How To Choose
There are number of things you need to take into account when selecting a photographer, including how much you want to spend, and the photographer’s experience and reputation. It’s also important to think about the type of photography you prefer – whether traditional, reportage or contemporary.
When it comes to wedding photography, reportage style photography, is a relatively recent addition to the wedding photographer’s arsenal, but thanks to its natural approach it is a style that has soared in popularity in recent years. Rather than staged photographs, a reportage photographer will unobtrusively follow you and your guests throughout the day, capturing natural, un-staged shots as they happen.
The original photography style for weddings, traditional photography focusses on taking carefully composed shots of the wedding couple and groups of friends and family. The advantage of this approach is that you know what shots you are getting and can make sure that the people who matter to you are documented in your day. However, getting the shots can be quite time consuming and you may find that they don’t fully reflect the atmosphere of the day. Traditional does not have to mean you all stand in a rigid line with your hands behind your backs though!
For a more unique and editorial look, some couples choose a contemporary style photographer. This approach focusses on creating high-impact, artistic photographs, often using unusual angles or strong lighting to achieve the desired effect. This style can result in very creative and unique images, however, it doesn’t always succeed in capturing the essence of the day and you need to be careful that the images reflect your personalities and not just the photographer’s personal style.
Personality and preferences are very important so, before making a final decision, you should always meet face-to-face with your preferred photographer to make sure that your tastes, personalities and desired outcomes are compatible.
Choosing a photographer for one of the most important days of your life is a big decision, and it can be easy to feel overwhelmed. But by doing your research and having a clear idea of what you want, you can ensure that you end up with beautiful images that you will treasure forever.
