my wedding photography styles
Helping you to understand the various styles I incorporate in my wedding photography. These include styles that have been chosen by my lovely past couples. Unlike the many other wedding photographers near me, I demonstrate that rather than keeping them separate my wedding image styles are integrated throughout your wedding day at the various stages.
ROMANTIC WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY STYLES
The romantic style is best described as soft and whimsical. Romantic style shoots suit rustic wedding venues and nature backdrops. When edited, I like to give the wedding images warm soft tones and textures.
CREATIVE WEDDING PHOTO STYLES
The Creative Style incorporates advanced camera and flash techniques to create compelling and creative effects.
This incorporates the use of Off-Camera Flash, using our portable studio strobes and softboxes, Long Exposures, crystals / prisms / fairy lights for special effects, and much more.
In the pursuit of getting the shot, as your wedding photographer I will make best use of the environment to enhance the wedding images. The idea is to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.
REPORTAGE | DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY STYLES
Wedding Reportage or documentary wedding photography requires your wedding photographer to be aware of the surroundings, have knowledge of human tendencies and execute patience.
Each image captures an emotion, tells a story, or portrays a mood or feeling. It is all about anticipating that smile, laugh, tear or hug.
I define wedding reportage as placing myself in the right place at the right time, anticipating expressions of emotion and being ready to document events with an eye for storytelling. This style of wedding photography suits more recreational moments, such during the ceremony, reception or the wedding breakfast.
EDITORIAL WEDDING PHOTOS STYLE
My editorial style incorporates poses and post-production often found in fashion photography.
These types of wedding couple photos are generally described as “vogue,” stylish and fashion forward. The backgrounds are usually more dramatic with deep shadows and creative lighting.
ENGAGEMENT | PRE WEDDING PHOTOSHOOT STYLES
Engagement shoots or pre wedding photoshoots are a great opportunity for us to get to know one another.
If you have any specific ideas before the shoot, then please let me know.
SPARKLER WEDDING PHOTOS
One fun activity that I love capturing and many of my past clients have included for their grand exit is the use of sparklers. Sparkler wedding photos are great to capture as it incorporates all your guests gathered together either in a fire tunnel or surrounding you as you dance. They can also be used creatively for the couples shoot such as forming a heart or spelling out LOVE etc.
