When it comes to your wedding photos, go with a style that suits you. You’ll want your wedding day images to reflect your style, personality, interests and vibe. When you look back at them, you’ll want to say, “Yep. That’s us.”
There many styles of photography to choose from. You might enjoy classic and traditional, or maybe you want quirky, or romantic or candid. You may want your photographer to add heavy filters or you might want natural images.
Toronto wedding photographer Danielle Jager, of Pic Jagger, says, “Traditional photography, in my view, is more documentary and sits back and captures the day as it unfolds. Editorial photography stages and poses you, but in a way that doesn’t look staged. Couples should choose whichever look they’re drawn to and how they feel in front of the camera. If you need direction in front of the camera, editorial might be for you. If you don’t want to spend too much time taking photos, a more traditional approach might be for you.”
When it comes to making your wedding photos go smoothly, Danielle has this advice. “Choose a photographer that you feel relaxed around and knows how to get you comfortable. Also, be yourselves! Embrace and interact with your partner the same way you would when you’re at home. And don’t forget to allocate enough time for photos! The wedding day goes quickly and typically runs behind, which inevitably eats into photo time. Budget enough time for pictures to prevent stress and make sure you get a lot of photos of you and your spouse!”
