For the past 10-12 years, a style of Wedding Photography called "Photojournalism" has gained a certain degree of popularity. Photojournalism refers to a style of Photography where the Photographer assumes a passive role as he/she covers a wedding, amassing (usually) a prolific number of casual, collected images throughout the day. Images will represent snippits in time, from the millings about of the Wedding Party prior to the ceremony, through the snapshots of guests lounging at the reception hall. Suggestions and the "Coaching" of subjects are eschewed in favor of the possibility of finding participants or attendees in an unguarded moment.
Photojournalims - and digital photography - has opened the door to a large number of enthusiasts eager to take snaps of the wedding couple on, perhaps, the most important day of their lives together. Sadly, the greater majority of persons calling themselves "Photojournalists" are providing little in the way of Refinement, Craftsmanship and Professionalism. Images delivered to the Bride and Groom often resemble those taken at a backyard BBQ or family gettogether.
Our suggestion? Be sure - and see examples - that your Photographer is well versed in providing exceptional, breathtaking images of the Bride, Groom, and other important participants which reflect the beauty, elegance and importance you place on your Wedding Day.
In an earlier post, we also suggested being open to "Photographer-Assisted Photography" http://blog.robertcharlesphotography.com/index/index/page/3 and incorporating some well-crafted images which will stand the test of time and be treasured for years to come. Your Wedding Pictures are an important part of your day. Opt for the best; you'll never be disappointed.
