Most Requested Wedding Photography Styles

Wedding photography is just as (if not more) important than your wedding venue. It is the only element in your wedding that will create lasting mementos of your very special day. However, all too often, when you research wedding photography in the Web or first discuss this with a Colorado Arab Wedding Photographer, the terminologies—particularly the styles—can be baffling.

Here are some exclusive insights from Saiaf Films to enlighten us about the most popular wedding photography styles that are widely used by wedding photographer.

Black and White Photography

This non-colour photography style if typically used by photographers to create a classic, timeless effect. Black and white photography is great for enhancing the mood of an image or bringing particular interest with the use of light and composition. Truly timeless, black and white is a better choice for mixed or poor lighting conditions and it can be less distracting, making the happy couple the absolute focus of the shot.

Color Photography

It simply brings your photos to life and is, at its best, for vibrant spring and summer weddings with lots of natural light and bright colour schemes. Color brings an extra element to light and shape. If used correctly it can be a tool for isolating or bringing a particular subject into focus. Colour images can grab your attention, speaking volumes whether the colour on your wedding day is subtle or shouting, vibrant or saturated.

Reportage Photography

This is the most favourite photography style among bridal couples—natural-looking, non-posed photography that follows the day as it naturally unfolds. Reportage is the style more suited to couples who don’t like posing endlessly for the camera. Reportage allows the Female Arab Wedding Videographer to capture moments as they happen in a style that leaves the bride and groom to enjoy their day and still get amazing images and/or videos of their day.

Aged/Sepia-Toned Photography

A choice made popular by image apps like Instagram, this retro effect is added after your photographs have been taken, making them look old and timeless. This technique can be used to give a photo a vintage or styled look. And if used well, it can improve the look of out of focus elements in an image.

Photojournalistic Style

This quite resembles a bit with reportage photography as the photos taken in this style are non-posed and the Muslim Wedding Photographer aims for natural-looking photos. Telling the story of your unique day, these photographs capture the atmosphere and often focus on the emotion of the subject, as well as the finer details of your wedding. A good photograph will usually create a reaction of some kind when you look at it. Photojournalistic style aims to connect the photographer directly to the viewer, so it is important that a couple understands and appreciates that.

Formal/Traditional Photography

The most common type of wedding photography, your photographer will capture the key points of the day—like signing the register and cutting the cake—as well as taking staged/directed shots of you and your guests. And although wedding photography has changed so much over the year, formal photographs will always have their place. As well as being the best way to present the important guests in their best dress, it’s also a great opportunity to get lasting pictures of family and friends together.

Portraits

Portraits are close up or full length photos that focus on one person or the happy couple. These are usually the images that end up on the wall of a couple’s home. At a wedding, a brief portrait session is a chance for the bride and groom to escape the wedding party as their wedding photographer captures their first real moments of marriage.

All these styles may project different flairs and focus, but you can certainly ask Saiaf Films to use two or more photography styles to suit your preferences and add life to your wedding album.
