Wedding Photography - Barbie and Ken? WTF!
IErica Djeko Olsen, a DJ from NY/LA, showed me this hilarious blog post of a Barbie and Ken wedding. I'm not a wedding photography for a reason...the blog post by RocknRollBride.com got me laughing my ass. I recently shot a wedding only because the couple specifically wanted something different. The stereotypical wedding photography was not what the client wanted...I think rock-n-roll wedding bride's post does a great job in trying to tell photographers and couples getting married to move away from the typical cheese. It's time photographers step up their game in terms of artistry. I know that weddings are big business and create jobs for a lot of people armed with cameras. The reason for this post is to encourage photographers to be unique and not be typical. Put your unique spin on what's right for each individual/couple.
I recently did a shoot for a client who wa completly opposed to the typical and bad cheese crap that floods the market with bad wedding photography. I hope this inspires great photography...if I can inspire one wedding dude or chick to not do horrible wedding then I know I am doing something right. Feel free to contact me or post your honest opinion...
OH! I leave you with some fun stuff I did in Vegas for a couple last weekend who did want "cheese."
