Last week I was fortunate enough to spend time learning from one of the few wedding photographers that truly inspires me. John Michael Cooper came through town on his Very altf tour and was hosted by the wonderful Jason Domingues. If you haven’t seen John’s work your out for a real shock, we try to be untraditional but he takes it to a whole new level.


There is something so wonderfully honest and artistic about conceptual work and it was really an honor to see a master at work. But why just observe when you can be a part of the art? At every stop in the tour JMC shot a different conceptual series and what better than Dorothy and flying monkeys for KC? Even though some of the good looks are covered up I am the monkey on the left in the next three pictures. That’s right, I’ve been immortalized with a hairy mug. Oh well… it was a ton of fun.




Just watch out, I’ve had plenty of shoots like this rolling in my head over the last few years and they’re clawing to come out. It might not be today or tomorrow but they’re coming and I might just ask you to help out!

    Thank you for the links to the other photographers. We’re going to have to renew our vows just to have some cool pictures! I like where wedding photography is going.
