Complex Images

There’s something appealing about simplicity—but simplicity is not always the name of the game when it comes to wedding photography. Weddings can be big, sprawling affairs with convoluted stories that seem to come at you from every angle. As the Fearless Photographers in this gallery show, that can lead to wonderful images that are anything but simple! It takes a skilled eye and great reflexed to capture all the chaos in a way that captures all the energy while still telling a great story.

Vanity Fair is particularly well known for its elaborate group portraits that are constructed from many smaller vignettes. This image adapts that concept to a wedding setting by centering on the solo bride, framed prominently in a doorway. In multiple tiers all around her, various combinations of the women in her life are chatting and even grabbing selfies. It's a terrific job of posing and lighting that makes everyone look relaxed and natural.
