Rustic Chic Ojai Wedding & iPhone Wedding Follow Up | Alison Photography Ojai
Hello! What happened to August?! Or the rest of the Summer, for that matter?! I am excited to finally share some more of my images from the sweet, rustic chic wedding I shot in Ojai earlier this Summer with the lovely and talented Teri Kramer of Teri Kramer Photography.
Before I do, though, I've been thinking recently that I may have communicated something I didn't intend with my iPhone wedding post, so I want to share some thoughts here for clarification. I did not mean to imply that an iPhone is a suitable substitute for professional equipment, or that anyone with an iPhone can shoot a wedding! Rather, I meant to show that an artist can create photographic art with professional equipment or otherwise. The equipment is only part of the equation - there are amazing photos taken with iPhones (see the iPhone Photography Awards) - and there are not-so-amazing photos taken with 5D Mark IIIs (many by me, of course, because even professionals and artists don't get it right every time - that's why we shoot so many frames!)! Also, I meant to convey that I believe making a photo is always better than not making a photo, and so to not let your equipment limit you - use what you have and capture those precious moments! Your future self, family and friends will appreciate it - mostly :)
All of that said, I highly urge couples to hire professional photographers to shoot their weddings! The photos will be among the few tangible reminders of their special days, and the risks far outweigh the benefits of having friends with "nice cameras" - or even professionals with iPhones (except in the background) - shoot their weddings ;)
Please enjoy these beautiful images from this amazing day in Ojai, and feel free to comment if you're so inclined!
The cowboy boots were such a fun detail!
Something about the way her hair, the plate in the sink and her tattoo relate here caught my eye.
Meanwhile, the men practiced their baller moves with the iron!
Shots 'n' tats!

Working out her dance moves . . . Could she be any cuter?
I just love this sunflower bouquet!
They were a fun group :)
This was a 'grab shot' between poses - the focus is in an odd place, and the framing isn't exactly how I would have done it if I'd had more time to compose it, but I just love it for some reason.
I think this moment right before a kiss between two people in love looks so intimate and sensual.
