About For those of you that don’t know, Eleven Weddings Photography is run by Chip Litherland (actually, why do we all talk in the third person, when you know it’s just me sitting in my studio writing this? Sorry, I digress). I’m a photographer based in Denver, Colo., and Sarasota, Fla., (it's possible) and spend most of my time chasing light and color. It’s an addiction really. In fact I search out brides with the infamous red dress. It’s my Holy Grail. Wear a red dress to your wedding, call me, and I will hook you up. I’m an award-winning photographer with over ten years of experience working in photojournalism and am a regular photographer for ESPN the Magazine, TIME, LEGOLAND, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, and many others. Most of my editorial and so-called “normal” work can be found over at my (other) site - http://www.chiplitherland.com. I would normally run through a laundry list of awards and recognitions right here, but I’m going to bypass all of that and just get to the history of how I got to this point at midnight on a Monday watching 934 photos from my last wedding upload to a clients’ website. Over the last several years, what once was a side business I did mostly for friends of sisters and cousins whose friend has a buddy who needs a photographer has quickly become a successful wedding photography business. I shoot for some amazing brides and grooms, who really can appreciate how I see and what I do. It has opened so many doors, allowed me to travel the world, and – quite frankly – is just a lot of fun. Being a photojournalist first and foremost has given me a genuine desire to meet people (yes, even your wacky aunt). I enjoy the day alongside you. I will spare you my dancing. I do, however, crack a smile every time that I find myself standing with the bride as she sits alone waiting to make her grand entrance. It gives me such a tremendous feeling to know that this young woman has trusted me with this moment, and that I’m the guy who she spends most of her wedding day with. I’ve seen some amazing moments touching on every emotion out there. What I do is cover your day as is. Not with a “Do that again,” “Hey, can you move over here a little,” or “Can you cut the cake slower?” I approach weddings the same way I do for an editorial gig, with a sense of responsibility, wide wandering eyes, and the passion to make images that go beyond what the cookie-cutter wedding photography out there clogging up search engines and bridal magazine pages. I’m happy to talk, so please contact me via my endless stream of social networking and digital gadgetry. This is not a job for your buddy, Steve, who says he has a really nice camera and says he’ll do it for free. Trust me on that one. I’ve seen the result of that decision and it was not good. Let me know how I can help. Leave Steve out of it. For more information on availability, pricing, etc., please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org on anywhere on the Interwebs. I book worldwide, and can build custom packages to fit whatever island, mountain top, or roller coaster you’re getting hitched on. Let's chat, tweet, email, text, skype, swipe right, and talk about how we're going to have fun making pictures on your day.
