Photographer captures entire wedding with Nokia's Lumia 1020, and it looks good

Celebrity photographer Joe Marie Smallwood captured a wedding in Cabo, Mexico using only Nokia's Lumia 1020 and ditching her professional equipment.

The photos were released in partnership with Nokia, who is hoping to show the power off the Lumia 1020's camera with the gallery. The camera is the Lumia 1020's main selling point, and if these photos are truly unaltered without any software besides what is found on the smartphone, they are pretty stunning.

The Lumia 1020 features a 41-megapixel sensor, along with Pro Cam and Creative Studio applications. In both apps you can adjust white balance, ISO, retouch certain aspects of a photo, and add other creative options. We suspect Smallwood did plenty of that in her set of wedding photos.

“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," said Smallwood. "The 41-megapixel sensor is pretty outstanding for a camera phone.”

If you look past the marketing blunder, and again if these photos are truly unaltered, Nokia's got a real product on its hands here.
