A photography studio in Iowa is now offering a drone photography option for their wedding shoots. Apparently, they can capture birds-eye shots in a way that no other camera (or photographer standing on a ladder) ever could. Inspired by the use of drones for real estate photography, studio owner Dale Stierman offers these futuristic wedding shoots anywhere in the country for about $400. Keep reading »
A couple in Saskatchewan, Canada, was in the middle of their wedding photo shoot when a funnel cloud began to form nearby. Their amazing photographer, Colleen Niska, knew it was the chance to get a once-in-a-lifetime shot that they couldn’t miss. Even though they were far enough away from the storm to feel safe (for the record, nobody in the area reported injuries from the tornado), a moment like that is when most of us would bolt in the other direction. Instead, they stuck it out and ended up with this kickass picture for their wedding album. So worth it. [TIME] [Image via Colleen Niska/Facebook]
It’s high time for American couples to take their cue from the Russians when it comes to their style of wedding photography. The new rules for capturing your big day include: don’t be afraid to rely heavily on Photoshop, draw inspiration from Greek mythology, and spread your legs whenever you feel like it. There’s more ridiculousness where these pair of newly betrothed centaurs come from. Think, brides peeing and couples riding giant swans.

Zach Braff pops up all kinds of places where he isn’t wanted, like Starz repeats of “Garden State” and the endless loop of “Scrubs” reruns on some channel my mom watches. But Zach deserves a venti caramel mocha latte for his latest surprise: he photobombed a newlywed couple’s schmoopy photoshoot in the middle of Times Square. Photographer Sascha Reinking was going through pictures he took during a shoot and noticed Zach in the background with a Starbucks drink and a big goofy grin. The photographer then tweeted at the actor, “Sir, I think you photobombed my newlywed couple the other day in New York. :) Well played …” and Zach retweeted it with the comment, “This is one of my best photobombs ever.” Indeed, Zach Braff, indeed.

Say you’re an offbeat couple who wants to make sure your engagement photos have a unique twist. You could wear funny hats, or you could document, in graphic detail, getting brutally murdered by Jason from “Friday the 13th.” This Toronto couple went with the latter. Their engagement photos begin innocently enough, with the couple frolicking in various nature settings, but wait, what does that sign say? Camp Crystal Lake? And is that a masked man with a machete grabbing the groom-to-be?! Uh-oh. See the entire set of photos over at Geekologie. Spoiler alert: it doesn’t end well, although there is a great shot of the engagement ring completely drenched in blood. I just really hope they took some less murder-y photos to send to grandma.
It may come across as an extreme case of nuptial nostalgia: A now-divorced man saying a photography studio should pay to recreate his wedding to make up for what he considers flawed pictures and video.
But after being branded a “groomzilla,” Todd Remis said Tuesday his now-notorious lawsuit is about holding a business to a pledge, not holding onto a broken marriage.
“It was their failure to deliver after a promise and a handshake” agreement to retouch the photos, Remis said in a statement provided to The Associated Press. “How could a business treat a customer this way?” Read more…
