Top Pics of the Month for July 2021

What consistently makes wedding and couple photography special is how each image is a piece of a larger story. As the viewer, we’re offered a small glimpse into the real life of another person. We love how seemingly simple yet powerful these snapshots of love stories are. For our Top Pics of the Month for July 2021, there’s no shortage of storytelling within each photo. 

As you look through these photos, you’ll also notice the abundance of creative and unique artistry from the photographers behind these photos. Take a look at our top pics of the month below and peek into the personal stories of couples from around the world.

This photo was taken with a Sony a7 iii and a Sony lens 35 mm. The sky was so strange that day. It was similar to a huge soft box while the bride and groom were strolling on a small wall. I leaned over and as I framed them, I noticed the sky was a perfect background to tell something about them. Although there was such a majestic sky, their energy made them the main characters of that photo.

Kecia and Riley met me at dawn at a spot in Joshua Tree that overlooks the Coachella Valley. We documented their ceremony as the sun rose. The Valley view that crowds normally come for is in the opposite direction, but the sun peaking over the hills behind us caught my attention instead. So I asked them to go for a walk together down the road for a little alone time to soak in the vows they just exchanged. I scrambled to the highest point I could for a bird’s eye view (drones are prohibited in US National Parks), threw on my tightest lens (85mm), and watched this magic unfold!

We used our Canon 5D Mk III body alongside our Canon 35mm f1.4 lens and we edited this with our custom preset. It was a dramatic blustery day down at Pfeiffer Beach so we just asked the couple to grab hold of each other and run alongside the shoreline.

To get this shot, I put the bride and groom in front of each other, a projector behind them, and then used an Atmosphere Aerosol haze spray. The image was shot on a Nikon D750 with a Sigma 35mm f/1.4 lens.
