Traditional Photography style called "classic" style because it’s been around the longest and was common until recently. From the early photography days, the tradition was to have people “pose”, and then take a picture. So there you have it, the Traditional style of Wedding Photography when people pose for the camera.
The Traditional Style of Wedding Photography usually calls for a shot list. The photographer will focus on a step-by-step checklist, to make sure he has photographed everyone the bride and groom want. The print quality, correct lighting and proper background are photographer's main concerns.
Traditional photographers usually excel in portraiture, making sure that their wedding subjects will look great. To make sure everything is just as it should be, every detail including: body alignment, lighting equipment, the background, even the dress, has be set. This takes time. Traditional Wedding Photography has a time commitment from the Bride and Groom. Often the photographer is left in charge of the flow of the wedding to accommodate his need of posing the pictures. The main idea behind the true traditional wedding photography style, is to create posed photographs to be displayed in a portrait album.
As a photojournalist, I make every effort to include posed portraits while photographing your wedding.
