What style of photography are you ladies going for, or have had?
I think we are going for a mix of both traditional and modern!
We went for a modern documentary style. Our photographer was fabulous, everything was so natural and well edited.
I love natural! I do think the possed photos are important when it comes to family and stuff, but the natural stuff just screams out way above the posed everything!
Im so pleased you loved yours :)
I think its definitely good to have a mix of both. Have you booked your photographer yet?
I love photojournalistic/modern style photography! :)
My wedding photographer: http://dawnsparks.com/
Yes we booked ours a while back - he does a mixture of photography! We found him at a wedding fayre otherwise there is no way we would have found him. Check him out :)
We are having our e-shoot in August (well he calls it a pre wedding shoot so we know what we like and dont like etc) but we are calling it our e-shoot! hehe
Photojournalistic, to the max. I'm a journalist, so this was super important to me! Here's our photog: http://erikaellisphotography.com/
how would you explain photojournalistic and the differences between that and then modern and traditional??
Im wondering because I actually love both of your websites and wonder if we can incorporate photojournalistic into what we would like.......maybe!
we had a romantic feel to ours, i didnt so much care for the traditional group shoots so we did those real quick for tradition sake. but i wanted lots of romantic , an candids.
we didnt want those stuffy posed ones
Ours was a mix of photojournalistic and tradtional. It was important to me to get someone who understands not only how to capture things as they unfold (photojournalism), but also how to capture faces and bodies in flattering ways (portraits)..I always manage to get double chin shots in candids :P.
The results were mixed for me, I wasn't super thrilled, but then maybe my expectations were too high. :)
I love romanticism in photos - it really says a lot and that is something that we specified with our photographer!
But those posed shots with family etc are also really really important to us :)
Thank you for explaining photojournalistic photography to me scgirl :)
Dont talk to me about double chins lol - I am loosing weight but my face has decided to stay the same which is absolutely killing me - I am determined to loose my double chin before the wedding :P
I love hearing what everyone else feels to be important and what they like and dont like - gives you something further to think about :)
