Wedding Photography – 4 Specific Styles and Techniques

Wedding Photography denmark

Each photographer has his or her own style of taking pictures. After many years of shooting, you usually can narrow the various techniques and approaches into different style categories. I have narrowed it down to four different typical formats of wedding photography that we cover. We are completely and fully comfortable shooting each one and allow the couple to choose which style best represents their personality and personal flair!

1. Wedding Photojournalism

A wedding photojournalistic style of photography involves the photographer not being involved nearly as much as normal. The story is told though the photographs and emphasis is taken off of the typical posed and planned pictures. With this style of wedding photography, we tend to stand on the sidelines and shoot from the background, becoming as unobtrusive as possible. However, the photos we capture put the viewer right in the mix of what is going on. We capture natural moments that happen in reality without the typical setting up and posing a picture.

2. Traditional Wedding Photography

Unlike the wedding photojournalistic style, this style of photography has much involvement from the photographer. Many of the portraits are set up and posed, incorporating a more traditional approach to wedding pictures. The wedding photographer acts as a director of sorts, guiding the wedding party and guests into formations and poses for photos. Although the main style of shooting for our studio is the Wedding Photojournalistic style, we do have experience in directing and leading wedding parties into the posed group and individual formal pictures.

3. Fashion Wedding Photography

This style of wedding photography rings true with its name – it is focused on the element of fashion. Brides who request fashion wedding photos to be taken often book studio time outside of a normal wedding day shoot. This allows the photographers to plan out a session incorporating more lighting and creative techniques. Doing a fashion wedding shoot in studio also allows the bride more freedom in moving into typical fashion poses (such as the hands on the hips, hunched back pose) paired with a more serious and “fashion-like” facial expression. Both brides and grooms request this style of wedding photography to add something different and dramatic to their wedding photo album.

4. Trash The Dress Wedding Photography

Synonymous with its name, this style of wedding photography involves the “dirtying” of the wedding dresses worn after the fact. This style of wedding photography is also called “fearless bridal” or “rock the frock.” Typically, brides choose this after everything is said and done to offer a creative alternative to storing away the wedding dress that they will never wear again. A bride can venture out to a beach or a fountain, take pictures in city streets or on railroads, in abandoned buildings or fields, or even get muddied up in the woods. Oftentimes, brides feel that this helps them release the deep tension from the wedding. It can be a bride’s declaration that the wedding is done and the dress will never be worn again, so why not be creative and artistic with it? At our wedding photography studio, we are more than happy to work with brides who would like to “Trash The Dress!”
