Top Ten Documentary Wedding Photos of 2012


Thanks to ten voters who helped me narrow down my best documentary wedding photos of 2012, I proudly present the best of my best from this past wedding season!  Actually, due to many images receiving the same number of votes, thirteen photos made the cut!  The top two images were clear winners with ten and seven votes, third and forth place were tied with five votes, and the remaining nine images had four votes each.

  1. Like Martin, I’ve discovered your work through our Facebook group. You’ve got a wonderful approach and a collection of remarkable images here, it’s been nothing but a pleasure to look through. Good luck with 2013 and I look forward to viewing tons more of your work Ray.

  2. Love these photos! Just beautiful. I see how you and Alex can work together beautifully and give couples very personal yet so professional a remembrance!
    Wasn’t Rancho Palos Verdes a beautiful place? My brother and family lived there for a number of years.
