Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Jamie Weiss of Jamie Weiss Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

I love this image I captured during a group shoot in Chattanooga, TN. I really like the chemistry of the couple and the metallic background displaying the fact that we are in Chattanooga. This couple “modeled” for a group of about 15 photographers who were all shooting them at once, so at times it was interesting trying to get in and get the angle that you wanted without getting in someone else’s shot. I had also just purchased a new camera and was experiencing some difficulty getting the settings just the way I wanted and I left the shoot feeling like I didn’t get very good images. But after downloading them and taking a second look, there are several from this shoot that are my all time favorites and this is one of them

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Kari Douma of Kari Douma Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

Scott and Laurie were such a fun couple who had a fantastic wedding. They were married on top of Crystal Mountain at the Crystal Mountain Resort in Michigan. All the guests rode the ski lift up to the top of the mountain for a mountain high ceremony! This image shows the excitement of the day, and the emotion that Scott and Laurie had that day, sharing it with their friends and family. Here in this image they are greeting one of their friends as they were descending the mountain in the chair lift

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Kevin Hart Arps. In the photographer’s own words:

This photo was taken on a crisp day at Lough Talt in Southern Ireland. I had to climb down a rough/wet/slippery bank to take it but had my tripod for support . I am currently engaged in taking photos of the North West of Ireland leading to a book being published. Camera: Canon Eos 400d, lens Canon 10 – 22.

Today’s awesome photograph comes from Davina Fear. In the photographer’s own words:

We had decided that between the ceremony and the cocktail hour we would go to the top of the mountain and take some pictures. The parents were all from the 60s and absolutely loved the idea. We got some really wonderful images even though the sky was threatening rain. I love this image because they were completely unaware of the camera. She’s holding her dress high enough to see her garter. The sky is beautiful and so is the mountain. I just love the composition…it’s a favorite for me.

Today’s awesome photograph comes from Aaron J. Nelson of Evantide Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

The photo should be a standard where I shoot in northwest washington. The only problem is that is rains so much that if you use an umbrella you are considered a wimp or a tourist. So right before the wedding I ran to the store and purchased one large golf umbrella and one smaller classy umbrella with the great wooden hook.

Because I bought the umbrella’s and intended to use them, we ended up with a window of time to shoot when the rain had stopped (go figure). Anyhow, with the late day light the colors in the image really became muted and that’s my favorite part and what I think gives it the classic look. This was the first shot of the day for this couple and I told them I was done and heading home when I saw the preview in my LCD.

Editor’s note:  This photograph has a unique and timeless appeal that will last forever.  I truly LOVED seeing this submission, and thanks so much for sending it in Aaron.  C.

Today’s image comes from Sarah Antonino of Picture Infinity Studios.  In the photographer’s own words:

This was shot after the wedding before the limo was ready to pick up the bride. She wanted to do some fun formals and we had her running down the hall, veil in hand. There are about 12 captures but this one just looked perfect, like she was flying! Her veil was too impressive not to do something cool with it and we’re so glad we took the time!

Back in Black

Today’s photograph comes from Matt Antonino of Picture Infinity Studios. In the photographer’s own words:

“If Stefan had a larger bladder this image wouldn’t exist. You see, we were taking some cool formals but had the whole wedding party involved. We hadn’t gotten down to couples time yet and probably would have run out of time (we took SO MANY fun wedding party shots!) Anyways, Stefan had to use the newly married mens room so Heather walked over near the window. I saw this and thought – if she just puts her arms UP…

And the image was made. There are more images from this shoot at our blog – http://chat.pictureinfinity.com.

El Mariachi

Today’s photograph comes from Ramiro of Rosy’s Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

El Mariachi is traditional in Mexican weddings and celebrations. In this shot I was looking for certain perspective of balance, symmetry, and depth. This shot captures that vision. A detail important to the Mariachi, is that the elaborate decorations of the pants are always showing, in this shot that was also captured.

Bridal Flowers

Today’s photograph comes from Valerie Cavalheri of www.cavalherigroup.net. In the photographer’s own words:

Really like this photo of a pretty bride among the flowers. It’s always fun to get rid of the other colors and put the focus on the bouquet near a face. Despite the stresses of the day, she was always calm and collected. The perfect bride and the perfect model.

“Goin’ to the Chapel, and We’re…”

Going the the chapel and we’re gonna….

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Matt Roberts. In the photographer’s own words:

This photo was actually taken after both the wedding and reception. This old bridge was located just steps from the restaurant where the reception took place. It was extremely hot that day. I liked the look of the old beat-up sign, and the rusty old bridge juxtaposed with the bright and shiny newlyweds.

Year of the Piglet

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Donna Tam of Donna Tam Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

I was at a Chinese New Year celebration when I spotted this sweet baby. She was having such a great time playing with her mom! And just the way she looked made me think, “This little piggy…” Such round cheeks and a wild sprig of hair to top it all off! Watching her have fun was probably the most entertaining thing that whole evening.

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Anthony Dantuono. In the photographer’s own words:

I came upon these gentlemen while on a trip to Sorrento, Italy in 2005. The first photo I snapped was from street level, through a set of gates. After seeing the pic in my viewfinder, I decided to run up the steps for a closer shot. These guys were awesome and I only wish I had the audio clip that went with the photo. Bella, Italia!

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Martin Lukersmith from Click Media Digital Printers in Penrith, New South Wales. In the photographer’s own words:

My wife, daughter Sophie and I were travelling on a holiday in Ireland in January and came upon the area known as Glendiloch – with its old graveyard. I had recently modified a Nikon D70 for infra-red and snapped this as Sophie walked amoungst the old graves. I found Ireland to be a wonderful place to develope some new skills with infra-red and this photo is a good example from the hundreds that I took there.

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Jennifer Cavagna from Jennifer Images in Milton, Ontario, Canada. In the photographer’s own words:

Beautiful north facing window light and the bluest of eye, made this image one of a kind. This was the baby’s second photoshoot with me, but this time she was crawling. That meant following her around and seeing the world from her perspective. Spilled Cheerios, reaching for letter magnets and exploring the world all around, made capturing the perspective of a ten month old a whole lot of fun. Please enjoy this photo and if you would like to see more please visit my website at www.jenniferimages.ca or my blog at http://jenniferimages.blogspot.com

Today’s awesome photograph comes to us from Ed Stone from Ed Stone Photography. In the photographer’s own words:

Today you’ve been lucky enough to see one of those extra special magical moments in which mother nature has presented two cows madly in love. So I was very lucky to be able to capture this photo as the light was fading away and I had to wait about an hour to get the shot perfect but is was definitely worth it! For anyone who is curious, the picture was taken in Butleigh, Somerset in the UK. My wesite is http://www.dopeytree.com and for those of you keeping hip http://www.myspace.com/dopeytree
