Joseph Salvatore Prezioso began shooting at age 16 as a stringer for a local chain of newspapers, learning to shoot on the streets next to some of Boston's best Globe and AP photographers. He was there before digital took over and learned to shoot on film before switching to digital. Today, Joseph has switched back to film after many years of shooting digital. He is a successful wedding photographer, shooting weddings entirely on film. Joseph is also the author of Fearless Photographer: Weddings. His goal in life is to push boundaries and stay creative.
Ingrid Nelson is a professional photographer living in the foothills of Northern California. The daughter of two painters, she fell into artistic expression quite easily and started taking her first photos around the age of 10. She started shooting professionally in 2002, when she created her business, Myrtle & Marjoram. Since then, many weddings and moments later, she finds herself still inspired by the lens and the world around her. Oh, and she still shoots film.
