One of the most important decisions every couple will have to make is choosing a style for their wedding photos. As practice shows, this should be done several months before the celebration. Many couples go the other way – first they book a specialist they like, and then they think about the style of wedding photos. Unfortunately, in this case, you can be very disappointed, as the result will not meet expectations.

Nowadays, wedding photos in dark shades are especially popular. Despite all this, the classics have not lost their relevance. But what to do if you like several options at the same time? Would you have to sacrifice something and leave only one? No need to worry. Most wedding photographers, including us, change the style of the photo shoot during the celebration. 

1.Traditional

Traditional photos are similar to the pictures our parents and grandparents keep of their weddings. Many contemporary photographers have several photos in their portfolios in this style.

One New York photographer put it this way about traditional photos: “These photos will never go out of style, no matter how many years pass. They’re simple, they’re not crazy, but they’re still beautiful 50 years from now.

2. Photojournalistic

Documentary photographs are sincere, they are filled with emotion. This is the reason why most photographers use a journalistic style in their work. Photos in this style present the wedding as a sketch or news. In them, every moment of the celebration develops naturally and naturally.

3. Editorial

Editorial wedding photos are the direct opposite of those mentioned above. The pictures are staged, as if from fashion magazines. You don’t see this style very often at weddings. 

4. Dark and Moody

Quite unsurprisingly, photos in this dark style look just like they are called: gloomy and moody. Photographers working in this style try to take pictures in such a way that shadows fall on the faces, sharp lines are present. It’s all possible with lighting.

5. Aerial

Of course, not many people would like to have their festivities shot using aerial photography, but photos from a drone are a great addition to this style. This style is suitable for capturing celebratory outings and receptions, provided it all takes place outdoors.

6. Fine Art

Photographs made in this style are associated mostly with fine art. Fine Art is very popular. It is characterized by lightness and brightness.

7. Black and White

Black and white wedding photos are more associated with the editing stage than the style, even though many photographers use black and white cameras. Almost all wedding photographers provide the newlyweds with several black and white shots.

8. Landscape

Landscape shots are an established yet trendy style of photography outside of the wedding industry. In spite of that, Landscape is very popular with photographers who have to work with newlyweds in picturesque places like the mountains or the seashore. Preparation is done in advance, the photographer, together with the bride and groom, explores the area in advance.
