After having recently posted a guest blog on our friends, Charnwood Weddings, website, we wanted to return the offer and feature one of their fantastic blogs. This latest blog is all about Wedding Photography, something a little different from what we normally blog ourselves but equally something worth discussing and reading before your big day.
To pose or not to pose, that is that question? Well, this is really for you to decide. I’m sure you’ve seen many beautiful wedding images where you’ve said – “I want some beautiful natural images like that for my wedding” or “I love that idea and I’d like to try something creative like this”. Well, what does that mean? How do we achieve these images for you? Well, let’s try and break it down…
There’s various names used for different types of wedding photography and we will try and explain what we do to achieve a certain image.
- Documentary photography – This is a style of photography where the person behind the camera blends into the background and lets your day pass by as if they weren’t there. As part of our style, we do this throughout the day to capture natural emotions, smiles, tears, laughter of you and your guests from preparations in the morning until you hit the dance floor. This is the purest form of what you would call “natural images”.
- Traditional Photography – This is a style you would usually see in your parents and grandparents wedding albums. They’re mainly images of the bride and groom together with members of their family outside of the church or at the wedding venue. It focuses more on the key shots as set by you and as photographers we will spend a lot more time organising you all for the formal shots.
- Contemporary – This is more a more creative and modern style. This is a very staged type of photography where as a photographer we will look to find great locations, amazing backdrops and interesting angles to create a more unique set of images for you based on our creative style.
