The word success has always bothered me. It was a goal, an elusive one, and no matter how much I tried, I always felt that I wasn’t anywhere close to it. What I considered ‘success’ or ‘successful’ had a lot to do with status and money. I was brought up to think this way, and […]

I remember being absolutely mesmerized when I saw Jen Huang’s photographs for the first time, and the fact that she almost exclusively shoots on film. Using a medium format camera, today, in a genre like wedding photography, is quite unheard of. Here is someone who uses film, not for its novelty aspect, but because she […]
Is it possible to have a unique style as a wedding cinematographer? Today, with so many people owning cameras and cellphones, thus making photography and videography a truly democratic platform, why is it that there are only a handful who have made a name for themselves? The answer is simple. Their work has something extra […]
Amongst the eight panelists who will be speaking at SILK INSPIRE 2017, only one photographer is a woman. This fact raised several comments criticizing the decision for not consciously creating a gender-equal panel.

This approach has given them access to a wonderful variety of moments and the ability to […]
“I want people to remember us,” says Brian Callaway. He and his wife Allison run the popular Callaway Gable wedding photographers Studio in Los Angeles, known for producing award-winning wedding photographs. It wasn’t just enough for Brian and Allison to create wonderful memories for their clients.
Andrea Corsi gushes about Tuscany. It’s the first thing he mentioned during our rather long, but engaging conversation about how he got around to wedding photography. “Have you ever been to Tuscany?” he asks me, and goes on to provide incredible detail of the region’s picturesque landscapes. Home to some of the most acclaimed and […]
Dr. Seuss had once said, “Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.” I was reminded of his words as soon as I chanced upon Sergey Ivanov’s fantastical wedding photography. His visuals have all the ingredients or rather qualities that encompass a […]

In fact, making photographs is the easy part… It is the one thing that comes naturally to you, the photographer. But it’s unfortunate that for most wedding photographers, being creative with the camera […]
