Meet Dustin Cantrell – Photography Crush

November 9, 2012 by
We can’t stress the importance of choosing the right photographer for your wedding enough. Not only because you will be looking at those images for the rest of your life, but also because you will be dealing with your photographer for the biggest part of your wedding day. It’s so important to click with the person documenting your day. So if you’re looking for a great photographer with a sense of adventure, then look no further than New York-based photographer Dustin Cantrell. He is incredibly passionate about travel and photography. Dustin caught the travel bug after a three month backpacking trip in Europe and soon found himself on a plane to Australia. During that time he worked on a cattle station in Western Australia and assisted a celebrityphotographer in Melbourne.
After gaining the confidence he needed behind the camera, he decided to find a home base and pursue a career as photographer. He has been working as wedding photographer for the past two years. “I’m happiest when I am behind the camera. I enjoy shooting with digital, film, and polaroid cameras,” says Dustin. On the day of the wedding Dustin likes to arrive as early as possible and stay late into the night. “I want to tell the full wedding story from the beginning to the end”. Dustin shoots in a relaxed and unobtrusive manner. Most of the time you won’t even realize he’s there. “I strongly believe candid shots are the best and these are the moments you are too busy to notice the day of the wedding. My goal is to capture your day, not dictate it,” says Dustin.

Elaine & Bryan, A Summer Countryside Celebration

A blind date has the potential to be much more than an awkward evening. For Elaine and Bryan it surely became more. Little did they know, that a blind date would become a refreshing summer’s day in the countryside to celebrate with 84 friends.I am excited to see that a vintage and rustic atmosphere can be so completely natural. It resonates fully with the love of the outdoors that this merry couple have.With the help of Brightgirl Photography, I’m happy to share the start of a beautiful journey from Nottingham Road in the Natal Midlands.
