Cleveland, OH Wedding Photographer Dennis Crider

Hello there! Welcome to Dennis Crider Photography. I am a wedding documentary-styled photographer in Cleveland Ohio but open to destination weddings around the world. Weddings have been a tradition for centuries in every culture. Your photographer shouldn't be so traditional. I know each wedding is different because YOU are different. You want something tailored to show your personality and style. That's what I do. I document your story and your family/friends. Not the traditional style of pictures you receive from the "Guy with a camera selling his services for next to nothing". Q: What influences me to capture those tender yet fun moments? A: To make each wedding I do, better than the last one. Q: How many weddings do you shoot per year on average? 18 Q: What photography internships or apprenticeships have contributed to your training/education? A: Obsession with America's best and what makes them the best. Q: What other photography interests do you have besides shooting weddings? A: Shooting for 5 years, besides hanging out with my 2 kids and my wife, this is it. This is my passion. Q: What makes you stand out above the crowd of photographers: A: a chair to stand on. If no chair, I jump really high. I want to go beyond good and be original with style. It's a passion to capture the best non-fake, unscripted and organic moments of your day that showcases your wedding. Not to recreate the 100 other previous weddings. [Cleveland Wedding Photographer]

Monty Soungpradith is an Ohio based wedding photojournalist

I’m a photographer, dreamer, classically trained pianist, and natural born creative. I’m a recycler and do my best to live within my means. I’m a college graduate who paid way too much for a degree. Dated for 6 months, engaged for 6 more and been married for over 15 years to one of the most compassionate women you’ll ever meet. I’m a father of two incredibly inventive kids who can build you a home out of cardboard or at the very least a kick-ass Ironman suit. I get genuinely excited about all the possibilities that come from collaborating with my clients. I have a relaxed and easy demeanor and have often been described as an, “Island of calm in sea of chaos.” I love new technologies, slightly obsessed with spicy foods, and thrive on creativity. More importantly, my most treasured possession is my family. [Columbus Wedding Photographer]

New Hampshire wedding photographer, Sarah Martinez

Hi! I’m always ready for an adventure and I love running around in the wild with my couples, dresses that aren't always perfect, and giving couples the space to take in as many moments of their wedding as possible. My photography background takes me from starting out as a photojournalist for a newspaper in Ohio, to being the second photographer to an incredible wedding team in San Diego, all the way to starting my own photography business here in New Hampshire. I’ve driven all across the US many times, calling a bunch of those spots home and combined with my life experiences, my work is heavily influenced by the person that I’ve become out of it. In addition to the celebrations in life, it’s also the heartaches that helped me realize just how important capturing how a moment feels will impact your appreciation of the images delivered. Therefore, I work to get to know you two and use my years of experience to anticipate and embolden moments so I can capture all those genuine smiles, tears, and healthy doses of nervous anticipation. Professionally I’ve had wedding features published in print magazines like Seacoast Weddings, Southern New England Weddings – Destination Edition, and New Hampshire Bride along with a wide variety of blogs and online publications, I've been featured as the resident artist at a local art show, a finalist in a worldwide photography competition, chosen as the third-ranked photographer in my state, as well as being chosen as a top photographer in NH to watch in a nationwide report.

Pittsburgh wedding photographer Erica Dietz for all of Pennsylvania

I am a wedding photojournalist. This means that I specialize in candid (also called documentary style or simply unposed) photography. I enrolled in college as a young artist where I learned how to create and critique art, which would later become the foundation for my photography career. After graduating in 2008, I took an internship as a photojournalist at The Valley News Dispatch--now known as Trib Total Media--where I fell in love with visual storytelling and the year I shot my first wedding. I spent 8 years working for the newspapers—during the week I was shooting assignments full-time and shooting weddings on my weekends. In 2015, I was among 150 employees who were let go due to downsizing, which allowed me to focus 100% of my energy on weddings. I took what I loved most about photojournalism and carried it to my wedding photography. [Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer]

Michelle M. Peters, a WPJA wedding photographer from PA, was focusing on her creative side at a young age.

Michelle Peters began focusing on her multiple creativities at a young age, but did not get involved in the photography area until a pro photojournalist offered her a mentorship, after she finished her education at the Pennsylvania State University. She was guided into Wedding Photojournalism and loves to capture all the moments of your special day, while maintaining an unobtrusive view. Although she still likes to hide in her 'secret studio' and shoot macro, her joy is now shooting the joy of your wedding day! [State College Wedding Photographer]

Wedding photography detail of bride and bridesmaids Preparing for the ceremony outside in the wind with their bouquets.
With the snap of a shutter, a camera lens captures a single moment in time; one that can never occur again in the exact same way. At any given wedding, there are an infinite number of these moments that pass us by. Some hold in place longer than others; some come and go in the blink of an eye. It is through such fleeting details that some wedding photojournalists earn their keep. With a professional eye honed through years of visual training and practice, they constantly scan the wedding scene...Read more
Show Shutter Wedding Day Photography - Groom dancing at the wedding reception with some blur
Dragging the shutter is a basic photographic technique that is often put to highly creative use by the best wedding photojournalists. Whether depicting the bride mid-whir during a dance, or documenting a child bounding down the aisle at the church, dragging the shutter helps produce images that contain a sense of motion and bring an added dose of festivity to what, for some, already feels like a whirlwind day. When photographers “drag” the shutter by slowing down its speed, they...Read more

Wedding Photojournalism Beauty Photos of the bride crossing her eyes as she reacts to her dress being buttoned up from behind
The bride steps into her wedding gown. Her mother and a coterie of bridesmaids assist her with the final touches on her hair and makeup. They primp and preen at her gown, perhaps contributing something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Today, the vast majority of brides invite their photographer to document the “getting ready” period, and for good reason. Getting ready can be a monumental task for the bride and her entourage, and an event in itself. It...Read more
Wedding Photographer captures quite moment as the bridesmaid looks timidly out before entering the scene
Weddings can be chaotic, noisy affairs where emotions are displayed publicly, so one of your biggest challenges that day can be capturing that quiet, intimate side. Trust, anticipation, skilled observation, savvy lens selection and a host of other judgments make it possible to bag those poignant moments in images that recall the day for those in attendance, and reveal a story for those who were not. It is all part of the unique value proposition that our members bring to wedding photojournalism.Read more
Creative Portraits and wedding photography | Bride & groom portrait walking in front of colorful wall outside
Portraits are part of every wedding, of course, but some photos have the ability to sear themselves into the memory, providing an unforgettable image that rises above the common convention. Wedding photojournalists shooting portraits work within an expanded set of parameters, just like their counterparts in the news world: Some direction and setup is acceptable in order to fully capture subjects in the context of who they are and what they are feeling. Yet everyone approaches wedding portraits...Read more
