Jumping Wedding Photos idea comes from a Master Photographer: Philippe Halsman

Philippe Halsman (1906-1979) is a huge reference in the photography world, being one of the “Masters”. Imagine how far his heritage has gone, his jumping concept many years later, is widely used in wedding or engagement photographs !!!

Halsman’s theory about the jumping: “When you ask a person to jump, his attention is mostly directed toward the act of jumping and the mask falls so that the real person appears.” Halsman developed a philosophy of jump photography, which he called jumpology. He published Philippe Halsman’s Jump Book in 1959, which contained a tongue-in-cheek discussion of jumpology and 178 photographs of celebrity jumpers.

Brides & Grooms to be: Maybe jumping is fun but not “your style”, no worries, with Al Ojeda Photography, we will “read” what defines who YOU are and shot accordingly!
