Hi All...

I'm not a wedding photographer, but thought everyone might enjoy seeing this collection. There's a lot of very good work, but I've seen equal or better work right here on FM.

Thanks
Tom

Of course you have, because some of those photographers are FM members that have posted.

You have also seen some of those same exact shots with different couples and different backgrounds thousands of times.

Some are cool and some make me want to push a hipster down a flight of stairs.

Not to take anything away from anyone BUT...

All those shots look like they were taken by the same person.

Glad to hear y'all say this. There are 10,000 IG accounts that all look identical. Everything about them is the same. Down to the caption.

I was actually surprised when I noticed by the end of the slideshow that they were taken by different photographers as I really thought they were taken by the same photographer. I thought it's just a post about 1 photographer's work, hence why some pictures are much better than others. I agree, they all look the same for some strange reason. Same poses and vsco editing presets.

I have a feeling junebug received many different images,but their photographer-judges just chose the ones that fit their own style. I've seen the same judging at WPPI back in the day as well as SMP, which is known for posting the same-look images.

A bit sad when you think about it, when a good image is discounted because it's not edited to the "trendy" look via a specific plugin.
What's more sad, 100s of photographers who will look at this list will see this as the way to edit image in order to win awards( also seen that at WPPI when photographers were editing specifically for WPPI awards). Maybe VSCO was sponsoring this competition, which would make total sense as they will be getting a lot of new purchases in the coming weeks.


There are a bunch of very good images there though, congrats to those who won.

That's not VSCO. It's typical PS taught in West Coast/NW workshops. I'll leave it at that.

I like them too.

Just mentioned how they were all very similar.

If you told me most of these were Gabe McClintock's work, I wouldn't have doubted it.

I remember when Gabe started posting stuff like this on these boards (just after he ditched the textures... in fact, it was probably circa 2012!). He called them connection sessions or something like that. Couples in the middle of the woods, low contrast, earthy tones with the couple embracing with eyes closed, hair blowing in the wind, etc. Before that, most people were shooting in urbanised areas.

My local market is flooded with this style of photography too.
