Jeff Ascough, maybe you have heard of him already, is a really inspiring photographer. He seems to do mostly weddings, but is among the best in the world as he has been recently elected as Canon Ambassador. What he displays on his website is not the typical stuff, it's different, it's arty and shows a touch of old masters like Cartier-Bresson.
Check out the latest photos in his blog: jeffascough.typepad.com (take a look at the amazing first two photos on page 3: jeffascough.typepad.com/wpj_resource/page/3) as well as his website: www.jeffascough.com
I think there's a lot one can learn from his ability to tell stories within a single picture.
