Phenomenal Photography- An Introduction

May 6, 2009 | editorial team

With the launch of our Southern California Plan Your Wedding section section just around the corner (June 1st!!!) we’re also working on a number of other improvements and fun features that we think will make Junebug that much better. (Can’t wait to show you!) To give you a little taste, we’ll start with one that’s near to our hearts. Our amazing Art Director, Kim Bamberg, will be posting a regular feature on What Junebug Loves, showcasing some of the most spectacular photography that comes across her desk from some of the worlds best wedding photographers. Shell be featuring her favorite portraits, group shots, emotional moments, and just plain jaw dropping photos from the amazing library were blessed to be building here at Junebug Weddings. Here dear readers, is your first installment…

The artists: Joy Marie Photography, Elizabeth Messina Photography, Roberto Valenzuela Photography, and Amelia Lyon Photography

The adoration: Lately, these stunning bridal portraits have truly inspired me and kept me coming back to see them again and again. I love the way each of these photographers were able to capture the brides’ personal style and beauty, while still maintaining their own unique photographic style. I also love the way each photographer used the simple background to his or her advantage, leaving the location a mystery and up to the imagination. Each portrait is so distinct and absolutely gorgeous!
