This avoids posed or prompted shots and captures the spontaneity of your wedding day. Moments are not created; they are captured. Photojournalism shows you the joy, emotion, and spontaneity of the day. Photographs are simple and immediate, an instant of life captured on film.

Natural Portraiture

These are semi-posed, natural looking, casual portraits. Individuals or groups of people are brought together without the look of a formal set-up. This style gives a more relaxed, contemporary and fun look.

Formal Posed Photography

Individuals or groups of people are set up by the photographer in formal poses. The complete opposite to candid photography. This is typically the most traditional style of wedding photography and is very popular with older family members. The photos are quite formal but are very consistent. This would include posed portraits of the bride and groom, family, wedding attendants and prompted photos of the traditional "happenings" at your wedding.

Little Details

A component of photojournalistic style. Captures small details that help you to truly remember the day - the beads of a dress, the swirls of frosting on the cake, the pearls on your ears, the blossoms of your flowers, artistic close ups of the rings, etc .
