Before hiring a wedding photographer that you trust, it will be easy to narrow down the photographer if you know what you want beforehand. Its recommended to look around on the Internet and understand the many different styles of wedding photography to choose from. Among the many, photojournalism has become a popular trendy choice.
What is photojournalism?
Photojournalism is photographs taken during a wedding using an alternative approach where images are spontaneously captured to emphasize moments and emotions of the day. Much like media photojournalism, wedding photojournalism presents a story of the ceremony and reception through the photos. A wedding photojournalist typically shoots with natural lighting, available light or on-camera flash rather than using the traditional, formal posing techniques and studio light.
Why go with photojournalism for your wedding?
This kind of photography makes life easier for the bride and groom. The pictures turn out better, because they have a more natural and real feel to them. Most couples are not professional models, so when put in front of the camera, the result might be stiff and uncomfortable. Photojournalism is fun, playful and the perfect way to capture the most important parts and desired images.
What is the expected result?
The bride and groom have a responsibility on their wedding day. It's to look beautiful, happy, and get married! In the end, the bride shouldnt have to worry about hand placement or if a hair is out of place. The same goes for the groom, he shouldnt feel uncomfortable in his own skin. Picking a photojournalism style can ensure a relaxing day and the peace of mind that the images will turn out to be a beautiful account of a beautiful day.
