Wedding Photography Trends In America

Oct 20, 2007
Wedding photography in every market is constantly in a state of flux and change. Both people and society evolve constantly, causing evolution in every part of our daily lives.

Weddings have become highly personalized affairs with couples competing to set their even apart from the ones that have come before.

Wedding photography in general must evolve to stay relevant and in line with the other elements in these unusual weddings. Presented here is a look at the latest trends in certain key markets around the country.

The main trend in California wedding photography is photojournalism. Photojournalistic wedding photography allows the marriage day to unfold naturally. Rather than playing an active role in posing shots, the photographer captures events as they happen.

This style of photography results in more candid and natural looking photographs. The major drawback to this style is that an inexperienced photojournalist may miss certain shots or fail to capture the shots well in the ambient light.

If you choose to go with the photojournalistic one, be certain that your photographer is experienced in this style.

The typical Seattle marriage photographer will blend the new trend of photojournalism with a more timeless traditional style. The Seattle trend seems to be creating a marriage album that highlights the best of all worlds, thus offering the most complete account of your special day.

Florida wedding photography has begun to move in the direction of candid photography, which is very similar to the photojournalistic one. The main difference between the candid and photojournalistic styles is that in photojournalism, the shots combine to create a dramatic storyline. Candid photography is more laid back in style, reflecting the general feel of a Florida marriage.

The trend in Toronto marriage photography appears to be "creative candid" photography. This style is a sort of offshoot of both the laid back candid photography popular in Florida and the dramatic photojournalism of the California market.

Rather than simply sitting passively and letting the events unfold, the creative candid photographer works to set up good candid shots, but without the posing required by the timeless style.

No matter which market we talk about, one common thread binds them all. People are trying to get away from pictures that look posed. Couples want their shots to look as natural and as candid as possible.

Natural compositions in photos lend overall warmth to the marriage album, something that was lacking in wedding photography in earlier days.

The style of wedding photography that you choose should match the style of your special day. A traditional ceremony is best documented through traditional photography.

A relaxed destination ceremony calls for equally relaxed candid photography, while a creative themed marriage would be best matched by a dramatic photojournalistic approach.

Despite local trends, wedding photography in most markets have a number of photographers from which to choose, all of whom offer their own personalized approach.

Shop around carefully to find the photographer whose personal style best matches yours, then work together to design the perfect wedding photography package.
