Miami Wedding Photography Style
What are Miami Wedding photography styles? They are the different types of photographs or photography looks that are created by photographers. Wedding photography style can be very subjective. However, there are 4 styles that form the foundation. They are Traditional, Photojournalism, Contemporary, and Fine Art. Each of these styles requires specific knowledge, skills, software, and equipment to successfully create photos. Use the app above to identify what your preferred Miami Wedding Photography Style is. We have broken down each style to give you a better understanding of the styles.
The traditional style is derived from the earlier days of photography when films were less sensitive to light and every exposure was well planned and executed. Even as technology advanced and high-speed films become available to wedding photographers, the traditional style remains an essential style for wedding photos. This style is very often employed to create family portraits, bridal portraits, and pretty much all the formal portraits. In this style, your Miami wedding photographers will be more direct and in control of posing, lighting, and creating the photos. Nothing is left up to chances. Traditional Wedding Photography Style takes more time and pre-planning by the photographer but when it is done right you will have timeless photos for generations to come. These are the photos of your Grandparents and Uncles and your loved ones that come from all over the world to share in your celebration of love.
Of all the styles, Wedding Photo Journalism is the hardest one to master. It requires very minimal direction, a lot of planning, and a whole heap of incognitos ☺. Wedding Photo Journalism style is also referred to as candid style. For this style, the photographer remains out of site and capture each moment as they unfold. The biggest challenge with this style is capturing your subjects at the most appropriate time. For example, the bride and the groom may be sharing an intimate kiss and the backdrop and lighting is just perfect but right as you click your camera shutter button aunt Suzie walks into your frame picking her nose. While this shot may get some laughs it certainly is not the most flattering. Photo Journalism Style is truly a documentary style and what you see is what you get. This means that if you are going to have a complete journalist style for your wedding be prepare to have fewer photos delivered.
Contemporary Classic Style
The Contemporary Classic Style is more of an editorial, fashion, lifestyle all roll into one. This style is generally seen in magazines and on wedding blogs. It encompasses flattering poses, professional lighting when necessary, tremendous attention to details, and heavy post-processing. The Contemporary Classic Style is often reserved for couple’s session. Couples should practice posing in a mirror before their wedding and should look through a few magazines for inspirational photos. Remember that often times the photos in magazines are substantially retouched. So don’t ask your photographer to recreate what you see in a magazine or on a blog. Instead, share the photos with your photographer as photos that you like and let the photographer figure out how to create images that would be similar but still incorporates the photographers taste.
Fine Art Style
Fine Art Wedding Photography Style is the most subjective and can be created in camera or in post-production. Different photographers will have their preferred fine art taste such as black and white, sepia, composition or maybe a special filter. When it comes to black and white and sepia photos, it is more cut and dry, you either have good quality black and white or you don’t. Not every photo makes a good black and white or sepia. So you have to ask yourself if you want all your wedding photos in black and white. Perhaps your wedding is really colorful and you want to show off those colors. On the other hand, if fine art is approached from in-camera as opposed to post-production, the possibilities are endless. Your photographer can control camera settings to create photos that are creative and different. Also, he or she may do in-camera crop such as only showing from the waist down. The bottom line is that the possibilities with this style are endless and what may appeal to one bride may not appeal to another.
To sum it all up, hopefully, by now you have come to realize that all the styles have their pros and cons. The key thing to remember is that your wedding day is a fluid event with lots of changing lighting situations, different backdrops, lots of people and lots of moving parts. In such a situation it may not be possible to employ just one particular style. From our experience, your wedding day often times employ a combination of all the styles. This is particularly true when your coverage is unlimited. So don’t be disappointed if your style is a combination of all the styles.
