Planning your wedding photography gets easier when you know the styles you prefer and receive input and advice about the photographer. We share 5 photography styles you can definitely expect to see a lot.

1. Photojournalistic

If you don't like posing, the photojournalistic style is ideal for you. A photographer who approaches your wedding as a photojournalist will give you pure documentary coverage of your wedding.

Since the focus is on reportage of the wedding, a wedding photojournalist-style photographer and videographer will spend most of their time taking pictures without restriction and capturing the action as it happens.

This is a popular style as brides prefer candid shots that capture the raw moments that they might have missed during the craziness of the day. This includes documenting the morning preparations to celebratory moments with the nearest and dearest to them!

2. Artistic

Artistic photography is aptly described when the photography can double as both a wedding photo and an individual standalone piece of art to display in your home. These photography shots are unique and you will not find it looking similar to anyone else’s. The creative composition of the photography often plays with natural light and abstract art form.

3. Modern Classic

A new emerging style that captures traditional wedding photography–that looks great in a printed album afterwards–and modern posing. This style of photography showcases a lot of the details like clean imagery, classic lines, and other details of the wedding set up. Modern classic styles are consistent and most photographers will exhibit a hybrid of this and other styles, like the photojournalistic style.

4. Editorial

This style goes for dramatic backgrounds and amazing lighting. The mastery of editorial photos is often seen in overseas shoots where lush textures add to the editorial image or the breathtakingly beautiful architecture lends more character to the images. Editorial photographers are well skilled with lighting techniques to produce technically perfect images.

5. Lifestyle

Lifestyle photography is similar to photojournalistic styles but done with more styling for spontaneous moments in a set scene. Couples usually opt for different outfits from their classic traditional outfits for a more candid and casual vibe.

You can expect the photographer to be more vocal and have more direction with the posing and the angle of the shots than the other styles that go with a different perspective lens.
