Photo Styles

One thing that is very important is your wedding photos. They will continue to speak forever and a day.  A lot of brides know what they want when it comes to photos but just do not know how to verbally express it.  Every photographer have their own unique signature style, and if they are a good photographer they can switch up and adapt to any style. Here are the diffrent syles of wedding photography....

Photojournalist (Candid)tells the unique story of your wedding, from the nervous anticipation before the start of the ceremony to the reception's electric slide dance. Photojournalism captures moments rather than poses, documenting the emotions and energy around the entire occasion — the father of the bride's tearing up, the groom's nervousness, the air of excitement as the bride appears for the first time. The photographer doesn't "direct you to pose" so the results are candid, spontaneous, and true. Capture the story of your day as it naturally unfolds.The downsides are few. You will end up with a wide variety of shots and captured moments to choose from for your wedding album. Some moments you might not even have witnessed, and they will serve as a record of how great a time your guests had at your wedding.

Traditional photography (sometimes known as "formal" photography or "portraiture") refers to posed pictures, usually of the wedding party and the couples' families. These are the shots of the bridesmaids with their bouquets, the groom with his parents, the happy bride and groom gazing into each others' eyes, etc. These are the style that your parents, grandparents, are from the 90's on back

Artistic photography is a sort of catch-all category that includes everything from soft-focus lenses and filters to hand-colored images. fishbowl lens shots and unusual camera angles. While these styles effects can make for a hip and modern photo collection, you run some risk of your photos appearing dated years down the road. These more spontaneous shots also have a timeless quality that ensures you album will always remain fresh and relevant. The key to artsy photography is to use it sparingly to highlight a particular moment, rather than to create an entire photo album of this style, it is an album not an art exhibit.
