so i found heather at the seattle wedding show promoting her company "One Love Photo". Instantly fell in love, wanted her, had to have her, but she’s not available on my wedding day. AHHHHHHH. Does anyone know of a photographer who is similar in shooting styles and methods. She uses medium film, a toy camera, homemade lenses and digital camera. A bunch of stuff- she has a vintage look and feel to it all. check out her website- you’ll love her!

Same thing happened to me with One Love. I fell in love with her work and Heather. She’s so kind and her work is incredible. She also gets published a lot so she’s definitely in demand. She wasn’t avail for my date either but she gave me some recommendations:

There’s some other phenomenal Seattle photographers (I live in LA but I looked at photographers basically everywhere) – have you looked at WPJA?

wow, she is great. I don’t have suggestions, but have you checked http://junebugweddings.com/ ? That’s a Seattle Wedding site that I came across when looking at dresses. I remember that they have some featured photographers that were pretty great.

OK, I just spent a few minutes running through the WPJA for Washington based photographers. There are a lot of amazing photographers here and I could showcase half a dozen, but based on what you are looking for, I don’t think many of them fit.
Your taste is very similar to mine. I wanted a somewhat vintage look. I was drawn to blown out images and film. There’s something so tactile and real about them!
In Seattle, I found Jenny Jimenez. She doesn’t primarily do wedding. She does a lot of nightlife shoots and photographs for Seattle Weekly. I think her images are fabulous! I don’t know if she’s too edgy for you, but I will say that if I was getting married here in Seattle, she would have been at the top of my list.
I seem to remember a fabulous photographer based out of Eastern Washington, but I couldn’t find him today.
Also, many photographers travel, so consider looking outside the Seattle area. Photographers that seem to fit what you are looking for are our own illustrious Amelia Lyon Photography (from Weddingbee pro) and my own photographer Annie X. Her blog featuring her most recent work appears to be down right now… but here is her portfolio. I would encourage checking out her blog (when it is back up) for her most recent work.
Let me know if I captured the style you are looking for correctly.

There’s certainly no underestimating a fabulous photographer- but many photography styles can be duplicated through Photoshop Actions. Totally Rad Actions (http://www.gettotallyrad.com/) and http://ittybittyactions.com/ both have great ones that can help achieve that vintage look. That said I hope you find someone that has that look built in for you, but if not- actions are a good alternative =)

You can also check out Chris Watkins, [email protected] – http://www.chriswatkins.com. He was at the Seattle Wedding Show as well. We loved his photos, and they’re creative like Heathers…His photos are framed and colored beautifully. Chris is also a very energetic and nice guy.
Another photographer that you can check out is His and Her Photography, http://www.hisandherphotography. They are based out of Portland, and they seem to have that vintage (and modern) style that you’re looking for. They are also nice people to work with.

I haven’t worked with her personally, but she’s a friend of a friend and I enjoy following her flickr photos. I think her style is similar to what you’re looking for.
