There are a number of different styles of wedding photography, and different photographers will specialise in different styles. Take some time to read up on and learn about the different styles and think about which one suits you best. Some of the main wedding photography styles are as follows:
Traditional, or classic: here a photographer will work from a ‘shot list’ to make sure that they capture all the traditional pictures, and those the couple have specifically requested. Photojournalism: this is more of a documentary-style, where the photographers will follow you and take fewer ‘posed’ pictures, instead trying to tell the story of your wedding in a normal naturalistic style. Illustrative photography: this style is a combination of the first two. It includes posed pictures, but there is more emphasis put on relaxed and informal poses, albeit still with careful composition. Fashion: this style tends to be more dramatic than the others, and will make the subjects appear more glamorous and styled.
