Today’s beautiful bride, photographed by the sweet Nicole Berrett, fully encapsulates the true Southern belle with a traditional bridal session, heart stopping ball gown by BHLDN, and whimsical blooms by Stems of Dallas. One of our favorite venues (and one of our top 20!), Texas’ The White Sparrow, is the perfect backdrop for a bridal session with the lush surrounding grounds and the varying interior textures and spaces. We love the romantic aspect of this bridal inspiration with the soft colors…

From film photographer Nicole Berrett: “Southern romance meets industrial elegance in this bridal inspired shoot– the two combined share an inexhaustible source of influence and inspiration.

Phoenix photographer Nicole Berrett and the floral designers of Stems of Dallas set out to create a look to illustrate rich southern heritage– The strong presence of a wooden farmhouse chairs echoes the sweet, southern charm in the open corridor of The White Sparrow Barn. While, the tufted, velvet sofa used in the bridal suite is a place that reminds us of stories shared by those we hold dear.

As a team, we wished to capitalize on the height and depths of the barn’s rich structure and its surroundings. A textured, neutral palette was chosen for the bride and her bouquet as a contrast to the deeper earth tones found in the smaller, yet dreamy elements of The White Sparrow Barn.”

You know the differences between restaurants in your area after living there for a couple of years. Someone might ask about a good mexican place for dinner, and your answer would reveal what matters to you. For me it’s a mixture of the type of food they serve, the quality of the food, and the dining experience. I know a few restaurants where the food is amazing but the customer service is non-existent or pretty poor, and that alone keeps me from going there. Some people have very specific food preferences and that alone drives their decision where to dine out. I don’t love places that feel snobby or too cool, so the experience matters a lot to me. This is so much like looking for a wedding photographer. All wedding photographers have a particular style, whether they know it or not, and it’s helpful to know what you’re looking for in order to make your decision. And, just like a restaurant, wedding photographer’s style refers not only to the final images but the entire experience the business provides.

There are three major components in understanding wedding photography styles: the specific shooting style, the editing style, and the photographer’s style in relating with the clients. The shooting style refers to the type of images that are made and how they are made. There are whole books written on this, but to give you a brief idea think about the angles a photograph can be taken, the use of light and shadows in a shot, how blurry or in focus the background is, whether the image was shot on film or with a digital camera. Are the images taken close up or farther away; do you feel a personal connection to the image or as if you’re looking on from a distance? Granted a photographer’s portfolio is full of so many of these different elements, but in general you will see a specific style stand out through their images. Some photographers are known for their beautiful panoramic shots of couples in a field with a gorgeous sunset, while others for their ability to capture real emotions in their images. Photographs can be dramatic in the way the light is captured, with interesting shadows across someone’s face or dark backgrounds, or some photographers specialize in more light and airy photos.

Editing is another major factor that makes up a photographer’s style. Editing includes how light or dark the photo is, how bright or faded the colors are, how much contrast is in the image, etc. If I were to go through 5 photography websites I would see images with neon or almost electric colors (think grass that is really bright and blue eyes that almost don’t look real!), some that have an almost pinkish tint to them (often in the vintage editing camp), and others that look like they may not have been edited at all. Some photographers love black and white images and include them in their portfolio.


The last component of a photographer’s style might seem more difficult to figure out but I think it’s definitely possible. A photographer’s relationship style can usually be figured out based on their “about” section, the reviews provided on their site, and any writing done on their blog. Are they very personable in their description? That would indicate photographers who like to get to know their clients. Do they keep their blog post short and sweet, without a lot of descriptions? These photographer sees their job as the art of documenting the day and letting the images speak for themselves. Why does this matter? Just like the restaurant I don’t like to go to because the people are a little too cold for me, the photographer’s relationship style is going to matter big time on your wedding day. If you feel uncomfortable in front of the camera and your photographer is all business and not super personable, you might feel even more awkward in front of the lens and your pictures will show it. On the flip side, if you are choosing your photographer for their incredible candid or serious shots, a more formal relationship style with them would be fitting. I like to point out that it’s good to think about this considering you will be spending one of the biggest days of your life with your photographer right next to you for most of the day.


