Best Wedding Photography Styles:
Reportage Wedding Photography:
This type of wedding photography means the photographer spends most of his time in the background, making couples more and more famous. Weddings are also becoming less formal than they once were. Documentary wedding photography requires a different set of skills than conventional wedding photography and you have to make sure your photographer has the correct professional experience and can show you full wedding history to help this. Wedding photojournalism is more about a full collection of day-long pictures than a compilation of a dozen highlights.
Fine-Art Wedding Photography:
Essentially an evolution of traditional wedding photography, this style of photography provides a modern take on the conventional collection of posed images, though these are both concepts that the photographic community has been overused, so do your homework again. This genre can produce moving romantic images at its best, but some photographers may overuse the same poses so it may feel a little impersonal. Ask for plenty of shoots and don’t be afraid of your pre-wedding meeting to bring in your own thoughts.
Vintage Wedding Photography:
Vintage wedding photography is a trend that recently came into vogue but it’s a hard one to measure in several ways. Vintage can mean everything from using old film cameras during some of the weddings to just a particular post-production approach to making digital files that look ‘vintage.’ There are some fantastic photographers out there but bear in mind that if you obtain files that are heavily edited in a certain style, you run the risk of having your photographs some years later quite dated.
