Reportage Photography For Weddings

By Charlie Michaels

Choosing a photography technique for a wedding affects how the wedding day will be remembered for years to come. Though there are still requests for customary wedding photography, the demands for such have considerably reduced these days. Most betrothed couples in Singapore now prefer a more daring approach in photography technique. They prefer to have pictures that show the real happening in their wedding instead of pictures that see them and their visitors posing and smiling for the camera. There may be instances in the wedding that they are not aware that their picture is being taken, but that's precisely how they want their pictures taken.

This type of wedding photography is called photojournalism or wedding reportage photography. A lot of wedding photographers in Singapore now offer this kind of photography. The couples don't need to stop and pose for the camera at all times. Rather, the photographer simply clicks and takes pictures with or without the knowledge of the pair or their visitors. With photojournalism, photographers are able to seize the real atmosphere of the event with natural-looking photos.

The couple and their guests don't have to pose and give their best smile in front of the camera. The photographer can nevertheless capture sincere feelings with brief but dear times, like the time when the groom shows an appreciative glance at his new wife, the time when the bride's father sheds a tear as he entrusts his daughter over to her new husband, and when the sleepy flower girl takes a naptime during the ceremony. These instances are what the photographer searches for. These are what makes the event heartfelt, and therefore should be captured on camera.

That's not to say that conventional photography isn't practiced anymore. Taking conventional photography is almost necessary during weddings. A photographer usually asks the bride and the groom to pose together before and after the wedding, and the whole family to pose with the newlywed couple right after the ceremony. These shots and some more are included in the list of must-take photos of the photographer. However, the rest of the images are ideally unscripted.

A singapore wedding photographer may propose traditional or photojournalism photography for wedding events. A lot of couples these days, on the other hand, prefer a combination of the two styles, in which they have a list of photos that must be captured and the rest should show unscripted pictures. Whatever couples choose, both make great photos for the wedding album.
