Photography Tips by Karen Rusten
December 3, 2008

I was so excited when I received an email from Karen Rusten of Brown Mouse Photography in San Francisco about a fun project that she wanted to share with SMP readers. As a wedding photographer herself, Karen knows all too well just how important it is to find the right photographer to shoot your big day and how tricky it can be to get those magazine-worthy photos that we all crave.

Thus, she has enlisted the help of some pretty fabulous photographers (think Jose Villa, Elizabeth Messina, Tanja Lippert...) to share their secrets for getting stunning images of you and your soon-to-be on your wedding day.

Before we get to the tips though, I wanted to share a few pictures that Karen has taken. The first is a bridal shoot that she shot that I kind of fell in love with...
