7 Wedding Photography Styles to Choose From

Choosing the best wedding photographer begins with determining which style most appeals to you and your partner. Discover the various wedding photography styles available for your special day.


4 Things to Consider When Looking for a Wedding Photographer

When looking for a potential wedding photographer, keep the following details in mind:

1. Check his/her availability.  Make certain that the wedding photographer you select is available to shoot on your wedding day. Even if they appear to be ideal, if they are unavailable on your preferred date, keep looking.

2. Learn more about their pricing packages. Many wedding photographers provide a variety of pricing options for various tiered packages. They may charge extra for destination weddings (as a travel fee), a second photographer, engagement photos, or rehearsal dinner photos. Be aware of all potential costs that could quickly add up.

3. Find out how and when you'll get your photos. The photographer you select should be able to deliver your photos when and how you want them (digitally or as prints). For example, your photographer may offer to edit the majority of the photos down to a select group and give you a sneak peek while the editing is taking place.

4. Examine samples of the photographer's work. You'll want to see examples of the photographer's photo style to make sure it's what you're looking for on your wedding day. If they take serious, formal photos and you want whimsical, fun, impromptu shots, keep looking for the right working style match.


7 Wedding Photography Styles

Whether you prefer formal posed shots or candid shots in natural light, there are several wedding photography styles to choose from, including:

1. Aerial: Aerial photography entails the photographer photographing your wedding day from above, using drones equipped with digital cameras. Though you will most likely want traditional wedding photography as well, aerial photography can be a great addition to your wedding day, capturing unique, candid shots of your ceremony and reception.

2. Classic: Photographers who use a classic or traditional style of wedding photography shoot from eye level, resulting in posed and formal wedding photos. Even if you opt for a different style of photography for your wedding, most photographers will include traditional family portrait-style group shots of the wedding party.

3. Dark and moody: A dark and moody photography style uses shadows and light to create a striking, dramatic effect, giving your wedding photos a cinematic look. Photographers frequently use this style of photography for outdoor weddings, then enhance the moodiness and muffle bright colors for a desaturated look in the editing process.

4. Editorial: Editorial wedding photography is similar to what a photographer would do for a glossy magazine layout. Pose shots with intricate lighting in a controlled environment, similar to a professional photoshoot, are to be expected.

5. Fine art: By styling, directing, and composing each image for your photo album into a work of art, fine art wedding photographers use their vision of your big day to create artistic wedding photography with a point of view and a story to tell. Fine art wedding photography varies greatly depending on the photographer, so ask to see samples from previous weddings to get a sense of their artistic approach.

6. Landscape: Landscape photography is ideal for destination weddings on a tropical beach or in the mountains. Landscape wedding photographers include the surrounding scenery in their wedding photographs, capturing the beauty of the wedding venue as well as you and your partner.

7. Photojournalistic: Photojournalistic wedding photography, also known as reportage or documentary-style photography, captures your wedding through candid photos, often in natural light, as the events unfold, without attempting to force or pose anyone for group photos. Photojournalism-style photographs frequently tell a story about the day without disrupting the flow of events by pausing and starting or devoting specific time to specific setups.
