Wedding Photography - 4 Specific Styles and Techniques273537
Each photographer has his very own style of taking photos. After many years of shooting, you always can narrow the many techniques and approaches into different style categories. I have narrowed it right down to four different typical formats of Hochzeitsfotos Köln that we cover. We are completely and fully comfortable shooting each one and allow the pair to choose which style best represents their personality and personal flair!
1. Wedding Photojournalism
Being married photojournalistic style of photography requires the photographer not being involved as much as normal. The story is told though the photographs and emphasis is removed from the typical posed and planned pictures. Using this style of wedding photography, we often stand on the sidelines and shoot in the background, becoming as unobtrusive as possible. However, the photos we capture place the viewer right in the mix of what's going on. We capture natural moments that happen in reality with no typical creating and posing an image. With this kind of photography, we consider ourselves to be "photographic storytellers," guiding the viewer from the "story" of your wedding ceremony. This is our choice format of wedding photography. We truly enjoy finding those definite moments of significance that often pass by prematurely and capturing them in your lens.
2. Traditional Photography
Unlike wedding ceremony photojournalistic style, this style of photography has much involvement from your photographer. Lots of the portraits are placed up and posed, incorporating a more traditional approach to wedding pictures. Wedding ceremony photographer behaves as a director of sorts, guiding wedding ceremony party and guests into formations and poses for photos. Even though main style of shooting for your studio will be the Wedding Photojournalistic style, we do have experience in directing and leading wedding events into the posed group and individual formal pictures.
3. Fashion Photography
This style of photography rings true with its name - it is focused on the part of fashion. Brides who request fashion wedding photos to be taken often book studio time outside of a normal big day shoot. This enables the photographers to plot out a session incorporating more lighting and creative techniques. Doing a fashion wedding shoot in studio also enables the bride more freedom in moving into typical fashion poses (like the hands on the hips, hunched back pose) combined with a more serious and "fashion-like" facial expression. Both brides and grooms request this style of wedding photography to incorporate something different and dramatic to their wedding scrapbook.
4. Trash The gown Wedding Photography
Synonymous with its name, this style of wedding photography involves the "dirtying" of bridal dress worn after the fact. This style of photography is also called "fearless bridal" or "rock the frock." Typically, brides choose this after things are said and completed to offer a creative alternative to storing away their wedding dress that they will never wear again. A bride can go out to a beach or a fountain, take pictures in city streets or on railroads, in abandoned buildings or fields, or perhaps get muddied in the woods. Quite often, brides believe this helps them release the deep tension from your wedding. It's rather a bride's declaration how the wedding is completed and the dress should never be worn again, so why not be creative and artistic with it? At our photography studio, we have been more than happy to do business with brides who want to "Trash The Dress!"
