Weddings

06 July 10

In the last year Andrew and I shot a few weddings, had the best time and got pretty excited about doing more. I'm dying to do an outdoors-y wedding abroad at some point... I don't know why weddings get a bad rep in the ~photography community~, they're so much fun! Maybe some people are doing it wrong.

Anyway, we're working on setting up a special site for our joint endeavours, but until that's done I've uploaded a small selection of my photos on my portfolio site. Let me know what you think! And of course, if you're getting married and want to see more or hire us, you can email me!

For those who asked, Krissi's dress is by Morgane Le Fay.

These photos are beautiful. I really love them : ) Thanks for sharing them with us!

Dawn replied over 9 years ago.

These are great! I love how you were able to capture such natural, happy moments, as opposed to weirdly stiff overly posed shots. Well done!

Tanie replied over 9 years ago.

That was my primary objective, so yay! thank you x

Do you know where the sheer wedding dress is from? It’s so pretty!

Nina replied over 9 years ago.

I’m right there with you! I adore shooting weddings, and although there CAN be nightmarish situations (like outdoor weddings that don’t take into account how awful spotty shadows look on everything/one!) I don’t understand what all the fuss is about. It’s hard work, for sure, but so fun and rewarding. I think the people who give it a bad rap are cold hearted snakes that’re in it just for the money!

Also, these are absolutely gorgeous. Of COURSE!

Oh wedding photography, I guess it’s often done in a very dull and snapshot-way. This is lovely though!
I like the second couple, they seem funky.

Sofia replied over 9 years ago.

Definitely! I think if the photographer isn’t into it, it really shows.
thank you! x

kris atomic replied over 9 years ago.

Ive been watching Mad Men all day and this is right up my alley today. SO pretty. I think when I get married I really want it to be retro too.

i hate how wedding photography gets a bad rep too. i fully agree that the people who bad-mouth it have only ever seen bad wedding photography and/or aren’t doing it right. i hate that people look down on it too- my friends who did photography at uni who now shoot weddings work just as hard if not harder than my friends who shoot commercial work.

yay weddings!

Kate replied over 9 years ago.

That’s exactly it! People say wedding photography like it’s something to be ashamed of, but I don’t see it that way at all! xx

kris atomic replied over 9 years ago.

I have been absolutely obsessed with wedding photography lately and it’s so exciting to see you’re in the industry! Your photos are GORGEOUS – I can’t wait to see more! :)

thank you! x

kris atomic replied over 9 years ago.

Gorgeous photos! I especially love the second bride’s dress; I dream of something simple and classy like that.

I think maybe the reason why weddings get a bad rap is because so many people think they can just grab a camera and be a pro wedding photographer. A lot of these people don’t have an eye for composition or capturing the moment, but you seem to have a great grasp on both.

Melanie replied over 9 years ago.

thank you!
I also think a lot of traditional pro wedding photographers wish they were shooting something else and it shows!

just the kind of photos I would love to be taken in our wedding! maybe in couple of years you´ll be invited to Finland. ;)

viivi replied over 9 years ago.

kris atomic replied over 9 years ago.

Lovely lovely pics! Love the second couple’s style so much. her dress and hair thingy!!!

ilaria replied over 9 years ago.

Totally, totally wonderful pictures! I wish I’d get married so I could hire you gg ;D

Alexa replied over 9 years ago.

I love them!!Ill immediately jump to your portfolio to see more!!

almalu replied over 9 years ago.

I want to get married now just so I can hire you as my wedding photographer.

Cecilie Askov replied over 9 years ago.

Both brides look stunning… and I feel like I recognise all of them? With the second groom I think that’s just because he looks like Andres Iniesta, but with the others I can’t put my finger on it… gorgeous, gorgeous photos though.

The first bride’s dress is exactly what I’ve always dreamed of wearing – is it vintage do you know?

Jenn replied over 9 years ago.

