Creative Wedding Photos by Fearless Photographers
The 2012 wedding season is definitely in full swing and I know a lot of you are getting ready to have your couple photos taken, am I right? If you want bold, artistic photos that are ages away from the posed studio portraits of past decades, may I point you to the mind-blowing work of the Fearless Award winners? I met (and did a feature on) the Fearless Wedding Photographers and founder Huy Nguyen last year and I’m happy to see that they are flourishing!
To recap, Fearless Awards are (from the site) ”photographs that excel in redefining wedding photography or are just darned amazing!” The curators, acclaimed photographers themselves, are very picky: less than one out of ten images submitted are selected to be displayed in the photographers’ profiles as award winners.
Since the Round 9 Fearless Award winners have just been posted, I’ll quickly share with you 5 of my favorite artistic couple photos in no particular order. Let me know which one/s you like too!
Photo by Steven Rooney (UK). Steven has submitted to me before and the result is Belinda & Tom’s Classic-and-Quirky-Chic Meols Hall Wedding feature. When I saw this particular photo with the birds on his site while we were collaborating, I told him that he *had to* join the Fearless Photographers. I’m so glad he did and look at that, he won with the very photo that captured my heart!
Photo by Kai Fritze (Germany). Genius use of background graffitti!
Photo by Nathan Welton (USA). You’ve got to admire photographers willing to risk life and limb to take an amazing shot of the two of you!
Photo by Daniel Kudish (Quebec). This. It’s a work of art — I love it.
Photo by Citlalli Rico (Mexico). I though the use of negative space was excellent and the shot, elegant in its simplicity. Lovely Citla happens to be the record holder for the most Fearless Awards in 2011 so watch out for an upcoming feature on her right here.
See the rest of the round 9 winners on the Fearless Photographers’ site or on Facebook.
I’ll be doing a post on the Fearless Awards every round from now on. And because I didn’t get to feature them, I have chosen 5 more artistic couple photos from winners of rounds 7 and 8:
Photo by Tran Binh (France) – You know by now how much I love playful shots!
Photo by Shane O’neill (Ireland) – so dreamy!
Photo by Soon Hoy (Singapore) – Love the use of light & shade and the pops of color plus the mini cooper gives it a whimsical retro touch.
Photo by Todd Laffler (USA). So clever! If you liked this, watch out for a lot of creative sessions from Todd coming up real soon.
Photo by Dragan Zlatanovic (Slovenia) – Need I even explain why I think this shot is awesome?
* I made boards on Pinterest for Artistic Bride & Groom Wedding Photos and Creative E-session Portraits for your inspiration. I’ll keep adding to them so be sure to follow if you want to see more of this kind of wedding photography.
