There can be downfalls to not hiring a professional photographer to shoot your wedding and it is definitely one of the areas where I think you get what you pay for – this post from Rock ‘N Roll Bride is a perfect example of what can happen when you go down the ‘Uncle Bob’ route.
But Bride Liisa Luts, a professional photographer herself, decided to take her own wedding photos, a combination of arty shots, selfies and mirrors, documenting her day from the moment she got up until the moment her and her new husband went to bed and the results are stunning!
“We didn’t feel the need for a professional wedding photography with fancy photos from a third’s perspective, we wanted something more simple, sincere and straightforward, more like ‘us’. And taking photos with a small and handy mirrorless camera suited well with that concept.”
“The idea was to document the day as honestly as I could, so I just took some snaps on-the-go, no planning or staging was involved. It really didn’t take any attention away from the day and I’m happy I can relive it through this series.”
