Weddings - Doug Plummer

A word about how I treat weddings. I am not a "wedding photographer." I don't consider myself a part of the wedding industry. Instead, I am a visual witness, whose job is to create a true picture of this important event.

My style is spontaneous, non-traditional, documentary storytelling that captures the essence of the event. I consider myself a privileged guest at a wedding, and I’m respectful of my hosts. I don’t “run” the wedding. I don’t order people into endless poses, and I avoid intruding into the rhythm of the ceremonies. I’m just there. Often I’m in the very middle of whatever is happening, where, it turns out, I’m the most inconspicuous. The goal is good photography, in a manner that contributes to the joy of the families and friends sharing this day together.

What People Say

"We felt that you were an integral part of the moment, more a friend who was a part of our special day than a professional documenting typical wedding happenings. We were hoping to avoid photography that was too "cheesy" or "shmultzy," and you achieved just that. We so appreciated how you simply became part of the gang."  – Maia and Andrew Kaz

"I'm sitting here in my home in Pennsylvania with tears running down my face. Thank you, thank you, thank you...not only for your amazing sensitivity and ability to capture that special time but also your equally amazing talent to be there in the moment with us...and without us realizing you are visually capturing it for us."  –Beth Holmes

"You told the whole story of our wedding day. They were not merely wedding photos, but great portraits of the people we love."  –Katy DeRozier

"We just took a look at the photos and WE COULDN'T STOP!! Ed kept saying, "WOW!" and "THAT"S AMAZING!" and "OH, PERFECT!!" We both think these are the best wedding photos we have ever seen, and we aren't just prejudiced towards the ones of us! We love the shots of the kids and the folks at the river and the music shots; everything is just beautiful!"

–Laura Littlefield
