When you hire a photographer for your wedding, you should discuss three primary styles. Typically, you can choose one of these styles or combine one or more to create your own style. Talk to your photographer to determine what type of style will be used for your wedding to ensure you get exactly what you want.

The first style is the posed photos. These consist of people in the wedding party and/or guests who are arranged in a particular way and then photographed. Typically, you will have specific groups that would include the bride, groom, and both parents. Another traditional posed photo is the bride, groom, and the rest of the wedding party. Even if the photos appear to be spontaneous, they are indeed planned.

The second style is traditional photography. In this case, the photographer will take photos that have been determined ahead of time with the bride and groom. Some may be traditional and some may be unique. While you would find posed photos in this group, you would also find photos that might include the couple lovingly dancing together, or waving out the window as they escape the mayhem in the getaway car.

The third style is called photojournalism. For these photos, the photographer you hired will move about the wedding and reception, taking photos as he or she spots those one-of-a-kind, special moments. Some photographers will work with an assistant so that while the main photographer captures the posed or traditional photos, the assistant works on this style. One of the great aspects of this particular style is that spontaneous moments are captured that might otherwise be overlooked.

In addition to the three primary styles, there are also people that you want to capture. As you meet with the photographer, talk about the type of people you want to get photos of, which might include children, stepfamily members, elderly people, and so on. The photographers should be sensitive to certain people in order to get the best shots.

For instance, children will generally do well at the beginning of the wedding and at times during the reception. However, because they are children, they become tired and cranky. For this reason, the photographer should be aware of this and capture as many photos as possible during the calm times. The same would be true for the elderly. They generally have more energy at the beginning and slowly start to fade.

If there are divorced parents andstepfamilies involved, which is the case more and more, you want to make sure your photograper is aware of any uncomfortable relationships prior to the wedding and reception so feathers are not ruffled and your special day ruined. If there are specific people who do not get along, you and your future spouse may want to talk lovingly but candidly with them before your wedding to ensure they remember this is your special day and you want everything to run seamlessly.

Another consideration for your wedding photographs that is sometimes overlooked is the actual décor and cultural or religious aspects. After all, you have probably spent a small fortune on your wedding and you want to have everything captured. All of the decorations that include flowers, archways, altar, Bible, all of the important pieces of your wedding that made it the special day it was should be photographed.

Additionally, if your wedding has specific religious or cultural elements, you want to ensure those too are captured. For instance, some weddings include the groom stomping on a glass wrapped in cloth after the I dos, as a gesture of prosperity. Some couples jump over a broom together to signify a lifetime of happiness. Then, some couples take communion together at the start of the ceremony. All of these are important and should be captured in the photos.