So how do you start the process of figuring out which style fits you and your fiance best? Start by narrowing down the images you like by collecting them through Pinterest or looking at wedding blogs for images you love. After making a collection of images, you will most likely see a common theme or thread through most of them. It might be a dreamy, romantic look, with some sort of editing that makes the colors look more faded. You may have chosen images that are more serious or pensive. Or maybe you love images that show a variety of emotions, with lots of happy pictures. When people ask me what my style is, I am always thinking in terms of these 3 components of style- I strive for photographs that are lively, simple, and/or interesting in the way they are shot. I try to edit very simply, usually just adding a little more light and doing my best to get it right in the camera. And I am very personal in my interactions with couples because I hope to show their personalities in my photographs which requires me to know them! If people contact me and ask for a different look than what I usually do, I always refer them to other photographers because I want them to find someone who fits their style. One word of caution in collecting images on Pinterest: you want to get the look of the photographs but not the exact shots. Every couple and day has it’s own unique setting, lighting, personality so it’s really difficult to duplicate a whole set of images and takes creativity away from the photographer. Certainly one or two shots that you just love are great and can be done but leave room for your day to be yours with all it’s own unique beauty.


In the end there is a great deal of overlap with all photographers. In light of the restaurant analogy, all mexican restaurants serve some sort of salsa and queso (we hope:), and all wedding photographers will take the obligatory and precious family photos. One noted photographer applied the 80/20 principle to wedding photography, that 80% of all photographers’ images are the same and 20% are different. It’s that 20% that you are trying to figure out in determining their specific style and bent. But no worries, they all can get the wedding party pictures and family portraits (with differing levels of expertise, of course). So look for the photos that you love, read the “about” sections of photographer’s websites and see if they seem like people you’d like to share your wedding day with, and your specific photography style will become evident through that. Hopefully you will find a good fit who will give you awesome images and a great experience!

We strongly advocate striking a balance of interest, textures and colors in any photo session. In this outdoor editorial against the canyons in Arizona, the juxtaposition between the simple and sleek Houghton NYC gown via The Dress Theory and the treacherous and beautiful terrain of Arizona create sweet harmony. We really love these photographs by Mary Claire Photography, mentored by Brushfire Photography with that eucalyptus-laden bouquet by Brittany Hansen…

From Mary Claire: “I had the amazing experience to do a mentoring session in Arizona with Mike and Brit of Brushfire Photography to learn more about and practice film photography.

Light reflecting from the cavernous canyon wall lit up the beautifully organic scene, illuminating the bride and groom. The soft, ethereal folds of the dress complimented the wild scenery and created movement, bringing the photos to life. This bride is feminine and sophisticated, yet daring. She loves the simplicity of neutral colors set against a lush, organic backdrop and isn’t afraid to brave wild terrain for intimate, breathtaking photos.”

Having a beach wedding doesn’t mean that the skies will be blue on your big day but this stunning editorial from Charla Storey Photography and The Southern Table shows that overcast skies and the grey tone can truly make for an elegant and romantic wedding style…

From Maxine ofThe Southern Table: “Our weather proved to be a little less sunny than we’d hoped, so we decided on a more moody color palette. We chose greys, deep blues, and pops of burgundy to pair with muted yellows, soft peaches, and pinks. The overcast skies set the backdrop for the ocean-side gathering. Taking inspiration from the natural rock formations and wood tones our team conceptualized an intimate outdoor dinner with breathtaking views of the landscape at dusk. The table scape was set with romantic candlelight and clear glass vessels to enhance the reclaimed wooden table from Found Rentals. Here, we selected delicate cafe au lait dahlias, hellebores, anemone, amaranthus and soft garden roses to accent the slate and ocean tones.

Charla Storey Photography perfectly captured our sea side model nestled in the sand with her piercing blue eyes accented by makeup artist Karina Fonti and hairstylist Nicholas Cole. The Dress Theory provided this romantic and effortless Sarah Seven gown that mimics the waves rolling against the beach."
