Tiny People with Big Love Stories
His whimsical wedding photography business, literally translated as Small Person, transforms engaged couples and newlyweds into miniature versions of themselves, living in a more fantastical world.
To achieve his imaginative brand of absurdism, Saelow crops his subjects out of original photographs and inserts them into a small-scale landscape (such as a toy truck or a tree branch).
He then applies a tilt-shift effect to create the illusion that the couple has shrunken to a plastic doll-like height of two inches. The result is a charming blend of humor and heart, offering a unique spin on traditional wedding photos. And, though the couples are physically small, the photos prove that their love remains mighty.
