For most all photographers, photographing a wedding allows them to test all of their photographic skills. We often chuckle when asked “what type of photography do you offer?”
A wedding photographer provides a wide variety of imagery on one single day! We are event photographers, capturing the reception fun, the toasts, the introductions, the non-stop action.
We become photojournalists capturing the emotion of the day especially at the ceremony watching for faces of the bride, the groom, their parents, and other family as well as the wedding party. Freezing that raw emotion as it happens in real-time.
We serve as portrait photographers capturing informal portraits of the bride, groom and the wedding party, guiding the groups into natural moments, yet fun, photographs that all wedding couples want.
We even become still-life or commercial photographers capturing the many details at a wedding including the couple’s rings, flowers, table settings, and decorations.
Basically, if you need any type of photography, feel good about hiring a wedding photographer, as they will usually have the skills needed to capture just about any photographic needs you may have.
Okay, so perhaps not underwater photography!!!
