Kim & Kanye’s Wedding Photographer Conor McDonnell’s Rockstar Portfolio

By // May 29, 2014 // Posted in Industry News, Photography, Portrait, Wedding

What can we say about the Kardashian/West nuptials that hasn’t already been said? Florence, Givenchy Haute Couture and Jaden Smith in a white Batsuit—you get the gist.

But the real star of the show—by our concerns—is the modest couple’s official wedding photographer: 22-year-old Brit, Conor McDonnell.

The photographer and director has a rich portfolio of musicians and pop stars—notably, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, Jessie J, Pink, Usher, One Direction and (my dearest Canadian treasure) Drake.

We emailed McDonnell to ask him some questions about shooting the high-profile event, and we’ll update you when he writes back.

Until then, the Liverpool Echo interviewed McDonnell about his work back in 2012, during which the young shooter confessed his dream job would be to go on tour with Dave Grohl or Kanye and Jay-Z. However, after this last weekend’s events and press, is it possible that the photographer may have a future in weddings? Stay tuned.
