When we made the move to Portland, Oregon, we were SO excited that would mean more face-to-face time with our brides. I knew Brianna’s wedding was going to be amazing when she requested letterpress on ivory with coral ink. Hello dream invites! Her fantastic sense of style paired with her incredible set of vendors (and the nicest family EVER) came together beautifully. Check out these stunning images by May Gunsul Photography!

I’ve been mulling over this “shoot” for 3 hours now, trying to decide if it’s something you all would find interesting. Featured on dozens of blogs including the website of Glamour Weddings, I’ve decide there is a lesson to be learned. For those of you that are haters, try to make it to the bottom!
I have a hunch you all will be split down the middle on this. Some will love it, others will hate it. Overlooking the obvious skill of photographer Beatrice de Guigne’s attention to detail and photography, I want to focus on something a little bit deeper- the cliche wedding photo expectation of the day. I’m not the first to raise the question, and you’ll see the photog’s comments on the potential hidden “messages” of the shoot here. But the photos beg the question – while it’s absolutely reasonable to request pictures of the details of your wedding day, have our wedding photo expectations become so cut-and-dry that even Ken & Barbie can pull it off?
Imagine for a moment that you hired a photographer whose SOLE purpose of the day was to capture the feelings you experienced. No shoes, no rings, no favors, but instead the tear on your dad’s cheek, the morning hug from your brother, a guest carefully stepping over your aisle runner… What would that collection look like? For those of you whose wedding has already come and gone, what fresh perspective would you have now?
As a detail designer, I have NO intention to minimize the importance of capturing the objects and details that made your wedding a beautiful event. But when you set off to search the world of wedding photographers, don’t overlook the immense talent of those who focus on the moments of the day, rather than the items that will fade away. I know some incredible photographers who are just that, and I will share them soon. But allow me to remind you- the photo theory behind your photographer’s work is just as important as their rate, reputation, and website gallery.
What do you guys think of this shoot? Waste of time? Utter genius that makes you re-live your childhood? Please share in the comments below!
