It is no secret that weddings at Capella Pedregal are my favorite! I love observing the entire process of planning, food tasting, rehearsal dinners, decorations and the wedding day itself. And while each of the weddings is tailored to each individual couple, there is one wedding I wanted to share with you today – the wedding of a beautiful couple Crista and Chris, which was captured, the first in the world, entirely with the smartphone Nokia Lumia 1020.
I discovered the photos online, and then approached the photographer Joy Marie Smalwood to get more details about this unique wedding. Joy Marie told me that when a PR firm initially approached her about a “secret project” with an unnamed client, her immediate thought was that it was a scam. But it turned out that this was a real invitation by Nokia to photograph an entire wedding on their new smartphone, which has 41 megapixel capacity and several features, which we would normally find on a professional camera.
And while at Joy Marie Photography they love to push the boundaries, they were at first skeptical and nervous. But they researched the capabilities of the phone, and decided to give it a try. The bride and groom to be, Crista and Cris, have an adventurous spirit, and they agreed to have their Capella Pedregal wedding photographed with a smartphone. Were they happy with the results? “We can’t get over how well everything turned out. Very impressive.”
Myself and the entire Capella Pedregal team are impressed as well, and I’m so happy to share some of my favorite photos from Crista and Chris’s smartphone wedding, captured by Joy Marie Photography on Nokia Lumia 1020, with you.
