When I first began doing wedding photography I found inspiration in the work of other wedding photographers. I looks for what catches my eye. During a typical wedding I will take about 500-1000 photos. Out of all of those photos there will be just a handful of photos that will be the favorites of the bride and groom. So when I’m shooting close ups or special details I try to capture images that will be memorable for the bride and groom for many years to come. I still find inspiration from other photographers for ideas. I read wedding books, look on Pinterest or wedding websites. This helps me to get new ideas of how I want to shoot a wedding. My own work also inspires me. Especially when a bride tells me how much she loves my work!
