Our Wedding Photography Styles Glossary Though there are no standard “dictionary definitions” of photographic styles it’s still a good idea to have an understanding of our different approaches
Originally favored by the news media this informal reality-based approach is the current rage in wedding photography. Rather than posing your pictures we follow you and your guests throughout the wedding day capturing events as they unfold in order to tell the story of your wedding. We fade into the background and become “invisible” to the crowd in order to get these candid or un-posed shots. Since the photojournalist does not give direction we have a keen eye and a willingness to “do what it takes to get the shot.”
Rather than making use of a camera flash we use the natural light found in a setting usually daylight. The look is warm with natural shadows. You will feel the image and see its beauty as you remember it to be.
The main idea behind this timeless style is to produce posed photographs for display in a portrait album. The photographer covers all the elements the bride and groom have requested. To make sure every detail of the shot is perfect the photographers not only adjust their equipment but also the background the subject’s body alignment and even the attire.
This style which is often used for engagement photos is a pleasing blend of traditional and photo-journalistic with an emphasis on composition lighting and background. We place subjects together in an interesting environment and encourage them to relax and interact. Illustrative captures some of the spontaneity of candids while offering the technical control of posed shots.
