Megan Resch mastered photojournalism at Western Kentucky University and now photographs weddings in KY.

I studied photojournalism at Western Kentucky University & that's where I developed the passion for storytelling. I never lost the childhood dream of being an artist & I think it gives me a unique edge to how I photograph people's lives. I don't want a simple snapshot. I chase emotion & frame it in a pleasing way. I have fallen in love with capturing your moments. [Louisville Wedding Photographer]

William Nunnally serves couples in and around Illinois and Chicago with his wedding and elopement photography

I have shot everything from weddings in the cornfields of rural Illinois to a World Series at Fenway Park, all in search of the perfect moment. I started my award-winning photojournalism career in Boston shooting for The Boston Herald, Red Sox and Harvard University and have been shooting weddings and events here in Chicago since 2011. I love shooting weddings because I love telling stories. Few events lend themselves such an obvious beginning, middle and end as weddings and fewer still feature wily grandmothers teaching The Wobble to their grandchildren or the quiet smile of a proud father. I capture great moments and tell unforgettable stories. Let me tell yours. [Chicago Wedding Photographer]

Renan Radici, of Rio Grande do Sul, is a wedding photographer for City - Porto Alegre, State - Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil
Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more

So your wedding is just around the corner and you’ve decided to elope , either because you want to do this on a budget , avoid a large wedding party, or simply to enjoy the day together with minimal distractions and as little stress as possible .

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Devin and Joy

Photo by William Nunnally

The photos we received were absolutely gorgeous. My wife and I could not have been happier with them, which is saying something because she hates all photos of herself. Also, we had some unexpected snow and freezing weather, but you made sure to make the outdoor shots as painless as possible. The snow ended up looking stunning in the photos too, so that was a silver lining. You're definitely a great photographer with a more artistic touch to your photos as well.

Sarah & Charles

Photo by William Nunnally

We met with other photographers about a year ago, but they were either too aggressive or too passive and all fairly cliche. Not so with you. It's true that when we met you, we appreciated your laid-back vibe and promise that you wouldn't ask Sarah to stare plaintively out a window. But we didn't know you were masterful until we saw our engagement photos. We love the candidness and joy, even silliness, and the art. The shot of us standing in the Logan Square train vestibule, our illuminated backs to the lens, slightly elevated, with our reflection catching the opposite Plexiglas wall, behind which a sea of blues and purples bathe us is still Charles' desktop background. Your reconnaissance and eye for perfect light combined with your ease in assembling children and adults, we're sure, proved the right balance to allow us to enjoy the celebration while documenting it for perpetuity. Thank you for visiting parks weeks beforehand and getting in the mix - whether in a hot glass-blowing studio or nearly crushed in the center of the Hora - the day of. You're a trooper.
