Anything by Clayton Austin (http://claytonaustinlovestories.com/blog/). His photos are so beautiful and so creative.

I also love photos where there’s something blurry in the foreground that highlights/frames the faces behind it. Like these (I know they’re engagement photos, but you could do the same techniques with wedding photos):

I know I just posted this in another thread… and it isn’t even me but I just love love the idea!


Especially if (like me and my FI) you aren’t going to see eachother until you walk down the aisle.

Here’s my favorite artsy pic from our wedding. Yes, it’s the veil over the husband picture, but I love it. I actually won a wedding photo contest with this picture for the jewelry store where I purchased my earrings from.

@MaybeeBecca:  What you are referring to a tilt shift effect.  You need a certain type of lens to properly take this type of image called a tilt shift lens and it’s very expensive and a pain in the neck to use because it’s manual focus only.  Most photographers try to mimick this look and add the lens blur in photoshop like the one you mentioned, but once you see the real thing it kind of looks bad honestly.  Bobby Earle is one of the few that has mastered the tilt shift lens, check out his work.

My photographer pulled a couch into the middle of the road, I thought it made for some unique bridal party and family picks.

We got married in a really cute town with funky buildings, our photographer really took advantage of that.

@USER876: I love tilt-shift photos, too, (and yes, I know that it requires a special, expensive lens and the mimicked ones just aren’t the same). Clayton Austin (whose blog I posted) uses it fairly often, which is one of the things I love about his work. I was referring to something different, though. Did you look at the last two links I posted? It’s where the photographer manually focuses on the couple, while leaving an object (like a tree branch) in the foreground blurry.
