This black and white fashion driven wedding portrait is by far one of our most precious and loved wedding photographs. It received an award of excellence in Wedding Photojournalism category of the WPPI competition (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International).
From its conception, this iconic Phototerra photograph has traveled far and wide. Printed in the Elegant Wedding, Wedluxe, Grace Ormonde wedding fashion magazines and blogged by Junebug, Wedding Style Magazine and Event Source among the few. Today you will find this image on the Wedding Wire Canada, The Knot Canada, the Wedding Chicks, and many other local and international industry websites representing us in the most authentic way.
I guess what we are trying to say here is that everyone LOVES this photograph! Here is why:
- It’s the Couple – The bride and groom are fashionable, personable and a lot of fun to work with. They went along with all of our ideas (some crazier than others). They allowed our photographers to express themselves because of the mutual trust and well-communicated vision. You can see how calm and reserved they are on the photo.
- It’s Authentic – Shot on a real wedding day and in real crunch time. As noted by WPPI, this is wedding photojournalism at its best! We didn’t produce the wind or had anything to do with the sunny contrasts that are so helpful in artistic expression. We combined all of the available elements and made it work.
- It’s Creative – There are various photography techniques at work here, experiments with flash and angles, and of course a dedicated team effort.
- It’s the Veil – The most common question we always hear is where did the bride get this floral pattern veil? At Kleinfeld Bridal NYC. The New York location might still have this veil. One of our recent brides went looking and didn’t see this veil anywhere in Canada. So she asked her mom and aunt to make her one. Take a look at this photo!
