5 Wedding Photography Styles

When  it  comes  to  choosing  your  wedding  photographer  before  you  even  begin  searching   you  will  want  to  know  just  how  you  want  your  wedding  to  be  photographed.  Each  photographer  will  specialize  in  a  specific  style  so  knowing  what  style  you  prefer  can  make   finding  a  photographer  a  little  easier.  Most  wedding  photography  will  fall  into  one  of  these   5  styles.

 

Classic   When  you  choose  a  classic  style  the  results  are  images  that  stand  the  test  of  time.  These  are   the  traditional  black  and  white  images,  carefully  posed  and  meticulously  planned  out.  Most often  the  photographer  specializes  in  capturing  ordinary  moments  in  a  beautiful  and  elegant  way.  This  style  tends  to  be  a  bit  more  formal  but  can  always  be  given  a  modern   twist.

 

Artistic  If  you  want  something  that  is  more  personal  for  you  then  an  artistic  style  may  be  your  ideal  choice.  These  style  of  images  tend  to  capture  unique,  special  moments  and  tend  to  utilize  a   lot  more  of  the  space  around  the  couple  instead  of  just  capturing  the  couple  full  frame  and   up  close.  If  you  are  open  and  willing  to  have  a  bit  of  fun  with  your  photographer  you  will  be   amazed  by  the  results.

 

­‐ Lifestyle   Lifestyle  is  a  type  of  photojournalism  photography  with  a  bit  of  a  twist.  Most  images  will  appear  to  be  candid,  and  most  often  they  are.  This  style  is  a  mix  of  candid,  natural  shots  and   images  with  some  direction  and  staging  provided  to  get  the  perfect  shot! This type of photography is more of what we specialize in within our business.

 

Dramatic   While  all  styles  will  use  different  types  of  lighting,  dramatic  images  make  it  a  key   component.  This  style  will  showcase  a  variety  of  different  lighting  techniques  that  the  photographer  has  mastered  to  create  truly  breathtaking  portraits.

 

Documentary   If  you  are  not  into  the  traditional  posing  or  styling  of  shots,  then  a  documentary  wedding photographer  is  probably  one  you  will  want  to  consider.  The  documentary  style  focuses  on   candid  and  spontaneous  images  that  truly  capture  the  entire  essence  of  you  wedding  day.

 

In  general,  most  photographers  will  specialize  in  one  of  these  5  areas,  but  are  also  capable   of  doing  a mixture  of  different  styles! It  is  best  to  let  your  photographer  know  which  style   you  prefer  most  and  ask  if that  is  a  style  they  enjoy  shooting.
