Jesse Chamberlin Marble has shot over 500 weddings, and doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon. Her photographs are evocative, emotional, and rich in detail—partially, she admits—due to the fact that much of her clientele are creatives.
“They’re well aware that you don’t need to stick within the boundaries and rules of modern day weddings,” she says. “This makes my job exciting, and keeps me attached to taking great photos.”
Read on to discover some of Marble’s personal favorite shots.
“I almost fainted at the sight of this beautiful palette. The bride coordinated these dresses and the result is really impressive.”
“This couple is a pair of well-known artists. Todd hand-painted all of their wedding invites, and they had an intimate wedding in their house perched on a mountain—and filled every square foot with their 60 guests.”
“These two grooms had spent years in the headlines as two of the plaintiffs in the Supreme Court case that overturned California Proposition eight and paved the way for same-sex marriage in the state. The energy of this wedding was like nothing else I’ve ever felt. They symbolized a new freedom and a proper right for so many couples in love.”
“Not one dull moment with Marchelle and Ian. Not a single one. The Parker, The Ace, kilts, hot red lips, bagpipes, an owl, a hawk, a Flight of the Conchords performance, dance lessons, Smilebooth, great toasts, delivery of hundreds of roses as thank you’s… oh, and a lot of love.”
“This wonderful couple got married on a cliff in Martha’s Vineyard—one of my favorite places in the world. A perk was shooting from the lighthouse.”
“This couple got married out in the middle of the desert with only two of their friends and a Mariachi band.”
“Chris and Cody got married in San Miguel, Mexico. Over the years we’ve developed a very close relationship to the planners Bash Please, who made this wedding so magical by finding the best local vendors—including a parakeet that could tell your future.”
“They got married at a property in West Virginia owned by their grandmother, a place they visited every year.”
“Erin and Miles got married in Mexico….a perfect canvas for lovely photos.”
“Cammy and Nick can throw one wild party. They got married on their parents’ property on a lake. The fireworks were epic!”
