Bride and groom say ‘I do’ to Lumia 1020 wedding

Celebrity photographer Joy Marie Smallwood used a Nokia Lumia 1020 to capture a wedding that took place recently at Capella Pedregal in Cabo, Mexico.

It’s a testament to the power and quality of the smartphone that both the photographer and the happy couple agreed to trust the record of their special day to the Lumia 1020.

“The quality of the photos we took at the Cabo wedding using the Lumia 1020 were crisp with a great depth of colour and totally exceeded our expectations. The 41-megapixel sensor is pretty outstanding for a camera phone,” says Joy Marie.

The photos that resulted show its capabilities in capturing detail, with the ZEISS optics and massive sensor working hard to give the best results.

Of course, the low light performance of Nokia’s latest super-shooter is excellent too, with the wide aperture and Optical Image Stabilisation joining forces to soak in all the available light.

“One aspect I particularly liked was the wide frame, while shooting the artistic wedding shots at Capella Pedregal, the photos were comparable to those I would take on my DSLR,” Joy Marie continues.

“I also loved the smart camera app on the phone, it meant I was able to capture emotion and those quick moments you always get in a wedding, and it even gave me the best shot to keep.”

The bride, Crista, a day spa owner from California and groom, Chris, an Executive Producer from New York, said, “We were really excited and honoured when Joy approached us about having our wedding shot using a Lumia 1020. She’s an incredible photographer so we were more than happy to have it done. We can’t get over how well they have come out. It is very impressive.”