It was indeed Manchester, maybe you really do know them!
The first dress was vintage, if I remember correctly it was full length originally. xx

kris atomic replied over 9 years ago.

I’ve just realised, that’s Manchester isn’t it? Maybe there’s actually a reason I recognise them. It’s bugging me.

Jenn replied over 9 years ago.

Ha Kris! Did you know I went to school with Krissi?! We used to sit in the locker room when we were 11 and read Melody Maker, and of course, the NME!

Steph replied over 9 years ago.

I didn’t know that! Haha that’s so cute. God the internet is the smallest world, it freaks me out! xx

kris atomic replied over 9 years ago.

kristen replied over 9 years ago.

If you’re serious, we’re actually open to travelling anywhere in the world! x

kris atomic replied over 9 years ago.

kristen replied over 9 years ago.

These are positively stunning! If I were a) getting married, and b) living in the UK you would be hired in an instant!

Krissy replied over 9 years ago.

Maybe one day ;)
thank you! x

kris atomic replied over 9 years ago.

These photos are so lovely! My favorite dress is the chiffon-y one worn with the black and white pumps — gorgeous! I also wore a simple yet elegant dress — it was long so I just got it made into a tunic to wear with skinny jeans. So fun after ten years to wear it again!

Sweet Ronit replied over 9 years ago.

Oh my. These are lovely! I seriously wish I had you snapping pics at my wedding. You are infinitely talented, dear. =)

Amazing photos!!!!

i am so IN LOVE with their dresses AND your photography.

sal replied over 9 years ago.

I think my usual problem with wedding photography is that (especially in the UK for some reason) so much of it seems incredibly forced. Look at a lot of “wedding photographers” portfolios and you’ll see the same posed shots of the wedding party trying to look spontaneous and fun over and over again and it just doesn’t work, they’re unnatural and aimed at a photographer. What’s beautiful about these is that they seem sliiightly candid, as if you were a guest with a very good eye for composition. :P I love that 2nd dress, the photos of them at the altar and then the one where they’re laughing and the bride has her eyes closed are particularly gorgeous.

Ali replied over 9 years ago.

that is how weddings shouls bw: happy, radiant, simple, with attention to what one trully likes, fresh and young at heart. bravo.i rejoice for these people by looking at the wonderful photos.

Irene replied over 9 years ago.

Seeing your photos makes me want to jump in a white dress right now! Love your photos! And I honestly have to say that I can’t stand wedding photography most of the time. Always the same cheesy motives, dough.

I am the mother of the bride and all the wedding photographs are wonderful. Kristina and Andrew did a fantastic job on the day and I highly recommend them for your wedding. They really captured the moment of love and fun on my daughter’s special day.

fantastic photos.

Hey Kris,

Just seen your wedding work. It’s beautiful! I started shooti ng weddings last year and I love it. I’m pretty picky aobut the clients I choose though as I think it helps a lot when you get along with them really well and it makes it a lot more fun.

It’s deffo really hard work though – 12 hours shooting without proper breaks then a huge mass of editing but its so rewarding when the brides are thrilled with pics.

I’m so fed up of looking at local photogs work that is so contrived and every wedding has the same generic shots and poses. I love candid style shots like yours.

All the best with the weddings :)

Easily the most beautiful wedding photos I’ve ever seen – you’ve captured the moments perfectly! You’d be one of my dream photographers to have at my (dream) wedding! x

Sophie replied over 9 years ago.

Soooo beautiful! Who made the second dress?

Marina replied over 9 years ago.

Yay to great wedding photography! I have only recently came across your wedding photography work (though I have been a fan of your illustrations for a while now) so it is great to see such thrilling results in a different area of creativity.

Yup, wedding photography is a tough kind of work but I have just shot a big fashion campaign, with 30 people crew and after I finished I realised how great shooting weddings actually is, how free and creative one can be as a photographer! So congratulations and good luck with this side of the visual business!
