This is what real wedding photojournailsm looks like...it always helps to read the caption...

When they married in Rhode Island on September 12, 1953, it was national news. LIFE magazine sent photographer Lisa Larsen, then in her late 20s, to cover the highly publicized event. Her photos from the occasion offer not only a solid before-and-after record of the nuptials, but a surprisingly intimate chronicle of one of the most high-profile American weddings of the 20th century. Here, on the 60th anniversary of John and Jackie Kennedy’s wedding, LIFE.com presents a gallery of the very best of Lisa Larsen’s many

Yeah, but apparently you guys missed the rest of the story. She got really drunk the night before at the rehearsal dinner, went out and did some karoake with Marilyn Monroe, and was too ill to make it to the wedding. She gave her point-and-shoot Kodak film camera to her boyfriend who actually did all the photography that day. Part of the proof is that there's not a single "selfie" in the collection.

I was joking. The "lifted" blacks on the edges are most likely inconsistency issue. The black ARE generally crushed.


I bet you're bummed now that you're not vindicated.

Your reply alone is my vindication. It's always just a matter of time with you.

Bag the heads = classic and timeless. *that's* what this set was missing!

Haha... This forum needs a "hall of fame" for awesome threads. If so, this thread would definitely make the cut.

There is just a lot of subtle and very ironic humor in this thread... Might be just me... or maybe not.

I was recently told it's only funny if everyone's laughing... so apparently this thread is not humorous.

I often times look around here and envy most of the work I see. So many different angles, so many cool aspects, so many different styles, and so many different subjects.

But at the end of the day, framing a couple with their heads in the bottom 5% corner of a frame, with 45° of tilt, and having completely blank and open space everywhere else isn't something I see myself in 20 years going, "Man, I'm glad I took that picture." Additionally, even if the couple still loves the pictures, most of my clients (currently, I'm hoping to get away from this) will never buy an album, nor print any pictures. They want digital files, and do nothing with them. Not all of them, but a good majority of them. So the likelihood is that many people will lose their CD's or thumbdrives in 5-10 years, and not care anymore. Which is sad.

ANYWAY... the moral of this story is I shoot for me. I always look back at some images and think about what I could have done better or just plain differently. But if I shoot for me, and "me" is a somewhat classic style that strives to emulate the classic look of film, and offers framing and angles that are flattering, classic, but still fun and envelope-pushing, then I'm happy, and if my clients love me and my work, they too will be happy in 5 week, 5 months, 5 years, and 50 years.

I had assumed you were in a higher price bracket where most of your clients would want an album.

These photos are fantastic.

less and less people these days (including photographers) can appreciate this type of work.

I think we are fooling ourselves if we think that anyone could do that. Taking memorable photos takes years of experience to master the correct technique to get that "moment".

JFK and Jacqueline's wedding photos from LIFE magazine. I love how simple they are:

http://life.time.com/history/when-jfk-and-jackie-wed-life-photos-from-newport-september-1953/?iid=lb-gal-viewagn#1

It raises a question for me...will my images stand the test of time? Will your images stand the test of time? Do you care?



Chuck, love the link. This is truly the direction I'm trying to head toward with each new wedding. Simple, classic, timeless. Photos that age so well with gimmick and trends at a minimum.
