Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on February 19, 2016

All too often wedding blogs and magazines (Blush included) opt for editorial-style photos to showcase a real wedding—picture zoomed-in shots of decorative details and serious-faced couples posing like fashion models. As gorgeous as those images are, they don’t reflect the emotional intensity that make your wedding day the best day of your life. We’ve put together a collection of 9 candid wedding moments that captured real tears, laughter, and love.

In The WoodsStylized Shoot: Lucier Photography & Team

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on May 27, 2014

Since Danielle with Lucier Photography submitted Lindsey & Kris’s Fairytale Wedding she left us wanting more. This stylized shoot came in at a perfect time. When asked what inspired Danielle and her team to create this series of images she responded, “The idea was to capture bridal portraits more naturally. I think a lot of brides are apprehensive to get individual portraits done because they feel like the camera is too intrusive. I wanted to show a series capturing more natural movements. You don’t always have to look straight at the camera to get a beautiful portrait.” It made sense for this shoot to take place in a nature environment where the model would feel free.  Enjoy!
