Weddings are definitely one of the happiest moments in a person’s life.
But, this momentous occasion does not always come as blissful as the
event itself. Days and even months before the big day, couples usually
cram up with the littlest details.

The process of listing down and cutting down everything into specific
details—the wedding date, the venue, the reception, the caterer, the
designer of the gown and suit, all the way down to the wedding coverage—
are the areas where stress usually ushers in.

Due to hectic schedules, most couples usually do not pay much attention
to one of the crucial things in any wedding—the wedding coverage. Despite
the overwhelming tension and excitement, couples do not have to be
nonchalant when choosing their wedding photographers if they want their
fun times and precious memories recorded very well.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PREFERENCES

To avoid making this slight neglect that usually leads disastrous
results, couples have to decide first what kind of wedding photography
they would want to have.

Most wedding photographers today categorize the types of wedding
photography into two: the traditional or classic style and the wedding
photojournalistic style.

The most common style used by wedding photographers today, the
traditional or classic wedding photography is considered as a “timeless”
and the “safest” style because you normally see in countless wedding
albums. Characterized by classic poses of subjects aware of the camera,
this style involves so much control from the photographer because he is
in-charge in arranging individual and group shots before, during, and
even after the wedding.

Having excellent portraiture skills, expect the photographer to focus
more on the quality of the photograph by making the subject look great
from the littlest details. Expect typical wedding photos like pre-
ceremony pictures, formal shots of the bride and groom posing with brides
maids and ushers, cake cutting, garter and bouquet toss, and the like
when you choose a classic wedding photography. This style is ideal if the
couple would want to keep portraits of family members for their wedding
album.

If the couple is adventurous and unconventional, then you might want to
consider the wedding photojournalistic style of photography on your big
day. An increasingly popular style today, wedding photojournalism offers
fresh and new style of taking photos in the occasion. Characterized by
candid shots of the subjects unaware of the moving camera, the
photojournalism style lets the attendees act freely to capture their pure
and true emotion.

Sourcing style from his experience in journalism, the “photojournalist”
pays more attention to minute details and candid shots rather than
arranged ones. He’s more into eyeing interesting moments and capturing
those in his lens to produce a narrative collection of images that tell a
story.

Although some traditional poses will be present, expect photos that show
actual emotions of the bride and groom and of other participants
throughout the duration of the wedding when you choose the
photojournalism style.

In order to avoid ruining the documentation of your wedding, here are
some tips in making your wedding a picture perfect one:

1. Weddings are one of the most exciting chapters of one’s life. Make
sure that you choose a wedding photographer that can meet all your
standards. Meet with the photographer before hand the so you could
discuss the details you want.

2. Inform the important participants about the schedule of photo sessions
and make sure everyone attends the rehearsal to cut down the stress.

3. Have a reception area so guests can be informed about the itinerary.
This will set the occasion in order.
