A Different Kind of Wedding Detail | One Perfect Moment

OMG, have you seen Moment Junkie? I’m convinced that this is the best wedding blog on the internet right now. Seriously, it crushes anything else out there. It serves up daily photos of real weddings and real wedding moments.

The brain child of top-flight wedding photographers Ryan Brenizer, Kyle Hepp, and  Chris Lin, Moment Junkie “showcas[es] the best in contemporary wedding photojournalism, with a focus on moments between people that are timeless, heartbreaking, hilarious, or all of the above.”

Um yay! I’ve spend so much time looking through this site. All of the moments that make up a wedding: the good, the precious, the shocking and the hilarious are all here.

Yes, I know dear reader, after all that bitching, moaning, and manifesto-ing about the “real meaning” of weddings (here, here, and here), most of us bloggers went back to our usual brew. To be fair, bloggers who are serious about their craft know what their readers want and give it to them, whether that is vintage details, off beat alternatives or or real mountain wedding advice.

But so many of you crave a great big does of real wedding moments, stripped of all the crazy details: the escort cards, the dessert buffets, the photo booth props, and the finely curated “tablescapes” overflowing with vintage bric-a-brac.

Go ladies go! Get your butts over to Moment Junkie for swoon-worthy details that have nothing to do with stuff.

P.S. Hindsight Bride favorites, Derek and Galen from Two Ring Studios are (of course) featured on Moment Junkie. No surprise there. Derek and Galen are consummate moment junkies, capturing some of the most poignant and dynamic wedding photos I’ve seen among mountain photographers. Personally I think they take the best dance floor pictures.  Do check them out. Oh, and they’re available for travel!
