These are the sort of photographs our parents are most familiar with.
Plain & Simple
Always looking straight to camera
Similar to Traditional but with a
Nothing too fancy.
Still generally looking to camera.
Crisp & Clear
This is magazine style beauty
Expert control of lighting is essential
so ask your photographer how
they’ll achieve this.
Setting up for these images can
take a little time so be patient.
This is not about spontaneity.
This captures the action and
your guests in real-time.
Nothing is set-up or posed.
In choosing this style,
you must provide something for
the photographer to photograph!
If s/he is only there to capture a photo
and not create one, the emphasis is on the couple to provide an atmosphere which will bring a series of moments
the photographer can see.
These photos often look great presented in black & white.
Fast – Detailed – Unrehearsed
Think: bridal party tossing
a Frisbee on the beach,
the guys piggybacking
the girls across a park,
and the bride and groom
splashing in the shallows.
Often employs a range of props,
such as cigars and signage.
Fun & Laughter & Teasing
Has a 1970’s feel to it,
but with a modern,
partially photo-journalistic twist.
High Key (bright, slightly
typically in natural, early evening light
Short Depth of Field
(just a little bit in focus,
the background highly blurred)
1970’s yellowed colours
Creative & Quirky
Use of a varied range of in-camera
and post-production techniques.
Requires expert camera skill,
and the ability to quickly see
opportunities within the setting.
