Before I start listing the best Instagram wedding photography accounts, let me share an anecdote with you. So I was speaking to a friend of mine, who also happens to be a super hip 15-year old who isn’t on Facebook. I asked why she wasn’t on Facebook, since legit every single person on planet earth is, and she said, “Facebook is for old people; the cool kids are on Instagram.” After getting over the initial shock of realizing that I am considered “old” for being on Facebook, I realized what a gospel statement that was- Instagram is legit where all the cool stuff is happening, and it is the new everything for people like me, who are obsessed with apps.
Now that I have sung unpaid praises for Instagram, I should get to the point. Earlier, people got wedding ideas from other creative people who turned it into a profession and called it wedding planning. After that came the internet, where you could look at other people getting married (celebrities especially) and draw inspiration from whatever other people thought was cool. Then came Pinterest, which became a store house of ideas and suggestions, where you could “pin” ideas on your board. However, now that Instagram has introduced the “save” feature, you can save pictures that you see on your feed, to your profile.
Instagram also has some of the best photographers in the world uploading their art for you to double tap on, but since I am borderline obsessed with weddings (okay not borderline, I am definitely obsessed with weddings), I am going to list for you the best Instagram wedding photography accounts for you to follow. So go nuts saving drop-dead gorgeous ideas for your impending (or in my case, imaginary) wedding, and make your otherwise shitty day that much better and brighter!
The whole point of a destination wedding is for it to be remembered, and there is no better way to preserve memories, other than through photographs. This is the essence that is captured in all of Jose’s photographs, which catalogue the journey of several couples who get married in gorgeous, outlandish and quaint destination weddings. Follow this account if you believe wedding photography is truly a fine art.

I fell in love with photography through film, but when I moved to Nashville, I discovered that most people, especially in the commercial world, were all shooting digital. I guess it was the thing at the time. So I figured I should keep up—not to mention, it was cheaper. I shot digital for years—even for weddings. After a while, I got burned out on it. I realized that even with digital images, I was trying to make everything look like film anyways. I prefer the look of film. That meant hours and hours in post-production behind the computer when all I really wanted to do was shoot. So the transition back to film made a lot of sense for me. I fell back in love with the simplicity of shooting film; with the fact that my craft could be focused more in the moment instead of in post-production. That isn’t to say that I made the transition immediately. I still brought my digital camera with me to weddings, and I still almost always shoot digital for commercial (it’s the industry standard), but over time, I worked to get reaquainted with film. I chat about both mediums and share details of my film and digital equipment in my online courses. #ifimade #weddingphotography #commercialphotography⠀

This is one of the most popular wedding Instagram accounts, because the photographer is one of the best in the business. She has an incredible sense of style when it comes to styling her pictures, and she also travels all over the world, taking pictures of couples getting married in the most beautiful places.
The account is replete with couples all loved up, and couples getting married and stunning shots of the places that they get married in, which is why I am so totally obsessed with this account.

These guys taking pictures of beautiful couples in India, who are getting married, honestly give me life. Their pictures are fresh, fun and unique. Not only do you get to ogle at candid moments of true love shared between two people, but you also get major inspiration for your own shoots for your own wedding, because you feel like saving all of their wonderfully emotional pictures.

This is one of my personal favorite wedding photography accounts on Instagram. Everyone knows that the bride is the highlight of any wedding, and a gorgeous, portrait shot of the bride is a must-have.
This is an art that Elizabeth Messina seems to have mastered, for all her pictures of the bride are drop dead gorgeous. If you are into incredible aesthetics and bride portraits that take your breath away, then this is the ultimate Instagram account for you.
