Weddings are extremely personal affairs; many couples getting married want their own wedding to be different from ones that have come before.
Wedding photography must evolve to stay up to date and in line with the other elements in these less traditional weddings. Below are some examples of the latest Bath Wedding Photography trends.
One popular trend in Wedding Photography in Bath is photojournalism. Photojournalistic wedding photography means the day runs naturally with the Wedding Photographer spending the day taking unposed photographs. This is opposed to the traditional posed photographs, for example outside the Church and in the Wedding car. This style of photography gives much more candid and natural looking photographs. The danger with this style of photography is that the wedding Photographer may miss or fail to capture perfectly some moments that would have been treasured by the Bride and Groom. If you choose a Photojournalistic style of Wedding Photographs then it’s vital that you have an experienced Wedding Photographer in Bath, who won’t miss those key moments.
Another style of Marriage photography is sometimes known as “creative candid” photography. This style is an amalgamation of candid photography which is similar to Photojournalistic although generally less dramatic shots, and the more dramatic photojournalism. Instead of simply watching and letting the events unfold, the creative candid photographer works to set up good candid shots, but without the posing required by the traditional wedding photography style.
The one thing we learn from these different photography styles is that the traditional posed photographs are not as popular as it once was. Many couples are getting away from this style and want their photographs to look as natural as possible. The most popular style of Wedding Photography in Bath at the moment is a mix between the traditional posed photographs and the Photojournalistic style. This gives a lovely mix of pictures for that cherished wedding album.
The photojournalistic style of Wedding Photographs can give the Wedding album a more intimate feel than the traditional posed photographs which can appear a little wooden. At the end of the day there is no right or wrong style of photography, it is simply down to the Bride and Groom to choose the style that they prefer, and that best matches the type of Wedding they are having. If it’s a traditional wedding then you may want a traditional wedding album to match. The same can be said if it’s a modern wedding; a more creative style may suit it better.
There will be a choice of Wedding Photographers in Bath and it’s important that they are experienced in whatever style of Wedding Photography you decide upon. If you are looking for a Wedding Photographer in Bath with the credentials listed above then contact Owen Lucas Wedding Photography.
