His work is astonishing in its beauty. Wedding photography is probably the toughest, most demanding kind of shooting that doesn’t involve actually entering a war zone. When it’s done with distinctive beauty, it is an impressive feat.

Scott Robert Lim is that kind of photographer. He produces amazing work under the pressure of a day when there is so much happening, I don’t know how people keep up with the schedule, much less create beautiful photos during that wild ride.

Watching Scott do his PhotoWeekLIVE presentation of “Crazy Stupid Wedding Light” was inspiring even to someone who has no ambition to shoot weddings, ever. The way he breaks down the esthetics and the practical considerations of constructing photos out of the material and settings that happen to be there was an eye-opener.

Lim is also a genuinely nice guy with a sly sense of humor and a ready laugh. It’s a pleasure to learn from pros like him.

If you’re seeing this article during its publication week, you can catch a new three-day course, “Think Like a 10k Wedding Photographer” on creativeLIVE, running from 9:00am – 4:00pm PST, 12/4/13-12/6/13.


This is one profile in a series about photographers to follow in 2014. These are people who are doing groundbreaking photographic work and who teach the rest of us how to do it too. They fit the PhotographyTricks motto: spreading passion for life through photography.

This series of photographer profiles and any other references exist on this site solely because I admire and frequently take advantage of their broadcasts.
