The history of wedding photography starts with traditional style approach. This is the timeless style that you've probably seen time and time again offered by local and international photographers. The hallmark of this style is carefully posed photographs of the key moments. Benefits: The traditional photographers usually use a planned "shot list", which means you'll get all the important images. Drawbacks: The photographer virtually becomes a "wedding official," directing the wedding party and guests according to a pre-planned list. This approach is very time consuming, and as a result, the bride and groom end up spending less time with their guests. The wedding album look is attractive, yet predictable. We recommend to those couples who value posed photographs of their family and friends but prefer to see emotions and some action to rent photo booth. This allows guests to be themselves behind the curtain and results in hundreds of posed yet real photographs.
Contemporary style also known as photo reportage and documentary approach, photojournalism has become a very popular style, used by many best wedding photographers, features a series of candid photos covering the entire day. Benefits: wedding photojournalism gives you a series of unique images aimed to "tell the story" of your wedding day. Drawbacks: There is no pre-planned "shot list," only the photographer's instincts; images are unpredictable. Low levels of available light may cause some pictures to look grainy. The couple may regret the absence of traditional, posed portraits in their album.
The illustrative style photographers place the subjects in certain settings to take advantage of good lighting or backgrounds. Then, once the scene is set, the couple and their party are free to be themselves, and this results in a more spontaneous feel. Unlike the photojournalistic style, illustrative photography takes advantage of the photographer's artistic judgment rather than capturing a series of moments. This style often used by the best engagement and pre wedding photographers. However, when it comes to decisive moments such as in proposal photography, this style can not be used.
