Successful Wedding Photography Begins with the Photographer

201706-121005-nag-indian-wedding-3586-edit__large_800_533_75_112288854b3c38ff.jpgLos Angeles-based Brian and Allison Callaway are a rare team in the photography industry: they're as comfortable in front of the camera as they are behind it. A former actor and model respectively, they've channeled their knowledge of how awkward it can be to be photographed into a thriving wedding photography business. 

Understanding that it's not a natural thing to have a camera in your face all day long, the Callaways prioritize their couples' comfort while working with them to craft scenes that will lead to great images.

“The idea is to actually insert photojournalism into the portraits,” explains Brian. “We set the scene, put the people into it, give a little bit of direction, and then let them interact naturally. We are always trying to figure out a way to make a photo that shows off their connection and makes you feel something.”
