Wedding Photography

Wedding Photography plays a very important role in making your wedding day memorable and special.
Choosing the right photographer is just as difficult as choosing the type of wedding photography you want him to execute.
I suggest you first type �wedding photography� into your preferred search engine and look at some pictures, just to get a rough idea of what each type of wedding photography looks like.

You will find tons of pictures that seem to be quite different from each other, in terms of effects, colors, lighting and settings. How can it be? Well, there are three main types of wedding photography, that’s why.
You may choose among classical/traditional wedding photography, fashion/contemporary wedding photography and the one that is most in fashion nowadays, photojournalistic wedding photography.

Whatever you choice, I suggest you find a wedding a photographer that has experience in executing the type of wedding photography you and your partner prefer and show him both the place where the wedding ceremony will be held and the reception party venue.

The reason why it is important that he sees them is because, depending on your chosen locations he will be able to advise you as to what form of wedding photography is best for you.
For example, if you plan on holding your reception party at a 5 star hotel or any other luxury venue, the photographer will probably suggest your opt for fashion wedding photography as those types of location are perfect for contemporary wedding photography. That is because most hotels and luxury venues are decorated with statues, fountains and have very spacious gardens. The lush grass combined with the water spilt out of the fountains creates the perfect conditions for contemporary wedding photography to be executed in the best possible way.

However, regardless of the type of wedding photography you choose, remember that there are certain moments your photographer has to absolutely immortalize, no matter what the form of wedding photography he is specialized in.

First off, he should take a few pre-wedding photos.
Wedding photography, in fact, is meant to give you memories of your wedding day, not only of your wedding ceremony and reception party. The photographer should get to your place early in the morning and start taking photos so that you have a souvenir of those exciting pre-wedding moments.
Now, if you would like to have a storybook of your special day, I suggest you opt for
photojournalistic wedding photography, which is very much in fashion nowadays.

The reason why so many couples prefer photojournalistic wedding photography to classical wedding photography and contemporary wedding photography is because the final result is usually very beautiful.
In fact, photojournalistic wedding photography, unlike classical wedding photography, has nothing to do with artificial looking settings, poses, fake smiles and group portraits. On the contrary, photojournalistic wedding photography aims at giving you a wedding album that looks nothing like a traditional album.
Reportage wedding photography is chosen by those couples who want their whole special day to be immortalized by a professional photographer who is supposed to stay in the background for the whole day, without even letting people notice his presence.

That is why reportage wedding photography produces such natural and spontaneous photographs.
Once you have made up your mind as to what form of wedding photography is best for you, do not forget to ask the photographer to take pictures before the ceremony, during the ceremony and the reception party. He should not omit anything.

After all, all forms of wedding photography imply pictures of the bride and groom, every single guest, the band, the chosen venues, the wedding rings, the wedding cake and so forth�
