26 Wedding Photographers You Need to Follow on Instagram

photographer: Craig Paulson Studio

by Lauren Mandel, Director of Marketing 

Instagram has become so much more than a photo-sharing tool — personal brands can be amplified (or created), behind-the-scenes glimpses can be shared, and businesses can be grown. Wedding and event photographers offer some of the most beautiful photos on their Instagram feeds, but some of our absolute favorite accounts share so much more than gorgeous shots. Follow along with photographers as they attend industry events, or read the stories (in a caption, of course) of how their stunning photos were captured. Below are 26 wedding and event photographers who we love to follow on Instagram — and you will, too.
