I must fess up that I am a bit voyeuristic when it comes to wedding photos. I love to get lost in other people’s wedding photos and I can often be found checking out flickr and pro photog’s sites for wedding photos. This interest on my part is rather bizarre to me, because I myself did not have a big wedding shindig and neither did I want one. The mister and I chose to get married by a justice of the peace and have a BBQ type get together at my grandparent’s afterward. It was very low key. It was so low key that I was barefoot most of the day….although, I was 8 months pregnant and it was about 150 degrees that long ago August afternoon.
I digress…other people’s weddings. So, fast forward to today and I love to look at wedding photographs of strangers. I love the poignancy of those captured memories and the creativity I find in the little details of the weddings and the photographers who record them. One of the photographers that I follow is Laura Dye (Blog & Flickr) We sort of met on twitter, or was it facebook, and since she is headquartered in Salisbury and I’m in Delaware, we met in person at an Ignite event where Laura did a presentation sharing some of her photos…I’ve been checking out her blog and flickr ever since. Laura does individual and family portraits, but it’s the weddings that get me.
Laura is actually one of the contributors for the 1st issue of my new online mag called Joie, which is debuting next month.
Here are some of Laura’s wedding photos.
