The style of wedding photography we do is called photojournalistic wedding photography. Recently, I was runner up for international organization WPJA’s Photojournalistic Photographer of the Year, and won also first and second places in WPPI’s various wedding photojournalism categories.
Wedding photojournalism shares a lot of the same elements as real photojournalism (though there are some important differences, for example the family shots that nobody seems to like but a lot of people seem to want). Capturing the moments and documenting the wedding day without directing in an artistic way is key to my wedding coverage.
The points raised in the following NPR segment are frequently discussed at photographer forums. I thought some of you will find it interesting:
