***UPDATE*** – I think I might have already found the right couples for this project, so for the time being, let’s consider the deal done (in other words, I’m booked up…) Thanks to everyone who sent a message, and best of luck to all of you with your weddings! Oh, and comments are closed, too. Thanks to the pros who expressed their concern for the well-being of the industry. I’ll try not to ruin anyone’s day/life/wedding/etc. :)
I have several ideas kicking around in my head, and I’d like to let them out. These are ideas about wedding photography that have been germinating since back when I was shooting professionally. In 2011, I’d like to make them happen. I’m looking for a handful of couples getting married in 2011, who will let me create some art on their wedding day. Here’s the deal:
- I’ll shoot for free. I’m not aiming to make money, just to make some images that I can be proud of, and since I don’t know if the ideas will work out, I’m not comfortable charging money anyway. This is strictly experimental. So I’ll cover the cost of materials, travel, assistants, etc.
- You’ll get a digital copy of my final product, with the right to reproduce the images for personal use. I may or may not actually print anything, but you’ll certainly get a copy of the retouched final images (though there may only be a few).
- You’ll still need to hire a wedding photographer. I’m going to be treading down a new path with some of these concepts, and I can’t guarantee that anything good will result at all. I’m pretty confident I can make the photos I want, but I’m not 100% sure that they’ll be an adequate substitute for real, professional wedding photography. So you’ll need to have someone there to do the “real” wedding photography.
- California would be great, but I’ll travel for the right wedding. In order to make this work, I need the right couples at the right venues. If that’s in my neighborhood, great! But I’m more committed to making the best images possible, so if you’re really interested, and you live far away, contact me anyway.
If you’re interested, (see update above) drop me a line with some details about yourself and your wedding. We’ll talk a bit about what I have in mind, and if we connect, you just might end up with some amazing, unexpected mementos of your wedding.
