Are you a plus size or curvy bride, looking for a photographer to work with for your special day? It wasn’t until I was helping a plus size bestie plan her wedding that I ran into a problem:
Many photographers don’t show images featuring plus size brides, or never show “styled shoots” featuring a bride above a size 6.
Cool, cool. We’re 67% of the population, but not worthy of being in photos? I don’t think so!
I started to do some research, and I’ve since come up with a list of 20+ photographers who celebrate and feature plus size brides in their media. I’m not vouching for their work or professionalism (I haven’t worked with them!), but this is a good place to start if you’re searching for a talented photographer for your engagement photos, save-the-date mailer or wedding!
If you’re looking for a specific state, use the “CTRL+F” function on your keyboard. Many of the photographers on this list do travel for weddings, so be sure to scroll through the whole list!
