Capturing Your Wedding in a Photojournalistic Style
by Bob Bucciarelli
How do I find a wedding photographer that will cover my wedding in a true photojournalistic style? First, lets define photojournalistic style as it relates to a wedding. A wedding is a collection of multiple vendors, family members and friends all moving in different directions to prepare for one thing; your walk down the aisle.
All of the action surrounding that walk down the aisle is what wedding photojournalism is all about. The getting ready, the guests arriving, the venue being hand decorated with personal touches, the contemplation, the rejoicing, and the joining of family all need to be captured in an artistic fashion. Wedding photojournalism captures the flow and the emotion of the day as we all gather to witness your event.
Here are some questions to ask your potential photographer:
- Do you visit the venue before the day of the ceremony to plan where and how you will capture the event?
- Do you arrive early to capture the venue, the getting ready, the preparing?
- Do you capture a wedding by yourself or are there two of you?
- Can you show me some examples of wedding photojournalism?
Answered correctly, these questions will help insure your wedding story is told. Consider this: There will be no one at your wedding that will see more of the entire day than your photographers. This is why we always use two photographers. This is why we take our job so seriously. We give you and your future spouse a view into the day that no one else will have.
Through our images, the unique, once in a lifetime events that transpire are preserved for you to have and share. We work in a very relaxed style, encouraging and accepting direction and ideas from you.
