Famous People's Wedding Photography

As a California Wedding Photographer, I spend a lot of time reading about and looking at wedding photography resources.  You have to keep up with new trends, track current trends and I, personally, learn a lot from looking at and meditating on other photographer's wedding galleries.  Inspiration and ideas for my own work.

Doing random Google searches wedding photography searches today on Google and found this link story about 'Fergie, Josh Duhamel Release New Intimate Wedding Photos' which, apparently, the couple sold to Elle and US magazine.  I would not normally post anything about this particular celebrity status-quo, but Fergie and Josh took a new direction and, just perhaps, have triggered another trend in capturing the wedding day.  Captured the day after the wedding on-location in the honeymoon suite, Josh and Fergie held various intimate poses (and held each other) while the photographer worked to capture the special emotion (lust?) of the moment.  Interesting concept, and not that different than Trash The Dress, in terms of schedule (after the wedding,) cost (one additional photoshoot) and style (very personal and spontanious.)

Like the current 'Trash The Dress' fad, these new Intimate wedding day photographs have made there appearance in big-name print journals like Elle and US, so it is only a matter of time before someone has a blog and e-zine about it.  Or may not, a lot of people thought Trash The Dress would come and go too, but it is clearly here to stay (especially out west and for destination weddings, I think that has to do with beaches being a great scene for it.)

Destination Weddings at a Ski Resort

As a Northern California Wedding Photographer servicing Sacramento and San Francisco I am always interested in new trends in wedding planning.

A recent increase in small destination weddings has made Destination Weddings at a Ski Resort increasingly popular.

California Wedding Photography on a Budget, 2009

As a San Francisco and Bay Area Wedding Photographer, I am always looking for good pages about weddings, wedding planning and the newest in wedding issues -- recession proof budgeting!

Today on TODAYOnline they posted a great story about Tying the Knot on a Tight Budget, worth reading. The stand-by lackluster ideas like less guests, commercial gowns and do-it-yourself-photography are there, but they have a few creative concepts to add as well.

Another resurgent concept is the all-outdoor wedding as a way to cut costs. My Sacramento California Wedding Photography studio is receiving increased numbers of requests for photography at all-outdoor weddings. Personally, I love them and I think that the people over at TheSpectrum do too, after reading this story about SkyHighLove, Southern Utah and Outdoor nuptuails.
