc., and for others it seemed to me that they were playing pretend for that moment.  Make sense?  Probably not.  Regardless, Jose is an outstanding photographer and I will continue to admire his pictures.

And uh, can I be friends with that couple in New Orleans?!  Because I’m totally buyin’ what they are sellin’!

  1. Um, wow.

    I’m actually attending a super-fancy wedding in a mere three weeks. I’m sad I won’t be taking any photos because I’m one of the bridesmaids. 🙂
