Photographer Captures ‘Badass’, Unconventional Photos Of Tattooed Couples
Wedding photography blogs featuring traditional white weddings are a dime a dozen, but Philadelphia-based photographer Mike Allebach chooses to take a different route by capturing unconventional photos of tattooed couples for his series ‘Tattooed Brides.’
Dubbed the ‘Original Tattooed Bride Photographer’, Allebach shoots edgy portraits that steer clear of the typical picture-perfect wedding scenes. With their tattoos, wild hair and piercings, the couples bring their colorful personalities and a ‘badass attitude’ to the photos, but the one thing that shines through is the deep love and affection between each couple.
Allebach says his photos are all about telling stories and states, “In the end, what I do isn’t about photography, photos or tattooed brides … it’s a passion to show everyone their story is important. I don’t pretend to run a normal wedding photography business or think that this is normal. Some people apologize for not being cool enough or for not having tattoos. Then I realize they are my kind of person. All I ask is that you show your true colors. Your story matters. Your story is worth telling. So let’s take some photos…”
