Wedding Photography Styles
Choosing who will photograph your wedding is its own style decision—just like picking your colours or venue. Consider the look of your photos. Like the ones in your grandparents or parents’ wedding album, classic images are those that stand the test of time—striking, gorgeous and a bit formal. These photos are infused with the shooter’s artistic license. "When things happen naturally, it’s the best." Love this style? Ask to have the simple moments captured. "It’s a photographer’s job to turn your ordinary into beautiful," "If you like a classic look, let them know you’d love a modern take on the shots you’ve seen for years."
Not all portraits have to be a couple in full frame looking at the camera," Photos look too similar if shot this way. We aim to deliver unique and artistic moments that are only for each couple, it becomes very special." A couple’s willingness to have fun and enjoy the moment can take a photo to the next level.
Another style is candid, yet done with some direction and styling—it has an approachable feel and a relaxed result." A good photographer will look for moments but also set the scene, and this is what we aim to achieve.
Rather than posed or highly styled shots, documentary photography captures candid or spontaneous pictures of people, décor and action—in the moment. Look for an intimate space for group portraits. "You get more interactions with everyone and you’ll create better moments," Lewis says.
We at Margaret Zommers Wedding Photography usually aim to take about 80% of the images in an informal candid way, revealing the feelings of love and good will guests and bridal party have for each other. The traditional aspects will be covered formally, as you wish. This has to be thoroughly discussed at the pre-wedding conference.
