Before deciding on who you will hire to document your wedding day, there are some important things to consider.

You're not just buying the services of “another” vendor for your wedding; you're investing in your dreams, memories and one of the best days of your life. That's why it’s so important to find a talented and motivated photographer whose vision, personality and creativity best suits your expectations of your wedding day, YOUR day.

The good news is, nowadays there is a wide range of photography options available. There are more styles and approaches to wedding photography to choose from, the only thing left to do is find the one that’s right for you.

I’m going to try and describe the most commonly used styles and approaches; hopefully it will help you choose the best wedding photographer for you.

Traditional Wedding Photography:

Traditional wedding photography is the most well-known style and approach in the world; however that does not mean its better than the others. You've probably seen this style in your parent or grandparents wedding pictures. This approach is more of a posed, look here and smile style, posing the bride and the groom in key moments. Traditional photographers usually use a planned "shot list", which means you'll get all the important images. However, these old school photographers take forever to set the poses and often miss those spontaneous, real and unexpected moments. We here at Miguel Angel Photography, incorporate traditional styles of wedding photography with a more modern form for more relaxed poses, an editorial, fun, and fresh approach.

Photojournalistic Wedding Photography:

This style is more of a documentary approach where photographs are captured spontaneously to document true moments and emotions as they happen. It includes a series of candid photographs covering the complete wedding celebration. Photojournalistic wedding photographers will give you a series of unique images aimed to "tell the story" of your wedding day using the photographer's instincts, artistic eye and talent. It has become a very popular style, and is used by some of the best wedding photographers around the world. Miguel Angel Photography incorporates photojournalistic styles with all the benefits of the traditional wedding photography for “the most shot” wedding moments. We use the best of both worlds to deliver stunning images that will properly document the best day of your life.

Illustrative and Fashion Wedding Photography:

Illustrative and fashionable wedding photographers place the couple in a desired location to take advantage of good lighting, background, and scenery. Then, once the scene is set, the couple is free to be themselves, relax and have a great time, resulting in more spontaneous photography. This style takes advantage of the photographer's artistic eye, creativity, talent, and sense of style. Rather than capturing a series of moments, this style is more about beautiful, colorful scenery and stylish portraiture of two people crazy in love. :) Illustrative and fashionable wedding photographers use this style for engagement and pre wedding photography sessions. We here at Miguel Angel Photography, personally love this photography style!! We enjoy working closely with the couple to create a unique concept for their engagement and bridal session. We want to make all their wedding photography dreams come true. That’s my job, and I love it!!!
