Photographer’s Spotlight | D Coleman Photography Featured Wedding

We’re excited to present once again the work of one of our esteemed featured photographers, David Coleman of  D Coleman Photography.

There are so many reasons that we love Coleman’s work.  Whether it’s the tangible connection he creates in his pictures to the couples and their weddings, or the vintage finishes that give his photos added élan, Coleman’s work is always delightful and compelling.

Today, Coleman shares with us the wedding of Zeb and Abby at Springhouse Gardens in Joplin, MO.

Take first the couple, Zeb and Abby. As Coleman characterizes them, “This couple was real. Real with their love for each other, real with their desire to share their day with me and my wife as if we were long-time friends.” Take note of the playful L-O-V-E shot that has Coleman’s artful texturing.

Next, notice the breathtaking Springhouse Gardens location and add silver-lining weather. Coleman relays that the day was stormy until just before the wedding was about to begin and then, “the clouds broke and blue skies lit up the tree side ceremony. The final touch for the photos was when the rainbow appeared over the tree line.”

And don’t forget the DIY elements, like the flower bulb planting and rustic flourishes throughout, which added sweetness and character to both the day as a whole as well as the pictures. Coleman remarks that in addition to the thoughtful and decorative details, the “lighting was as perfect as it could be and that made for some fun captures.”

 

Between the charm of the day, and the first-rate images by David Coleman, we’d say Zeb and Abby’s event definitely gives inspiration for how picturesque and romantic a garden wedding can be.

Photography Your WayWith the wishes of the couple always at the forefront of his mind, Abramson collects both the sprawling scope of the occasion as well as the smaller but all-important details in his photographs and presents them with his own creative vision.

Photography Your WayIndeed, whether large or small, Abramson takes the distinctive elements that make a wedding true to the bride and groom and illuminates them elegantly in his images.

Featured Photographer | Robert Castagna Photography

Robert Castagna focuses his lens on the personal story at the center of a wedding, the one unique to the couple. His images are direct but lyrical, allowing a glimpse inside the day as it was felt by the bride and groom.

Robert Castagna PhotographyCastagna demonstrates his prowess for storytelling with these photos from a wedding in Boston’s North End in 2011. They are perfect examples of catching the day moment by superlative moment, and proves that a vibrant background can enhance, rather than eclipse, a wedding.

Robert Castagna PhotographyAs he explains, “It was a true experience and that to me is key for a wedding day, and life for that matter!” Castagna entwines the setting (which was particularly meaningful to the couple) with the jubilant emotions of the wedding and the celebration as a whole to highlight the actions in the shot as well as the importance of the atmosphere.

Robert Castagna PhotographyWhat’s more, he is always on the hunt for images that transcend mere documentation of the day. Castagna states, “It's the moment of capture, the experience unfolding before my eyes that makes the picture.” Indeed, his honest snapshots articulate what makes each wedding so monumentally special.

Featured Photographer | Bering Photography

Glenn Bering of Bering Photography finds the unexpected happenstance within the flow of the wedding day to be the most rewarding to photograph, and he catches it with a technical vision and finesse learned from shooting with film before digital cameras became the norm.

Bering Photography

“I prefer candids and a photojournalistic style,” Bering states, and with this approach, he catches images with artistic flair and imagination. His distinctive style gives him a niche, as he explains, appealing to creative couples—like avant-garde film makers—involved with the arts.

But what does ‘photojournalistic’ mean when applied to Bering as a photographer? Well, his portfolio is well-balanced with heartfelt, emotive images that capture the romance of the day,

and an array of perfectly-timed snapshots that evoke the personalities of the subjects as well as the lighthearted spirit of the wedding.

Yet even with these examples, it only scratches the surface of what Bering’s style is really all about. His knowledge and experience with film cameras give his photographs an almost tactile quality—whether taken with film or shot digitally—and this, in turn, adds to the sincerity of the image.

Featured Photographer | Vincent David Johnson Photography

Vincent David Johnson’s style fuses high level execution with a playful perspective when documenting a wedding. The images he produces are at times serious, at other times humorous—but always meaningful as they chronicle, with honesty and heart, the moments of the bride and groom’s special day.

Johnson’s approach allows him to not only photograph the polished dazzle of the wedding day, but also the quirky flashes of personality specific to each twosome. And as he explains, “a lot of my couples’ favorite images are the ones that are ironic or humorous and not necessarily just the beautiful photos.”

Juxtaposing the traditional elements of the event with the practical details of the day, Johnson succeeds in mixing light-hearted sentiment with tangible, grounded, memories.

Vincent David Johnson PhotographyIndeed, his technical proficiency and extensive experience in other photography fields give him the skills and confidence to snap photos other photographers might not get. With respect and professionalism, Johnson uses “the access and openness a couple, their friends & family will give,” to him to record the bright, sparkling moments,
