Nokia Lumia 1020 crashes a wedding, comes away a winner

There’s very little debate that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is capable of taking some fantastic pictures.  But would you test that theory on such a memorable event as a wedding?  An event where the moment doesn’t always afford you the chance to re-take the picture?

Wedding photographer Joy Marie Smallwood took such a chance at a recent wedding that took place at Capella Pedregal in Cabo, Mexico.  The results held true to the Lumia 1020’s reputation.

Smallwood is usually armed with a range of DSLR cameras and in using the Lumia 1020, she commented:

“The quality of the photos we took at the Cabo wedding using the Lumia 1020 were crisp with a great depth of colour and totally exceeded our expectations. The 41-megapixel sensor is pretty outstanding for a camera phone.”

Smallwood was equally impressed with the controls Nokia Camera provided, allowing her to adjust the ISO and other settings to better match the lighting conditions that she faced.

You can find the high-res copies of these and more images over at Nokia Conversations.

Thanks, Richard, for the tip!
