Let’s take a look at each of these…

Photojournalistic

Wedding photojournalism is said to appeal to the bride and groom that require a series of unique photographs designed to “tell a story” or narrate their wedding day. Wedding photojournalism has become a very popular style of wedding photography and is the art of capturing moments unobtrusively. Normally you barely know that the photographer is there. Normally the Seattle Wedding Photography covers the wedding with a large telephoto lens (although not always) and tries not to get in the way of the story as it unfolds.

Wedding photojournalist’s respond to events as they unfold, they do not manipulate or create events. The resulting images therefore can be unpredictable (as is life unpredictable), some consider this unpredictability as a drawback with this particular style. Personally I feel it’s not a drawback it’s the beautiful aspect of this style, it really is a record of your day.see it from here!

Best in the world: Well for me its Jeff Ascough but many photographers will say Dennis Reggie. Dennis is the father of this style.

Traditional

Traditional wedding photography is a Seattle Wedding Photography style that is a series of contrived posed or ‘set up’ photographs, usually of the wedding party and the couples’ families. Traditional wedding photographers tend to follow a ‘shot list’. Lighting and backgrounds are tightly controlled by the photographer resulting in well exposed images.

The disadvantages of Traditional wedding photography could be issues like, the amount of time the Bride and Groom spend getting their photograph taken. Images can look visually pleasing but stiff due to their static and contrived nature and predictable.

The upside of traditional photography is that you end up a set of professional photographs of your family and loved ones.

Best in the world: Well for me its Monte Zucker.

Illustrative

Wedding PhotographySeattle Wedding Photography who shoot weddings in the Illustrative style, think in terms of design elements by placing their subjects in settings of interesting composition and backgrounds. This photography is usually a creative person who loves design and elements of color and texture. The photographer provides direction to their subject but they are also encouraged to interact. This results in a more spontaneous feel. Illustrative wedding photography is said to bring out the photographer’s ‘artistic’ creative and compositional skills rather than simply capturing a series of moments. read more from http://www.khou.com/news/oh-snap-wedding-photographer-arrested-charged-with-theft/372009867

It’s influenced by fashion, editorial and lifestyle photography.

Illustrative Seattle Wedding Photography is the newest style to break into the wedding scene. Its a modern and fun way to photograph a wedding resulting in artistic and edgy wedding images. Photographers who shoot in this style are skilled both artistically and technically. If I was to pigeon-hole myself into one particular style it would be the category of photography best suited to me.
