Wedding photography has undoubtedly become an essential part of the ceremony. There are many different forms of photography. It all depends on the skills of the photographer and what the people at the wedding actually want.
* Traditional or classic photography: This is the kind of photography that does not require a lot of creativity. The photos are always done at eye level. Most wedding photos incorporate traditional photography in their shots, especially when taking pictures of the family and bridal team.
* Photojournalistic photography: As the name suggests, this type of photography aims to tell a story, mostly a love story. The photographer always recreates many scenes and even the setting that the wedding photos are done in aims to paint a beautiful story.
* Editorial: This type of photography is posed but purposeful. Think of it as a shot that is being done for a magazine. The subjects are very deliberate on how the images will be arranged. It is done in more of a ‘photoshoot’ format.
* Aerial photography: This type of photo is done from an upward angle to capture the whole scene. Of course, it might not be appealing to have the entire wedding taken in aerial mode. It, however, adds an interesting perspective to the marriage ceremony.
* Black and white: This is mostly done during the editing process. Some photographers will use black and white cameras to capture the whole mood. The essence of black and white wedding photography is to bring in some emotion and focus.
* Landscape photography: These photos are always taken in a scenic environment. Most people are now choosing beautiful scenes such as the beach, flower gardens, mountains, and other forms of nature.
If you are planning a wedding, you should have a candid discussion with your photographer to decide on the kind of style that will work best. You should also look at different portfolios of wedding photos for you to find inspiration.
