Photography Styles & Themes
In todays world of wedding photography, there are two common trends that lead the way. Both can be considered equal in terms of professionalism and artistry.
The first is:
- Portray or studio style presentation.
This is where all the captured images of the day are interpreted through the visionary style of the photographers artistic abilities. The photographer will use his or her experience, techniques and skills to portray the events of the day in an interpretive way in order to capture the moods, atmosphere and fantasy of the wedding that makes for an impacting display. There will be a number of images captured from both candid moments to formulated layouts all of which will be perfect in the completed album and present what is traditionally romantic. The photographer will require time and space to setup his or her vision of what they would like to create along with a brief and informed conversation with you, your spouse to-be and the wedding party.
- Journalistic portrayal
The term journalist refers to an individual that works to capture information as dictated to with no specific objective other than to tell a story. In wedding photography, the term would indicate a similar meaning in the way that more than 90% of images will be of candid shots. The idea for this type of photography is to capture a more realistic portrayal of the wedding day without the imposition of style or layout. The images captured will be done to tell the true story of the wedding day by capturing images that display people unaware and natural in interaction, expressions and the display of emotions. These images will be considered priceless based on how they work to depict the wedding in a story like manor similar to what can only be done by a video camera (without the movement of course).
Your wedding photos will be among your most valuable wedding day collected treasures of memorabilias. For this very reason you will want to take every step to ensure your ultimate satisfaction. This is done by asking the appropriate questions, examining the photographers work and to pick a photographer whose style and philosophy are most in-sync with your ideas and personal taste.
