Understanding some of the most popular Photographic Styles to help you choose the best option for your big day.
When it comes to photographic styles, we have no one particular style. We are happy to use the style or blend of different styles that you like best.
To give you some ideas below are some of the most popular styles our lovely couples have chosen in the past and examples where we have used them.
If you like a particular style be sure to let us know and we will tailor that style to your big day.
The romantic style is best described as soft and whimsical. It particularly goes well with scenes in nature and rustic wedding venues. When edited we like to give the images the warm soft tones and textures. See the examples:
The Creative Style incorporates advanced camera and flash techniques used to create compelling and creative effects. This incorporates the use of Off-Camera Flash using our portable studio strobes and softboxes, Long Exposures, crystals / prisms / fairy lights for special effects, and much more.
In the pursuit of getting the shot, our photographers sneak behind objects or find different perspectives by using reflections. The idea is to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Photojournalistic / Documentary Style
Wedding Photojournalism takes awareness of surroundings, knowledge of human tendencies, and patience. Each image captures an emotion, tells a story, or portrays a mood or feeling. We tend to try and avoid shots that don’t convey anything such as, you or your guests stuffing your face with food or elderly relatives dozing off.
We make sure to constantly survey the environment, listening in on conversations and anticipating that smile, laugh, tear, or hug. We have our framed shot in mind, our lighting set up perfectly, and we’re waiting for that expression.
We define photojournalism as placing ourselves in the right place at the right time, anticipating expressions of emotion and being ready to document events with an eye for storytelling. We apply this style of photography anytime we are photographing non-posed events, like ceremonies, the reception or wedding breakfast for example.
Our Editorial Style incorporates poses and post-production often found in Fashion Photography. These are generally described as “vogue,” stylish, and fashion forward. The backgrounds usually are more moody with deep shadows and dramatic lighting.
Engagement Shoot Style
Our Engagement shoots are a great opportunity for us to get to know our clients and what artistic styles they would like on their big day. We like to do a mixture of the romantic and creative styles as detailed above
