Fine Art Wedding Photographer Jose Villa sets the standard high for aesthetic beauty in wedding photography.
Art deemed Fine Art, by its nature, implies that it is cultural, that it is aesthetically pleasing and that it will stand the test of time. This is a case of quality trumping quantity.
But more than a status symbol reserved for ivory towers and museum walls, Fine Art is a refined approach to the creative process.
Fine Art Wedding Photography is an approach to seeing the world that focuses on a specific set of material objects and their relationships to one another as best seen in Jose Villa’s gorgeous photos. Jose Villa’s accomplishments as a Fine Art Wedding Photographer and his innovative style continue to influence the world of wedding photography.
His pairings of close-up details at a wedding with moments from the wedding create a bridge between the original intent of the shoes, dress or table setting with the excitement and liveliness of the moments that comprise the day. His style and aesthetic is bright and clean creating a silent reverence for all objects at the event. Artists like Jose Villa are the standard bearers who challenge us to break free from the visual cliches.
