10 Photographers Who Make You Fall in Love [My Modern Metropolis]

10 Photographers Who Make You Fall in Love: "

Oh, love is in the air! Just in time for Valentine's Day, we've put together a list of ten photographers who know how to give us that warm and fuzzy feeling. From Chris Craymer and Michael Creagh's authentic couple photos, to Max Wanger and Craig and Kitty Fritz's wonderful wedding moments, we hope you enjoy these happy and heartfelt shots.



1. Chris Craymer



London-born photographer Chis Craymer specializes in fashion, beauty, and portrait photography. His work has appeared in editorials for Vogue Britain, Vanity Fair Italia, and Harper's Bazaar. A few years ago, he put together a beautiful book called Romance which was 'essentially emotional rather than intellectual or fashion led.' As he says, 'Romance for me was the perfect vehicle to make pictures which can covey a number of emotions...I wanted to try to make pictures which could be for example sexy, funny, joyful and also powerful and even soulful.'

2. Mario Testino



Peruvian Mario Testino is one of the most celebrated fashion photographers of our time. He is best known for his highly polished ad campaigns for Burberry, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and his editorials in Vanity Fair and Vogue. Here, he shows us just how magical family life can be with model Natalia Vodianova for Vogue. [Link]



3. Rodney Smith



Yale graduate Rodney Smith is one of those photographers I've been a fan of for a very long time. Besides Tim Walker, there's no other photographer out there, in my mind, whose photos embody a magical combination of style, wit and whimsy. [Link]



4. Max Wanger



Max Wanger is an LA-based photographer who takes modern vintage-style wedding and engagement photos. Here he performs his magic again with this wedding photo shoot of Adela and Rich. [Link]



5. Craig and Kitty Fritz



Twin Lens is a very talented husband and wife team whose artful documentary style wedding photography is absolutely breathtaking. As photojournalists, they've worked for well-respected publications like the New York Times, USA Today and Time magazine. [Link]



6. Michael Creagh



New York-based fashion photographer Michael Creagh is known for shooting editorial and commercial advertising. Like Chris Craymer, Creagh believes that true passion can't be forced. So, he enlisted the help of models and their actual boyfriends for this photo shoot. [Link]



7. Kalle Gustafsson



Born in Lund, Sweden, Kalle Gustafsson studied film in Sydney, Australia and photography in Paris. He has that uncanny ability to tell a vivid story through his shots. [Link]



8. Thad and Sarah Lawrence



Thad and Sarah Lawrence are a husband and wife team who have a shared passion for enriching lives through photography. If there was one couple who could show us the ups and downs of a relationship it would be them. Using Photoshop, they've created a hilarious set of photos that include everything from Sarah vacuuming her husband to lighting him on fire. [Link]



9. Matt and Angie Sloan



For this couple's engagement session, husband and wife photography team Matt and Angie Sloan of Sloan Photographers captured love in a beautifully nostalgic way. No fancy hotel backdrop, no pretense in the air...just a swing, a blanket, some vinyl and some soda pop. [Link]



10. Joy Harmon Prouty



Joy Prouty specializes in fresh, vintage-inspired lifestyle photography. Called Young Love, this set stars the sweet, young couple Gracie (age 3) and Zeke (age 4). They were taken by Joy, or Gracie's mom. [Link]
