The Different Styles of Wedding Photography

The Different Styles of Wedding Photography

Your wedding day is one of the major milestones of your life. With all the money you spend on that perfect dress, your beautiful flowers, your romantic venue and the many other things that go together to create your perfect day, you want your memories recorded to reflect your personality and style.

Different photographers shoot in different styles and it is important to cut through the sales pitch and the fancy jargon to find one that can help you match the vision for your wedding photographs.

I have outlined the 3 main styles of wedding photography available today, although in many cases it is possible for a photographer to shoot in more than one style.

Traditional wedding photography

Traditional, or sometimes called Classical wedding photography captures the traditional wedding day pictures including the unforgettable moments of your wedding day including the exchange of rings, signing the marriage register, walking down the aisle as husband and wife, family groups and the cutting of the cake to name a few.

Weddings are still considered formal occasions and this type of wedding photography has stood the test of time. With careful lighting and expert posing traditional wedding photography creates a perfect record of your family gathering. A good photographer will be able to work quickly and be able to put people at ease to ensure the posing doesn’t look uncomfortable.

These are the type of shots Mum and Granny expect to see from the wedding photos and can often be found on display in homes on the wall or mantelpiece.

Traditional wedding photography has sometimes had a bad reputation caused by bossy or grumpy photographers or photographers taking ages to complete endless group shots with the bride and groom ending up spending more time in front of a camera and less time with their guests enjoying their wedding day.
