Aimée Flynn says her style is true to life, both in her edits and in how she shoots. “I love images that are lightly colorful, sun soaked or moody (depending on weather conditions),” says the digital photographer who shoots entirely on Canon.
“I lean towards a documentary style and refrain from inserting myself into a couple’s photos as much as possible,” she says. “I want to capture real, honest moments artfully and authentically. There is so much magic in the everyday interaction of folks—interaction with each other and interaction with their environment—I don’t really want to mess with that. Of course there is time for traditional portraits where I take on a more ‘prompting’ approach, but couples know how they fit together. They’ve been doing it for years. They know how to connect already—it’s my job to capture it.”
Aimeé Flynn says her goal in post, she adds, is to balance two equally important factors: how the moment looked in real time and how the moment truly felt. “Couples chose these incredible wild locations for a reason, so I want my edits to be as true to life as possible. I love bold, contrasty, and colorful images that are timeless and fun. I want my edits to distill these important moments as purely as possible—with only slight cropping, occasional black-and-white edits, and a light hand.”
