I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a huge romantic. My friends actually make fun of my cynicism at times.

I also know that I tend to be drawn to landscape photos. Capturing nature is one of my favorite things. Catching the sun at just the right angle or seeing buildings from a different perspective…that’s what my heart is drawn to.

However, I recently came across the website for Reminisce Photography.  I found them because a friend of mine and her fiance used them for their engagement photos. I was looking at their blog to see a sample of the engagement photos and ended up spending a couple of hours browsing all the engagement and wedding photos…which is completely out of character for me. But photos like this just get to me:

Beautifully shot. Really captures the emotion of the day. And it’s not your “typical” wedding photo.

Miranda and Adam, the owners and artists behind Reminisce Photography, are a husband and wife based out of Milwaukee, WI.  From browsing their work, it seems that they really understand the subjects they are shooting. Every couple has a different feel to the photos that seem to capture the personalities.

One of my favorite posts on their blog featured the “Best of 2009” photos and allowed viewers to vote on their favorites. One of my friend’s engagement photos was chosen (and won 2nd place!).

Honestly, if you have a moment and are feeling a bit romantic or sentimental, stop over to their site. Their work is beautiful and very creative.

Who knows, if (and that is a BIG if) I ever get married…I just might choose Adam and Miranda as my wedding photographers!

A few months ago I stumbled upon The Windy Pixel when I was searching for photography inspiration.  I was instantly hooked by the beautiful photos and spent a couple hours browsing through their site. To this day, it is one of my favorite photography blogs.

tWp is run by two photographers, Justin Kern and Mike Boehmer.  They focus primarily on photos of Chicago (which is why I was originally drawn in…), and they take “High Dynamic Range” (or HDR) photos.

I highly suggest taking a minute and browsing their blog.  They’re both incredibly talented photographers who truly capture the beauty of Chicago.  (They venture outside Chicago and get some amazing nature shots too!).
