Photography is one of the very creative and well paid off profession. But as the way it is interesting, it is also very technical. But nowadays the photography has many branches like wildlife photography, wedding photography, film photography, modeling photography and so on.
Wedding photography is the photography which is related to the activities relating to weddings. It includes photos of the couple before wedding and also the coverage of marriage and greeting. It also includes the photographs of the people who attended the wedding and the related functions to the wedding. The wedding has become a grand affair with the involvement of many agencies and professionals in it.
It is main marketable effort that helps the bulk of the efforts for a large number of shooting studios or individual photographers. There are 2 main aspects to wedding photography that are known these days i.e. Traditional and Photojournalistic.
Traditional wedding photography provides for more classically posed images and a great deal of photographer control and interaction on the day of the wedding, which has become obsolete these days.
Photojournalistic wedding photography takes its nod from editorial reporting styles and emphasizes on straight and unposed pictures with slight photographer contact. These are two extremes and many of today’s photographers will fall somewhere in the middle of these two styles.
A third and famous style which is becoming more popular these days is a fashion-based approach. In modern wedding photography, photojournalistic pictures of the occasions are shared with posed pictures that are motivated by editorial fashion photography as you can see in different magazines like Vogue, Vanity Fair and others.
The terminology contemporary wedding photography is basically used to explain wedding photography that is not customary. The focus in contemporary photography is to capture the scene from the occasion, so the person who is viewing the picture has an appreciation of how the marriage was, instead of a number of fixed poses. Contemporary wedding photography is something much more than capturing casual photos and includes the use of work of art, lights, and correct timing to capture photos that have a powerful visualization.
