Aubrey Joy Photography

Today I’m excited to share the work of Aubrey Joy Photography. Aubrey is based in the Northwest, but photographs lots of Southern California weddings – and weddings all over the world actually (like this gorgeous Italian Wedding!) I love the fun + whimsical style she captures her couples on their big day. Check out some of her gorgeous photos she is sharing + some insights into her photography approach!

What is your favorite moment at a wedding?
My favorite moment at the wedding is right after the ceremony is over. The look on the bride and grooms face is so full of joy, and emotion. I think that until that point everything is going so fast for them. Its when they can finally look at each other, look around them…and really take it all in.

How would you describe your photo style?
I try to take photos that will reflect my style and the couple I am photographing. Hopefully my clients chose me because we have things in common. Carefree, artsy, romantic photos are what I really strive to create. During your wedding you will most likely hear me say things like “cuddle up” and “love each other” as opposed to “look at the camera” or “1-2-3, cheese.” I want to document your love and make it fun for you. I have so many clients tell me that the photo shoot was one the funest parts of the wedding day, this is a HUGE compliment to me. I like to use lots of soft light and faded color schemes when I’m shooting and editing. I think painting and photography are similar to me. I want to create photos for my clients that they will love and want to put up on their wall.

What new trend are you loving?
Color. I love vintage, but I feel that photography went so vintage for a while that too much color was taken out. Color is coming back and I love it.

Your favorite current photo?
I just cherish this photo [below]. It’s so romantic to me… with her long veil, the two of them snuggled up in the woods. Her face says it all “he’s all mine.” I love it.
