When it comes to making choices about your wedding, one of the most important decisions that you will be making is the type of wedding photos that you would be getting. Remember that all the other aspects of the wedding would be gone and forgotten right after the event and all that you would have are your photos. They have to be perfect for your wedding photo frames.
Here are some of the more common types of wedding photos that you can get:
Photojournalistic- This type of photo is becoming more and more popular. The approach in this type of wedding photos is to just capture the moments as they are happening. The photographer does not tamper with scene in any way, just as a real photojournalist would. The photos are just there to tell how the wedding really took place. This type of approach is popular with couples who like to reminisce about the events and who likes to laugh and enjoy what happened there. The results of this type of photography are candid since they were not directed. That’s why you can get a lot of laughs with it.
Traditional- In the traditional type of wedding photo the bride and the groom are usually holding poses and the same thing is true with the rest of the wedding party. These shots are usually taken on formal locations. This is the normal kind of photography that you can find in wedding albums.
Artistic- This approach in wedding photography is gaining a lot of following right now. It uses all kinds of technique in order to achieve some unique look for the shot. Anything from soft-focus lenses to computer edited images are used for achieving the desired artistic look. This type of photography is also great for displaying a photo in frames.
Combination- Perhaps the best option is for you to use all of these approaches in photography for capturing your wedding. There are some situations there that would best be covered by candid photography with a journalistic approach, such as the moment of preparation for the wedding. Then there are pictures that you would to be captured with a more traditional approach where everyone is in their right positions. Then again you might want some artistic photos that you can show off to visitors.
These are just some of the things that you should keep in mind when you are picking the right type of photographer for you wedding event.
